Course Description

Dissolve Shame to Bypass Treatment Barriers Module 1, 2, 3, and 4

Session Recordings and Analysis


Shame expert, Susan Warren Warshow, creator of Dynamic Emotion Focused Therapy (DEFT), presents several treatment sessions with a depressed man over a 9-month period. 


This is a recording of a 4-part webinar series and includes lecture, recorded psychotherapy sessions and Q&A with webinar participants. 


Both therapeutic partners are likely to face shame within themselves on their joint journey. This program takes a closer look at those moments when shame can cause either the client or therapist to avoid the risks necessary to spark change. Learn specific shame-sensitive interventions when addressing common self-protective strategies that block emotional intimacy.

  • Identify how shame restricts both client and therapist
  • Employ "shame sensitivity” to access unconscious emotion
  • Apply specific skills to engage a collaborative partnership
  • Utilize the Healing Triad when working with treatment barriers
  • Explain the Therapeutic Transfer of Compassion for Self
