Shame is the fear that we are not good enough to be accepted, and that those things we have done, said, or are will disconnect us from others. It is a critical part of the cycle of SUDs and influences client behavior, the recovery process, and relapse. Shame is rarely discussed, and it thrives in silence. In this session we will address how we as substance use professionals can become comfortable raising issues of shame and how we can safely work with clients on their shame. I will review the difference between guilt and shame – terms which are frequently used to mean the same thing, which can be harmful. I will also share the four elements of Shame Resilience Theory to build resilience by connecting our authentic selves and cultivating meaningful relationships with other people.
