Video Recording: Shame and the Traumatic Impact of Self-Deficits

The Joseph Palombo Center for Neuroscience & Psychoanalytic Social Work at the Institute for Clinical Social Work announces

The Fall Conference:

Shame and the Traumatic Impact of Self-Deficits

Featuring: Joseph Palombo
Author of: Learning disorders and disorders of the self in children and adolescents; Nonverbal learning disabilities: A clinical perspective; Neuropsychodynamic treatment of self-deficits: Searching for complementarity; and co-authored with Bendicsen and Koch, Guide to Psychoanalytic Developmental Theories

This video recording is from a conference that addressed the problems that confront patients with neuropsychological impairments, such as ADHD, dyslexia, executive function disorder, and other brain-based disorders. Some can often feel intense shame and humiliation. At times, the impact of these self-deficits can be traumatic and lead to dissociative responses. The presenters explored the defenses that they developed that often lead to dysfunctional feelings, thoughts and behaviors. For therapists, the challenge is to find ways of responding to such patients and to help them deal with their issues at the level of multiple domains of self-experience.

Clinical Applications: Jannira Roman case presentation
