What are the differences between guilt and shame? And how could it help our clients to have a better understanding of those differences?
We thought it could be useful for you to have a side-by-side comparison of these powerful emotions that you could share with your clients.
Because understanding these differences could help our clients begin to dismantle their negative self-judgments.
So we created this infographic. (Please feel free to make a copy to give to your clients.)
(When you make copies to share, please be sure to include the copyright information. We put a lot of work into creating these resources for you. Thanks!)
If you found this infographic helpful, you can hear more about how to help clients break free of a powerful cycle of shame from some of the top experts in the field, like Bessel van der Kolk, MD; Marsha Linehan, PhD; Peter Levine, PhD; Richard Schwartz, PhD; Pat Ogden, PhD; Stephen Porges, PhD; Shelly Harrell, PhD; and more.
