Shame has been historically described as far back as the Book of Genesis in the Bible. But how well do we understand shame and why does it matter? Shame has biological components that, when understood, can be powerful for our ability to counsel others. Understanding these biological components of shame can also increase the ability of those with substance use disorders to progress in treatment and recovery. This training will discuss what shame is, the neurobiology of shame, and what we can do about it.
