Images of traumatized children in cages, reports of systematic secrecy and enabling of child sexual abuse, emaciated children starving in the midst of ethnic cleansing, dead marine life washed up across the coasts of Florida, and dead pigs floating in flooded barns come to mind.
Therapists are affected at least twice by these realities; you see them in the news and then you hear about client’s reactions and concerns in your office most days. An underlying and primitive emotional reaction is the feeling of disgust and its accompanying relatives of helplessness, despair, and terror.
This seminar is designed to acquaint you with clinical research on the emotion of disgust and to provide context for processing this powerful emotion for yourself and with your clients.
