    “Shame and Guilt: How Science Can Inform Practice"

    with nationally recognized presenter

    June Tangney, PhD

    Friday, August 28, 2020  

    Noon – 3:00 PM CDT

    In this webinar, Dr. Tangney will briefly summarize 30 years of research indicating that shame and guilt are distinct emotions with very different implications for adjustment and behavior. On balance, guilt is the more moral and adaptive emotion. She will then present a framework for thinking about managing maladaptive shame (and maladaptive guilt) in the therapy context. The presentation concludes with a discussion of the complex roles shame and guilt play in two domains of current concern – the criminal justice system and the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Participants attending this live webinar may receive 3 CEs for psychologists.
    This program also meets the criteria of an approved continuing education program for mental health practice.

Dr. Tangney’s research on the development and implications of shame and guilt has been funded by NIDA, NICHD, NSF, and the John Templeton Foundation. Currently, her work focuses on moral emotions and cognitions among jail inmates. She draws on theory and research from social and clinical psychology to develop novel brief interventions tailored to the needs of the 12 million people who cycle through US jails annually.
