Gibbard Lecture: Entering a Mind Filled with Relentless Shame: A Frame for Exploration and Engagement in Psychotherapy

Richard Chefetz, M.D.
Entering a Mind Filled with Relentless Shame: A Frame for Exploration and Engagement in Psychotherapy (Grand Rounds Workshop # 15-128-30)

We will explore how there is neither a more pervasive nor more toxic emotional experience than discovering a mind is wrapped in a caul of shame, as if from birth onward. The withering of human potential that shame provokes sometimes creates a paradoxical oasis of misery from which a suffering soul cannot seem to be coaxed. In this exploration, shame will become more visible through an understanding of its physiologic and somatic origins, relevant neurobiology, role in attachment, and context in the organization of a multiple self-state model of mind.

Attendees will receive 1.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits. No registration is required.

Location: The Davis Auditorium

Gibbard Workshop: Personality Pathways to Depression: A Clinical Conversation with Dr. Jonathan Shedler

It has become increasingly common to refer to depression as a "disease", but it may be more helpful to view it as a nonspecific symptom--the psychic equivalent of fever--of a wide range of underlying disturbances. For most patients, these disturbances are rooted in characteristic patterns of thinking, feeling, attaching, coping, defending, relating and experiencing self and others--in other words, in personality. This seminar will focus on common personality pathways to depression and their practical treatment implications, with discussion of clinical case material and clinical vignettes to demonstrate case formulation and treatment strategies. Attendance and clinical affiliation will be recorded. There is no charge to participants.

Community Medical School: Personality or Mental Illness? Understanding the Links between Traits and Disorders

What behaviors indicate a mental illness rather than someone's personality? New psychiatric disorder definitions and school shooting-related media headlines have piqued interest in understanding the boundaries between what is considered a trait and what is considered an illness. Find out what determines temperament and personality and discover the links between personality traits and psychiatric diagnoses. Presented by David Rettew, M.D., Associate Professor of Psychiatry.
