Lesson 5 Trauma and Shame

In addition to all the health problems trauma can cause, it is also linked to shame. And shame comes out in different ways - and we often refer to being trapped in the Compass of Shame. You'll learn about this connection in this lesson. And even if you've seen Brene' Brown's TEDTalk on shame, please watch it again - the link is on your Supplemental Resources handout. I've added other videos from Brene' Brown because frankly, she's the worlds best shame reseacher and she's able to talk about it in ways we can connect with.

This lesson can bring up some tough emotions, so be sure you are self-regulating and using your journal to process feelings and thoughts. As always, take a short quiz after watching the videos.
