Understanding and Addressing Shame in Health and Wellness Service Delivery | Tracy Ziebell


Shame is one of the silent enemies of preventative health and help-seeking. While there is plenty of stigma that can show up in the health and wellness industry, shame is a specific type of self-stigma that can prevent individuals from investing time, energy, and money into their own health and well-being. The good news is that health and wellness professionals and employers can deepen their understanding of shame and design strategies to address it to change the tide for those who suffer and avoid caring for themselves as a result.

Following this session, participants will be able to:

  1. describe the impact of shame on the body and how it can prevent people from taking care of their health.
  2. identify when shame may be impacting a person's ability to seek health services and comply with treatment plans.
  3. formulate a toolkit for addressing body shame with compassion to help patients recover ownership of their health.

NOTE: "Registration" for individual sessions is not required. Once onsite, you may attend any sessions on the day(s) for which you are registered.
