DESCRIPTION

Across disorders, disgust and shame play unique roles in behavioral avoidance. The purpose of this presentation is to provide audience members with a deepened understanding of the emotions themselves, their functional contributions to avoidance, and the behavioral "antidotes" that counter these emotions' influence on suffering, isolation, and behavioral restriction. There will be time allotted for questions and answers. Attendees are encouraged to apply content from this presentation to case material of their own, and to raise de-identified, case-specific queries if they wish.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  1. Attendees will be able to conceptualize disgust and shame by their physiological, attributional, and behavioral correlates.

  2. Attendees will be able to delineate the main patterns of behavioral avoidance that frequently accompany disgust and shame.

  3. Attendees will be able to develop transdiagnostic functional analyses of disgust- and shame-driven behaviors.

  4. Attendees will be able to design client-specific, behavioral approach tasks to target disgust- and shame-driven avoidance.
