Description and Learning Objectives

Unmasking the Secret Moral Emotions: In the first part of this webinar, the focus is on the secret moral emotions that are rarely admitted and often denied. Dr Lynch teaches about moral judgments, transgressions, and the emotions shame, humiliation, and embarrassment, and introduces the negative moral emotions envy, contempt and disgust. The second part of the webinar dives deeper into the ‘big three’ of the negative moral emotions: envy, contempt and disgust. Dr Lynch teaches you how to differentiate between these social emotions using clinical examples, and explains why it matters to be able to recognize these emotions when it comes to overcontrolled clients. Webinar Duration: 1 hour and 50 minutes

Treatment of the Negative Moral Emotions: In this webinar Dr Lynch uses a video role-play example to teach you, step by step, how to conduct a chain and solution analysis to treat negative moral emotions such as envy, bitterness and resentment and problematic behaviors such as secretly sabotaging.  Webinar Duration: 1 hour and 44 minutes

Course length: 3 hours 34 minutes
