Stigma, The Game of Appearances - Daniel Linder, MFT

Stigma revisits how stigma still, despite the disease concept, dictates how we behave in a variety of situations. We will discuss stigma as a weapon that punishes any deviation from the established standards of desirability that makes us want to misrepresent ourselves and hide our problems.

Professionals who have either lost sight of, or underestimate the multitude of overpowering, far-reaching, shame inducing effects of stigma are at risk of counter-transference issues that can undermine treatment. We know that clinicians are human beings, not impervious to social conditioning.
