Shame has been called "an unspoken epidemic." As our society develops more sensitivity and awareness of the impact of trauma, professionals are also recognizing the impact of shame and its connection to relationship disruption, the opioid crisis and substance use, mental health issues, and body image and disordered eating problems.

The Summit for Clinical Excellence invites you to join experts on the concepts of shame, trauma, and addiction to hear their perspectives, discuss treatment methodologies with your colleagues, and explore ways to improve the lives of your patients, your communities, and even yourselves.
