Elaine Perliss, CHt

Presented By: Elaine Perliss, CHt

NOW Live on Zoom: The American Hypnosis Association is proud and excited to now offer students around the world this exciting, Interactive Distance Learning (IDL) seminar, LIVE on Zoom.

Regardless of where you live in the world you can attend this live interactive online course directly from your home or office through Zoom Meetings. Live questions and answers with your Instructor and interaction with your peers delivered in real time.

Bonus: In addition to the live seminar, we will also provide you with 180 days access to the Zoom recording from that day’s live on Zoom seminar. This allows you to review and study the course on streaming video after the live event.


These emotions have the ability to empower or cripple your clients. Understanding Guilt vs. Shame can literally be the difference between the success, or failure of your clients moving forward in therapy.

Elaine will share with you tools for success in dealing with these potentially destructive emotions, and will give you insights on how to utilize their power to assist your clients in moving through their challenges to reach their goals.

  • Help your clients increase their success, clarity, confidence, direction and purpose
  • Learn the difference between Guilt and Shame
  • Gain techniques to recognize them and assist your clients in reaching their goals
  • Understand root causes and how they manifest in our behaviors
  • Help your clients turn mistakes into opportunities, not ingredients for failure

Help Your Clients Understand and Overcome:

  • Blocks to success, the Losing Syndrome
  • Low self-esteem, low self-confidence
  • Procrastination caused by over-thinking, second guessing, negative self-talk
  • Perfectionism
  • Judgments, prejudice, OCD, addictions, bullying, narcissism
  • 3 hours of live Zoom instruction with your instructor Elaine Perliss
  • 25-page The Power of Releasing Guilt and Shame workbook (PDF)
  • Total 4 Elective Hours/CEU Certificate

Amazing class as it was very powerful to learn the differences between guilt and shame. I enjoy all the classes that Elaine puts together especially her detailed workbook. I wish there had been a video to watch for this class in addition to the live on Zoom to help reinforce what I learned. Either way, I am thankful I took this class as now I know the difference which gives me more tools to help my clients as well as myself.

Understanding if your client is exhibiting signs of guilt or shame and helping them to diffuse their responses to one or both will depend on their perception of past experiences. I will now be checking on HMI and AHA videos that are directly addressing this topic.
