In this presentation, Dr. Ellen McGarity-Shipley (MScPT) will delve into the fascinating world of psychophysiology, discussing how victim-blaming narratives often encountered in health rhetoric and healthcare settings may actually be harming patient’s bodies through an emotion: shame. Ellen will summarize her research on this topic and present actionable strategies physiotherapists can use to look beyond individuals and towards the societal environments in which they live to improve the quality and effectiveness of the care we deliver.
