Linda Hartling, Ph.D.; From Humiliation to Appreciation: Walking Toward Our Talk
This talk suggested that chronic lack of appreciation leads to demoralizing feelings of humiliation. Using Relational-Cultural Theory as a fundamental framework, Linda Hartling, Ph.D., associate director of the Jean Baker Miller Training Institute at the Wellesley Centers for Women, explored how this phenomenon—lack of appreciation—foments social pain through devaluation, demoralization, and disconnection. Further, integrating methods developed by an international network studying human dignity and humiliation, Hartling described a relational approach for helping others and ourselves move out of appreciation deprivation by “walking our talk.” *Please note that data and background information cited in this presentation were current for the date of the presentation but should not necessarily be considered the most current research on the related issues today.
