Description

There is much more to shame than its reputation as a negative emotional state. This clinical book delves into the role of shame in many complex issues such as personality disorders, anxiety, depression and addictions. In each example the authors show how an understanding of the positive side of shame can be translated into practical therapeutic interventions.
