The Upside of Shame: Therapeutic Interventions Using the Positive Aspects of a "Negative" Emotion.


The Upside of Shame: Therapeutic Interventions Using the Positive Aspects of a "Negative" Emotion

Vernon C. Kelly, Jr. and Mary C. Lamia

W.W. Norton


214 pages




The reputation of shame as a negative emotion has obscured the abundant insights and learning that can be gained when people experience the affect, say Kelly and Lamia, so patients in treatment often conceal the shame and the information it provides, and both patient and psychotherapist are perplexed. Examining theoretical consideration and clinical applications in turn, they discuss such topics as script formation and the development of shame emotions, defensive and coping responses to shame, narcissistic personality disorder, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and couples therapy.
