Item description for Shame: Theory, Therapy, Theology by Stephen Pattison...

This interdisciplinary study brings together many contemporary discourses about shame within a new critical perspective. It will be an invaluable, stimulating resource for all those who are concerned with understanding shame and assisting those whose live

Publishers Description
Stephen Pattison considers the nature of shame as it is discussed in the diverse discourses of literature, psychology, psychoanalysis, philosophy, history and sociology and concludes that shame is not a single unitary phenomenon, but rather a set of separable but related understandings in different discourses. Situating chronic shame primarily within the metaphorical ecology of defilement, pollution and toxic unwantedness, Pattison goes on to examine the causes and effects of shame, including its use as a means of social control, before discussing means of healing shame and integrating individuals and groups whose lives are blighted by it. He then considers the way in which a particular religious tradition, Christianity, has responded to and used shame as a preface to suggesting ways in which religion might alleviate rather than exacerbate shame. His analysis raises fundamental questions for religious thought, organization and practice in what is increasingly regarded as an age of shame.

Reviews - What do customers think about Shame: Theory, Therapy, Theology?

The Best Book on Shame  May 26, 2003
I went through a period of obsession with the concept of shame and read everything I could get my hands on. This is by far the best book on shame. It combines a solid theoretical basis with useful therapizing helps for dealing with shame.

After reading this book, I read two other books by Stephen Pattison and I've become a fan. Shame:... is by far the most human of his books; the others are a bit more dry and you don't get such a sense of the humanity of the author, but nonetheless are excellent books.
