Shame wraps a mind in a caul of selfloathing, as if from birth onward, in the wake of interpersonal trauma. The withering of human potential that the shame spectrum of emotion provokes sometimes creates a paradoxical oasis of misery from which a suffering soul cannot seem to be coaxed.
In this exploration, shame will become more visible through an understanding of its physiologic and somatic origins, relevant neurobiology, affect theory, role in attachment, and context in the organization of a multiple selfstate model of mind. Entry points and pitfalls in the clinical approach to shame will also be explored. (All Levels)
