Book Description

Shame is a sense of the self as defective and worthless. This is a painful state. As painful as shame is, it also can make us preoccupied and self-centered. We become emotionally unavailable to others. As we let go of shame, we create circles of security around us where people can be themselves, genuine, worthy, and imperfect. Dealing with shame is a gift we give to others and to ourselves.

More About the Author

I like to laugh. I like witty people. I also write quite a bit about qualitative research, resilience, the meanings of violence, and US politics. Once in a while, I write something funny. I'm horse crazy and have two of my own--Padron's Elegante and Finn MacCool, who are mother and son. I have several videos on youtube about them. I've spent quite a bit of time in Europe. Ireland and Belgium have been second homes. I once thought I would live in Oxford, which is a wonderful place.

I'm a professor at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, USA, and enjoy, besides horses, photography, gardening, cooking, the arts, nature, and boating.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shame, read this and begin outgrowing it. 8 May 2014
By mickey ray - Published on

For most healing, I information is the first step to taking constructive action. Shame, the basis of so much, has to be considered when limitation is relentless in any area of our lives. This book is absolutely valuable and can start the journey in being healed and feeling whole.
