Psychology of Shame : Theory and Treatment of Shame-Based Syndromes. Gershen Kaufman, PhD, was educated at Columbia University and received his P.

In this classic volume, Kaufman synthesizes object relations theory, interpersonal theory, and, in particular, Silvan Tompkins's affect theory, to provide a powerful and multidimensional view of shame. Using his own clinical experience, he illustrates the application of affect theory to general classes of shame-based syndromes including compulsive; schizoid, depressive, and paranoid; sexual dysfunction; splitting; and sociopathic. This second edition includes two new chapters in which Dr. Kaufman presents shame as a societal dynamic and shows its impact on culture. He examines the role of shame in shaping the evolving identity of racial, ethnic, and religious minorities, and expands his theory of governing scenes. This new edition will continue to be of keen interest to clinical psychiatrists as well as graduate students.

Comments to eBook The Psychology of Shame: Theory and Treatment of Shame-Based Syndromes, Second Edition

Kaufman’s forte is not in academics, but as a psychological practitioner. Affect Theory and Script Theory, which serve as Kaufman’s foundation, are fringe concepts, lacking empirical evidence and integration into mainstream theories. Affect Theory is limited to automated (innate, hard-wired) biological responses to environmental stimuli, so it cannot explain more complex emotions associated with self-regulation, social values or cultural differences. However, one can replace and re-frame Script Theory in the light of Bandura’s Social Learning Theory since socio-cultural scripts are handed down, learned and internalized via social practice. For empirical psychologists and those who look for a differentiation between shame and guilt I recommend ‘Shame and Guilt’ by June Tangney and Ronda Dearing instead.
This leads us to the bright side of Kaufman’s book. His descriptions of the internalization of shame are highly insightful as much as his explanations of psycho-therapeutic interventions are useful to practitioners who will find this book to be a true inspiration. Numerous case studies illustrate more than sufficiently the topics at hand. I was wondering at times if the author does not over-generalize the phenomenon of shame. For example, many common psychological problems, such as depression, are not merely rooted in shame conditioning. Giving Kaufman the benefit of the doubt, he does bring his points across powerfully. This is definitely an eye-opening book for practitioners, but to a lesser extent for academics.

I paid to rent this book for two months and ended up buying the print version. Great book on shame.

This is my new Bible for the study of Shame. A broad review of the entire subject but uniquely allows the reader to dig deeper into the material so as to reach a much greater understanding of this complex and often misunderstood subject(s).
I have read many text books and books on shame and Gershen has been able to open my mind even further on the subject. He is one of the new bread of Pychology authors which allows the informed student to move freely within the material without experiencing ambiguous ideas or statement within the material. This book can set the stag for our ultimate understanding of a subject that influences our lives more than any other.

"Two widespread images of shaming in Western culture involve repeatedly pointing and shaking the index finger... Even young children will quickly learn the respective gesture from parents and then repeat it openly for one another. Along with this action come verbal accompaniments such as 'You should be ashamed of yourself' or 'Shame on you.'"

"Blaming is an accusation, an action that recruits the affect of anger but directs it in an accusatory manner. ... Blame... activates intolerable shame, shredding dignity and self-respect... In the midst of blame there is no way to keep one's head held high. Permutations of that scene are infinite and equally epidemic in this society. The blaming parent speaks with the voice of the culture itself."

"Contempt by one will activate shame in the other, which is then returned in retaliation. Contempt breeds contempt. Parental expressions of contempt... profoundly shape the family culture into a breeding ground for shame."

I am stunned. Three reviews of one of the most significant =sociology= and social psychology books ever written... and none of them "get it?" (I know: Anything published in the last century is passe in this one. Including Eric Hoffer's The True Believer; Jules Henry's Culture Against Man and Pathways to Madness; S. E. Asch's Effects of Group Pressure upon the Modification and Distortion of Judgment; Berger & Luckman's The Social Construction of Reality; Trigant Burrow's The Social Basis of Consciousness; Charles Cooley's Human Nature and the Social Order; Stuart Ewen's Captains of Consciousness; Sigmund Freud's Civilization and It's Discontents; Aldous Huxley's Science, Liberty and Peace; Maurice Stein et al's Identity and Anxiety: Survival of the Person in Mass Society; Jiddu Krishnamurti's Education and the Significance of Life; Stanley Milgram's Obedience to Authority; Milton Rokeach's The Open and Closed Mind; Jean-Jacques Rousseau's Emile, or On Education; Margaret Thaler Singer, et al's Report of the APA Task Force on Deceptive and Indirect Techniques of Persuasion and Control; Kathleen Taylor's Brainwashing: The Science of Thought Control; Wilfred Trotter's Instincts of the Herd in Peace and War; Max Weber's The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism; Charles Tart's Waking Up; Susan Forward's Emotional Blackmail; and Gary Woodward & Robert Denton's Persuasion & Influence in American Life. Read any three of these, and the relevance of Kaufman's masterpiece is self-evident.

TPOS is nothing less than a revelation of the "what is" of a culture of success, pride, achievement and domination built on the manipulation of basic human needs plus conditioned values. Produce. Consume. Defend the wealth accumulated therefrom.

Kaufman had no political axes to grind. He was -- and still is, so far as I know -- a professor of clinical psychology in East Lansing, Michigan. His evident objective was to clarify a common, cultural taboo with explanations built on Sylvan Tompkins's work... as well as to design a course of psychotherapeutic action to transcend that taboo and its crippling effects. In so doing, however, he wrote little less than a de-construction of Western authoritarianism built on the 3,000-year-old Abrahamic moral rules and regulations that organized (and still organize) our culture to this moment. That his 30-year-old book continues to command such a steep price is testimony to its place among the works listed in the paragraph above. Those familiar with =that= work will =not= be disappointed in =this=.
