“Every decade or so in the world of psychiatry and psychology, a book appears that opens up and explores a burgeoning new field and stimulates its further development. THE MANY FACES OF SHAME can claim to perform this essential service, leaving clinicians like myself grateful for the contributions of this pioneer effort. It enlarges theoretical perspectives and also enhances clinical skills in ways that are now curiously neglected. It is my belief that many patients, needful of help, are lost to treatment because the shame factors inherent in this situation have been overlooked.”

—E. James Anthony, MD

“Rich, provocative, and timely, this landmark volume explores the neglected domain of shame. Replete with implications for clinical practice, this book will be indispensable to every practicing clinician...and student of the psyche.”

—Gershen Kaufman, PhD
