8. August 1995
Shame, the quintessential human emotion, received little attention during the years in which the central forces believed to be motivating us were identified as primitive instincts like sex and aggression. Now, redressing the balance, there is an explosion of interest in the self-conscious emotion. Much of our psychic lives involve the negotiation of shame, asserts Michael Lewis, internationally known developmental and clinical psychologist. Shame is normal, not pathological, though opposite reactions to shame underlie many conflicts among individuals and groups, and some styles of handling shame are clearly maladaptive. Illustrating his argument with examples from everyday life, Lewis draws on his own pathbreaking studies and the theory and research of many others to construct the first comprehensive and empirically based account of emotional development focused on shame. In this paperback edition, Michael Lewis adds a compelling new chapter on stigma in which he details the process in which stigmatization produces shame.

Contemporary Psychology I heartily recommend [Shame] to scientists and practitioners alike, for I think with time it will become acknowledged as a pivotal text for how emotion, the self-system, and interpersonal relations are inextricably linked in human development.

Joseph J. Campos, Ph.D. Director of the Institute of Human Development, University of California, Berkeley ...a major contribution to the study of emotional development by one of the most creative figures in contemporary psychology...Dr. Lewis sheds light in an engaging and provocative manner on what shame is, how it develops, and why it is so significant for personality development.

Paul Ekman, Ph.D. Author of Telling Liesand Why Kids Lie Lewis brilliantly illuminates the nature of shame and its impact in our daily life, uniquely combining scholarly research, stories from everyday life, and clinical cases from his own practice. Lucid and insightful, it is must reading for scholars and laymen, researchers in emotion and development, and clinical practitioners.


Tracing the precursors of a sense of self in infancy and early childhood, Lewis explores the many ways in which shame is induced and expressed with the individual as well as the culture. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Emotion is a very complex subject, and shame - in particular - is one of the most difficult emotions to understand. The author makes a serious attempt to meet the challenge by reviewing the literature on shame all the way back to the Book of Genesis, to Darwin, Freud and contemporary 20th century theorists.

Parents typically use facial expressions of disgust and contempt in order to humiliate children and instill shame. Instead of explaining reasons for the parents' disapproval, their emotional reaction -often intense - has the effect of frightening the child into obedience. The child doesn't learn why the action is disapproved of, and in the future tends to attribute global goodness or badness to himself or other individuals, rather than evaluating reasons or specific circumstances.

The book presents an interesting model of shame, its origins (usually in miseducation), and effects (always toxic, as opposed to guilt which may be reparative). "A shame filled environment for any child is comparable to a stress-filled environment." (p. 113)

When children are taught to make global evaluations ("I'm a good person/I'm a bad person") they suffer from excessive pride or paralyzing shame - both of which are destructive to the individual and society. Children should be taught to make specific evaluations ("What I did yesterday was bad/What I'm doing today is good") to encourage constructive and reparative actions.

There is some evidence of differences in how parents and teachers socialize little boys and girls, with the result that girls are more prone to shame (especially regarding personal appearance) than boys (especially sexual performance). The consequence of shame is often depression (usually in women), or rage (usually in men).

The author doesn't consider the widespread problem of female sexual dysfunction, which is plausibly related to early shame training. Imagine, too, a world where girls and women aren't so ashamed of their breasts. The book has many other defects, such as promoting the now-discredited diagnosis of multiple personality disorder. But the basic message of this book is profoundly important: children's emotional education should be more careful than what has traditionally been passed off as good parenting.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Shame, unfortunately, on us all 12. Dezember 2013
Von John D. White - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This was an outstanding expose of a very little developed topic (until recently). It repays careful reading and even more careful thought. Lewis has done us all a favor by covering this theme.
