Description - Shame and the Origins of Self-esteem by Mario Jacoby

Shame is one of our most central feelings and a universal human characteristic. Why do we experience it? For what purpose? How can one cope with excessive feelings of shame? Informed by many years of helping people to understand feelings of shame, Jungian analyst Mario Jacoby provides an exploration of the many aspects of shame and shows how it occupies a central place in our emotional experience. Jacoby shows a lack of self-esteem to be at the root of excessive shame. As well as providing practical examples of how therapy can help, Jacoby draws upon historical and cultural scholarship to discuss how important shame is for us in both its individual and social aspects.
