Shame is just beginning to receive the clinical attention it deserves. Psychologist and author Sandra Edelman's treatment of it, an outgrowth of her Jungian analytical work, explains in depth its misinterpreted origins. She provides an overview of received shame theory, then grounds the new understanding in a cross-disciplinary field of psychology, philosophy, mythology, classical scholarship, and theology. Soundly argued and amplified but personal in tone and accessible in style, Turning the Gorgon is for both clinicians and for lay persons who are looking for something with more intellectual bite than the works of John Bradshaw.
