Reviews for Shame: The Power of Caring, by Gershen Kaufman

"We are indebted to Gershen Kaufman for his special sensitivity to the role of shame and its contribution to affect theory, requiring as it did conjointly, affect sensitivity, personal integrity, cognitive depth, and not least, personal courage in exposing his own self to the professional community."

-Silvan S. Tomkins


"Gershen Kaufman's Shame has been of immense value to me, and opened for me the whole area of shame. I recommend it very highly."

-Robert Bly


"Shame was the first book to offer a sensible treatment strategy for people whose lives were suffused with shame. Until Gershen Kaufman suggested it was both necessary and proper to offer warmth and kindness as antidotes for shame, otherwise well trained therapists remained 'neutral' and aloof to this form of pain and suffering. There is no better way to begin your study of shame than to read this book."

-Donald L. Nathanson, M.D.
