Abstract

In recent years psychotherapists have recognized the importance of shame for understanding the therapy process and psychological disturbances. Although many investigators have called for a phenomenological study of shame because of its personal nature, few have proceeded accordingly. This article shows how critical it is that shame be studied phenomenologically, and provides an example of what such a study would look like by examining shame in its relationship to forgiveness.
