Gestalt and Shame

Being introduced to the meaning of shame by John Bradshaw
was a revelatory moment in my psychological understanding.

I went on to read some of the classic books on shame, including Facing Shame: Families in Recovery and Shame: The Power of Caring.

However, the concept had been pretty much ignored in my Gestalt training, and I had not come across any theory that looked at shame theory through a gestalt lens.

Until now.

I discovered a wonderful article by Gordon Wheeler, PhD.

Dr. Wheeler is a gestalt therapist with over 30 years in the field. He is the president of the Esalen Institute. He is also editor of the Gestalt Press. This article appeared in a 1997 issue of Gestalt Review. I recommend this article highly.

Dr. Glenn Berger is a psychotherapist, relationship counselor, business and artist’s coach, and young person’s mentor. He sees patients in New York City, in Mt. Kisco, NY, and around the world by Skype.
