New Book: Shame, Pride and Relational Trauma
ISSTD Member, Ken Benau, has recently published a book Shame, Pride, and Relational Trauma: Concepts and Psychotherapy. This book is a comprehensive overview of the role these complex emotions play in the lives of survivors’relational trauma, as well as within therapy itself. This book aims to assist readers to differentiate shame and pride as emotional processes and traumatic mind/body states, as well as deepen their understanding of the psychodynamic and phenomenological relationships between shame, pride, and dissociation. Shame, Pride and Relational Trauma will also assist therapists with practical ways to navigate shame in therapy. Finally, the book explores the notion of ‘pro-being pride’ and how this ability to delight in one’s own and others’ unique aliveness can help therapy clients transcend shame.
Janina Fisher, PhD, in writing about Ken’s book says,
“This book is the most comprehensive guide to thinking about shame and its treatment written so far! Shame and pride are discussed in all their different guises and presentations, along with somatic, relational, and visualization approaches to treatment. Densely written and theoretical, yet offering practical applications as well.”
Shame, Pride, and Relational Trauma is published by Routledge and is available for purchase here:
