GOOD-BYE TO SHAME AND GUILT
Time & Location
About the Event
People who experience shame do not openly deal with it; in other words, people who suffer from shame prefer not to deal with it. We have support groups for everything, bulimia, anorexia, alcoholism, drug abuse, domestic abuse, people who are coping with phobias. Still, we do not have support groups for those dealing with shame. People who are experiencing deep shame do not want to talk about it. They do not form groups about it. All of us most probably experience shame to some degree, maybe not a deep, not toxic shame, but you are familiar with it.
Shame is a significant topic. Very few people talk about it, Sigmund Froyd had practically nothing to say about it, and he
influences deeply human psychology a great deal. He spoke about guilt, but guilt and shame are different. In fact, until
recently, it was considered that shame is the symptom, a result of psychological problems, and now today, we believe that shame is the base of many psychological issues. Not just a sign but a result of them, and there is an essential difference between these two realities.
The word shame comes from a Latin root "scam," which means to cover oneself. When you feel ashamed, what do you want to do? You want to hide; you want to cover yourself. You want to get small. It is interesting when you feel shame you try to get smaller and smaller and the person who is the cause of that shame, the person who is shaming you they seem to get bigger
and bigger and louder and louder and more dangerous. So, the word describes very well what we feel when we are ashamed.
We also label shame as (1) an embarrassment, everybody gets embarrassed,(2) and humiliation, you feel humiliated, that is to feel shame, disgraced, dishonored, self-conscious in a negative sense.
This talk is the first one ever offered on the topic of shame. Mel BRooks discusses the psychological realities of shame from profound undesranding of it s moral code and implications to the health of the human psyche.
