Shame & Guilt: Masters of Disguise | [Jane Middleton-Moz]

Shame & Guilt: Masters of Disguise

"It is my feeling that debilitating shame and guilt are at the root of all dysfunctions in families," says Jane Middelton-Moz. A few common characteristics of adults shamed in childhood: You may suffer extreme shyness, embarrassment and feelings of being inferior to others. You don't believe you make mistakes, you believe you are a mistake. You feel controlled from the outside and from within. You feel that normal spontaneous expression is blocked. You may suffer from debilitating guilt; you apologize constantly.

Publisher's Summary

"It is my feeling that debilitating shame and guilt are at the root of all dysfunctions in families," says Jane Middelton-Moz.

A few common characteristics of adults shamed in childhood:

  • You may suffer extreme shyness, embarrassment and feelings of being inferior to others.
  • You don't believe you make mistakes, you believe you are a mistake.
  • You feel controlled from the outside and from within.
  • You feel that normal spontaneous expression is blocked.
  • You may suffer from debilitating guilt; you apologize constantly.
  • You have little sense of emotional boundaries; you feel constantly violated by others; you frequently build false boundaries.

If you see yourself in any of these characteristics, you can learn how shame keeps you from being the person you were born to be and how to change that. Shame & Guilt describes how debilitating shame is created and fostered in childhood and how it manifests itself in adulthood and in intimate relationships. Through the use of myths and fairytales to portray different shaming environments, Dr. Middelton-Moz allows you to reach the shamed child within you and to add clarity to what could be difficult concepts.

Listen to Shame & Guilt - you're worth it.

    "Great Use of Story to Explain Psychology"

    Easy to listen to. I love how stories are used to explain psychological principles - similar to Clarissa Pinkola Estes books. The book explains shame and guilt better than it prescribes solutions but is still well worth a read/listen.

    Story
    "Story:good diagnosis with very poor solution hints"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Probably not


    If you’ve listened to books by Jane Middleton-Moz before, how does this one compare?

    I've listened to "After tears" and this book is like 30-35% value of the first one to me. The other book treats the ACOA issue in a much more organized and clear way (in my view). This book "Shame and guilt" evidently shows the high importance of shame and guilt in our lives and yet I have a sense as if this book treats the issue similarly to "a doctor making incisions to a patient on an operation table and then walking away leaving the patient with an open stomach". Good diagnosis, poor solution hints, or unclear hints. Lecture of this book leaves me with a sense of strong frustration that a problem is pointed out and no solution hints given.


    What three words best describe Cat Gould’s performance?

    Very good narrator.


    Did Shame & Guilt inspire you to do anything?

    Very frustrated as far as finding ways to solve shame and guilt problems.

    This book has a lot to offer to those who wants to work with themselves. I really liked it and I can still go back and listen to it again.
