Department/School

Abstract

Socialization processes leave many men prone to experience pervasive feelings of shame when confronted by challenging life events. These feelings may be associated with a depressed mood, requiring the help of a counselor. The authors review the literature on shame, its relationship to depression, and the socialization experiences that leave men vulnerable to shame. They then propose a framework and strategies for reducing shame in depressed men, illustrated with 3 case studies.
