dc.description.abstract The word shame has many and varied nuances in meaning. A detailed analysis of the meaning and process of shame and its relationship to addiction is examined. Discussion involves the characteristics of shame, the dynamics of shame as affect, the diverse physiological impact and the emotional and behavioral expression of shame, shame's dynamics expressed by people, its relationship to addiction, and, finally, how shame may be confronted and healed. Characteristics and dynamics are illustrated with personal situations and published literature. Shame expressed as proof of one's being is an essential ingredient in how shame is intricately interwoven in the addictive process. en_US
