This book contains powerful new insights for the therapist on a full-range of topics from intimacy in couples to fathering to politics to child development to gender issues to negative therapeutic reactions. Filled with anecdotes and case examples as well as practical strategies, The Voice of Shame will transform your ideas about the role of shame in relationships - and about the potential of the Gestalt model to clarify and contextualize other approaches. The Voice of Shame offers practical recommendations for working with shame, including: techniques for supporting couples in processing their individual and joint experiences of shame to break down destructive cycles and restore intimate process; perspectives on the effect of shame on women's identity formation, with particular reference to body image issues and eating disorders; methods for managing and healing painful shame issues in men's lives and father-son relations, and implications for a new understanding of development and gender; new analyses of the complex links between therapeutic issues and social/political process; tools for understanding and undoing the destructive shame and guilt that binds the "codependent" child; insight into the shame issues and struggles of living with chronic illness; methods for working with the potentially overwhelming shame experienced by gay, lesbian, and bisexual clients, and implications for all patients; and a creative, theoretical framework and practical guide for dealing with shame induced within the therapeutic relationship itself. The authors show how new perspectives on shame gained in one particular area transfer and generalize to other areas and settings. In so doing, they transformour fundamental understanding of psychotherapy itself. Grounded in the most recent research on the dynamics and experience of shame, this book is a practical guide for all psychotherapists, psychologists, clinicians, and others interested in self, psychotherapy, and relationship.

"Outstanding...Lee and Wheeler have created a rich new landscape for Gestalt therapy by bringing together an impressive array of writers, all of whom weave new insights about shame into Gestalt theory. This book is a must for all psychotherapists."
- Gershen Kaufman, Ph.D., Michigan State Univeristy, author of Shame: The Power of Caring
"Lee and Wheeler have finally given the emotion of shame a full-throated voice in psychotherapy. Empirical evidence has now cumulated supporting the ubiquitous presence of shame as the primary negative emotion in almost all psychopathologies. But until this work, we have not had as clear a picture of how shame presents clinically and how we need to respond to it therapeutically. Rich and detailed case studies abound to illuminate the theoretical insights. Lee and Wheeler have now brought shame fully out of the psychotherapeutic closet."
- David R. Cook, Ed.D., professor emeritus of marriage and family therapy, University of Wisconsin-Stout
"With The Voice of Shame, the Gestalt model takes another big step toward fulfilling its promise as a truly relational approach - one that can locate the person in his or her social context without losing sight of individual dynamics and process. At the same time, the use of the Gestalt lens clarifies the crucial place of shame and related issues in therapeutic process, intimacy, and family dynamics. Clinicians of every school should welcome this valuable new addition to the literature of shame."
- Sonia March Nevis, director of the Center for the Study of Intimate Systems, Gestalt Institute of Cleveland
