    Integrated shame : a different experience of the self by Cajina-Grigsby, Jennifer

    This capstone paper introduces the concept and theory of Integrated Shame. It first provides a review of the development of shame in psychoanalysis: how it emerged, why it was ignored as such, and how it was reintroduced into this field. It then presents and explores major theories that have defined the origin and components of the effect of shame. I use my own case illustration to further clarify the issue at hand and I terminate with presenting contemporary psychoanalytic theories that provide insight to both the experience of Integrated Shame as well as possible treatment solutions. I conclude by saying that Integrated Shame would be best treated using Summer’s phenomenological approach primarily due to the extensive influence of Kohutian Self Psychology.
