In this time of coronavirus concern, you may be feeling stuck and useless. This book helps us recognize shame for what it is, and affirm our basic humanity, humility, autonomy, and competence.

As we identify shame and use recovery skills to work through it, Letting Go of Shame: Understanding How Shame Affects Your Life helps to explain the emotion of shame and its impact on our self-image and relationships. The authors offer us a way that we can personalize a plan of action to help build our self-esteem, and they suggest exercises to help us identify our feelings of shame.
