Shelley Stokes a private clinical psychologist; and Sherron Lewis, a licensed marriage and family therapist specializing in individual conflict and personal development, have completed their new book “The Trauma of Shame and the Making of the Self”: a prolific discourse on how to properly deal with shame in keeping a healthy and sound lifestyle.

Authors Stokes and Lewis thoroughly explain the influence of such behavior in setting the bar between accountability and pretention: “Achieving clarity regarding one’s own accuracy in mentalizing may not be all that easy. Because a large part of our reflective functioning occurs mostly outside of conscious awareness or conscious control, we may have little awareness of our abilities to function in this domain. Because of this, we are all likely to be somewhat biased regarding our own capacity for reflective functioning. Typically, we tend to assume that we are better at it than we actually are. Further, persons with significantly limited reflective ability may commonly be unaware that they have mentalizing difficulties at all.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Shelley Stokes and Sherron Lewis’s evoking narrative is an outstanding contribution to the uncommon paperbacks that specifically address the psychodynamic depth psychology perspective.

Readers who wish to experience this scholarly work can purchase “The Trauma of Shame and the Making of the Self” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
