EXAMINING THE EXPERIENCE OF SHAME AND GUILT AT AVOIDANT PERSONALITY DISORDER IN YOUNG ADULTS

 21 Apr 2022 - 18:30

There are a significant number of people who suffer from the personality disorder called Social Avoidance. There is probably no more difficult and painful emotion than shame. Shame involves complete self-condemnation. It is a major attack against the self. By contrast, guilt involves self-criticism for a mistaken act or behavior. At the very same time, the nature of the Socially Avoidant Person is such that any criticism, even the slightest, is experienced as acutely painful. In fact, being blamed causes the avoidant person to feel humiliated and, therefore, shamed.
