Play • 32 min

Have you ever felt shame? Our guest on this episode, psychotherapist and media commentator Joseph Burgo, says shame is a family of emotions ranging from mild embarrassment to deep humiliation, and most of us experience varying degrees of shame every day. He teaches us how to recognize shame, control it, and use it to our advantage. He's the author of a new book called 'Shame: Free Yourself, Find Joy, and Build True Self-Esteem' and is a regular blogger for Psychology Today.
