Bringing you the best of mental health every week.

Almost everything I know about shame and guilt, I have learned from making mistakes. Lots and lots of mistakes. Everything else, I learned from my clients. But the way I’ve made any sense of it all has been from the work of June Tangney, professor of psychology at George Mason University; the queen of shame and guilt.
