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.
419cfbifqnl-_sx348_bo1204203200_Together with Rhonda Dearing, Tangey wrote two books on the topic, Shame and the Therapy Hour, and Shame and Guilt. She also has a very engaging lecture posted on YouTube, Shame and Guilt: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.

I'm a licensed mental health counselor and certified alcohol and substance abuse counselor in private practice with more than 30 years experience. My newest book is The Road to Reconciliation: A Comprehensive Guide to Peace When Relationships Go Bad. I recently published a workbook connected to it titled, How to Make an Apology You’ll Never Have to Make Again. I also have another self help book, Constructive Conflict: Building Something Good Out of All Those Arguments. I’ve also published two novels, a satire of the mental health field: Fate’s Janitors: Mopping Up Madness at a Mental Health Clinic, and Intersections , which takes readers on a road trip with a suicidal therapist. If you prefer your reading in easily digestible bits, with or without with pictures, I have created a Twitter account @theshrinkslinks. MyFacebook page is called Keith R Wilson – Author.
