    5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal Shame Resource

    This is the workbook I have always wanted and never been able to find! I love how it relates shame to the body and polyvagal theory. It is full of great information, helpful diagrams, and amazing client handouts! I have bought a lot of books and workbooks this year and this one is by far my #1!! Thank you Dr. Ashley for this amazing resource for clinicians!!

    5.0 out of 5 stars A helpful Book

    In Shame-Informed Therapy, Patti Ashley writes about the importance of allowing all feelings to be fully acknowledged and expressed. As someone who helps people with grief, I see tremendous value in her perspectives. Her workbook gives the reader a clear roadmap to how our feelings influence our behavior and our relationships. Her worksheets, exercises, and mindfulness meditations are helpful tools that give you permission to feel all of your feelings and find healthy outlets for expression. I recommend it to anyone who is helping people discover their authentic self while going through grief, trauma, or any other life challenges.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for personal and professional growth !

    As a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist I found Dr. Ashley’s newest book, Shame-Informed Therapy, to be very informative and practical. In the text sections Dr. Ashley seamlessly weaves together the bio/psycho/social origins and impacts of core shame. The workbook sections are quite instructive and are personally and professionally relevant in exploring this important topic.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great synthesis of current therapeutic models

    Dr Ashley has pulled together many therapeutic models into a coherent toolbox for therapists to use with clients who may be particularly difficult to work with. Her focus is on clients carrying the wound of being shamed, but her worksheets seem valuable for anyone wanting to uncover his or her authentic self. Easy to read and well organized, she also explains the biology behind the rigid patterning developed by clients suffering from shame, and advises therapists to watch for their own trigger responses.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great tool(s) for overcoming shame

    Dr. Patti Ashley strikes again…this time tackling one of the most important (if not THE most important) topics to shine light upon. In her breakthrough book, she’s created a turn-key approach for therapists to working with clients and friends with her worksheets, stories, and depth of insight.

    5.0 out of 5 stars This book is for Therapists

    I bought this to work on by myself but I realized when talking to my therapist that it is for the therapist to use to work with their clients. But I’m still glad I bought it and I plan on working on it with her 🙂

    5.0 out of 5 stars Well written, informative and chock full of useful handouts

    Excellent read! As a therapist who has long been interested in this topic, I found this book to be both informative and practical. Dr. Ashley has presented some very complex theory (e.g., Polyvagal Theory) in a manner which is easy to understand, and therefore useful for the professional and lay person alike. Interwoven throughout the book are easy to use forms to help the reader self-explore, and develop greater self-compassion and self-esteem. I believe that “shame” is a primary emotion, and that this book is therefore relevant for all of us.
