Shame in child maltreatment: contributions and caveats.


This special section is a collection of papers that investigates the role of shame in children with abuse histories. Relationships are found between abuse-specific shame or general shame proneness and a variety of outcomes. However, the relationships are not consistent. The utility of these findings will be enhanced by studies that use common measurement approaches and address similar outcomes, as well specific tests of intervention approaches that target shame.
