"Sinking into the Ground": The Development and Consequences of Shame in Adolescence.
Reimer, Michele S.
Developmental Review, v16 n4 p321-63 Dec 1996
Reviews the literature on shame and on adolescence and suggests that attention to the role of shame in adolescent development is warranted. Discusses how social-cognitive, physical, and interpersonal changes associated with adolescence may be associated with normative increases in shame, and how shame may be implicated in gender-related shifts in self-esteem and developmental psychopathology.
