Beyond Bullying

Breaking the Cycle of Shame, Bullying, and Violence

Jonathan Fast

  • The first systematic integration of existing shame research into a single overarching explanatory theory of shame, a theory that ties together shame, the need for status, and group membership.
  • The first book to provide a taxonomy of functional and dysfunctional shame management techniques.
  • The first book to apply such a theory to a diverse group of major social issues including bullying, homophobia, domestic violence, racism, school shootings, and domestic terrorism -- critical issues in today's headlines.
  • The first book to demonstrate that school shootings are a form of domestic terrorism.
