if you have patients that struggle with fears of looking foolish or drawing attention to themselves then shame maitake and maybe a great skill to add to your toolkit shame attacking is a form of exposure where we invite patients to purposely do goofy things in public we invite them to draw attention to themselves instead of making constant effort to avoid doing shameful things in doing so patients may learn various new beliefs such as nothing bad happens if I do something goofy or if people judge me I can survive it or sometimes it’s freeing to act without reservation of course successful shame attacking is tailored to the specific viewers of the patient some common examples I’ve tried are things like singing on a street corner riding the bus and announcing the names of each street that is crossed or skipping down a busy street shame attacking is also much better if the therapist abides by the principle to never ask a patient to do something the therapist has not already tried so get out there and start doing your own shame attacking first I won’t be surprised if you feel a sense of freedom and have some fun in the process ..
