Description

Shame can be difficult to evaluate because it’s a feeling that people tend to hide. In addition, the self-report instruments typically used to measure shame limit client responses to a given set of options. For these reasons, assessments of shame are often inaccurate or incomplete.

The new Thurston Cradock Test of Shame (TCTS) offers an alternative approach that’s less confining, more subtle, and more informative than self-report measures. The TCTS solicits open-ended responses to ambiguous stimuli. Because it does not restrict client responses, the TCTS can access internalized conflicts, needs, and fantasies, uncovering rich clinical data.
