"If You Are Dealing With Narcissism In Your Life, Do You Understand How Shame Is Being Used To Control You?"

About This Book...

This book sets out to show how toxic shame functions to enhance and preserve one's sense of self, both for the narcissist and their victims.  Toxic shame differs hugely from ordinary shame.


  Ordinary healthy shame is more akin to guilt; therefore, it can move us towards better behaviour and a more positive way of thinking.  Whereas, toxic shame has such a strong effect on an individual that it can lead to a paralysing assessment of oneself as a “flawed” person.  


The intention of this book is to provide a better understanding for both victims and clinicians of what is involved when one is a victim of pathological narcissistic abuse, especially in childhood. 

It is estimated that 12% of the population have a serious narcissistic personality disorder, that amounts to approximately 1 in every 8 people.  Narcissists are everywhere, we cannot avoid meeting them in our everyday life.  Unfortunately, narcissistic abuse is not just painful, corrosive and elusive, but it results in mortifying chronic shame for every victim.  


This cutting-edge book, WHEN SHAME BEGETS SHAME: How narcissists hurt and shame their victims, is a highly readable book for everybody, both victims and clinicians alike.  It demonstrates how the narcissist’s toxic spiraling shame can be easily triggered, and how their shame gets projected onto their victims, resulting in highly negative consequences for the victim.  


The information in these pages is grounded in Christine’s 28 years of clinical experience, and on her own lived experience as a survivor of pathological narcissistic abuse throughout her childhood, and again later in adulthood. 


This book gives serious attention to understanding both narcissistic abuse and shame related issues. It is an in depth study of how shame occurs, develops, and takes hold of a person’s life mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually.  Christine also reveals the wonderful defence mechanisms, the disowning of self, the addictions, and the behaviours that both victims and narcissists construct to deal with their chronic shame.  The cost of bypassing shame has unforeseen consequences for the individual, therefore it needs to be addressed.  This book starts that process.

“WHEN SHAME BEGETS SHAME is not merely a synthesis of the subject matter, but it reveals original thoughts and crucial information for both survivors of narcissistic abuse, and clinicians in a highly readable way."

"It has the potential to help victims of abuse understand how shame works in their lives..."

"I found Christine’s book “WHEN SHAME BEGETS SHAME” to be a literate, and extensively researched book on the phenomena of shame, especially in relation to narcissistic abuse. It has the potential to help victims of abuse understand how shame works in their lives, and how to heal from its crushing effects. What I found exciting about this book, was that, rather than making me feel SHAME about my shame, it made me feel empowered to accept it and grow from it.."

- Michelle , Survivor of  Narcissistic Abuse

"I would recommend this book to all therapists"

"I would recommend this book to all therapists so that they are aware of what might be present in a client’s narrative. It is with this knowledge and awareness that one can understand what the client might have experienced in order that we, as professionals, may listen with a possible alternative hypothesis of the client’s experience. I commend Christine in her work and I thank her for enlightening me"
