Abstract of presentation: While we are all subject to experiencing anxiety, guilt, and shame as temporary reactions to our own transgressive behavior, many suffer from debilitating expressions of these emotions which seem disproportionate to the precipitating event. By clarifying the existential roots of these emotions, the intensity and frequency of their expression may be modified. Vulnerability factors for anxiety, guilt, and shame will be presented within the context of a comprehensive model of emotional experience with special attention paid to the potential for clinical intervention.
