The phenomenon of self-conscious emotions has been introduced to the field of clinical psychology in recent years. Empirical studies which have been conducted along with theoretical developments have supported the significance of these emotions in psychopathology. The nature of these emotions involves awareness of others’ and self-evaluations which are susceptible to social influence. Therefore, cultural insight gains importance, as well. This book contains both theoretical background and empirical studies about self conscious emotions. The ultimate purpose of these studies presented in this book is to uncover the relationships between psychopathological symptoms and self-conscious emotions by examining individual differences in terms of deviation from the common ground while benefiting from nonverbal cues for recognition of these emotions. Findings of the study are explained in a culture-specific point of view.
