This chapter is the second part of two chapters on shame in German contexts. It explores research which focuses on shame in individuals. The question addressed is the following: Which aspects of shame does research highlight with regard to shame in individuals in German contexts? Individually experienced shame in German cultural and contemporary research is explored and reflected on, to provide readers with an insight into shame research in Germany, which is often published in the German language. Practical applications are added with regard to the selected research areas on individual shame. Conclusions are drawn and recommendations for future research and (therapeutical) practice are given.
