Shame in Youth Ministry: A Typology to Inform Praxis

Sally Nash

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This article offers an overview of a typology of shame in relation to youth ministry. The typology was developed by drawing on practical theology and qualitative research methods and was completed for the author’s ordination training as an Anglican priest. The data presented in the article is taken from a separate analysis of responses from youth ministers and youth workers. The six domains of the typology are personal, relational, communal, structural, theological and historical. Implications of the typology for youth ministry praxis are discussed.
