M.’s case, conducted by integrating several therapeutic approaches, offers the starting point for a clinical reinterpretation that makes use of a unitary theory of reference. In the multi-motivational cognitivist perspective, shame can be considered as the main pathoplastic element from which both the self-consolatory behaviors of M. and the destructive aggression that results in revenge porn originate.

Keywords: shame; interpersonal motivation systems; evolutionary theory of motivation; agonism; revenge porn.
