Ronson had some interesting things to say during his "City Arts and Lectures" interview on stage, some of which may be in his book (I need to get it)--basically, empathy and forgiveness shown towards the shamed person helps them recover and grow.
Too often we seem to act like we want to permanently ostracize people who do various social transgressions or even crimes. While I believe some people may be incorrigible, that's not an excuse for treating everyone as incorrigible. (I know this is easily tied into death penalty banning.) It's not just the shamed person who can grow through this process either.
(Unfortunately, CA&L airings are not archived online, due to a quirk of the sponsor, but if you do get to hear this, it's much more relaxed and informative than his bits on This American Life (which are also fun). They also talked about Men Who Stare at Goats...he did like the movie, and had some appreciation for the adaptation the movie makers made.)
