The centrality of guilt: working with ultra-orthodox jewish patients in israel(*).

The centrality of guilt: working with ultra-orthodox jewish patients in israel(*). Am J Psychoanal. 2014 Sep;74(3):262-79 Authors: Hess E Abstract The ultra-orthodox Jewish (Haredi) community in Israel is characterized by strict observance of the requirements of orthodox Jewish life. Psychoanalytic psychotherapy within this community brings us into contact with guilt as a central emotion throughout the therapeutic process. The exposure to new concepts, ways of thought and a previously unknown space, together with increased awareness of internal wishes and drives, are experienced as forbidden areas that arouse an awakening of conscience and a sense of guilt. The author's cases illustrate these conflicts. PMID: 25117784 [PubMed - in process]

ConclusionsFurther research is required to refine currently existing measures and develop new measures for key NICE ‐recommended models of therapy.Practitioner points Assessment and improvement of therapist competence is key to provision of high ‐quality psychotherapeutic interventions. This review shows there are few measures of competence in relational therapy models and several NICE‐recommended models do not have corresponding competence measures. Measures that do exist are mixed in terms of their validity and reliability and shoul d therefore be used with caution.
