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]
