Description
Summary:Complex guilt is the most insidious force within the unconscious. It both fuels and exacerbates psychopathology. This article explores complex guilt. The lens of examination will be the guilt-ridden character Pip, in Charles Dickens, Great Expectations. The pathway of redemption and healing found in Dickens, parallels the intentional work of Habib Davanloo, the father of Intensive Short Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP). In addition to drawing from Dickens and Davanloo, the paper employs a clinical case vignette as a way of elucidating the theory and underscoring the importance of directly accessing the complex guilt in the course of treatment.
