The oedipus complex: A reminder of its clinical import
Although the oedipus complex is a critical developmental phase, its importance has become increasingly undrstated as our attention has shifted to earlier development. This paper explores what occurs in the oedipal phase, in both healthy and pathological environments, and attempts to show how oedipal conflicts may affect later development. A case example is used to highlight some aspects of the history and the dynamics of a young man who attempts to come to terms with problems related to oedipal struggles. © 1985 Human Sciences Press.
