ABSTRACT

The client was a 26 years old male who had a past orientation. He felt guilty because he had been experiencing unfinished business with his father. The assessment was employed interview, observation, psychology test (graphic, SSCT, and TAT), and Guilt Sensitivity Scale in order to reveal the problems. The assessment’s result showed that the client had unfinished business problems which were preventing his creativity to prosper during his life in the Correctional Institute. Moreover, it made him frequently sad, guilty, and less involved in communicating with his friends.

The development of this intervention can be seen in the result of The Guilt Sensitivity Scale (GGS) that declines.
