Containment and catharsis are both relevant parts of a healing process. Abuses of the catharsis phase have created an understandable avoidance of ungrounded or overwhelming use of emotional expression. Over-reliance on containment can also cause a stuck or incomplete process. Shifting a focus to appropriate expression and action can help people tend to unmet needs and complete unfinished processes, establish self regulation, and healthy contact.
