In this letter to Anna Freud, Winnicott writes of the importance of the British contribution to the mental health conference they are both attending and stresses their contribution to the study of aggression, guilt, depression, and reparation and their interrelation. To enable human beings to tolerate and accept their own aggression, respect for guilt and depression is needed, plus full recognition of reparative tendencies.
