Insight Oriented Therapy

An individual treatment mode for mental illness that can be used easily along with a variety of other approaches (biologial, family, group, etc.). This involves attempting to understand the patient as a person, who has various private feelings and experiences, wishes or motivations, fears, etc. which may be in conflict, or problematic. Sessions last 45 minutes, and are once or twice per week (the exception being psychoanalysis, see below) The key idea is that our emotional development is a result of experiential and genetic (or inbuilt) factors. It is possible for us to reduce our mental suffering by learning as much as possible about what creates mental problems in ourselves. Insight-oriented psychotherapists take the time to work individually with patients often for longer time periods, and have training in psychiatry, psychology, or social work. The most intensive kind of such therapy is psychoanalysis.
