Insight-oriented psychotherapy

Summary
Insight-oriented psychotherapy is a category of psychotherapies that rely on conversation between the therapist and the client (or patient). It involves developing the patient's understanding of past and present experiences, how they are related to each other and the effect they have on the patient's interpersonal relationships, emotions and symptoms. Insight-oriented psychotherapy can be an intensive process, wherein the client must spend multiple days per week with the therapist. Overview Forms of insight-oriented psychotherapy include psychoanalysis and Gestalt therapy. Insight oriented psychotherapy places a large emphasis on personal discovery for the patient. Through dedication to trust filled conversations, the patient will go through a process of enlightenment with the therapist. The patient will begin to understand significant life events of theirs as triggers or agents of change for how they live their lives tod
