Insight-Oriented Psychotherapy is a client-centered therapy. It assumes that a client’s issues may be the result of the client’s past life experiences. The therapist helps the client identify patterns in situations in which the client feels stress or anxiety. Insight-Oriented Psychotherapy is a form of treatment that helps people through understanding and expressing feelings, motivations, beliefs, fears, and desires. The understanding develops in the context of a therapeutic relationship.
Sigmund Freud is credited as the founder of psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic theory, if not modern psychology. There has been a multitude of variations that have evolved, and the term most often used to broadly encompass these approaches is "psychodynamic." Freud's original theories were based on the conflicts that he believed were at the core of human existence. These conflicts emerge from attempts to reconcile our biological selves with our social selves. Aspects of these conflicts are unconscious and influence our behavior without our awareness. Psychodynamic therapies work to make the unconscious conscious so that we can have greater insight into our needs and behavior and therefore more control over how we allow these conflicts to affect us.
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a practical approach that seeks to define concrete goals and uses active techniques to reach them. The cognitive-behavioral therapist looks at patterns of thinking and behavior and how these patterns are reinforced and maintained by the person within his or her environment. Functional analysis of thinking and behavior is performed, often using log sheets and graphs to better understand thought and behavior patterns in the context of daily routines. Once an understanding of symptoms and behavior is achieved, the therapist and client together devise changes in the patterns and continue tracking. This process is repeated until the original goals are met. Attention to irrational thinking patterns (e.g., automatic thoughts, catastrophic thinking) is central to the approach as well.
Some of the techniques and programs that are usually associated with CBT are relaxation training, systematic desensitization, assertiveness training, and social skills training.
