Insight and Symptom Reduction in Time-Limited Psychoanalytic Counseling.
Kivlighan, Dennis M. Jr.; Multon, Karen D.; Patton, Michael J.
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v47 n1 p50-58 Jan 2000
Psychoanalytic theory predicts that changes in insight should lead to changes in symptoms. Regression analyses showed that clients had significant linear increases in insight and significant linear decreases in target complaint distress across 20 counseling sessions. Time series analyses showed that increases in insight led reductions in target complaints. Results support the importance of insight for symptom reduction. (Author/JDM)
