    Psychological Intervention Outcome Of In-Patients Referred For Insight Oriented Therapy In Federal Neurosychiatric Hospital, Yaba Lagos

    Abstract

    Insight has been found to be an integral component that ensures success in most psychiatry
    treatment. It appears that, the more the client can understand the cause of the illness, the
    greater their chances of resolving their unpleasant experience. Insight-oriented
    psychotherapy is a client-centred therapy, a talk therapy that guides clients toward
    developing and understanding of self. It assumes that the client is healthy and their problem
    is a result of faulty-thinking. This study focused on testing the efficacy of insight oriented
    therapy in improving participants’ level of illness awareness. Forty three (43) inpatients
    from a federal government mental health facility were purposively selected based on
    referrals for individualized insight oriented therapy for a 12-session program. Participants
    responded to Beck Cognitive Insight Scale prior and after intervention (pre-posttest).The
    participants were made up of 23 males and 20 females with an average age of 32.21 9.31
    who entered therapy session upon referrals. The results revealed that insight oriented
    therapy had a significant impact on the level of the study sample’s insight
    [ t(42)= 47.429 p<.01]. Conclusively, insight oriented therapy has been
    found in this study to be efficacious in the management of patient with poor insight. Authors
    suggested that more clinical trials should be carried out to test It’s efficacy in larger samples
    and with control samples.
