BUSCH, Fred. The analyst working: models and theory of technique in present time. Rev. bras. psicanál [online]. 2007, vol.41, n.3, pp. 155-160. ISSN 0486-641X.

The goal of insightfulness, rather than insight, is presented as central to a new way of thinking about psychoanalytic technique. It is based upon the author’s observation that what changes in psycho­analysis is not what patients think about, but rather how they think about what they think about. Several metaphors are presented that capture this new way of working.

Keywords : Insight; Insightfulness; Psychoanalytic technique; Self-observation; Preconscious thinking.
