Given the extent of inequality in the world, it is surprising that protests are rare. It seems that even those who are not happy with the sociopolitical institutions and arrangements on which they depend do not participate in protests. Why do individuals who are dissatisfied with the system do not engage in efforts to create social change?

A new model of insight and a systematic review of measures

A new model of insight and a systematic review of measures

There is substantial research examining insight in psychotic disorders and in some nonpsychotic disorders. However, there has been little attention given to many nonpsychotic disorders. Research on insight in psychosis distinguishes between cognitive and clinical insight. In most studies examining insight in nonpsychotic disorders, definitions and assessments of insight vary significantly. The purpose of this review is to suggest a definition of insight in nonpsychotic disorders such that it can be used across different disorders.

In a new research PhD candidate Asala Halaj and prof. Jonathan Huppert systematically review the extant literature of insight in nonpsychotic disorders and analyze the assessments used in order to determine how well they capture these two types of insight. Then, they discuss how these two constructs can provide better understanding of the phenomenology of insight in nonpsychotic disorders.

Asala and Jonathan provide a multidimensional model of cognitive and clinical insight in nonpsychotic disorders, emphasizing the complexity of assessment and the importance of accurately defining insight. Such definitions have important theoretical and clinical implications, offering a better understanding of the concept of insight in nonpsychotic disorders.
