Yagerian Therapy utilizes mental abilities of the patient that all people have, but are not usually recognized. The therapist guides the patient to use the abilities for the purpose of problem solving or achieving higher levels of functioning. Desired change is accomplished by the therapist guiding the patient through a series of logical steps using their own extra-conscious domain to identify the actual cause of the problem being addressed, thereby making resolution possible. In using Yagerian Therapy, the actual causes of the problems are identified and resolved, thereby eliminating the symptoms of the problems.
