Abstract

There is a growing trend in psychiatry that claims that all goal‐orientated therapy is predictive of healthy outcomes. However, there is evidence that an excessive focus on materialistic goals may be related to problems with ‘mood’. The exact way in which goals are internalised and affect our unconscious motivations is here explored in a clinical context.
