Status quo of psychoanalysis and similar insight-oriented techniques is not alike in developed and developing nations, due to a number of cultural or scholastic reasons, along with shortage of required facilities. The outcome of such a state of affairs might be nothing except than nearly complete ignorance of this genuine exploratory technique and substituting it with more superficial psychotherapeutic approaches like cognitive therapy, behavior therapy and etc., which operate just at the conscious and subconscious levels of mind. Furthermore, decline of enactment of psychotherapy by psychiatrists in developed societies possibly will be even more discouraging for therapists in undeveloped ones. In this article, which is devoted mainly to developing, traditional or conservative states, a number of obstacles against training and development of applied (clinical) psychoanalysis and related procedures has been discussed concisely.
