Steps In Developing a Therapeutic Story: (Part 2) Defining the Problem.

e21. Defining the Problem.

The first thing to recognise when defining the problem you wish to solve with the story is that what you perceive the problem to be, may not be the problem you need to address. Let me explain what I mean by example.

Jimmy has begun to tell lies. At first it was only now and then but recently he is doing it more and more. Now other people are beginning to pick up that he is lying.

Here you would feel that the problem is his lying and the solution is that he stops lying. Simple. However, when you contemplate why he is lying you may find reasons that first need to be addressed before the actual lying can be addressed.
