Recognising And Identifying ProblemsThe aim of this step is to teach the client how to recognise when a problem exists so they can correctly identify it and begin to solve it. This may sound obvious but is not always straightforward to achieve. When someone is used to either avoiding problems or responding impulsively, their ability to first recognise a problem exists and then correctly identify what that problem is may be under developed.
There are three parts to this step:
- inviting a client to spontaneously report current problems Problem list
- learning how to track problem indicators Recognising & identifying problems worksheet
- using a checklist Problem checklist
The outcome is twofold. In therapy, it results in generating a list of problem areas with the client which will form the basis of your work together. More importantly, it provides the client with the skills necessary for the ongoing real life task of problem recognition and identification.
