This is the current evolution of my problem-solving method. It is a hybrid of Design Thinking and Integrative Psychotherapy, combining the creative breadth of the former with the psychological depth of the latter.
It is creative, human-centred, strengths-based, and action-oriented.
It enables me and my clients to work on both the functional and psychological aspects of their problems.
It integrates a diverse set of techniques from Psychotherapy, Design, and Business that are tailored to each client.
The iterative steps enable:
- Insights into the context of your problem; the situational, the interpersonal, and the intrapersonal.
- Discovery of strengths, resources, and innate creativity.
- Reframing constraints into opportunities.
- Creative generation of novel, actionable, and practical ideas.
- Testing and evaluation of new options and new behaviours.
- Sketching out high-level plans to implement changes.
I have been evolving this problem-solving method over decades. My current PhD research will add even greater theoretical to it.
