Healing With Language: Changing perspectives — reframing
ICIM    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Without being aware, people often focus on the worst possible outcome. A psychological term for this perspective is awfulizing. When that is happening, what they most need is a change in perspective. You can help your patients change unhelpful perspectives in two ways: (1) Change the content of what they say, or (2) change the context (time and/or place) of their statement.

Statement: I'm always in pain. [The content is "pain." The context is "universal."]

Reframing context: How long have you been thinking you've always been in pain? [Reframes context from universal to past.]

Reframing context: How do you know you'll be in pain tomorrow? [Reframes context from universal to future.]

Reframing content: How will you know when you're feeling less discomfort? [Reframes "pain" to "discomfort."]

Reframing content: You're only saying that because the pain had been especially bad this year. [Reframes content from general to specific.]

Send your questions about communication to Joel P. Bowman or Debra Basham, co-developers of SCS Matters, LLC. We will provide answers to those for you.
