One of the most useful and dare I say it powerful change process’s I know is what is called N-Step reframing.
This is a particularly relevant process for working with what has been termed second order change for symptoms like addiction, secondary gain and physical symptoms in client and personal change sessions.
This is kind of like but rather different to the traditional NLP 6-Step reframing technique BUT at every step within the process we are utilising honest unconscious signals or ideo-motor responses to get an honest unconscious response or confirmation at each point in the interaction. The interaction is either with yourself ( as self application ) or with your clients.
This process is for both resolving unwanted or problematic behaviours and equally enhancing good behaviours to make them even better.
The premise here is that all behaviour serves some positive function so the behaviours meta-process function has some positive intention and that intention can be both enhanced behaviourally or swapped for some behaviour that better satisfies the meta-intention and is better for your core requirements.
By creating a context, not a content for new and improved behaviours, which are left to the unconscious to choose ( without any conscious knowledge ) we, as facilitators, open a direct line to the power and knowledge that is literally outside conscious thought. But … backed up with an honest unconscious reply.
