Problems can make you feel overwhelmed or out of control. Knowing the right steps to solve them helps you face it head-on and reach a solution that works. For example, what if someone you love would benefit from therapy, but they don't want to go?
Focus On The Problem
First, define the problem narrowly. Be clear about what is troubling or upsetting you. Focus on the issue and not the symptoms.
Once you've defined the problem, brainstorm possible solutions. These ideas can be crazy, outside-the-box, or simplistic. You might also consider bouncing ideas off of others. The more ideas you can come up with, the better your chance of finding a solution.
Make a list of the reasons your loved one won't go to therapy and counter each with a definite benefit.
