Reframing is the process used to help people change their perspective and view on their issues. It is a powerful therapeutic tool that can create profound and fast change.

Framing refers to the way a condition is described or an issue is worded. The reframing is the process of changing the way it is presented so that it maintains its fundamental meaning but is more likely to support a resolution. A simple example of a frame and reframe is:

  1. Frame: I made a mistake, and therefore I'm useless.
  2. Reframe: I tried something that didn't work, so next time I'll try something different.
