DESCRIPTION: From Inside the Book
This book is about how to problem-solve using the 3Rs. The 3Rs is a three-step solution designed to promote effective and efficient problem-solving. While the 3Rs are easiest to apply and understand as a method of problem-solving, the 3Rs are not limited to applications involving problem-solving. You can use the 3Rs to find closer approximations to some dream or ideal, to fix something that is broken or not working, to improve current business practices or systems, to make action plans for your life, to plan for change or disaster, and to cope with difficulties.
A complete explanation of the 3Rs along with definitions is provided in the first chapter. The second chapter provides examples of the 3Rs in practice. The third chapter applies the 3Rs as a metatheory for counseling, shows how to use the 3Rs for relapse prevention and recovery, and demonstrates an advanced form of the 3Rs known as the 7Rs.
In this book, you are encouraged to solve problems deeply by not removing only symptoms, but by also removing the underlying intentions, maintainers, payoffs, reinforcements, supports, supporters, and sustainers for problems. Examples of some of the issues addressed include: attitudes, ego, expectations, feelings, mental blocks, self-defeating habits, and self-esteem.
A new paradigm or model for understanding feelings is also provided, and the 3Rs are applied to that model to help you to increase your healthy feelings and to reduce your unhealthy feelings. Many tables are included throughout the book in order to simplify and reinforce your discovery, learning, and problem-solving skill development. Referring to the tables can remind you of key insights and the contents of entire sections if not whole chapters. Better problem-solving produces better living and working. Solve problems better and live better today with the 3Rs.
