The Basis of Reframing is to Separate Intention from Behavior
All meaning is context dependent. If you change the context, meaning or content, you can change the original meaning. • All content is reframable simple by changing the structure the process or context.
A. CONTEXT REFRAME:
“I’m too…” or “He is too…”.
Think of a different context in which the person will respond differently to the same behavior
Tools: location; space; frame size; sharp angle; time; duration; circumstances; family; business; age; resources; intention; the opposite of consequences; chunking; deletion; distortion; generalization; opposite; negate; reverse; frame size; association; dissociation; submodalities; apply to self;
B. MEANING REFRAME
Whenever “X”, I respond “Y”.
Ask yourself, “What else could this behavior mean?” or internally think of an opposite frame, or a different meaning. “What is it that this person hasn’t noticed (in this context) that will bring about a different meaning, and change his response?”
C. CONTENT REFRAME
(actually changing the content of the experience)
