• After recognition, individual need to present the problem in a simpler form, based on prior knowledge.
  • Initial and goal state need to be clear with practical limitations
  • Understand nature of problem, make it meaningful and approach it using knowledge you have.
  • Establishing the relevant information from irrelevant, and reframing the problem
  • Too much information can be a barrier to problem representation.

E.g. Illicit Drug Use

  • Law and order problem
  • Health problem
  • Social problem
  • Political problem
  • Moral problem

Reframe Problem = Perceptual Influence of Initial & Goal States = Appropriate Strategies
