Identify the Problem: Overview
Solving a personal or interpersonal problem starts with understanding it fully. You have to be your own investigative reporter. This means you must learn to separate the facts from presumptions. When you do this, you may find that your problem is different than you first thought. This process involves identifying what is bothering you and why, when and where it happens, and the complex communication elements you may be overlooking. The more that you understand the problems you are facing, the better prepared you will be in developing a strategy to address them.
