- It is usually safe to assume that the intensity of an individual's problems fluctuates constantly. Most likely there have been situations in which the problem was less intense and when things were better. It can be helpful to identify and process through some of these situations as they will often help to find ideas to solve the problem.
An example of how exception-seeking questions may be asked is:
- Have there been times when the problem did not happen?
- When were these times and what was different?
- What did you do differently during those times that the problem did not happen?
