Eckstein D: Reframing as an Innovative Educational Technique: Turning a Perceived Inability into an Asset.
Korean Journal of Thinking and Problem Solving 14(1): 37-47, 2004.
Abstract: New learnings are inhibited by early formed paradigms. Reframing, forming new impressions, creates a new version of habitual patterns. This article presents specific reframing techniques as: Senoi dreamwork; neuro-linguistic programming; cognitive restructuring; and the Adlerian psychology technique of turning a perceived negative into a positive. It concludes with specific suggestions for educators and an example of reframing by a seventh grade teacher. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved).
