Most intimidating psychological problems are in response to perceptions of fact that, while utilizing a typical commonsense good judgment as our interpreting lens, glance as though they're irrational, extraordinary, illogical and for this reason not easy to appreciate and deal with. but if we will be able to stick with the patient's personal common sense, that's certainly a non-ordinary common sense, we will come to acknowledge the principles of the sport, a video game that we will be able to truly play and win.

In his intriguing new strategy, Professor Nardone indicates that through figuring out the non-ordinary common sense of an issue (which is usually in keeping with the good judgment of trust, paradox and contradiction), we will come to settle on the simplest techniques to lead to potent swap. this article with its quite a few case reports reveal how those thoughts replicate the underlying non-ordinary good judgment of every case, permitting our interventions to be extra applicable to the sufferer, who then begins to query his/her comparable non-ordinary common sense, thereby major it to self-annulment, and therefore successful with no scuffling with it.

Hence the importance of using a non-ordinary logic to incorporate stratagems that will introduce change where the system would naturally tend to persist in its homeostasis. Why a non-ordinary logic? If a system needs to be changed at a cognitive level but is emotionally resistant, we cannot expect to change it with an explanation, that is to say by using an ordinary logic. It would be strategically naive: the more I warn the 22 THE LOGIC OF THERAPEUTIC CHANGE person regarding the possibility of change, the more the person will resist change; the more I push for change, the more he will boycott it, not because he is not compliant but because of the inherent tendency to maintain equilibrium.

These are universal concepts. As Watzlawick said: “We cannot not communicate” (Watzlawick, Beavin, & Jackson, 1967) and we cannot not interact. The pragmatics of communication also tells us that each message has a digital and an analogical part. Here, two characters play a fundamental role: Bateson first, then Newton Da Costa, that is to say those who have sought to systematise new logic models that are able to overcome the traditional models’ limits and that are based on the notion of interaction, symbolic or real, between the subject and reality (Bateson & Jackson, 1964; Bateson, 1972; Da Costa, 1989a, 1989b).

Because of that, she did not avoid doing something that she used to so far avoid, and she did not ask for help. This example clearly outlines the basic concept of perceptual saltus (leap). The objective of any strategic therapy built with advanced technology is to produce this therapeutic change as soon as possible: a change in perception that changes the reaction, which in turn will also modify behaviour and cognition. For this saltus to happen, we don’t always need stunning or evocative techniques like the pirouette technique; I prescribed it to nearly 1,000 patients in the 1990s but now I rarely use it because it is possible to obtain the same therapeutic effects using more subtle, softer, and less intrusive techniques.
