The strategic movement
The Palo Alto strategic systemic approach aims to resolve relational problems through brief interventions.
- The strategic systemic approach leads a person or a group of persons to go through a strategic movement: rendering harmful behaviour redundant.
- The strategic movement enables a change to take place in the stance of an individual with regard to their relationships and interactions: stopping doing more of the same thing.
- The change in stance which is sought consists, for some people, in engaging in a proactive accountability process: enabling greater autonomy for each individual.
The strategic systemic approach provides a relational context where an individual actively becomes responsible for his/her behaviour and for its resulting relational consequences in a given situation
