What is Strategic Intervention?
Strategic Intervention (SI) is a project
dedicated to extracting the most practical and effective forms of strategic
action and communication from a variety of disciplines: Ericksonian therapy,
strategic family therapy, Human Needs Psychology, organizational psychology, neurolinguistics, psychology of influence, strategic studies, traditions of
diplomacy and negotiation, and others. The goal of the SI is to develop an eminently practical method for
taking action in a strategic way to get things done so that human needs
are fulfilled and elevated. These solutions actually
deliver more benefit for
less effort. The basic principle is
that individuals, relationships, organizations and community can be directed
toward positive change through the strategic planning of skilful interventions.
The tradition of Strategic Intervention originates with the
understanding of the power of meaning to shape all aspects of a human being's
life. SI is highly influenced by the great insights and works of Victor Frankl
and Milton Erickson's creative breakthroughs in human intervention.
The goal of Strategic Intervention is to integrate
the core insights of these traditions into a method of practical strategic
action. A Strategic Interventionist navigates a variety of scenarios ranging
from individual problems to those of the family, the peer group, the
organization and the larger social system.
