Redundant Attempted Solutions: 50 Years of Theory, Evolution, and New Supporting Data

Redundant Attempted Solutions: 50 Years of Theory, Evolution, and New Supporting Data The theory of redundant attempted solutions (RAS) is described from its origins to today. Based in cybernetics and introduced at the Mental Research Institute in Palo Alto, California, the main principle of RAS is that repeating an unsuccessful solution may actually serve to perpetuate and further entrench a problem. A true reducer of complexity, a definition of RAS is presented that appreciates biopsychosocial dimensions of diagnosis and intervention. Data are also presented from SYPRENE, a systemic therapy practice research network that documents the use of strategic interventions to stop RAS. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Australian and New Zealand Journal of Family Therapy Wiley

Abstract

The theory of redundant attempted solutions (RAS) is described from its origins to today. Based in cybernetics and introduced at the Mental Research Institute in Palo Alto, California, the main principle of RAS is that repeating an unsuccessful solution may actually serve to perpetuate and further entrench a problem. A true reducer of complexity, a definition of RAS is presented that appreciates biopsychosocial dimensions of diagnosis and intervention. Data are also presented from SYPRENE, a systemic therapy practice research network that documents the use of strategic interventions to stop RAS.
