Abstract

The ability to solve life problems creatively is an important attribute of mentally healthy people. It helps to handle all kinds of life challenges. Correspondingly, behaviour psychotherapists teach patients an approved process of creative problem solving to advance their mental health. Interestingly, the process model psychotherapists implement to tackle life problems is not at all unique. Engineers use and teach almost an identical process to confront engineering design problems, referring to their approach as “design thinking”. Parallels like these open up multiple opportunities for a fruitful exchange. In this chapter, we present a design thinking based problem solving crash course for psychotherapy to help people tackle personal life problems creatively. The crash course has been set up on Tele-Board MED, a digital documentation system for medical settings.
