Define the problem(s) to be tackled

Problems can be divided into those requiring a choice between alternatives (e.g. shall I take this job; shall I leave my spouse?) and those requiring the attainment of specific goals (e.g. how can I do my job better; how can I improve the relationship with my spouse?). Sometimes this stage is straightforward because the problems are obvious (e.g. inability to pay a debt; a specific sexual dysfunction). Very often it demands considerable time and careful exploration to help the patient decide precisely what his problems are. This is more likely when, for example, the difficulties concern the general aspects of a relationship, or non-specific dissatisfaction a person may experience with his current lifestyle.
