Within ‘the hegemony of the right’ the mis-match between the writing and the wright hand is implicated in many seemingly intractible physical, intellectual, emotional and social problems

Handling seemingly intractable personal and interpersonal problems: a paradigm shift

The paradigm shift is radical in three respects:

  • practically it involves checking for a mis-match between the writing and the wright  hand: this is a co-factor in many seemingly intractable personal and interpersonal problems.
  • conceptually it is grounded in a faceted rather than componented  model of the human individual. This can be pictured as a tetrahedral pyramid with physical, intellectual, emotional and social faces. The key implication of this model is that if something is found to be out of kilter with one facet, deeper probing will reveal the other facets will be found to be out of kilter too.
  • conceptually it regards the ‘unit of analysis’ to be the interaction between individuals, and not the individual alone. There are three types of such interaction:
    • mutually beneficial: both parties to the interaction benefit:  engage in progressive problem shifting
    • mutually destructive: neither party to the interaction benefits: engages in regressive problem shifting
    • zero-sum: one party gains / progesses and the other loses or remains static

Testimonials

These testimonials evidence the success of conducting assessments for personal, educational, medico-legal and legal purposes within this new framework. The radical aspect is to seek to eliminate  a mis-match between the writing and the adept hand as a co-factor in the presenting problem. If  the mis-match is found to be present  then there is a need to ensure that ‘treatment programmes’  take account of this generally unacknowledged condition.
