Learning to Solve Problems
PROVIDING A SUPPORTIVE ENVIRONMENT FOR INDIVIDUALS TO CREATE THE BEST VERSIONS OF THEMSELVES
Bricolage in the modern sense can be defined as a kind of inventiveness, and an ability to improvise a solution to a problem without proper or obvious tools or materials.
The term “psychological bricolage” is used to explain the mental processes through which an individual develops novel solutions to problems by making use of previously unrelated knowledge or ideas
they already possess.
Psychological bricolage, therefore, refers to the cognitive processes that enable individuals to retrieve and recombine previously unrelated knowledge they already possess.
At Bricolage our focus is on helping those with emotional and or substance-abuse issues that are facing adversity in their lives.
BUILDING BLOCK OF RESILIENCE
True resilience is the ability to make do with whatever is at hand. Psychologists follow the lead of French anthropologist Claude Levi-Strauss in calling this skill bricolage. The roots of the word are closely tied to the concept of resilience, which literally means “bouncing back.”
