This research examines a group of professional practitioners engaged in a reframing exercise on complex social problems. The research is part of a broader research question which is examining problem solving practices and the role of design in complex social problems. This paper reports on a workshop involving seven practitioners who were facilitated through the Frame Creation workshop methodology by the (anonymized) research team with the process documented for analysis. The findings illustrate the shifting of frames from a starting point of security or protection, to frames that are more open and able to address the broader issues surrounding the problems. The findings highlight the significantly different solutions that can be created by using a design process that focuses on human needs.
