What is paradoxical intervention?
A paradoxical intervention is used in structural family therapy and strategic family therapy. It is a type of intervention or technique where the therapist's goal is to eliminate the resistance of a client. Therapist, essentially instructs client to continue the symptomatic behavior instead of stopping it. This is done ethically and without intentional harm to the client. The result is that the client is now forced to decide what they will do. However, whatever they do, they become aware that they actually do have more control than they first thought.

A paradox is a true statement or group of statements that leads toa contradiction or a situation which defies intuition. The term isalso used for an apparent contradiction that actually expressesanon-dual truth. A paradox is a statement containing seemingly contradictory orabsurd assertions which m…ay or may not be provable correct orincorrect.

An intervention is stepping in front of destructive behavior to offer a solution or way to treat the individuals issues to alleviate the destructive behavior.
A paradox's effects are very complicated and (no pun intended) paradoxical. Here is and example: If you were for whatever reason able to travel back in time (which I believe is impossible because in order to do that, you have to travel faster than the speed of light, and since light is the ne plus u…ltra in speed currently, this can't be done. I say currently because scientists have a theoretical element called atakilin, which can travel infinitley faster than the speed of light), to kill an ancester of yours, and you do so, you would never have been born, meaning you would not have travelled through time, meaning you would not have killed your ancestor, meaning you would be born, meaning you would travel through time to kill him/her, and infintrum.

The paradox of progress can be explained as the fact that there are great advancements in technology, medicine and communication etc over the past century but this has created more problems for people to deal with, instead of making life easier. higher economy and consumerism leads to more stress as… people work more and society falls behind. As we move forward as a society we create more problems. this is the paradox. (MORE)
The time-traveling grandma-killer. Suppose you build a time machine, go back in time to find your grandmother when she was three years old, and then drown her in the bathtub. So she never grows up, and never has any kids. Therefore, one of your parents was never born. Therefore, YOU were never born.… Therefore, you never traveled back in time and killed your infant grandma. So she DID grow up and have kids. Therefore, your parent WAS born. Therefore, YOU were born. Therefore, you traveled back in time and killed your infant grandma. Ad infinitum.

Search Steven Hawking information paradox to learn more A Good Example of a paradox You walk up to the bridge protector and ask for passage. He says for asking you will die. Then after a moment he says, "if you say a true statement i will choke you to death, if you say a false statement then i will drown you to death. Your choice. The young adventurer calmly replies, "You will drown me to death. The man doesn't know what to because if he drowns the man then its a true statement and he should have choked him. If he where to choke the man then the statement would have been false and he should have drowned the man. you can not win for loosing or maybe the silence is so loud. An example of a paradox might include "Nobody goes to thatrestaurant because it is too crowded." It is a paradox because bothno one and everyone are at the restaurant. A jumbo shrimp andbittersweet are also examples of paradoxes. There are many kinds and definitions of paradoxes, and many are variations of others. The most famous is Russel's Paradox, which revolutionised logic and set theory. Russel's: Does the set of sets that don't contain themselves contain itself? Barber: The barber shaves men who do not shave themselves. Who shaves him? Liar's: "My fellow citizens, I am now lying to you" Coastline: The smaller the ruler, the longer an island's coast is. Arrow information: You need to understand the info you're buying before you buy it. ...and many more. There are economic, political, topological, and even astronomical paradoxes that are actually quite entertaining. go back in time and kill your mother, then you would not exist anymore, but then your mom wouldn't be dead, then you would exist and kill your mother, ect. Also, Banach - Tarski Paradox states that you can have a 3-D sphere and you divide it up into 5 pieces. You rearrange them and you will get 2 balls identical with the original. Unlike the first one, this one is not contradictory. It's a paradox because it betrays basic intuition and logic (or "common sense") on volume, but who said this sphere have volume, or dimension for that matter? There is the well-known French paradox: French diet consists of fattening foods (cheese, butter), and yet they never seem to gain weight. Paradox of Choice: The more options you have, the less happy you will be with the choices you make. (MORE)
A time paradox generally refers to a paradox of time travel. The most well-known time paradox is the grandfather paradox. Follow the logic here: If you went back in time and killed your grandfather, then your own father would never have been born and thus you would never have been born. However, …if you were never born, then you could never have have gone back in time and killed your grandfather. Therein lies the paradox. What would happen then? Well, since no one's ever traveled through time, it's impossible to know for sure. There are some theories: . According to the Back to the Future films, the universe would explode. . After killing your grandfather, you would return to the present only to find yourself in a world where you don't exist. Basically, you would be like James Stewart in It's A Wonderful Life . . According to the Novikov self-consistency principle, if you went back in time and tried to kill your grandfather, you would find yourself unable to. Another time paradox is the predestination paradox, also known as a "casual loop". This was demonstrated in an episode of The Twilight Zone where a man traveled back in time to determine the cause of a famous fire. While in the past, he accidentally knocked over a kerosene lantern and started the very fire he was trying to determine the cause of. Unlike the grandfather paradox, this does not create a contradiction. In fact, strictly speaking, this is perfectly consistent. However, it's a paradox because it seems to indict that free will doesn't exist or that it's an illusion. An ontological paradox is kind of a version of the predestination paradox. Now, let's say that one day your future self shows up and gives you blueprints to build a time machine. You then build a time machine and travel back in time to give the blueprints to yourself, closing the loop. All this begs the question, where did the blueprints come from in the first place? Well, nowhere, apparently. Perhaps from an earlier timeline. A quick expanation of a time paradox is imagine if you had a time machine, and you went back and killed your grandfather, as a consequence of this your father or mother would never have been conceived, and thus neither will you have been. The paradox comes into play as this, if you were not conceived because you had killed your grandfather, and your parent wasnt born, and you werent born, this means you didnt exist, and If you didnt exist, you werent around to kill your grandfather in the first place, so your parent will have been born, thusly you would have been too. Its all very confusing. Also, imagine someone you love dies,and you go back in time to save them, and you do, the reason you travelled back in time is to save that person, if that person is saved and alive and well, there was no reason to go back in time anyway, so the loop begins again. Also in the new show into the universes with Stephen Hawking a crazy scientis builds a time machine, sets it to be a minute earlier then the present, assembles a gun, goes to the other side of the time machine sees himself assembling the gun and shoots himself through the machine.

The Triffin dilemma, less commonly called Triffin paradox, is the fundamental problem of the United States dollar's role as reserve currency in the Bretton Woods system, or more generally of a national currency as reserve currency. By the early 1960s, an ounce of gold could be exchanged for $40 i…n London, even though the price in the U.S. was $35. This difference showed that investors knew the dollar was overvalued and that time was running out. There was a solution to the Triffin dilemma for the U.S.: reduce the number of dollars in circulation by cutting the deficit and raising interest rates to attract dollars back into the country. Triffin Paradox pointed out the basic contradiction in the Bretton Woods system especially when dollar started losing its credibility to convert into gold at the promised rate of $35 per ounce of gold. The contradiction was that only when US ran deficits, could other countries build up forex reserves; but as soon as the US BoP deficits became unsustainably large, other countries lost faith, leading to demise of Bretton Woods in 1971.

Paradox of The Court : A law student agrees to pay his teacher after winning his first case. The teacher then sues the student (who has not yet won a case) for payment. (This is not as paradoxical as it appears. The teacher's suit must fail because the student has not won a case. However, if the …teacher sues the student a second time, the teacher should succeed, since the student has now won his first case. An astute judge in the first case would award costs against the teacher in the first case equal to the amount of the teacher's fee, thus giving the student the funds to pay the teacher off) (MORE)

A paradox is a statement or concept that contains conflicting ideas. In logic, a paradox is a statement that contradicts itself; for example, the statement "I never tell the truth" is a paradox because if the statement is true (T), it must be false (F) and if it is false (F), it must be true (T). In… everyday language, a paradox is a concept that seems absurd or contradictory, yet is true. In a Windows environment, for instance, it is a paradox that when a user wants to shut down their computer, it is necessary to first click "start". change of typing person Also another idea is that, saying nobody goes to that restraunt. its to crowded. if no one goes there it cant be crowded.

One good use of paradoxes is in literature. Statements can be made by main characters that contradict themselves in order to make the reader struggle to understand the true meaning of the statement, therefore making the literature a lot more interesting and complex. For example, in Shakespeare's … Hamlet , one character says " I must be cruel to be kind." This statement contradicts itself, making it a lot harder to understand than if the character had plainly stated what he meant. Paradoxes are useful because they test the limits of our understanding, expose the fragility of things that look obvious and also make us detect that which we do not know. A masterly teacher can use paradox to help us in "learning from not understanding" You can read more about this explanation in THE FASCINATION OF PARADOX (Learning from not understanding) Ioan Tenner 2010 (MORE)
It is an impossibility were something that stops an event which results that made the stopping event not stop it, so the event happens so it makes it stop itself in a never ending cycle,and my guess to what would happen is better than yours The below paradox is called a Logical paradox because …it deals with truth and contradiction. Many logical paradoxes are variations on Russel's Paradox , a key concept in advanced logic and set theory. Most people know it through the Barber paradox or the Liar's paradox, as seen below A paradox is simply a statement (or event) that contradicts itself. For example, take the statement 'I always lie' . If this is a true statement (ie the speaker DOES always lie) then the statement must be false because he would be lying when he made the statement! So the true statement is false and vice versa. An event paradox describes an event that again contradicts itself. The most famous is the 'Grandfather paradox': The paradox is this: Suppose a man traveled back in time and killed his biological grandfather before his grandfather met the traveller's grandmother. As a result of this event, one of the traveller's parents (and therefore the traveller himself) would never have been conceived or born. This would suggest that he could not have travelled back in time after all, because he didn't exist having never been born. But if this happened, this in turn implies the grandfather would still be alive , and the traveller would have been conceived, allowing him to travel back in time and kill his grandfather. But if he killed his grandfather..... and so it repeats itself.. Thus each possibility seems to contradict itself. (MORE)

A paradox is a situation that ends in a conclusion that does not justify the cause, and therefore self contradictory. A paradoxical situation would be, for example, if a british man came upon the shoresof America, and stated 'all Englishmen are liars'. This would mean that he, as an Englishman, is t…elling the truth, so it means that he is lying, so he is telling the truth, and so the loop repeats. this lack of resole has sparked many ideas of time paradoxes, and what the resolve would be. Like, if a man went back in time and killed his grandfather before he was conceived, then he would never hae benn born and couldn't have killed his grandfather, thus, scientifically speaking, not making sense. as no-one has a time machine, we don't know what may happen, but here are a few theories: The affected time and area would become non-existant, The Universe would explode, implode or become non-existent (Back to the Future) Time would justify the anomally, so the man himself may become his own grandfather (Futurama), The man may just find himself unable. Another though is, when suns are compressed, the become nonexistent, and because this too doesnt make a whole heap of sense, a black hole appears. Maybe that is the universes way of justifying thing that make no sense at all...? (MORE)
