Six different organizational problem-confrontations present the Clinical Sociologist with a variety of intervention challenges. We identify these contexts as: Entropy Prevention, Creative Downsizing, Compliance with Regulations, Choosing Preferred Futures, Creating Conditions for Innovation, Facilitating Dissemination of Successful Practices. Several intervention strategies are presented, and some typical traps to avoid are identified. Some generic interventions that are needed in all six contexts are summarized.
