Mental Rehearsal of Assigned Tasks or Activities

Purpose: To anticipate pitfalls that might occur while completing certain activities.


Method: Talk through the steps of a planned activity with the patient, probing when necessary and helping the patient to problem solve when problems arise.
Example: The patient’s assignment is to call a friend and invite her to lunch. The patient describes this from the time that she picks up the phone until she hangs up. Therapist asks “What if…?” types of questions and helps the patient solve these small problem situations.
Examples:

“What if there is no answer the first time you call?”

“What if your friend cannot talk but asks you to call back later?”

“What if your friend says that she has plans that day?”
