We start discussing coping skills, for example using a calendar and to-do list. Ideally we focus on what has the biggest result first to help users stay motivated and build confidence in themselves and the therapy
Attention regulation skills
We help users understand and manage their own attention-span, resulting in less energy going into struggling with tasks, and a kinder, more helpful strategy to deal with tasks that are hard.
We start looking at the way the user looks at a problem, and start identifying dysfunctional automatic thought patterns.We give users tools to help them to replace these thoughts by functional thoughts that will help them resolve the problem.
We help users consolidate their new skills, paying attention to what they feel insecure about.
