Sessions 4 and 5 Pleasant Activities Scheduling Problem Solving

Jason's mood continued to improve, and he began to elaborate upon his thoughts during the session. He reportedly went with a friend to a movie, which was first time Jason had gone out socially in several months. Moreover, he signed up to audition for a play at school. We introduced a social problem-solving technique that he could use across multiple situations. Addressing Jason's lack of goals and his difficulties envisioning the future, we asked, "What would give you a great life?" He responded, "Getting a summer job and . . . doing something important to me, so I'm being the person I am." To build upon these statements, Jason's homework assignment was to prepare a list of possible summer jobs, and to consider what he might like to be like as a person in the future.

Exploring EFT

EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique. It works to free the user of both physical and emotional pain and relieve chronic conditions by healing the physical responses our bodies make after we've been hurt or experienced pain. While some people do not carry the effects of these experiences, others have bodies that hold onto these memories, which affect the way the body works. Because it is a free and fast technique, even if you are not one hundred percent committed to whether it works or not, it is still worth giving it a shot and seeing if there is any improvement.
