The therapist asks the client, of a gamblers' support group, the first question: "You won $1,000 in gambling. What did you feel?" Normally, the client responds by moving one step forward because he or she feels happy. The step is usually very small because the client is very cautious of the risk of falling down from the table. Then comes the second and third scenarios: "You won $2,000 and bought yourself a nice watch. What did you feel?" "You lost $5,000 and you did not have money to pay for your son's tuition fee. What did you feel?" The client moves forward or backward according to his or her feelings toward the scenarios.

For female clients in extramarital affair group, the happy scenarios can be "dining with your loved one" and "you accompanied him while he was on a business trip." Unhappy scenarios can be: "he had to stay at home with his wife on Valentine's Day" and "you could not hold his hand in public."
