Therapist: “Give an example that shows how you attempt to deal with the problem”
Applicant: “I’m yelling at the child”
“?Therapist: “What happens when you scream”
We have to be aware that people often express their feelings, about the difficulties, and do not describe their actions about dealing with them. Therefore, the questions should be more directed about what has been done about the difficulty:
“What do you do when …”, “What do you say when they do …”, “How are you trying to prevent?”, “What makes you do…?”, “What prevents you from doing…?”, Etc.
The received answers are varied: “Nothing”, I tried everything and it does not help “, ” I’ve been discouraged… I do not know what to do! ” In such cases there is a need to go back and ask for details: ” Anyway, think and describe what you would normally do when difficulty arises …. ”
It is important, of course, get data not only on the client’s actions, but also on other persons, concerned.
