In this video, we will go through these concepts with a mock client.
This is a 22-year-old male who has a fear of yelling blasphemous phrases while sitting in church. He has avoided attending church for the past year due to these fears. When he has attended church, he attempts to block the phrases and fears by holding other phrases in his mind, praying, closing his eyes, sitting in the back, and pinching his legs.
This is an example of a willingness practice and setting behavioral commitments with him. This is done in a more fluid manner and is done in a different order than previously discussed. And this is to show you how you can do more of a dance with these processes to make them match where the client is at.
