Chapter Summary

In this chapter, we introduced you to some techniques from various theories to help transform insight into action. A significant portion of the chapter was dedicated to good goal setting because that is a necessary part of therapy and must be done well in order for everything else to work. If you don’t know where you are going, how can you get there? We also introduced you to reinforcement, empty chair, transference, relaxation training, and rehearsal and imagery. We are now approaching the issue of evaluating how you are doing and terminating with your client, discussed in the next chapter.
