I use a variety of creative methods to help the consumer build an awareness of how his or her thinking is connected to feeling and behavior. I sometimes use puppets and simple games to help illustrate this connection. My method also facilitates the present experience of doing things which are awkward, so the consumer can see how a certain behavior feels. An example would be the act of talking to a family member in a new and positive way. The belief that something bad will happen is usually what has kept a person from engaging in the new and positive behavior.
