Review the week, homework tasks and set agenda

Start with an informal discussion about general activities, and also determine whether there are any important issues that have arisen, any questions so far.

Review the homework activity with the client, and discuss how the client was able to manage/challenge their thoughts about using speed. If the client has not completed the homework task, ask them to do so now. In addition, check how well the client was able to use the activity record and list of pleasurable activities.

Review the client's speed use pattern for the week. Did the client meet the planned goals for tapering? Reinforce positive changes and address minor problems if convenient.

Set the agenda for the session by explaining to the client the issues that will be covered.
