  • Stress-inoculation training (SIT)
    • Michenbaum - believed people can be trained to 'innoculate' themselves against a stressor before it arises
    • Conceptualisation
      • client is encouraged to 'relive' stressful situations and to analyse various features - what was stressful?, how did they attempt to cope?
      • sharing an experience can help to achieve a greater understanding of the nature of the stress and client's reaction to it
    • Application
      • client tries out new, learnt skills in the real world
      • client will consider, with therapist, how well these skills worked
    • Skills training and practice
      • coping skills are taught and practised with therapist
