When an activity professional carries out a program of activities, a methodical scheme is followed. The outline is a format so that the person doing the activity creates a successful program for their clients. This same method applies to re-motivation sessions because there are five steps that are involved. In this article, I will deal with Step II and then describe how it works.
In Step II, that is called “A Bridge to the Real World.” The facilitator uses questions to lead the group to the topic and to the poem where the topic is objective in nature. The questions that are used in Step 2 are called bounce questions. Bounce questions are a set of questions that logically guide clients from one topic to another. When writing the session, the default questions and answers. The questions that the remotivation therapist asks are similar to those used in everyday conversations.
The leader asks a minimum of three questions or a maximum of four questions; where each set of questions has four possible answers. However, clients may respond with another response that you did not anticipate but is acceptable. Below is an example from Step II where there are four questions that lead to the topic and poem for the session.
STEP II “A bridge to the real world”
A. What are the four seasons of the year?
B. What is special about summer?
3. Good weather
C. What kind of outdoor activity can you do?
3. Eat food
D. What type of activity is associated with food?
1. I don’t know
4. Outdoor refreshments
At the end of Step II, the facilitator reads a poem about a barbecue. Then take the group to the topic of the day, which for this article is about barbecues.
As you can see in the example above, one of the answers leads to another set of questions that eventually leads to the poem and the topic of the session.
In Step 2, the facilitator takes the client out of their injured area by focusing on the unhurt aspect of their mind. The Remotivation Therapist can redirect the client to discuss everyday objects instead of trying and focusing on their limitations. The leader is capable of pulling clients out of themselves. This is a step in a step of five in a re-motivation therapy session that helps residents with cognitive deficits and physical limitations increase their self-esteem.
