Explain the phases of stress inoculation training (Marks 5)


Phases of stress inoculation training are as follows

  • Conceptual-education phase-Primary focus is on creating a working relationship and therapeutic alliance with the clients. This is mainly done by helping them gain a better understanding of the nature of stress and reconceptualizing it in social- interactive terms
  • Skills acquisition and consolidation phase-The focus is on giving clients a variety of behavioral and cognitive coping skills to apply to a stressful situations. The training involves cognitive coping. Meichenbaum provides some examples of coping statements that are rehearsed in the phase of SIT “How can ipreparefor stressor?” , “How can I confront and deal with what is stressing me?”

Clients are also exposed to relaxation training, social skills training and self-instructional training

  • Application and follow-through phase-The focus is on carefully arranging for transfer and maintenance of change from the therapeutic situation to everyday life. Clients practice their new self — statements and apply their new skills to everyday life
