Marsha Linehan (2009) provides dynamic, engaging demonstrations with two separate volunteers using nonjudgmental “chain analysis” to identify their problem behavior and look for controlling variables. Rather than using self-discipline, she suggests practical methods such as listing pros and cons and setting up consequences if the behavior continues. Both volunteers reported great satisfaction with the process.
