ABSTRACT
The article discusses the significance of the continuous therapy in attaining lasting recovery. Accordingly, visualizing the practice sessions helps clients realize that it is feasible to integrate them into their daily lives and enhances commitment. A daily practice of meditation or self-soothing mitigates the negative effects of stress. Such therapy can increase the likelihood that patients be able to transfer the skill learned in session to their daily activities.
