Example text

As a result of tracking the short-­term consequences, Marilyn avoided studying and engaged in distraction (behavior) to reduce the intensity of her internal behavior or events (short-­term consequence). In doing so, she did not have the opportunity to track the possible long-­term consequences of her behavior, such as failing the test and feeling ashamed, or passing the test and feeling proud. Private events such as memories, thoughts, emotions, and physical feelings connected to failing and being a loser are now aversive to Marilyn.

This is possible because of the relational frames this adolescent has established.

But once our minds have made connections between things, they do not unlearn them.
