Storyboard Text

  • OT Group: Leisure
  • I'm just too depressed and anxious. It's not going to happen Aly.
  • I'm not sure myself, I guess it's just what I've always done. The urges still come though.
  • OT Group: Leisure
  • Hm. Kyle, what changes did you make in your routine that you felt made big changes in the way you handle your recovery?
  • I had to create all new routines and find new leisure activities, because the ones I participated in before all revolved around alcohol.  Instead of just removing alcohol, now me and my friends do new and different things together
  • OT Group: Leisure
  • Great point Kyle! Claudia, I know you want to wait to participate in other leisure activities due to your symptoms, but you should consider trying to use those activities as a way to feel better.
  • Kyle has recently taken initiative to change his routines and leisure activities to make recovery easier to maintain - He's in action. Nancy is in contemplation, as she's open to ideas to adjust her routines. Claudia is in pre-contemplation, as she is not considering changing her routines at this time (Glanz, 2008).
  • OT Group: Leisure
  • The OT group leader recognizes that Nancy is considering making changes to her routines, and utilizes other group members to help to problem solve and motivate her (American Psychological Association, 2018).
  • OT Group: Leisure
  • Yeah, maybe. I don't know, I see what you're saying but it just feels too hard right now.
  • Kyle shares an important message with the group, that it's important in recovery to avoid situations or habits that would cause urges. This is important for Kyle as he is in the action stage, and therefore at high risk for relapse (Glanz, 2008).
  • Well, I'm glad that you're all participating today, as you will be able to use these tools on your own time outside of group to make these changes when you're ready.!
  • OT Group: Leisure
  • The OT tries to motivate Claudia to use occupation as a means as well as an end goal in order to increase life balance and decrease anxiety and depression (Chen & Chippendale, 2018). 
  • The client has been informed and given advice by both group members and the OT, however she is still being ambivalent towards change. She is still in pre-contemplation stage, not ready to consider making changes yet (Glanz, 2008).
  • The OT will now continue discussing the benefits of leisure and balance to overall wellness, using a structured activity and discussion. The members will be given handouts to use as a reference for use at home in order to continue to motivate change.
