Action therapy techniques provide vivid experiences that, in themselves, often promote therapeutic change via insight. Applicable to all action therapies, verbal Post-Enactment Processing (PEP) provides reflection, questioning and associations during the verbal discourse that may follow therapeutically guided enactments. Ways of conducting PEP to facilitate insight are described in detail through a case example drawn from Rehearsals for Growth (RfG) couples therapy.
