Introduction

Understanding Part 5In
Part 5, you will imagine implementing the new behaviors you identified
in 4E. It is still not time to actually implement your new behaviors, as
Parts 5 and 6 will help you to iron out the wrinkles.Be sure to submit all of the parts listed in the blue box below.Note: Submit both CCC Part 5 and CCC Part 6 in one document, but start a new page for CCC Part 6.
CCC Part 5: Private Covert Rehearsal Practicing Conversations Alone in Your Imagination

5A. Covert Rehearsal is an effective way of trying out new communication behaviors.
Think about a time that you were daydreaming, or dreaming at night.
You can use your imagination to think about an experience
or situation that is not really happening at that time or in that
place. You can do the same type of simulation on purpose
to think about a time and place that will allow you to practice your
new interpersonal communication skill to meet your goal
as outlined in your new behaviors listed in CCC Part 4E.

Choose one or more behaviors to work on that are listed in CCC Part 4E.
Choose a communication event that you would like to prepare for privately or secretly – covertly. As you imagine yourself
practicing your new skill, focus hard on specific interactions. Actually think about an interpersonal communication exchange
– what you say, and how the other person responds. Don’t just go through the motions. Really see yourself asking specific
questions, making specific comments, and hearing the other person replying. As you imagine the sequence, practice precisely
what you want to say and how you want to say it. Experiment with what feels to be the most effective and comfortable way
for you to implement your new behaviors.

By covertly rehearsing, you make it much more likely that you will
be actually performing the behavior comfortably and effectively
in real life situations. This surprising effect of covert rehearsal
has been shown in numerous studies. What makes covert
rehearsal particularly useful is that you can carry it around and do
it anywhere – in the shower, driving to work, scrubbing
the floor, and so forth. The more you vary covertly rehearsing a
particular episode, the more likely you will be able to
perform well in the actual situation. For example, if you are
planning to initiate and maintain a conversation with your
neighbor, you should think through a number of possible topics and
questions before finally choosing what you perceive to
be the best options. In other words, think before you speak. Plan
what you will say and do in a particular situation where
you can practice your goal.

Covert rehearsal can be used both to prepare for an upcoming communication event, and to evaluate and revise an event that
has already occurred – as in instant replay. This is done all the time for sports teams. Each player watches the game again
and decides how he or she could do it better next time. Both planning ahead before a conversation and reflecting after a
conversation will increase the probability that you will perform your new skill effectively the next time you use it.

Note that some people initially find it difficult to imagine specific conversations with others. Keep with it if you have
difficulty. You will eventually succeed with practice, and when you do, you will be amazed at the effect. If you are having
a hard time talking to people in your mind, speak to yourself out loud or speak to your reflection in the mirror. Decide
what situation you would like to practice; do you want to plan a new conversation, or replay a past situation but change
the outcome? Where will you have this conversation – in the kitchen, on the bus, in the cafeteria at lunch, at school in
a classroom, in the board room, in your manager’s office, or at a friend’s house?

Provide a detailed narrative that identifies your selected
communication event. Write a description of your surroundings
– date, time, location, specific room, physical surroundings and so
forth, and the people who will participate in this communication
event. Name the people involved, what you will talk about, where it
takes place, when it takes place, how it should occur,
and why you need to plan for a better conversation next time. How
will your physical surroundings affect your rehearsal?

5B. Covert Practice:
In a quiet place, begin thinking about the conversation event from Part 5A, as you’d like to see it evolve.
Plan and write down your nonverbal and verbal behaviors and
responses, including your own behaviors and responses and the reactions
of the other person in the communication event.

When you hit rough spots, try a variety of options until you find a
response that pleases you. If you are having trouble
with this, pretend you are an author planning to write the dialogue
for a reality TV episode, or you are composing lines
for characters in a play or movie or book. Use the mirror technique
and take turns roleplaying both people in the conversation.
You can also use puppets, stuffed animals, socks on your hands, or
different hats or coats to take the parts of two people
having a conversation.

What can you see in the background? The scenery department needs to
know how to create the setting for the play, movie,
or reality TV show. The illustrator needs to know what to draw or
paint for the book you are writing. You need to know exactly
what type of situation you are dealing with before you can write the
dialogue for the characters.

When you’re satisfied with your imagined scene, write it out
so you can see how it looks and read it aloud so you can hear how it
sounds.

If you are writing a one-act play, you can plan and add stage directions.

Enter left: The wife enters the kitchen to angrily scream at the dawdling children who won’t eat their supper.

Then write her exact words down so your actor will know what to do and say. Identify each speaker and use quotation marks
for their exact words.

Wife, using a loud and angry voice: “Aren’t you children finished eating your supper yet?”

5C. Reflect on this experience. Write a paragraph or two to
address your observations and reactions to the private covert rehearsal
experience. How did you feel at first as you prepared for your private
covert rehearsal? How did you feel after you finished it? What behaviors
or patterns did you use from Part 4E? Did you notice any new behaviors
or patterns that you have not noted previously?

Report for CCC Part 5

Include in Part 5 of your report the following items:

5A.
In this section, you are to select a
communication event, related to your goal, for which you will prepare
covertly.
Choose one or more behaviors to work on that are listed in CCC Part 4E.
Provide a detailed narrative that identifies
your selected communication event. Write a description of your
surroundings
– date, time, location, specific room, physical
surroundings and so forth, and the people who will participate in this
communication
event. Name the people involved, what you will
talk about, where it takes place, when it takes place, how it should
occur,
and why you need to plan for a better
conversation next time. How will your physical surroundings affect your
rehearsal?

5B.
Plan and write down your nonverbal and verbal
behaviors and responses, including your own planned behaviors and
responses
and the planned reactions of the other person in
the communication event.

5C.
Reflect on this experience. Write a paragraph or
two to address your observations and reactions to the private covert
rehearsal
experience. How did you feel at first as you
prepared for your private covert rehearsal? How did you feel after you
finished
it? What behaviors or patterns did you use from
Part 4E? Did you notice any new behaviors or patterns that you have not
noted
previously?

CCC Part 6: Shared
Behavioral Rehearsal – Practicing your new behavior by roleplaying with a
family member or close friend who is NOT directly involved in your goal

Understanding Part 6

In Part 6, you will take your rehearsal a step further by
role-playing with someone who is willing to lend you a hand. Practicing
implementation of the new behaviors you identified in 4E
will give you insight into how another person might react in a real-life
situation, preparing you to respond or adapt when necessary.

Be sure to submit all of the items outlined in the blue box.

6A. Shared Behavior Rehearsal is also known as “role playing.”
Rehearsing communication behavior is useful both before and after an
event. Practicing before an event allows you to enter
a communication situation in your most prepared state. Rehearsing a
disappointing situation after it occurs gives you a chance
to discover and remedy aspects of your own behavior that were less
than satisfactory.

Like covert rehearsal, practicing
the new communication behaviors that you identified in CCC Part 4E
through role-play increases the likelihood that you will be
successful in Part 7 when you actually implement the changes
in real-life situations. Again, it may feel silly at first, but if
you take the role-playing seriously, you will be amazed
at what you will take away from it. Role-play your imagined scene
for your conversation event with a friend or family member
who is NOT directly involved in your communication problem. Say your
lines as you planned them. Your practice partner may
not really say what you thought he or she would say. Then show him
or her the written script, and have him or her read or
act out the scenario. You can practice this a few times both with
and without the script. Write a detailed narrative of what
happened in the behavior rehearsal. What did you do? How were your
behaviors received? How satisfied were you with your performance
of the behaviors in your goal from Part 4E?

6B1.
Reflect on your shared behavioral rehearsal experience. Write a paragraph or two to address your observations and reactions
to the shared behavior rehearsal experience of role-playing with a friend or family member who is not directly involved in
your communication problem. How did you choose your shared behavior rehearsal partner? Does he or she know about the person
or situation being focused on for your CCC goal? Does he or she normally offer guidance and advice in a trustworthy manner
already in your established relationship with this person?

6B2.
Reflect on your shared behavioral rehearsal experience. Write a
paragraph or two to address your observations and reactions
to the shared behavior rehearsal experience as far as planning is
concerned. Did your shared behavioral rehearsal go as planned,
or was it totally different than you imagined it would be? How did
you feel at first as you prepared for your shared behavioral
rehearsal? How did you feel after you finished it? What behaviors or
patterns did you use from Part 4E? Did you notice any
new behaviors or patterns that you have not noted previously?

Report for CCC Part 6

In this section, you are to simulate the
communication event in Part 5 by enlisting a family member or close
friend to play
the role of the other person in that event.
Practice your behaviors and responses in that behavior rehearsal, and
include
in Part 6 of your report the following
deliverables:

6A.
Role-play your imagined scene for your
conversation event with a friend or family member who is NOT directly
involved in
your communication problem. Say your lines as
you planned them. Your practice partner may not really say what you
thought
he or she would say. Then show him or her the
written script, and have him or her read or act out the scenario. You
can practice
this a few times both with and without the
script. Write a detailed narrative of what happened in the behavior
rehearsal.
What did you do? How were your behaviors
received? How satisfied were you with your performance of the behaviors
in your
goal from Part 4E?

6B1.
Reflect on your shared behavioral rehearsal
experience. Write a paragraph or two to address your observations and
reactions
to the shared behavior rehearsal experience of
role-playing with a friend or family member who is not directly involved
in
your communication problem. How did you choose
your shared behavior rehearsal partner? Does he or she know about the
person
or situation being focused on for your CCC goal?
Does he or she normally offer guidance and advice in a trustworthy
manner
already in your established relationship with
this person?

6B2.
Reflect on your shared behavioral rehearsal
experience. Write a paragraph or two to address your observations and
reactions
to the shared behavior rehearsal experience as
far as planning is concerned. Did your shared behavioral rehearsal go as
planned,
or was it totally different than you imagined it
would be? How did you feel at first as you prepared for your shared
behavioral
rehearsal? How did you feel after you finished
it? What behaviors or patterns did you use from Part 4E? Did you notice
any
new behaviors or patterns that you have not
noted previously?
