Abstract: Research evidence supports the efficacy of vicarious reinforcement in increasing client completion of between-session assignments. The use of vicarious reinforcement involves presenting, usually in an anecdote, the example of a real-life person who performed a task similar to the one about to be assigned to a client and benefitted. The vicarious-reinforcement effect on the target behaviour of assignment completion can likely be enhanced by using multiple models, and by using models who are likeable, high in prestige, and similar to the client. In some cases, the therapist can provide a personal anecdote to increase the chances the client will complete an assignment.
