How to Stop Lying Worksheet

What is the theory behind this How to Stop Lying Worksheet?

Therapy for lying behaviour attempts to explore an individual’s maladaptive reasonings and motivations behind their need to lie. It focuses on helping them identify and modify faulty core beliefs contributing to their habits and helps them acknowledge how their behavior is detrimental to not just them but others around them as well. 

How will the worksheet help?

This worksheet will help clients struggling with their lying behaviour to become more observant of what triggers this habit. After a while, a pattern may emerge that can provide vital information about factors that contribute to their lying habit.  This can also be useful for the therapist in determining the treatment goals and course of action. 

How to use the worksheet?

Instruct the client to observe their lying behaviour and fill out the table to determine what could be the potential triggers behind it. Instruct them to keep adding their observed information throughout the sessions. Events surrounding the lying behaviour can then be further probed in sessions.
