Memory Reconsolidation

As discussed in the previous post, the aim is to start with the techniques that least challenge existing schema, and then work up the hierarchy to techniques that more strongly challenge the existing schema.

Experience involves simply sitting with the schema as it is, and seeing if change comes from prolonged viewing of the schema.

Question involves posing questions about the schema, to draw attention to ways that it may be wrong.

Challenge involves directly providing counters to the schema, and seeing how it reacts.

Dissonance involves holding both the counter to the schema and the schema itself at once.

Change involves attempting to directly change how you represent the schema to take your counter into account.
