When therapists are thinking about what interventions they want to implement, searching for the perfect question, or just wanting to say what they have in mind, then they are subject to missing what the client is saying. The next-in- line effect (Brenner, 1973; Bond, 1985) has shown that when people are next in line they may miss cues or fail to encode. Using the next in line effect as a teaching demonstration to reveal the effects of the phenomenon have been implemented (Desforges, 2007). The purpose of the current teaching demonstration is to highlight the application of the effect for student therapists.
