Proactive active Peter
Views as a challenge to overcome. Can-do attitude
Will diligently follow a regimen that will have minimal negative side effects. Likes idea of digital Tx. Might already be a fan of holistic wellness.
Hates dealing with disease; disease keeps him from being active. Never thought of self as somebody who could have the disease
Quick resolution of disease. Wants to feel in control of own health.
Cannot stand living with the disease, heavy emotional burden
Desperately willing to try anything new. Has tried many therapies, have been ineffective or she is unwilling to deal with side effects.
Losing hope that she will get better
Literally anything that might help her get better. Sense of empowerment.
Accepts that disease is impacting quality of life, and she needs to recover
Somewhat skeptical of digital tx, thought pills would be easier, but trusts her doctor’s decision
Low quality of life affecting herself and others around her. New therapy sounds too good to be true.
Validation that treatment is working. Reminders and/or motivation to continue therapy if not.
Newly diagnosed, has difficulty coming to terms with disease
Dislikes needing intervention. Skeptical of Digital Tx, thinks traditional pharma might be more effective but doesn’t want to deal with side effects
Deteriorating health is becoming undeniable and bigger emotional burden. Digital Therapy might be useless.
Healthy emotional processing. Assurance that he is not wasting his time.
