Describe the value of cognitive rehearsal as an appropriate framework to use in addressing uncivil encounters.
Explain the effects of incivility and lateral violence on individuals, teams, and organizations.
Neither the planners nor the authors have any conflicts of interest to disclose. Dr. Clark has disclosed authorship of the book Creating and Sustaining Civility in Nursing Education.
Ten years ago, Griffin wrote an article on the use of cognitive rehearsal as a shield for lateral violence. Since then, cognitive rehearsal has been used successfully in several studies as an evidence-based strategy to address uncivil and bullying behaviors in nursing. In the original study, 26 newly licensed nurses learned about lateral violence and used cognitive rehearsal techniques as an intervention for nurse-to-nurse incivility. The newly licensed nurses described using the rehearsed strategies as difficult, yet successful in reducing or eliminating incivility and lateral violence. This article updates the literature on cognitive rehearsal and reviews the use of cognitive rehearsal as an evidence-based strategy to address incivility and bullying behaviors in nursing.
