Wubbolding (2000) telah memberikan contoh bagaimana proses merancang pelan tindakan dilakukan ke atas klien berdasarkan aspek SAMI2C3 sebagaimana dalam transkripsi berikut:
Kaunselor : Hal, you were saying that you wanted life to be better for yourself and you wanted your situation to be better at home and at school.
Klien : Yeah, I guess things could be better.
Kaunselor : How about making an effort to make things better?
Klien : I could try.
Kaunselor : What do you have to lose from trying?
Klien : Well, nothing really.
Kaunselor : What could you do differently at home?
Klien : I could do some of my chores. It really bugs my father when I don’t help out.
Kaunselor : What will you do that is different from what you did in the past?
Klien : I could pick up after myself before he comes home from work.
Kaunselor : What if you did that for a few days?
Klien : I could do it.
Kaunselor : Will you do it?
Klien : Yes.
Kaunselor : When will you start?
Klien : Today.
Kaunselor : What time? Be exact in setting a time.
Klien : Ok. I’ll pick up today at 4.00 p.m.
Kaunselor : How long will it take?
Klien : About 20 minutes.
Kaunselor : So, your plan i to clean up the house, pick up your clothes and other things for 20 minutes starting at 4.00 p.m. today. How many days will you do this?
Klien : I’ll do it every day for 5 days.
Kaunselor : Sounds good. One more questions. What impact will this have on your relationship with your father?
Klien : It can only help.
