To gain access to the assignment, complete the initial stage of colonizing Eos (A Better Beginning). Shock Therapy involves saving a group of workers who've attempted to deal with the Remnant infesting the area, an action which ended in a dangerous situation.

Find the work rosters

Once you've reached the area, fight off the incoming kett and find the communication device to listen to a radio conversation.
Get to the work crew
The end of the conversation will mark the beginning of a timed challenge. Your job will be to reach the crew before the Remnant manage to wipe them out. Board Nomad as fast as you can and use the main roads to reach the central tank. Once you're up there, proceed east through the desert. During your approach, switch to 2x6 drive and use afterburner as often as you can. If the road went without any major hiccups, you should reach your objective with 30-40 seconds of spare time.
Defeat the Remnant
Once you've reached the ambush area, leave Nomad and begin attacking the Remnant. It shouldn't be a tough battle, but exercise caution while attacking more advanced bots, such as nullifier or observer.
