Shock moment handling

April 20, 2003 on R3X Course

Sometimes an incident contains a moment of heavy shock that doesn't resolve readily with other processing. It can be handled with this rundown.

The shock moment handling is simple. It's done with Multiple Viewpoint Dianetic Processing as applied to the shock. It's done only after all the other handling on the incident, as previously outlined, has been completed.

1. First the Pc is asked if there is a moment of shock. If there is one, then the next steps apply. If there's more than one, the initial one is the most important and should be taken up first (unless unusual circumstances dictate otherwise).

2. The Before/After process ("Spot a moment before the shock" "Spot a moment after the shock" done 1,2,1,2..) can be done on the shock in order to open it up and make it more accessible.

3. The Six-Direction process can be run on it to lighten the charge.

4. Next the Pc is given the command: "Move through that moment of shock from beginning to end" repetitive to flat point.

5. The Pc is then asked to name the relevant other viewpoints (persons involved) in the incident.

6. The Pc is then asked to assume the viewpoint of the first person and given the command "from the viewpoint of ...(person's name)...move through that moment of shock from beginning to end" repetitively until flat.

7. The same is done with each of the other relevant viewpoints in the incident (perpetrators, helpers, onlookers, etc.). Some need to be taken singly while others can be grouped together.

8. I then have the Pc take a pan-determined viewpoint and run the incident from that perspective.

9. Check if there are any later shocks that are relevant and run those too if necessary. Usually running the initial shock is sufficient.

That is normally enough to take care of any shock in an incident. Shocks persist because of confusion of ownership. The above process is aimed at sorting that out.

Havingness as well as all the other auditing basics still apply.
