Update to Topic 6

Early hurtful experiences form the core of distress recordings. Discharging on the early and earliest memories connected with a present-day upset will give the client better perspective on the present situation and help the client more rapidly free him or herself from distress recordings.  

Restimulated early distress recordings often feel “real.” They feel like they are caused by a current situation. Discharging sufficiently on the restimulated early hurt will “unhook” the present day incident from the load of past distressed feelings. The client re-evaluates and is no longer confused by the hurt.

The counselor directs the client to the early hurts. It is necessary to persist because the painful feelings may seem too difficult for the client to face.

Update to Topic 7

Scorning fear—The client contradicts the fear by looking directly at it and treating it with contempt, with amusement, with no respect whatsoever.

Update to Topic 23

RC Geographic structure:

Developing Communities—Co-Counselors in any one geographical location cooperate with each other, stay in contact with the International RC Community, and form a leaders’ group as they grow. (The RC Community Guidelines, D.4)
