B.1. Basic Method is One-to-One

The basic method of communicating Re-evaluation Counseling (RC) is one person to one person (one-to-one). We are encouraged to teach someone we would be delighted to have as our Co-Counselor. We can do this by Co-Counseling with this person, answering questions, and offering information between sessions. New people learn Co-Counseling by participating in it.

All other methods of communicating to prospective Co-Counselors are to support this one-to-one method. This includes all literature, lectures, classes, workshops, audio-recordings, videos, and the RC websites: reevaluationcounseling.org and rc.org.[26]

It is best that the Internet not be the main source of information about RC for new people. Co-Counselors teaching RC can actively offer one-to-one experience with and act as a source of accurate information about RC. This gives people a full and clear picture of RC instead of what they may find online.

Co-Counselors are also encouraged to include a hyperlink to one of our public-facing RC websites[27] (or part of one of the RC websites that they think would be useful) in communications about RC events or in casual communications by email. 


Many people are interested in and curious about the tool of Co-Counseling and it has been useful to many people and groups. After learning RC and finding it useful, many people want to share it with others.

One-to-one is the basic and best method of communicating important ideas. It is much easier to hear and consider the ideas of RC, which may sharply contradict our fears, prejudices, and other rigidities, if we hear them from someone we already like and have a connection with. Nearly all of our present Co-Counselors became seriously interested in Co-Counseling after experiencing discharge and re-evaluation themselves. Giving people the opportunity to discharge is an effective way to share RC widely.  In this way, Co-Counselors who are not yet ready to teach classes can communicate their knowledge of RC to others.

In recent years, our society has turned to the Internet as a primary source of information. Prospective Co-Counselors will search for information about RC online. The minimal effort of including a link, thereby guiding people’s online research toward RC’s public-facing websites, will provide accurate information about RC to those looking for us online.

Every Co-Counselor can offer RC to new people and will benefit from doing so.

[26] The RC Community website, rc.org, serves the RC Community. The “New-to-RC” website, reevaluationcounseling.org, provides well-organized introductory information about RC. The RC Community also has individual websites for our projects: “United to End Racism” (UER) unitedtoendracism.org, “No Limits for Women” (No Limits) nolimitsforwomen.net, “Sustaining All Life” (SAL) sustainingalllife.org, and “Jews and Allies United to End Anti-Semitism” jewsandallies.org.
