The Resolution Loop

The fundamental action we do in processing is that we activate an area with a potential for change, and then we resolve it. Another way of saying it is that first we find an issue to work on and then we work on it.

The facilitator does two major actions:

1. Activate issues
2. Resolve the issues that are activated

That is really the simplicity of what we do. All other actions are a sub-division of those two actions. The only more fundamental subject would be the reasons for doing processing.

By Activate we mean to focus on, to bring up, to energize the non-optimum aspects of an area. If the client is looking at it and realizing that something needs improvement, then the area is activated. If the client isn't aware of the area, or nothing springs to mind about it, then it isn't activated.

If the client already has an active subject that she has attention on, then action 1 is unnecessary and we go straight to action 2, dealing with what is there. It is usually more beneficial to work on what is already active with the client. Typically that is how we will start off: resolving the issues that are already live.

As more and more of the client's issues in life get resolved the facilitator might have to do more and more of action 1. That is, if the client doesn't come up with areas to resolve, then the facilitator will come up with them. She can do that based on what she notices about the client or she can follow a program of common general issues.

- Make a list of people you know. Put a '2' next to the people who already have stuff in activation, and put a '1' next to the people who would need to have something activated first.
