There are always a million reasons why the tech didn't work, and it's never the tech doesn't work, the auditor (or PC) did something wrong.Hey Pineapple, nice post! I was off ESMB 2 for awhile, probably for the best for me and everyone!
When I got in around 1990, the message was very clear - No drugs, and previous psych treatment was "right out," as a Python would say.
I bought the company line on both circumstances.
I saw recipients of shock treatment and how they had seemingly been affected, although I hadn't known them before so really didn't know the effects of the treatment vs what they were like before. The ones that I knew had to petition, and do training until their checksheets were raw and red. never saw anyone from that group make it.
I was supervising when a new student called me over for a question. With a glazed look on her face, she asked me what scn thought of librium, since she was currently on it. My first thought was "Div 6 dropped the ball once again!" and routed her to ethics and never saw her again.
I was apprenticing a new supervisor. She came to me on a busy night and said "I just did 2wc with that div6 student, and he crack just before course." We were always trying to find the why on no case change, etc., and it was so easy to find.
It seems there are more excuses for tech failure than weeds in my pasture.
I wonder why that would be????
Oh, and did anyone ever, ever get Remedy A or Remedy B???
The book of case remedies was for another religion, wasn't it?
I have seen Remedy A & B done, not that common but I have heard of it happening. Many of the remedies in book of case remedies are standard handlings and get used often, but when a tech person is trying to debug a PC they'll look to HCOBs. My understanding is that the book of case remedies is basically a compilation, auditors and C/Ses would look to the actual reference.
