Don't leave cycles incomplete on a case.
If a C/S starts a 37R and the auditor goofs, correct the auditor and then get the 37R completed. Don't disperse and do something new.
If you have a program going and it's goofed, repair the auditor and the goofed pc and continue the program you began on the case.
Repair (Progress) Programs are ended when the pc is flying nicely. When a repair hits that, don't re-repair.
On Advance Programs, take each step to its EP. Don't suddenly start something new.
A sure way to solve a case is go back and find the earliest incomplete program, complete it and so on up to PT.
Keep your "finger in the book" on a case. Don't lose your place. That's done by having the current program on the inside front cover, paper clipped on, and checked off with each step done. When it's done, put a new program on top of it.
Insist that auditors keep up the inside front cover folder summary each session with their auditing time and admin time in the box. This FS is a 2 column set of boxes, date, what's run, F/N or bogged and time.
By seeing Admin is in you can keep your place in the book or study back rapidly to find what's been done.
The deadliest faults on cases are running the same action or grade twice. This drives TAs up through the roof.
Example: Power done in '65. Done again in '69!
Example: Grade IV done in '69, done in '70.
You find the case isn't doing well or find the error. In doubles, rehab by date of the first time it was done.
I've seen Interiorization done three times on one pc, Power twice and the same Dianetic Chains run over and over. And people wondered "Why is the TA high"!
So when you order a major action always check to see if it's ever been done before! Save you grief. And if a major action won't run, suspect it may have been done before.
Always set up a case fully for the next major action.
Don't overrepair. But be sure the case is not sick, has had good exam forms and does well.
Then C/S the next major action.
Never blame the pc. Many it is true are dog cases.
But even dog cases can be handled.
When you find auditors (or feel yourself) blaming the pc, get the overts and withholds run out.
Once I got the most splendid sessions out of an HGC. I had the auditor's overts and withholds checked on each auditor before he went into session. It was just research, but my it worked! Those were the smoothest sessions! Pcs began to fly!
Too many times one blames the pc only to find later that the auditor's TRs were ghastly and that a major action had been run twice. Such discoveries make a C/S out of a C/S.
