This workshop covers both the Resilience Section and the General TIR Section of the Ability Enhancement viewing curriculum. Any lack of ability to communicate, to resolve problems, or to proceed through life without committing misdeeds against self or others is bound to affect a person’s resilience and to lead to upsets. When these areas are substantially discharged, the viewer can productively address past upsets and the subject of change.
We address acute upsets when they show up at the start of a session because no progress will be made in the session over the top of an upset. Chronically upsetting situations are addressed in Life Stress Reduction. The Resilience Section goes deeper to address all aspects of change and upsets, not only because resistance to change can impede case progress but also, since life itself is full of change, general resistance to change tends to make life unpleasant and difficult. Here we address major upsets which have changed the course of the viewer’s life; we also exercise their ability to deal with change. Enhanced ability to resolve upsets and to tolerate and even welcome change, makes life more livable and enjoyable.
In Life Stress Reduction, the viewer addressed traumatic incidents that were then currently reactivated. Ability Enhancement work often causes other traumatic incidents to come into view, as layers of charge are peeled off. As they emerge, they are taken up and resolved. Once the Resilience Section is completed, we take a good look at past traumas that may not have been addressed to this point, and also at any unwanted feelings, sensations, emotions, attitudes, and pains that have not yet been addressed. The work done during Ability Enhancement allows the viewer to view traumatic incidents that had not been accessible before. Completion of this section brings about a feeling of comfort and well-being.

- Use the technique of Selection, allowing a viewer to pinpoint and work with core assumptions
- Facilitate the techniques of the Resilience Section
- Discover and handle previously unrecognized traumas
- Explain the theory of resilience
- Demonstrate the relationship between change and upsets
- Discuss the theory of mental processing and why Selection works
- Selection, a rapid and powerful technique
- Theory of the mental process of Selection
- Rules and techniques of Selection
- Resilience and Change
