Basic Objective Processes - Objective Assists Information and Downloads


About these Assists

The objective assists processes on this page are compiled and excerpted from a study of the Briefing Course materials. They are intended as a "fair use" supplement to an on-line discussion group.

The first group, Objective Assists, consists of 39 objective processes excerpted from the works of L. Ron Hubbard. These are availabe as they are easy to run as well as helpful. There are many other assists that are not objective in nature -- these are summarized on the Full Assist Checklist for Illness and Injury or other introductory and demo assist packs. The manuals include a Table of Contents listed by process type, tapes and bulletins referenced, and is indexed.

I have edited the material slightly, replacing uncommon terms with English words where possible (e.g., end point for end phenomena, person for preclear, and so on.)

The psychotic (a person who does not have enough attention in present time to be able to act rationally) appears to be in such desperate straits that the processor often errs in thinking desperate measures are necessary. Use the lightest possible methods. Give case space and freedom where possible. Get him to tell the difference between things by actual touch. Have him locate, differentiate, and touch things that are really real to him (real objects or items). If inaccessible, mimic him with own body, whatever he does, until he comes into communication.


Step 1: Get him to tell the difference between things by actual touch. Ask him to touch as object in the room. When he has done that, ask him to touch another object in the room. Then ask him to tell you the difference between those two objects. Run this step until flat.

Step 2: Have him locate, differentiate and touch things that real reallly real to him (real objects or items).

"Find something that is really real to you in this room."
"Thank you."
"Walk over to it and touch it."
"Thank you."
Run this step until flat.

End Point

Run the process until a realization occurs, or an ability is regained.


Work him for very brief periods, for his attention span is short. Always work psychotics with another processor or companion present.

In the interest of getting the assists known and broadly used, I am making the assists available as a zipped text file. This zipped text file contains no formatting, no table of contents, or index. The file is also available for download in zipped Word97 format, but you will have to press F9 to update the Contents and Index page references after you set your desired page size.

I will be putting the entire set of these notes on the objectives on the web but have not finished. There will be links to articles on objectives as well. The index to the objectives is here.
