Understanding How to Apply the Technology of Scientology

This is perhaps an oversimplification, but it gives a starting point
to new auditors who are only clued into whatever they have studied so
far. That may be books or some basic auditing courses.

Elementary, my dear Watson

Essentially there are two types of cases, easy cases and resistive

Easy cases, needless to say, are easy to handle. It won’t really
matter on an easy case, which of the many bridges* you decide to
apply. If they get the Grades first, that will be fine. If they get
Dianetics first, that will be fine. The easy case makes gains, and
they continue up any given bridge with the greatest of ease. Your
only job is to keep them moving on whichever bridge you choose, and
to audit with the Auditor’s Code in.

Resistive cases take special handling. Remember it is the case that
resists, not the preclear. And it is not that difficult, because
there are a limited number of subjects that can bring about a
resistive case. Most of those are on a “special cases” list, with
instructions on how to handle. You do need to be a Class III* auditor
and a NED auditor to handle the special cases assessment list.

The other things that can make a resistive case are missing grades.
It is difficult to handle a case, for example, who can’t talk to

Determining—Easy Case or Resistive Case?

If you are new to auditing others, you certainly want to start with
an easy case! You will get wins and your pc will flourish. If you
must start with a resistive-type case, then make sure you are a Class
III auditor and have a Class VIII case supervisor.

With that advice now stated, an easy case can run engrams.* Assuming
the person knows what the word “engram” is you can have the pc close
his eyes, and, first book style, tell him that when you snap your
fingers the file clerk* will present the engram necessary to resolve
the case…SNAP…ok, what year is it? SNAP…and move the somatic strip*
through the incident until it erases, or run earlier similar engram
if necessary.

After a few passes through the pc is smiling and happy and tells you
what he has discovered, and how that changes his life! Easy case!

Compare this to a pc who has an engram, and you run it through time
and again, there is no earlier incident, there is no earlier
beginning to the incident, and ninety five times through and the pc
hasn’t moved on the tone scale. That is hasn’t hit low emotional
points, then higher emotional points…pc is still interested—just
nothing happening. Resistive case. Solution: Turn this case over
to a Class VIII c/s for repair and he/she will program to handle the

Other Ways to Recognize a Resistive Case

I repeat, it is not the pc’s fault that he has a resistive case. It
takes a lot of patience and skilled auditing to handle such a case.
Get yourself trained as a Class III and NED auditor.

You can sometimes recognize when you have a case that would resist
just by knowing a bit of the pre-clear’s history. Most common, did
he take drugs? Drugs make a resistive case, especially street
drugs. There is a program called the Purification Rundown, followed
by objective process (outward processes, like “Look at that wall” as
compared to subjective processes like “recall a time you saw a wall”)
followed by what is called the “Drug Rundown.” A NED auditor can
give a Drug Rundown.

So you ask your potential preclear “Did you take street drugs?” If
yes, chances are his case will start resisting as you try to audit
it, if you audit it on anything else but drug engrams. As a new
auditor, you don’t want to set yourself up for failures and then
believe that the tech doesn’t work. The tech always works, but you
have to use the correct tech for the correct type of case.

It isn’t that much different from fixing a car—do you need a
screwdriver, or a hoist to lift the engine out? Use the correct tool
for the right problem area. A Case Supervisor gets the data so that
he/she can determine the right problem area so the correct process
(tool) can be used.

What Can a New Auditor Do?

The safest route for you as a new auditor and your preclear to take
is to work with a book such as Self Analysis. Both the auditor and
the pc read the book, especially the part that describes what you
will be doing. It starts with “List One”. Chances are if your
preclear runs well on Self Analysis he/she is an easy case.

What is running well? Pc is interested in at least most of the
questions, finds incidents easily, likes to share the experience with
the auditor, brightens up from time to time. Likes the auditing and
wants to do more.

Another book to use when working with a new preclear is Handbook for
Preclears. Both the auditor and preclear should read the book before
doing any of the questions or commands, so there is an agreement on
what they are doing. Handbook for Preclears is a very powerful book
and anyone who can do what the books says to do is certainly an “easy

These books take some of the charge off the case, and can make
running Dianetics, the Modern Science of Mental Health a lot easier
to do.



Bridge: Short for “Classification and Gradation Chart.” There are
two sides to the bridge, one for auditors in training, and one side
for the preclear so he can move into higher states of being step-by-

Class III: A Class 0 is a beginning auditor; a Class III has learned
how to do many things a Class 0 isn’t trained to do. Class VIII is
an auditor who is very highly trained.

Engram: An incident of pain and/or unconsciousness, that contains
impact or injury. It often contains command value, such as “stay
right here” which keeps the preclear in the incident, or “get out of
here” which bounces the preclear out of the engram.

File Clerk: Term used in Dianetics, the Modern Science of Mental
Health to help the new auditor handle the mind of the preclear.

Somatic Strip: Term used in Dianetics, the Modern Science of Mental
Health to help the new auditor handle the mind of the preclear.
