(from the discontinued RET Forum)
When you see a client “regress” (exhibiting the same behavior they say they want to change), you might consider using a different RET process with them – maybe focusing more on the “recreate” part of every process.
It’s also possible that each instance or aspect of their issue might appear so similar in behavior and nature that you might not notice their subtle differences. Although somewhat frustrating for both client and technician, such apparent regressions are actually progress – so long as you ADDRESS each incident/aspect differently enough with the variety of RET processes at your disposal – and complete each session with RET closing processes.
The range of differences in sessions and clients is virtually infinite – you’ll never get bored doing RET as every session is different from any other session – and every client different from every other client. What fun!!!
