Level 4 Assessment
1. Tell the client (also referred to as the person or
"We are going to assess a list of goals. I want you to briefly comment on each. Just express your first thought or reaction to the goal."
2. "When you have expressed your thoughts and reaction, I also want you to give each goal a number value to determine which one is the most charged and interesting to you and should be taken up first.
We use a scale from 0-10. 0 means there is no charge or bad experiences connected with it. 10 means it is very charged and bothers you often or all the time. The 1-9 are the steps in between the extremes."
3. You assess the list and note down the person's comments and emotional reactions.
4. Once you are through the list, you tell the person: "I have the goal "to XYZ" as the most charged, does that seem correct to you?"
Note: You may have several goals with the same rating. In this case you ask the person which one seems the most charged.
If the person can't tell for sure, take the one that would have more experience connected to it. It could be a goal that alligns with the person's profession, a relationship or long interest. It would be the goal with the most experience connected to it.
Since you eventually will take up all the goals that are charged the order is not cruxial. You may simply inform the person that all charged goals will be taken up, one after the other.
* You can also simply ask the person which of these goals (with the same highest number) seems more interesting to work on.
basic goals listed in the TROM materials
"We are going through the list of basic goals to find the most charged and interesting one to work on first."
to Know, to Love, to Admire, to Enhance, to Help, to Feel, to Control, to Own, to Have, to Free, to Eat, to Sex (as a verb = to have sex), to Reason, to See, to Hear, to Touch, to Smell, to Taste.
Basic list with two sides listed (receiving/giving or opposites)
to Know, to not know, to Love, to be loved, to Admire, to be admired, to Enhance something, to be enhanced, to Help, to be helped, to Feel, to be felt, to Control, to be controlled, to Own, to be owned, to Have, to not have, to Free something, to be freed, to Eat, to be eaten, (to Sex (as a verb = to have sex), to pursue sex, to be pursued sexually, to Reason, to not reason, to See, to be seen, to Hear, to be heard, to Touch, to be touched, to Smell, to be smelt, to Taste, to be tasted.
(There are simply 2 questions per goal to catch the charged goals. A person may have the goal to be admired, while the other side, to admire others seems of little interest. You simply take up the side that seems most relevant and of interest to the person.)
Here is an experimental list of goals. The intent is to make a relative short list that covers the basics. Once that is handled, a longer list can be used as to cover all possible aspects of the case. But remember, it does more good to spend the bulk of the time on a few central goals of the case than trying to cover all aspects and do a brush off job on each of the many goals.
to know, to help, to control, to communicate, to listen, to learn, to love, to admire, to confront, to own, to have, to survive, to thrive, to be happy, to reason, to think, to feel, to watch, to work, to act, to create, to build, to beautify, to grow (plants), to eat, to drink, to sex, to give, to receive, to support, to be supported, to judge, to evaluate, to organize, to make money, to defend, to heal, to dream, to charm, to please, to worship.
Note: One can also tailor make a list to a specific person. It would be based on the person's current and past professions and main interests and activities in life. There may also be known buttons or weaknesses in the person that would fit certain goals and purposes.
One would make a more detailed list covering the specific areas around the person's track record. Of course, if the practitioner has an intimate knowledge of the person's case, he may be able to assess a shortlist of goals and buttons.
5. Once a goal is found, discuss the
goal briefly as to have the person define it in his/her own words. Then ask the
person, "what would be the best wording for you of that goal?"
(make sure the person stays with the same life goal and doesn't make it too narrow in time and place.)
6, Then the next step is to go to the
Classes of Overwhelms and find which type of overwhelm it is active on.
Go to section 2
Here is a long list, and we will even make it longer. The idea is, that the person reads it through and finds something that catches his/her interest and then handles it solo.

or resolution in the area. Here is a "Top
