Handbook for Preclears (December 1951): This book is a companion to Advanced Procedure and Axioms. Handbook for Preclears contains 15 Acts of self-processing that parallel the Fifteen Acts in APA. HFP contains explanations for such situations as why behavior patterns become fixed, why habits seemingly persist and why decisions made long ago have more apparent power than ones made in the present. Ron lays these out on the Chart of Attitudes that complements the Chart of Human Evaluation and outlines an ideal state of being. The processing actions are used in conjunction with the techniques from Self Analysis.
