Suggested readings / research


Need to research key factors of COPE.

  • Facilitation:
    • Raccoon Circles: using webbing to tie rings ("circles"). Book can be downloaded for free.
  • Relationship building, bringing out the best in others
    • Stanley Stolpe suggests "Mirror, Echo, Touch".
      • Technique he had learned for establishing relationship with drug abusers
        • Mirror the sufferer; show the sufferer the good person you see before you
        • Echo what they are saying (not parroting, but demonstrate careful listening with non-judgmental response)
        • Touch the sufferer; shoulder, upper arm; shake hands with your palm up, and coverer gently with other hand
      • Not finding anything relevant with Google search on the three words
  • Competing with professional marketing (Dragonfly Effect)
