3.2.1.2. Do pre-screening 1-on-1 sessions with each participant.

3.2.1.2.1. At least one - more if needed. You have to know who you are dealing with in the FC regarding:

3.2.1.2.2. Include at least one of the 1-on-1 sessions in the price of the FC as it is an integral part and should not be seen as separate.

3.2.1.3. Do the actual FC Session

3.2.1.4. Perform 1-on-1 or at least group follow-ups.

3.2.2. A good FC session will trigger significant processing. Hence there needs to be infrastructure in place for clients to get the emotional stabilization they need after the FC session.
