F0.png Critical Q&A #94 February 5, 2017, Chris Shelton, Critical Thinker at Large

The weekly show where I answer questions from viewers left for me in the comments section of my Q&A videos or sent to me by email to AskChrisShelton@gmail.com. This week the questions I answer are:

(1) Surely there are people in Scientology who have experienced real trauma in their lives (sexual or physical abuse, loss of a loved one, etc). From what I have gathered so far Scientologists are taught to bottle up emotions from the "reactive mind," so how are these auditing sessions handled if a person is rightly becoming emotional from re-living these painful experiences?

(2) I have heard you mention the terms "Start, Stop, Change" in one of your Q&A videos. I have heard a similar term called "Start, Stop, Continue," both in business, and most noticeable, in some of my charity work. This is a way of promoting feedback within groups. People suggest things to "Start" doing, "Stop" doing, and "Continue" to do. Given Scientology's history of hiding their methods inside business and motivational training, was this "Start, Stop, Continue" method created by Scientology or Hubbard, or was it something adopted by Scientology from elsewhere?
