The resource map
The rationale for creating the Resource Map consists of the following: (1) A structured format and record of the resources that have been identified and installed that can be collected and used again in the future; (2) Multiple resources that empower the client; (3) Level of Connection (LoC) scale, which is designed to overcome the limitations of trying to guess if the installation is working from qualitative signals. It is inspired by the validity of cognition (VoC) and attempts to better gauge progress in nonverbal domains; and (4) Extension of the Absorption Technique—which itself is basically an expanded Resource Installation—with some other additions.
