I have been thinking about the process of giving feedback to clients about
their grids, wondering if the subject has been addressed in the literature
and how listmembers approach it. I find it somewhat challenging to
translate the abstractions of grids (a factor analysis, say) into terms
that have some immediate impact for the client and lead to reconstruing.
Sometimes I've found it quite effective, other times the response is more
like, "yeah, that makes" (though none have put it quite that
bluntly.) What approaches have people found that give such feedback
experiential immediacy rather than just being fodder for
