Simpson, Steven et. all. The Processing Pinnacle: An Educator's Guide to Better Processing. Bethany, OK: Wood 'N' Barnes, 2012.
Easy to implement and conversational in tone, The Processing Pinnacle contains valuable guidance for anyone who teaches or facilitates experientially. The authors offer a theoretical approach to more effective processing, the reflective component of experience. Utilizing the metaphor of the mountain, they demonstrate how and when certain facilitator methods may elicit immediate response and make a lasting impression on the individual, encouraging reflection as a personal response to life experience.
