What to do after you’ve done a Snapshot

Doing a Snapshot is just the first step in the Motional Process. Find out here what you could/should do next.

After you’ve taken a Snapshot, you’ll get a results page which shows you how active (or under/over-active) each of the 11 systems are.

This is useful information by itself in terms of getting a ‘whole-brain’ picture if what’s happening in both the lower brain’s emotional systems, and the upper brain’s executive functioning skills. But that’s not the end of it – we can do so much more!

Create a Program

Using the scores from this Snapshot we can produce a Program tailored exactly for this person’s needs at this time. After focussing on the RELATE suggestions and doing activities from this Program for a while, you can then either create a new Program from the same Snapshot, or better yet take a new Snapshot (this isn’t a situation where you’d edit a Snapshot).

To decide whether you should do another Program or start a new Snapshot, think about it like this: if it’s been more than a few months since the Snapshot, then do another Snapshot. This is because we want to see the change that has happened as a result of the Program.
