Step 2 - W5 Questions!
    After visualization, where we have reconstructed the whole event, we start our investigation objectively to collect factual and figurative data. Gathered information, timing, and their relationship will be used as a foundation for our analyzes.

  What happened?
    The next step is to describe the nature of an incident without any emotional involvement exactly the way we observed or remember it.

  When did it happen?
    There are different benchmarks to time an event: it can be a date (day, time, year), related (before, during, after) to a ceremony or another event, or simply connected to a stage in our life (mental, intellectual, spiritual, physical), and we must collect as much information as we can without jumping to a conclusion.

  Where did it happen?
    The location of the incident has to be stated because in some cases it can create an Anchor in connection with other elements.

  Why did it happen?
    We must state what we believe to be the reasons that the incident has happened, regardless of whether it is true or false.

  Who were involved?
    We must try to remember whether we were alone or not, and if not, who were present at the time and place of the event.

  Which part of your life was affected as a result of this event?
    We just write down what we think of the effect of that incident in our life without getting caught up in the “IF” factor, such as “if that hadn't happened I would be …”

  How did that make you feel?
    We acknowledge the emotional feeling that we had at the time and shortly after the incident.
