Protocols are less effective and can be counter-productive when used
outside of established groups or are led by people who are not trained. Please be aware that their use outside of an

We'd also like to encourage people who use a wide range of protocols often to consider
purchasing a CD-ROM of the entire collection of NSRF Protocols for only $10 plus shipping.

simply and quickly without an internet connection or
the time and effort to download.
