In Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) there is an important distinction between the deep and surface structure. This distinction is so important that even the biggest critics of NLP still rate NLP well for using this distinction. This distinction shows that there is a difference between what we say and what we are talking about. A lot of communication problems arise because people have no regard for this distinction. One thinks one has said something because they have talked about it when one has actually said something else. Many arguments in relationships, families and organisations come from here. Hence, understanding this distinction right away ensures that you will communicate better.
In this session you learn more about how to help addicts overcome their addiction with Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). Helping addicts with NLP is a good idea, because addicts often have significant emotional problems in addition to their addiction. Often their addiction stems from an attempt to no longer need to feel the negative emotions.
One of the most controversial topics within NLP is personality. The Neurogram® is a system for personality typing in line with the core teachings of NLP. This means that it is only about behaviour. Basically, there are nine sets of behaviours; NLPfied through NLP strategies, and it is highly probable that one of those sets of behaviour fits your behaviour much better than the other eight. In fact it is more of a matter of discovering that within the other eight sets of behaviours there is some behaviour that in your mind is simply so outrageous that you definitely wouldn’t do something like that. There is no need to recognise all of your own behaviours in the set that befits you the best.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is best known for how you solve all kinds of psychological problems. Whether it’s to help with stress, anger, sadness, fear or many problems like burnout, depression or anxiety. NLP works perfectly and quickly to effectively solve these problems with many people. In recent years Licensed NLP Trainer™ Joost van der Leij has done much statistical research on how well NLP works in this area. And guess what? With people who had in the last 1,000 days, on average, more than 800 problem days, 80.3% are able to halve the number of problem days within a few weeks working with NLP.
