Neurolinguistic programming

Posted by plebius

"NLP is an attitude and a methodology that leaves behind a trail of techniques." Richard Bandler

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a branch of cognitive and behavioral psychology whose primary concern is to model behavior and cognition. It was developed in the 1970's by Richard Bandler and John Grinder from their work in modeling. They initially modelled family therapist Virginia Satir, Gestalt therapist Fritz Perls, hypnotherapist Milton H. Erickson and Gregory Bateson. They derived much of the theory behind their work from Korzybski's General Semantics and Chomsky's Transformational Generative Grammar. Bandler describes NLP as the "study of the structure of subjective experience." At times it has also been called the study of things that work.

Although NLP started in the field of therapy, it has now been expanded to include such diverse topics as sales, persuasion and even seduction (ladies beware).
