NLP Research and Recognition Project Update: Dr. Frank Bourke, Rich Liotta, Rick Gray
Since the last IASH meeting there have been many developments with the NLP Research & Recognition Project. This update will let you know the exciting accomplishments that have been made and outline the future directions of the project.
About Frank Bourke: Frank first encountered NLP in the mid-70s after 15 years of studies in psychology including a Ph.D. at the Institute of Psychiatry in London. Shortly thereafter he became convinced that NLP was the largest advance in psychotherapy in the previous 50 years. He taught at Cornell for several years, but the academic leadership at Cornell University didn’t believe he could continue in a serious academic career and be associated with NLP. He left to practice and grow his skills with NLP techniques becoming an essential part of his clinical skill set.
Two occurrences brought Frank back to NLP and to founding of the NLP Research and Recognition Project. The first was nine months clinical work with 850 World Trade Center survivors after 9/11 when he found his NLP-derived protocols could eradicate the incapacitating symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder in 2 to 4 hours. The second was his own terminally-diagnosed case of cancer, in which he used his NLP tools for a year and a half to deal with the
pain and produce a daily physiological state, which in Chinese medicine is called an inner smile. He recovered and decided for whatever time was left to him to try and bring “the largest advance in psychotherapy” into widespread recognition and practice. The NLP Research & Recognition Project aims to support, coordinate, and fund rigorous scientific research in NLP.
