Positioning NLP for Increased Recognition, Rich Liotta
The advantages of framing NLP as being within the context of a “Full Spectrum CognitiveBehavioral Therapy” will be discussed. To position NLP for future research and recognition people need to know how NLP fits into established science before they can appreciate the unique contributions it offers.
Toward that end an organizational schema will be presented examining where and how NLP and Neuro-Semantics (NS) expand upon the typical focus of cognitive behavioral models. Cognitive-Behavioral therapy and coaching approaches tend to be limited in there scope, given the structure of human cognition. NLP and NS techniques intervene to modify human cognition, and thus behavior and emotions, in areas that are under addressed (when addressed at all) by traditional approaches. By integrating the focus of NLP and NS into the spectrum of cognitive-behavioral approaches the full expanse of cognition can be addressed.
The relevance of this model to positioning NLP for greater acceptance and recognition by professionals utilizing other cognitive approaches will be discussed. This is a "pace" and "lead" approach to assist in how we communicate what we do to others. The presentation will also help NLP practitioners think differently about what they do by placing what we do in the context of cognitive science.Rich Liotta, Ph.D. is a Psychologist in private practice in the
Adirondack region ofupstate New York. Additionally, as a Certified Trainer of NLP, Neuro-Semantics, & Ericksonian Hypnosis. Rich was introduced to NLP by a very excited cognitivepsychology professor while in graduate school in 1983. Immediately NLP becamepart of Rich’s map for understanding how people change. In the late 1990’s he pursued more training in NLP. When he heard about the NLP Research & Recognition Project and connected with
Frank Bourke he was inspired by the mission of researching NLP and getting the word out about the value of NLP to the broader professional community.
Since 2008 Rich has worked closely with Frank Bourke on the NLP R&R Project, in the areas of web-site development, organizational communication, fund raising, and the efforts of the research committee. Co-authoring an article with Richard Gray (PTSD: Extinction, Reconsolidation and the Visual- Kinesthetic Dissociation Protocol) and having this accepted for publication in the professional journal Traumatology was a major accomplishment. He has also presented
on the importance of the NLP R&R Project at NLP conferences and to Neuro-Semantics trainers. As a psychologist and trainer he frames NLP as being within the context of a “Full Spectrum Cognitive Therapy,” noting that people need to know how NLP fits into established science before they can appreciate the unique contributions it offers.
