Videos and DVD on NLP

Videos produced by Lucas Derks (NL)

Personality in Mental Space
Personality is partly an unconscious spatial construction in which the general representation of time, the self and humanity are the key parts. This video shows how a trained psychologist can explore personality in mental space. A demonstration of highly technical psychotherapy shows a method to change personality traits by removing the limiting beliefs that block the change. Embodied Cognition, Social Cognition, NLP, Mental Space Psychology, Embodied Simulation.

    By Terrence McClendon, NLP LifeSets, California USA
    Research article that I wrote on behavioural modelling that original appeared in "The Journal of Experiential Psychotherapy".

  • Coaching: What is Coaching? - In search of a definition
    By Ueli R. Frischknecht, Switzerland
    Coaching - the trendy term, is used for all kinds of consulting formats. Thus, anyone working as a coach would do well to be able to offer a professional definition of the activity.
  • Coaching or Psychotherapy?
    Based on a work by the SICPNL societe international des coachs pnl this tool helps coaches to distinguish his/her action in regards to (psycho-)therapy.  It is also part of the professional tools of a coach to recognize the indications at which a psychotherapeutic approach should be recommended. This guide highlights the boundary between NLP coaching and psychotherapy.  It may also be useful for people wondering which support approach to pursue: “Should I consult a coach or a psychotherapist?”
  • Evaluating Students
    By Melody Cheal & Reb Veale, United Kingdom
    In NLP there is a vast range of evaluation methods and little to no consistency. The awarding of certifications is equally diverse. Some NLP providers undertake little or no evaluation while others have rigorous evaluation processes. The purpose of this paper is to provide a “map” detailing many of the evaluation methods currently used globally by NLP Institutes with some discussion of the benefits and drawbacks of each.
  • Evaluating Students
    By Terrence McClendon, NLP LifeSets, California USA
    Guide for student NLP Trainers. New NLP trainers can be overwhelmed with content. It can be easy to forget or overlook the key reason they are training. And that is too create competent NLP Practitioners. The assessment guide provides a format and step by step guidance of how trainers can  assess their students. I find it is  useful for supervision of trainers because it encourages them to give  accurate and accountable feedback and builds in good habits. It is good for the trainer  supervisor as well for the trainer in assessing their students. 
  • Open Space Conference

  • Taxonomies of Learning and Competence
    By Ueli R. Frischknecht, Switzerland
    NLP is an attitude and a methodology that leaves behind a trail of techniques. With a tremendous impact on 1:1 communications. But on 1:n communications (teams, groups, seminars) too! NLP Academy Switzerland has developed a taxonomy of learning and competence that focuses on Process Awareness, which is the core focus of NLP. Taxonomies of learning and competence are most valuable in assessing students progress and level of competence but in contracting coaching and trainings too.

  • Fomentar el asombro: una meta para la educación
    by Milly Epstein, Raanana (Israel)
    The article's topic is how to promote a wondering attitude as a way to improve learning in class. This article illustrates one of the basic statments of NLP, "the map is not the territory" by developing different forms to induce de-automatization in the manners we look at current phenomena in class. By connecting NLP insights with theories of creativity, I propose a way to reframe childs' questions as a part of an active, fresh learning environment.
  • Congruencia: una cualidad indispensable
    by Milly Epstein, Raanan (Israel)
    By being aware of the relation between feelings and our thougths, we could introduce more congruency and harmony in our communication. This paper proposes how to draw upon this key NLP concept in order to upgrade educational environment as well as every day life.
  • Tres preguntas que cambiarán el futuro
    by Milly Epstein, Raanan (Israel)

    This article exposes the use of three basic questions aiming to stimulate exploration and curiosity in class, by expanding one of the fundamental statement of NLP "the map is not the territory". The filters through which we perceive the world "distort" our perception of the world, so that the things and what we "understand" of them is mixed up.
    The following three questions help us to pay attention to the difference between our perception, our feelings and our thoughts:
    •  What do I see? What do I read? What do I hear? What do I touch?
    •  What do I feel against what I see / read / hear / touch?
    •  What surprises me? What awakes my curiosity?
    These questions help to transform each topic in any educational environment to an invitation for adventure.
  • Das Herz im NLP
    Book by Romina Schell, Bergisch Gladbach (Germany)
    Auf der Basis von Grundsätzen und Prinzipien von Virginia Satir erläutert Romina Schell wichtige Methoden für ein ganzheitliches Coaching und die eigene Selbstreflexion. „Romina bietet zahlreiche Selbstreflexions-Fragen und -Übungen in ihrem Buch an. Sie stellt darüber hinaus Prozesse bereit, die die Leser verwenden können, um eine Coachingsitzung vorzubereiten und um eine tiefere Beziehung und Rapport mit ihren Teilnehmern und Klienten zu fördern.“ - Robert Dilts

Brain Hacking Automation Tools

"Adam Goldman’s work is one of the most exciting developments in the application of NLP I’ve seen in years—and I don’t say that lightly.

Here’s why: He has taken a number of familiar patterns—phobia, swish, grief resolution, etc. and created programs that he calls “Brain Hacking Automation Tools”

People can use these online programs on their own to process a variety of common problems and outcomes, such as trauma, grief, troublesome internal dialogue, etc. No hard statistics yet, but there are already a significant number of reports of success." from Steve Andreas' NLP Blog

So people: Please test it out and let us at the IANLP know about your experience with the tool.
