An Introduction to Underlying Concepts of Neuro-Linguistic Programming™
Those of us who teach Neuro-Linguistic Programming™ are often asked what its subject matter is. An accurate but rarely sufficient response is “the study of subjective experience”. While analyzing individual human experience objectively (i.e., in terms of independently verifiable data, much as the behaviorists have done), NLPTM renews attention to the subject, i.e., the experiencer. Focussing on observable sensory-specific concommitants of internal experiences, organizing the data into replicatable patterns, and testing the patterns noted for each subject, the clinician uses research methodology to assess a patient’s subjective experience. NLPTM thus allows the clinician all of the latitude possible with psychodynamic and psychoanalytic interventions but adds opportunities for remarkably greater precision in choosing and implementing them.
