  3. 3. Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is an approach to communication, personal development, and psychotherapy created by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in California, United States in the 1970s. Its creators claim a connection between the neurological processes ("neuro"), language ("linguistic") and behavioral patterns learned through experience ("programming") and that these can be changed to achieve specific goals in life. Wikipedia, 18/08/2014
  4. 4. Definition #01: Neuro Linguistic Programming Definition #02: NLP is an attitude and a methodology that leaves behind a trail of techniques (Richard Bandler) Definition #03: NLP is a Science and an Art of communication and excellence. Definition #04: “The study of the structure of our subjective experience and what can be calculated from it.”
  5. 5. “The Problems of Today Were Created by The Thinking of Yesterday”
  6. 6. Hypnosis is a psychological state with physiological attributes superficially resembling sleep and marked by an individual's level of awareness other than the ordinary conscious state. Another description of the phenomenon is that of an altered mental state, while another links it to imaginative role- enactment Wikipedia, 18/08/2014
  7. 7. Definition #01: Hypnosis is largely a question of your willingness to be receptive and responsive to ideas, and to allow these ideas to act upon you without interference. Theses ideas we call suggestions. (Weitzenhoffer,AM & Hilgard,ER, 1959 ) Definition #02: Hypnosis is a state of intensified attention and receptiveness to an idea or to a set of ideas. (Erickson, MH, 1967) Definition #03: Hypnosis is a particular alterted state of selective hypersuggestibility brought about in an individual by the use of a combination of relaxation, fixation of attention and suggestion (Ansari, M, 2006) Definition #04: Hypnosis is a process which produces relaxation, distraction of the conscious mind, heightened suggestibility and increased awareness, allowing access to the subconscious mind through the imagination. It also produces the ability to experience thoughts and images as real. (Krasner, AM, 2002)

  22. 22. Control Group - 27.3% successful ECV Hypnosis prior to ECV - 40.5% successful ECV NLP prior to ECV - 44.7% successful ECV These findings suggest that prior clinical hypnosis and NLP have similar success rates of ECV procedures and are both superior to standard medical care alone
