Demonstrates how NLP should be used in therapy.
on June 8, 2000
In this book, Robert gives the reader a firm idea of how and when beliefs are formed and the true power that beliefs can have upon every aspect of a persons being. Throughout this book, I noticed myself thinking that I was receiving good information about beliefs but very little in the applications of NLP. This book is structured from basically a transcript of a seminar where the subjects were seemingly psychologists and serve hardly any true practical value for means of demonstration in how to allow someone to change their beliefs. What I mean by this is, his subjects immediately dropped into trance at will and used statments like, "I have an identity complex with..."...These are statements you're not going to hear from a typical patient. Many of the examples he used in changing peoples beliefs were very vague and you're still left wondering what to do with all the knowledge you've been given. Overall, this book focuses on beliefs and what they are and attempts to talk about changing them but does so poorly and NLP is only slightly used. I would recommend this book after you've read some of the much more useful books by John Grinder and Richard Bandler such as Trance Formations.
