Over the years NLP has become utilized in a myriad of contexts in order to achieve a specific result. Unfortunately there have been some instances where combined approaches have resulted in confusion and undesirable affects. For example, if an NLP technique used for business has been applied in a therapeutic context, it will not have the desired effect and has led to question the efficacy of NLP. This has commonly occurred when enthusiastic students have applied what they have been taught, often without the full comprehension of the technique’s underlying psychology and the ecology assessment required before the technique can be used. There is a need for clear delineation between the business, clinical and coaching applications of NLP, which is gradually being addressed by the work done through the ANLP and The NLP Research and Recognition Project (R and R).
R and R is an organization which seeks to develop a program to network, support and participate in the long needed research of NLP. The organization also gathers the recognition necessary for its widespread practice. The aim is to provide basic scientific validity for NLP and establish NLP treatment centers of excellence for certain “diseases” such as asthma, phobias, anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress, depression, etc. as well as adjunctive health aids.
