PostSubject: the role of the NLP practitioner in society   Wed Sep 17, 2008 10:27 am

hey richie,

been listening to some of the NLP CDs you sent me a while back. interesting stuff for sure, so much so i just ordered a few more of your other titles.
(yes its true, im actually paying for some lol! )

this NLP thing has got me wondering.
how do you see the different roles of the Psychologist, the Psychiatrist, and the NLP practitioner?

what conditions/disorders do you think NLP is most suited for?
do you think your degree in psychology has been a big help in developing your skill as a therapist?
and if not from a practical stand point, how about from giving you academic credibility in the eyes of employers and clients?

thanks

Hi Simon

sorry for delay, Im trying to find time to work my way round to every question/issue in order



Quote :

I see those "roles" as being fairly fluid and determined by the human being performing that role... even psychiatry leaves much scope to determine therapeutic solutions...

not sure of that actually answers the question you are asking to be honest, if you can be more specific I can give you more specific answers-

one more thing I would add is that being a psychiatrist is a reasonably tightly defined role, being a "psychologist" in and of itself is fairly meaningless unless you add another word to it like "educational" or "behavioural"... being an NLP practitoner could mean anything from life coach to therapist to self protection trainer



Quote :
what conditions/disorders do you think NLP is most suited for?

anything that is not rooted in a physical/genetic issue that wouldnt better be treated with chemicals or surgery... i.e. if its emotional or psychological NLP will always be of SOME help even if it isnt the BEST solution for that condition or disorder- I am of the opinion that there are other models of therapy that particularly suit certain disorders better than traditional NLP... but then those other models can be accelerated/improved with NLP skills and concepts...

keep going down this path and soon we will be saying "what is NLP and what is not NLP?" ... much like systems of martial arts and combatives, same same.

Not really, my degree was largely academic and useless

the unitiated are impressed, those who are savvy know that there are people out there with 1stclass psychology degrees who while "qualified" are not actually "capable" of doing anything at all... many not even capable of basics like effective human interaction, being polite, basic hygeine etc

I dont think much of educational institutions, the people who run them or the people they churn out, on the whole-

However I do believe there are some brilliant minds out there who were indeed made slightly more shiny by their experience of the educational process- but these are few and far between: people like engineers, physicists and medical researchers- disciplines that thrive on
1.structure and
2.the acquistion of knowledge

this is what the education system prizes above all else... these ideals are literally thousands of years old and very very out of date- adherence to structure and the acquisition of knowledge does NOT foster the emotional intelligence, creativty, insight and awareness that some skillsets like psychological therapy require

Why you ask? you want get degree? just buy on internet for cheap from university of umbongo
