Neurolinguistic Programming: Its Purpose and The Basic Ideas (NLP Certificate Course - Session 1) (Pre-Recorded)
This course is intended only for personal and professional development and is not eligible for CEUs.
This series provides an opportunity for everyone to be immersed in what it looks like and what it takes to achieve our goals. It helps redefine our goals, not from an outside-in paradigm, but rather from an inside-out paradigm.
Format: Pre-Recorded Online Seminar
This is the first session in the 12-Session Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Certificate Course.

The Mother of Family Therapy, Virginia Satir; the Father of Gestalt Therapy, Fritz Perls; and the prominent psychiatrist, Milton Erikson, were studied to determine why they were the best in their respective fields.
Common patterns in both language and thought were found, and this was the start of an organized body of knowledge that has been used by millions of clinicians throughout the world as adjunctive treatment. In terms of its adjunctive psychotherapeutic use, NLP has been validated and recognized by the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy.
You will then learn adjunctive tools to help you get unstuck when the more known evidence-based and traditional treatment modalities fail to work.
There are NO CEUs attached to it.
This Certificate Course is intended only for clinicians who are motivated enough to learn these new skills that may become readily handy when least expected.
