Barnett E A: The contribution and influence of neurolinguistic programming on analytical hypnotherapy.
Australian Journal of Clinical Hypnotherapy and Hypnosis 11(1): 1-14, 1990.
Abstract: Outlines those areas of neurolinguistic programming (NLP) that have been adapted to analytical hypnotherapy and appear to have enhanced its effectiveness in practice. In spite of the divergent philosophies underlying these therapies the author finds that they have much in common and sometimes appear to travel along very similar pathways. Although NLP appears to wish to avoid being classed as a hypnotherapy, much of it employs hypnosis in a manner that may not be recognized as such by either the therapist or the client. Techniques such as anchoring and reframing make direct communication with the unconscious mind and the memories retained therein. Such communication must be regarded as hypnosis although formal induction of hypnosis is not an essential feature of NLP. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved).
