The Clinical Effectiveness of Neurolinguistic Programming. A Critical Appraisal Edited by Lisa Wake, Richard Gray, Frank Bourke. Published 22nd October 2012 by Routledge – 274 pages. Series: Advances in Mental Health Research
Despite widespread use, Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) is a topic of much debate, often receiving criticism from academic and professional sectors. In this book international academics, researchers and therapists are brought together to examine the current evidence of the clinical efficacy of NLP techniques, considering how NLP can be effective in facilitating change, enrichment and symptom relief. Lisa Wake and her colleagues provide a critical appraisal of evidence-based research in the area to indicate the benefits of the approach and identify the need for an increase in randomized well-controlled clinical trials.
