NLP Expert Training

The NLP Expert Training is only for people who are at least already certified as NLP Master Practitioners. The purpose of the NLP Expert Training is to further and deepen the understanding of NLP by NLP Master Practitioners and NLP trainers. The NLP Expert Training is not meant to help you become better at NLP. Primarily NLP is a practice. In fact one needs very little understanding of NLP in order to be able to use NLP. Yet, many NLP Master Practitioners and NLP trainers have expressed a desire to learn more about NLP and understand NLP more thoroughly.

To ensure this objective the NLP Expert Training targets three areas of interest:

  1. How does the brain work?
  2. How does language work?
  3. How does learning work?

These three areas of interest of course correspond with the three parts of the NLP name: Neuro-Linguistic Programming. Neuro covers the brain. Linguistic corresponds to language and Programming is the equivalent of learning. All three areas are covered by the three day training programme of the NLP Expert Training. In details you learn:

Day 1 – the brain and modern neuroscience

How does the brain work? Most NLP Master Practitioners and NLP trainers know there is something called a brain frequency and neurotransmitters. Yet, many modern insights of neuroscience are not yet widely shared within the NLP community. During day one of the NLP Expert Training you learn the following:

  • How the brain works through frequencies, neurotransmitters and neuromodulators.
  • How NLP helps the brain to unlearn negative patterns and teaches positive patterns and how this is realized in the physical brain.
  • The difference between neurotransmitters, neuromodulators and hormones.
  • How the brain uses rewards in order to learn through the dopamine and oxytocin reward systems.
  • The difference between the software of the brain resulting in trainable skills and the hardware of the brain resulting in untrainable behavior.
  • How Personality Neuroscience influences the way you and other persons use NLP for personal change.
  • How the brain uses pyramidal neurons to weigh whether someone‚Äôs world model remains intact and sense data is ignored, or that the sense data makes such an impact that the world model is updated.

Day 2 – Super precise language patterning

NLP is a language based methodology. Yet, many NLP Master Practitioners and NLP trainers desire a better grasp and understanding of the metamodel and Miltonmodel. Many of the language patterns used by NLP today stem from linguistics from the 50s and 60s of the previous century. By going into detail about all the deep reasons for why these language patterns work as well as they do, you further your ability to use and understand how language influences positive change in other people. During day two you learn:

  • Why there are only three categories of language patterns in the metamodel.
  • The modern statistical way of using the deep- and surface structure.
  • A deep understanding of how different language patterns shift into each other when you use the metamodel to challenge metamodel violations.
  • Why presuppositions work so well and why stacking presuppositions makes them work even better.
  • A mathematical description of the metamodel.

Day 3 – Applying the scientific lessons of the ABC model to NLP

The brain has two major ways of learning. The first is Pavlovian associative learning or what we call anchoring within the field of NLP. The second way is instrumental learning where the brain uses positive reinforcement to update the world model by coding which behaviors lead to rewards. While anchoring is of course an important and integrated part of NLP, instrumental learning is less well known. Nevertheless, there is a lot of scientific research that shows that for sustained change positive reinforcement is needed. So during day three you learn everything about the ABC-model which is the heart of positive reinforcement and how it applies to NLP. Among other things you learn:

  • What is the ABC-model?
  • How to adapt NLP change work to fit the ABC-model.
  • How the ABC-model relates to the TOTE model of NLP.
  • How to use our app to help you to positively reinforce your trainees and coachees.
  • How to apply positive reinforcement in a training and coaching environment.
