This highly interactive training course provides a solid introduction to NLP theory and practical usage. The course covers the history and cognitive basis of NLP, and activities to explain elements such as congruent and incongruent behaviour, language as used by ourselves and others, physical states, the sub-modalities of speech, and places emphasis on linking a sound theoretical understanding of NLP, with the development of real skills.
