NLP has been in existence since the mid 1970’s. In the early years, little research had been done to test the effectiveness of the NLP model. Since that time there has been a growing interest within the NLP community to gather scientific evidence to back up claims that people have reported as a result of learning and using NLP. In spite of growing evidence and reports of significant breakthroughs from participants who have studied NLP or worked with a practitioner of NLP, people have continued to view NLP as a pseudo-science. During this age of “fake news,” we suggest that you do some of your own research.
Here are a number of links describing past and current research.
