NLP Framing and 'hot emotional transfer'

The currently popular media doom and gloom of the depression recession is without doubt the one headline that almost all the media, politicians and Dr’s of spin are stoking, milking and utilising to sell and make their cases. It is the current MASSIVE and HOT topic.

Many many people are worried about the very bad ‘news’ the media is incessantly hyping ( well it does make for grim viewing, does it not ), the  future economic status and as well many people are feeling the cash effects ( part media driven? ) of the so called ‘sub prime loans’ and ‘credit crunch’ knock on effect.

The ‘credit crunch’ is in the global mind set at the moment and by Jove what an emotionally charged, very real concept to piggy back and hitch a ride on. This is what I call current ‘hot emotional transfer’.

The Earth’s present and future ecology, a genuine subject for most of us now and certainly our children and grandchildren and great grandchildren and … … and what way to bring back illumination and emotion right on to the eco stage? … how about piggy backing ‘eco’ warnings onto this current hot and tight topic ‘credit crunch’.

A BBC internet news article carries the title

Earth on course for eco ‘crunch’

eco ‘crunch’ is now loaded with all the emotion and current reality of the ‘credit crunch. A pretty stark warning, strong move-away and a call for proactive effort within its current ‘crunch’ frame.

NLP Operating Beliefs – Operational Presuppositions

A great deal of the enabling thinking and attitudes that make NLP work really well are grouped together and collectively know as The Operating Beleifs of NLP.

The Operational beliefs of NLP are not true! They are all made up!

There is a real difference, if you think about it, between ‘a belief’ and ‘acting as if’ something is true.

One has inherent flexibility, in that, should the need arise, it is very easy to change and ‘act as if’ something more useful is ‘true’.

Here the invitation is to discover for yourself what possibilities and benefits ‘acting as if’ the operational presuppositions are ‘true’ open up both to you and for you and of course for your clients. Watch this you-tube clip or request my newsletter to access the complete video.

Words Matter! "Bail out" vs "Rescue"

An Article By Andy Hunt
Cross-posted from Practical Wellbeing

Framing is an important part of any communication. How we ‘frame’ a message can dramatically change it’s effectiveness.

In this BBC News article If only the bail-out had been called a rescue Jonathan Gabay discusses how choice of words affected the passage of America’s $700 billion bail-out plan. The use of the word bail-out is the problem he compares and contrasts two different ways of making the same pitch.

Would you prefer a $700 billion bail-out plan, or a $700 million rescue plan?

In both cases the plan is the same, the frame is different. Bail-out suggest failure and breakdown, rescue suggests heroic efforts to save the day.

The article contains an excellent discussion of the use of these frames although he talks about it in terms of branding rather than framing.

Pacing and Leading in Hypnotherapy

One of by far the most important skills in any therapeutic or coaching interaction is pacing and leading. The ability to first establish rapport and trust and then to assist your client to a more resourceful place.

The idea of pacing and leading comes from NLP. This short audio recorded from a previous Clinical Hypnotherapy Diploma training explores some of the ways of pacing and leading clients.

Binds, Double Binds and Unconscious Double Binds – Part One

By Alan Jones,
Principal of Empowerment Trainings
Trainer with Talisman Training Ltd & Communicating Excellence

Over a number of articles I intend to examine binds, double binds and unconscious double binds in relation to therapy and hypnosis.

In this article I intend to introduce the various types of binds and offer some of my initial thoughts. Later articles will explore how a client’s unconscious structure, and use of ‘various binds,’ creates and sustains their “problems”.

These articles are based on my observations and understanding of various types of binds as used in Hypnotherapy and NLP as at the time of writing. They are by no means exhaustive or proven and are offered here for your consideration. I do however, believe that they play an important part in client problems and solutions.

Firstly, I would like to point out that NLP and NLP’s version of Ericksonian hypnotherapy have their own terminology, some of which has been borrowed from the linguistics of Transformational Grammar; the surface structure and deep structure of language postulated by Noam Chomsky.

The more common everyday English term “A double bind” comes from Chess or Card games, where a player only has two moves available, or two cards left to play and whichever move or card they play they will loose the game, there is no way out. The concept is also stated in colloquial phrases such as, “Dammed if you do, dammed if you don’t” or “Caught between a rock and a hard place.” I’m sure you can think of some more.
