Come and practice NLP in Newcastle with a friendly and inclusive group that is all about experiential learning and the practical application of NLP in your life.

The SCORE model was invented by Robert Dilts and Todd Epstein in the mid 80s when they looked at the way that they were helping their clients and student solve problems. By dividing the problem down into the following components:

  • Symptoms: The signs that something is wrong or not as it should be. In personal life this could be an anxiety or traumatic response, in a work setting it could be a poorly motivated team or a misbehaving class.
  • Causes: What happened in the life of the individual or group that lead to these symptoms
  • Outcomes: What do you want instead? Where do you want to be when the problem is solved. An outcome orientation is a fundamental part of the NLP world view.
  • Resources: What skills, feelings, beliefs, values and other resources do you have that can be used to get you where you want to go.
  • Effects: What are the effects of the outcome you are seeking. How will your goal play out over time? A consideration of the long term results of a plan often makes a huge difference to what happens (the Invasion of Iraq being a good example of what happens when you don’t think beyond the obvious objective).

To have an experience of the SCORE model and how you can put it into practice join Nigel and Andy at the NLP Cafe workshop on Wednesday 11th February at St Oswald’s Hospice Teaching Centre at 7pm. You don’t need any knowledge of NLP to attend this event but you do need to be willing to roll up your sleeves and join in.
