Overview

When Stephen Lankton first published this book in 1980, he had no idea to what extent NLP would integrate its ideas into our daily lives. Now released once again with a new foreward tracing its origins, this classic, almost "cult" volume remains as relevant as when it was first published. Using language easily available to the therapeutic practitioner, Lankton displays a command both of the Neuro-Linguistic Programming techniques and the actual context that the therapy operates in. He demonstrates all the basic techniques for change and relates these to other established schools of psychotherapy. The result is a fortunate marriage of theory and practice. The book covers a wide range of topics -- some in depth, some only a tantalizing glimpse of possibilities which therapists dream of succeeding at. The outcome is a happy event which therapist, novice or veteran, will find useful.
