- Roland KASEK: Pacing a lighter future. Perspectives of NLP/NLPt in the treatment of obesity
Learning abilities of the immune system are prevalent. Meta-analyses of current researches conclude that conditioning triggers predicatble immune response. NLP/NLPt techniques may serve as a fundamental solution in the treatments of obesity and other immune-related illnesses, as they were proven effective in the therapy of psychic allergies (Dilts, 1990; Biró, 2006, 2009, 2015; Nyikus, 2015; Porzsolt, 2015). Based on practice, the psycho-neuroimmonulogic treadwheel of obesity can be reversed successfully with a combination of NLPt methods based on the allergy process. Treatment strategies, possible outcomes, and case studies are discussed.
Roland Kasek has an MA in organizational psychology, Master Practitioner of NLP/NLPt and focuses on developing performance improvement strategies for private and corporate clients. The author's main area of scientific interest is the individual and cultural differences of the real, perceived and opined performance. The computerised test based investigation currently concludes that the subjects malfunction between certain neuro-logical levels (Dilts, 1996) can be specified, and then can be addressed accordingly.
Claudine MARCHAND: Personal interpretation of NLP/NLPt past to future
Offering a compared vision of the parallels in the development of NLP/NLPt, the evolution in neuroscience and our societal models.The understanding of our world depends on our societal model. When Meta / NLP was created, it was well ahead of its time stressing the belief that our life experience was tributary to our interpretations. Today, with the findings of quantum physics trickling down into our everyday life, we can push even further in our understanding of how mind works. This will open new avenue for NLP/NLPt and the ability of creating novel societal models, too.
From a PhD in Lifesciences and fundamental research in neurobiology to teaching (primary to university levels), coaching and therapy with the tools of cutting edge science and philosophy, alternative medicine and indigenous traditions, I am exploring the ways human beings fonction and how to create ever more freedom and peace in human interaction with Self, others, nature, etc.
Dan Florin STANESCU: Modelling musical capabilities – guitar playing
While it is possible for one to detect a person’s dexterity upon an instrument visually, auditorily and sometimes even kinaesthetically, it is the hypothesis here that there are other sets of skills which are just as important and just as essential to musical capability as the manual technique applied when playing the instrument.
Modeling is a process whereby an observer gathers information about the activity of a system with the aim of constructing a generalised description (a model) of how that system works.
Playing guitar might be considered such activity that has a structure, and recognizing and defining that structure, can help us to enrich our understanding of the predictors and effects of that process.
The purpose of this study is to identify strategies and patterns in how musicians organized their experience of the world around them and then acted in that world so that we may gain some new insights on how they operate.
In order to get the relevant data for the study, direct observation and interview were employed.Observation offers the opportunity to record and analyse behaviour as they occur, allowing events, actions and experiences to be 'seen' through the eyes of the researcher (Ritchie & Lewis, 2003, 35). For this purpose, three exemplars were carefully selected. With each of them an in-depth interview was conducted (videotaped). All the components of the schema were elicited, using an interview schedule (Darlington & Scott, 2002, 141), which followed Robert Dilts logical level model (Dilts, 1998). At the end of the interview each exemplar was asked to perform a small piece of music for a live observation of exemplar achieving their results (Frost, 2011).
After careful examination of the gathered information, we have created a model that might be followed, a model in which we have integrated different parts of my models elicitated strategies – and it worked!

Fran BURGESS: Modelling - the Heart and Mind of NLP
Our clients create their reality. It is our job as therapists to discover just how they are doing that. Through discovering the underpinning structure, they (or we) can set about restructuring it. This process of modelling gifts to the client control of their own processing and acknowledges their uniqueness.
Happily for us we have many many avenues open to us to explore and reveal our clients’ internal structure. Our neurological and linguistic technology is fantastic! The more skilled and intelligent we become at the process of modelling, the more options we have available in the service of our clients. And the greater our gift to them.
Fran will offer you an overarching framework within which you can operate as a modeller and a therapist, and provide you with details of the many options available to you, some of which will be familiar to you and some new. She seeks to offer you clarity in a process which is often overcomplicated, misunderstood or even overlooked.
Fran Burgess has had nearly 40 years experience within the world of NLP, as a learner, trainer, psychotherapist and writer. She was the Director of the UK based Northern School of NLP, a registered UKCP psychotherapist and author of three books, The NLP Cookbook, The Bumper Bundle of Modelling* and The Bumper Bundle Companion Workbook. Her mission has been to simplify the process of Modelling so that it becomes accessible to all practitioners.

Larysa SPITSYNA: Perspective of the neurolinguistic approach in the system of integrative psychotherapeutic practice
The perspective of NLP in my vision is interesting to consider in the context of new approaches in theory, as well as in the light of the actual tasks of psychological and psychotherapeutic practice.
Of the many theoretical approaches that have been scientifically substantiated in the sphere of psychotherapeutic practice, and in Ukrainian practice in providing psychotherapeutic assistance and psychosocial support to the affected population, the integrative approach (more precisely, the integrative paradigm) deserves attention.
We are talking about the prospect of resorting to an integrative approach as such, which makes it possible to combine the resources of different approaches, such as the cognitive-behavioral approach + psychoanalysis (Otto Kerberg, Lothar Schattenberg), or NLP + Gestalt therapy+ psychodrama ++ (Frank Pucelic) in trauma psychotherapy, or many other.
Recently in Ukraine, unfortunately, has become an urgent problem of provide psychological support to families experiencing the consequences of the war, traumatic events and socio – economical crisis.
Analysis of levels and symptom manifestation of the consequences of the traumatic experience of the personality and family in conflicts has a difficult and multilevel nature. And, as practice shows, in the work with such complex social and psychological problems, integrative psychotherapeutic approaches are often effective.
Practically no country has the resources for mental health and psychosocial care for all people in need: there is great need for innovative, low-cost solutions. Scalable interventions are a promising new integrative direction in terms of efficacy and rank high in research priority setting. And it opens the possibility of combining the resources of a variety of approaches, including the use of NLPt models in psychotherapeutic work.

In recent years, after the outbreak of the conflict in eastern Ukraine, I began to work in the field of redirection and coordination of the activities of psychosocial support organizations that provide assistance to the affected population on the basis of an integrative and multidisciplinary approach.
Catalin ZAHARIA: The Ontology of NLPt
The Ontology of NLPt from cybernetics does not properly describe the human beings Ontology of Organisms (Whitehead , CoAuthor of Russel) does seem to be a more appropriate approach. We will disscuss this in detail.

Peter SCHUTZ: Quality of NLP trainings: TheTST triad - timeline, structure and team
NLP trainings today are offered by 10.000 - 25.000 centers worldwide, mostly by level 1-3 centers (www.icpnlp.org). This is a consequence of bad standards abused by the many competence liberated sales gurus and rip off presentation formats, that – with very few exceptions - lead to a very low form of acceptance of NLP in Government and Academia.
Around 0.1% of the worldwide NLP centers have produced research, eg www.nlpt.at/r1. Even less have idependent external quality criteria like ISO 29990.
So there is a lot of room for improvement.

Melita REINER: Nonverbal communication and dynamic of inner parts
In order to gain a better understanding of the changes in perception, language, mental and emotional processing and behaviour in humans, the concept of “inner parts” was developed, providing a framework to explain the inner dynamics of the intrapsychic world. A large part of these processes occur on a level we call the “unconscious”, capable of simultaneously processing and organising huge quantities of information, and are expressed by means of nonverbal communication channels.
In the presentation we will be exploring ways how, by applying specific observational skills, we can more easily get an insight into the dynamic of inner parts and possibly predict future behaviour.
