Modern psychotherapies have along its refined methodologies by traditions the understanding of the processed through the lens of theories. Methodologies and theory are the necesary ingredients to science and research. The NLPt definition "Neuro-Linguistic Psychotherapy is a systemic imaginative modality of psychotherapy with an integrative-cognitive approach" mention the 'systemic imaginative' which can find its full meaning in the frame of Anticipatory Systems theory which is an appropiate complex systems theory for living systems. According to Anticipatory Systems all living systems has an a model which predicts the current behavior based on future and past as well external and internal environment. In NLPt this is the theoretical background for the core change methodology of our standard training and psychotherapy process we do in professional goal oriented model and explanatory scientific background of our developments for the next generation of research methodology in psychotherapy.

11:00-11:45 - NLPt & AI - Draženka Milinković
The technology of Artificial Intelligence is moving so quickly that ideas which used to seem like science fiction have a potential to became a reality. Artificial Intelligence is already present everywhere, in the mainstream, in the news and in our everyday lives. It seems like there is a movement to replace our natural biology with synthetic technology, with chips in our brain, with Artificial Intelligence making our decisions, our creativity and our imagination for us, in the ways we have never seen before and with technology so advanced that we can’t even imagine, and already is in use today.
As psychotherapists we can consider psychotherapy as one of the most human professions, offering our presence, understanding, empathy, compassion, love, support, safety, time and closeness. As neuro-linguistic psychotherapists our focus is on neurology and linguistic patterns, which are also about to change. Can we get ready to step into the future, or at least think about dangerous and opportunities facing us in this intensive times? Where is our place personally and professionally in near future? We could find ourselves in the front line to show ability of self-regulation and ability of self-resilience to change.

12:00-12:45 - Case Study G.P. Behavioral disorders and risk assessment - Radosveta Giuleva
The object of analysis are the behavioral disorders and risk assessment. This rapport examines the wants and needs of a small girl, a first-grader whose parents are separated; the main risk factors and regularities for the manifestation of aggression in the classroom and at home; the total results of the relevant factors and the degree of risk, as well as the possible approach for reducing the risks and correcting the behavior.
Reason for the study: The child's mother and teacher turn to the school psychologist. Reason - a conflict situation related to another separation in the family, which triggers anxiety and increased aggression in the child. Specific behavior in the classroom.
Goal - revealing the presence of aggression, its direction and intensity.
The methods used to collect empirical information are: "Cactus", "Asset", and "Strengths and Difficulties", according to Robert Goodman.
The study of these manifestations helps to build and propose and apply a set of measures to deal with and prevent aggressive behavior: .
Parents undergo NLP therapy sessions and conversations are held with the child to explain what the parents' separation means to the child and what lies ahead.
Work to restore trust and a sense of security.
The psychologist, NLP therapist, in the presence of one of the parents and with their consent, within 12 sessions of 30 minutes each, applies tools and methods from NLP to help develop:
- better emotional intelligence, social adaptation
- reducing anxiety, increasing personal self-esteem and self-belief.
- use of the leading representational systems
- Disney Strategy.
12 months later - The effect of exposure to risk factors and adverse behavior is completely eliminated by a set of protective factors selected according to the specific case.

14:30-15:15 - Achieving normotension. Recent advancements in the application of the MINDiet Program in the non-pharmacological treatment of hypertension based on NLPt. - Réka Bogdányi & Emese Fejes, Roland Kasek
Modern day allostatic load tougher with the aftermath of the pandemic requires state-of-the-art interventions in the field of mental health and behavioural medicine as well.
It was a long journey from the first clients – one with Hashimoto, who still keeps weight and health in check in the 9th year follow up – for MINDiet in the past 10 years, resulting an above 80% success ratio.
We have seen beautiful results within only 14 MINDiet sessions on average in hypertension with an average drop of 21/11 mmHg, resulting the gradual reduction and complete cessation of hypertension medication (ACE inhibitors, beta blockers, etc) on our clients’ own doctor’s orders.
Our general experiences and selected cases are to be discussed in the application of the MINDiet Program in the non-pharmacological treatment of hypertension.
about the presenters: all three are working as psychologist and consultant.
15:30-16:15 - The MINDiet Story. Research and development in prevention, rejuvenation and illness reversal based on NLPt. - Roland Kasek
In life sciences nothing ever stagnates, but in a constant progress either towards health or decay. It is black – with all its shades – or white. In other words, as a medical provider, you are either the part of the problem, or the solution.
Our solution at MINDiet addresses most, if not all, of these problems in a holistic, causal and evidence based intervention framework, and we measure success in objective medical data (blood pressure, body composition, cessation of – self and prescribed – medication).
Applying performance psychology and behavioural medicine together in the NLPt framework with clients struggling with their looks paved the way for holistic prevention and illness reversal for us in the past 10 years.

16:30-17:15 - Deciphering the Fear of Public Speaking: The Impact of Speech Anxiety Inner Dialogue and Negative Future Pacing - Dan Florin Stănescu
Fear of public speaking is a psychological condition characterized by nervousness, or apprehension when speaking in front of an audience or any situation that involves public speaking. This is often associated with physical symptoms such as trembling, sweating, and dry mouth, and cognitive symptoms like fear of embarrassment or prediction of poor performance and failure. The study is based on a cross-sectional design, with data being collected from a convenience sample of 206 participants (39 males, 167 females), aged between 18 and 35 years old (M=19.84, SD=2.38) through the following structured questionnaires: Speech Anxiety Thoughts Inventory (Cho et al., 2003) revealing the toxic inner dialogue, and Personal Report of Confidence as a Speaker scale (Heeren et al., 2013) who measure the fear of public speaking. The study’s results suggest that fear of public speaking (r=.766, p<.01) strongly correlates with Speech Anxiety Thoughts. Moreover, the two subscales of Speech Anxiety Thoughts, namely Fear of Negative Evaluations (r=.656, p<.01) and Prediction of Poor Performance (r=.785, p<.01) also showed significant correlations with fear of public speaking. Practical implications of the recent study are discussed as well as some directions for future research in the area.
