    Hello everybody.
    I was asked by a client whether NLP has any specific reading matter regarding its contribution to working with happiness, specifically peer-reviewed articles.
    Any suggestions, please
    My regards
    Armand

    Hi guys,

    Melody (Cheal) did some research for her MSc in Positive Psychology linking NLP and wellbeing and self esteem. An article was published in: Current Research in NLP: vol 2 – Proceedings of 2010 Conference (which is peer reviewed).

    Cheers,

    Joe.

    Hi Armand and group,
    Regarding NLP and its contribution to working with happiness.
    I can offer a recently-completed study, a randomized clinical trial of the Core Transformation work. The research was well-done, through Loyola University in Maryland, by a doctoral student, Dinesh Braganza. Richard Gray, (of the NLP R & R project), participated on his Doctoral committee.
    It hasn’t yet been published in a journal, but apparently the dissertation committee was quite impressed, both with the quality of the research and with the strength of the results. It will be published soon on Loyola University’s website.

    Braganza used standard measures, including multiple measures of wellbeing. (I don’t know if they included the same measures as is used in the “happiness research” but I suspect so.).
    I’m attaching a synopsis of the research, and below is a quote from the synopsis:

    “It is striking that a single session of Core Transformation produced effect sizes similar or greater in magnitude to those obtained by approximately 15 sessions of CBT(Cognitive Behavior Therapy) or ISTDP, or 8 weeks of MBSR (mindfulness training), which comprised 2.5 hour-long weekly group sessions and 20 minutes daily meditation.”

    If anyone is interested in seeing the complete dissertation, with details of the research, you’re welcome to email me and I’ll send you a copy.

    I’m not sure if this is the kind of thing you are looking for, Armand. I hope it helps.
    Best,
    Connirae Andreas

    Dear Connirae,

    Would you please send to me the full dissertation? I think our Master Degree on NLP students would love to have access to this.

    Much love to you and Steve

    Thank you Connirae , very good to read !!!

    publication of the full article on a university hp might mean that good journals will not take the article any more…..

    which blind peer reviewed journal do you head to publish the article ? hopefully impact factor above 1.3

    here some ideas

    Thank you Peter, for your suggestions!
    I’ll send you the dissertation, and I will pass on your info on peer reviewed journals to the research team.

    Also I realize I forgot to include my email, so that if anyone else wants a copy of the dissertation/research, you can email me directly.
