NLP and protection against COVID-19

In the current (June 2020) Covid 19 pandemic, it has come to our attention that some people identifying themselves as NLP providers have made claims that their psychological methods are the best protection against getting the virus.

We, in the NLP Leadership Summit, are unequivocally opposed to making such claims. No NLP methods have been researched to show effectiveness against contracting the virus. We suggest caution about any individual making such claims.

NLP methods have been shown to be beneficial to psychological health and in dealing with fear and stress. Stress has been proven to weaken immune functioning, therefore stress reduction is a useful addition to other measures we take to stay safe and healthy.

We suggest you remain informed and follow the latest research results as the scientific community learns day by day.

We encourage choosing actions that are considerate of the health and wellbeing of others, in addition to one’s self.
