RESEARCH AND RECOGNITION PROJECT UPDATE
The Research and Recognition project is working toward developing a well funded program to network, support and participate in the long needed research of NLP and to gather the recognition necessary for its widespread practice. In short, a great deal has been happening! Below some of the primary accomplishments to date will be listed briefly. It is an exciting time for the NLP Research and Recognition Project. The support for the project’s mission and goals among the diverse NLP community is heartening and portends a bright future for NLP, those who practice it, and all those who could benefit if NLP had more wide spread recognition as the valuable technology that it is. We continue to need your support to keep up the momentum, so participate in any way you can!
ACCOMPLISHMENTS TO DATE:
#1. NOT FOR PROFIT INCORPORATION with committed leadership from experienced personnel encompassing business, academic, NLP, research and politics, sufficient to manage a multimillion dollar corporation.
#2. FORMAL SUPPORT of over forty NLP Institutes, two University Departments and more than seven hundred multi talented volunteers.
#3. COMPLETE STATE OF THE ART PTSD RESEARCH SEQUENCE from initial pilot studies to certified training programs of the NPL derived, scientifically researchable, protocol for the treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome, (PTSD) labeled Reconsolidation of Traumatic Memories (RTM). Complete Grant costs out at 15M and contains all the necessary logistics for three years completion.
#4. GRANT SUBMISSIONS The development and submission of four smaller PTSD grant proposals based upon the large, complete research sequence. Two more currently under development.
#5. NLP RESEARCH LIBRARY 1200 article entries, APA formatted.
#6. NLP NEUROLOGY ARTICLE: Professor Rick Gray and Rich Liotta, Ph.D., have written an article based on recent neurological advances in measuring traumatic memories that when published this winter in Traumatology Journal will put “RTM” the
VK-D derived PTSD protocol in the scientific literature.
#7. SOSSEC, a consortium of corporations developing Homeland security infrastructure, has joined the R & R project to their prestigious corporate and academic stable (Carnigie Mellon, Rutgers U., CTC Corp.etc.). Their sponsored proposal to provide research and training on the PTSD Protocol to ” Homeland Security Emergency Responders” was reviewed by the U.S. Army research arm, ARDEC, and recommended for 3.5M funding from the House Appropriations Committee.
#8. NLP WIKI. Lisa Wake, a clinical leader and author from the UK is about to open and “web master” the long awaited NLP WIKI dialogues in order to foster continuing dialogue between the European and American NLP communities with an emphasis on raising research interest and awareness.
#9. NLP RESEARCH SYMPOSIUM: Frank Bourke, representing the Research Project, gave the keynote address at the Second International NLP Research Conference in Wales and the Project has joined the conference for the presentation of NLP research as a supporting member.
#10. ONLINE RESEARCH: Wayne Perry, and the Project Research Committee, has developed and piloted the online software to begin research of long held NLP clinical assumptions about sub-modalities.
#11. BRAIN RESEARCH CENTER: A neuro-psychological research laboratory affiliated with Columbia University has joined with the project to research the RTM treatment protocol for PTSD. Pilot study will begin this Fall.
#12. PILOT NATIONAL EMERGENCY RESPONSE CENTER PHILADELPHIA: Sossec has asked us to present a training proposal in November 2010 for all of homeland securities line staff at the first regional national emergency response Center which will be placed in Philadelphia. The center will house police, firemen, emergency responders and a communication Center to coordinate all federal and state disaster responses.
#13. MARSHALL UNIVERSITY NLP DEPARTMENT: The NLP Center at Marshall University was established in 2009 to develop undergraduate, graduate, and continuing education credits in the field of NLP. To begin operation it requires an endowment of $1 million.
SOME OF THE PROJECTS AWAITING FUNDING:
Library completion and translation
Online research on submodalities
NLP emergency response team
Practitioners Outcome Evaluation
The complete research and certified training materials for PTSD treatment.
NLP WIKI Dialogue
Large foundation grants to new developments such as NLP require the support of the new developments community. To satisfy this need a number of project volunteers, led by Andy Taylor MSW and Rich Liotta Ph.D. developed a funding drive committee and action plan which is about to rollout the initial steps. NLP Institutes and their members currently supporting the project exceed 100,000 people. If only 10% of these current members donate $3.99 a month to help our cause that would create approximately $39,000 a month in additional revenue and more than satisfy Foundation funding requirements and current R & R Project needs.
