Neuro-Linguistic Psychotherapy (NLPt) is a systemic imaginative method of psychotherapy with an integrative-cognitive approach, recognised by European Association of Psychoteraphy. However there are few papers on this subject, especially in Polish, which is the reason we have written this one. We presented history and origins of NLPt and differences between NLPt and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), as well as the present state of the research. Theoretical background, mechanisms underlying and techniques used in NLPt were described in the field of PTSD, phobias, OCD and traumas, eg. Reconsolidation of Traumatic Memories or Visual/Kinesthetic dissociation protocol. The research show successful ways for treating PTSD, trauma, phobias and other anxiety disorders. Even though NLPt is a young approach, there are promising reports showing its potential, rapidness and durability in psychotherapy of people suffering from PTSD (veterans), assaults, rapes or traumas (eg. violence or abuse during childhood). There is also a strong need for systemizing psychological knowledge which explains the mechanisms underlying neurolinguistics ways of interventions and further research on this subject.
