Moral Injury Following Traumatic Events – Jennifer Sweeton (Digital Seminar)

And today, millions of healthcare workers have been on the frontline of a deadly pandemic. Many have had to make difficult decisions that contradict deeply held beliefs about who gets care and how people should die.

So what is NLP?
NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming. Neuro refers to your neurology;
Linguistic refers to language; programming refers to how that neural language functions.
In other words, learning NLP is like learning the language of your own mind!
NLP is the study of excellent communication–both with yourself, and with others.
It was developed by modeling excellent communicators and therapists who got results with their clients.
NLP is a set of tools and techniques, but it is so much more than that.
It is an attitude and a methodology of knowing how to achieve your goals and get results
