'Working in a specialty can be rewarding and isolating'


Again, someone spouting the tripe that is neuro-linguistic programming, what next, sacrificing animals and reading their entrails? Beware the Ides of March, O Nursing Times reader and use the following non-verbal cue to people who use it (NLP): extend middle and index fingers towards the sky whilst closing the rest of the hand. Place opposite hand on the ante-cubital fossa, vigourously contract biceps and then triceps whilst blowing a raspberry. NLP is chicanery, the mental equivalent of homeopathic remedies that are diluted to concentrations of one part per universe. NLP is a get-rich quick scheme for the gurus who spout it as a cure-all for the psyche of middle aged overweight Americans who don't realise that they are being sold snake-oil by a carpetbagger and move onto the next greaseball with the shiniest infomercial and the most outlandish 'claims' backed by no evidence ' Leading scientists { who? Steven Hawking?} state that using our new and improved dog-shite shampoo* twice a day could make you a better Burger flipper/ CEO by utilising the invisible power of smell so you are promoted to that corner office you have always felt you so richly deserved' ** * Contains 40% dog-shite, 60% horse-shite ** Results may vary due to individual IQ and previous results in national standardised tests
