This string raised the important question related to who: what friend, loved one, boss would seek to 'rewire' the brains of friends, loved ones, or employees?
Corporate employers (under the influence) regularly mandate training for their employees that involves LGAT technologies. These were pioneered, in part, by the NTL (National Training Laboratory) and the Tavistock Institute, and refined at the Esalen Institute. These interventions are delivered by 'coaches', faciliators, and Ph.D's who have also had their brains rewired.
(Note, I did a perusal of on-line coach/executive coaching discussion groups, yesterday. Virtually all have 'NLP' focus or discussion groups.
While I think their is a serious level of betrayal involved when 'friends' lead 'friends' into quote, unquote self-improvement groups, there is a whole other level of coercive influence occurring when participation in LGAT, and other interventions becomes a condition of one's employment, and, w/o informed consent.
In the course of my employment a consultant for a psych-hive that did this work, I frequently asked about the matter of informed consent, no answers, and wondered 'why' this is not more litigation related to behavioral modification in the workplace.
Yes, performance management, the carrot and stick stuff, entails systems of BM...systems of reward and punishment, but, this, does not, I think, entail neural rewiring.
Note, too, that LGAT technologies are also employed in the sphere of education, primary through tertiary, and, in community groups, e.g. PTA's.
I would like to know more about any litigation that has occurred related to informed consent, and neural rewiring technologies used in the workplace, and venues other than designated self-help groups.
