Judith DeLozier is one of the co- developers of Neuro-Linguistic Programming and an affiliated partner of nlpgreece®, Alexandra Efthimiadou PhD, www.nlpgreece.gr. One of the most outstanding female trainers in the history of NLP, she is considered in the community as the first lady of NLP.
Judith was one of the original members of Grinder and Bandler’s group, while her studies in Anthropology at the University of California at Santa Cruz (UCSC) -the birthplace of NLP. She has made fundamental contributions to the development of numerous NLP models and processes such as Reframing, Perceptual Positions and Somatic Syntax. She also studied and modeled Dr. Milton Erickson tracking strategy for creating and utilizing trance states and metaphors. This work is described in Patterns of the Hypnotic Techniques of Milton H. Erickson, M.D. Vol. II (1976), which she co- authored with John Grinder and Richard Bandler.
Judith has been mainly responsible for bringing NLP to the area of transcultural competence, pioneering the application of NLP to the development of cross cultural skills. In the book “Turtles All the Way Down: Prerequisites to Personal Genius” (1987), which she co-authored with John Grinder, Judith explored the interrelationships between NLP and the threads of culture, community, art, aesthetics and epistemology.
In the book “NLP-2. The Next Generation” (2010), Judith explored the interrelationships between Cognitive, Somatic and Field Intelligence. The result of this two fundamental works was the creation of “NLP New Coding” and “Third Generation NLP” which stimulated a movement toward a more systemic and relational approach to NLP. She co-developed a number of projects applying Systemic NLP, ranging from modeling leadership, to health care and cross-cultural competence. The Encyclopedia of Systemic Neuro-Linguistic Programming and NLP New Coding, she co- authored with Robert Dilts in 2000, provides a comprehensive overview of the field of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, including its wide range of applications, techniques and influences.
Since 1975 she leads NLP programs all over the world, including Europe, Asia, Indonesia, Australia, Mexico, Central America, Canada, and the United States. With Robert Dilts, she has designed and has been teaching the NLP University Santa Cruz California (NLPU)curriculum since 1992.
