There have been several papers going against the effectiveness of NLP. One aggregate paper is referenced in the Wikipedia article on NLP, namely Witkowski (2010). However, NLP seems to encompass a wide variety of techniques. I'm particularly interested in the fast phobia cure.
Is there any empirical support for or against the fast phobia cure?
