Abstract: This study aimed to investigate the impact of a training program based on Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) in the development of social communications skills among gifted six grade students in the city of Amman. The sample of the study consisted of (60) gifted students from sixth grade for the second semester of the academic year (2012/2013). The students were divided into two groups, the experimental group with (30) students and the control group with (30) students. To achieve the objectives of the study a training program based on NLP was designed with ten training sessions. The measure of social communication was applied and was prepared by researchers from the perspective of NLP on the experimental and control group as pre and post measure. After an appropriate statistical analysis, the results showed statistically significant differences in social communication skills between the experimental group and control group in favor of the experimental group. Students in the experimental group showed better level of possessions and use of social communication skills. Depending on the results of the current study, the researchers have made a series of recommendations to take advantage of NLP in various fields of life.
