On a couple of the threads that dealt with SCARS, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), was mentioned -- and, in some cases, ridiculed.

I did a little research, and it sounds a bit like a mixture of hypnosis and positive visualization/thinking/speech.

Does it have any validity in training, or is it a "get tough quick" scheme?

Fighting Spirit is 90% of the battle. If you don't have it, you ain't **** -- regardless of what style you practice.

I know nothing about it, but several Universities seem to teach it:

http://www.bradford.ac.uk/admin/conted/cfa/module.php3/LED0526M
http://www.did.stu.mmu.ac.uk/conference/neuro/neuroling.htm
etc.

Which would suggest it's not 100% garbage at least, since Universities usually demand some kind of scientific proof. Of course some are worse than others & so on...

I know about NLP. I think the SCARS thing WITH NLP is just a lame joke.

I've read some stuff on NLP. Its hard to explain in a post but its for real. Anthony Robbins has some good book sthat relate NLP to personal power etc.
With out a doubt worth reading!
