The Immanuel Approach is an unusually safe, gentle, effective, and transferable method for helping people establish an interactive connection with the living presence of Jesus which yields emotional healing. The basic Immanuel Approach principles and tools can be learned in a matter of hours, but that it takes a lifetime to master the intermediate and advanced principles and tools.
At this Immanuel Approach Conference, Dr. Karl Lehman, M.D., will provide teaching and modeling regarding intermediate-advanced principles and tools for identifying and resolving blockages when recipients are having difficulty connecting with Jesus, for other troubleshooting challenges, for identifying and resolving confusion, accidental counterfeits, and deliberate counterfeits that contaminate connections with Jesus, and for using the Immanuel Approach safety nets in difficult situations. Time for Q&A will be provided for attendees.
In addition to the intermediate-advanced topics already mentioned above, Dr. Lehman will talk about recipients who have trouble finding positive memories, he will describe how to care for dissociative parts who are pretending to be Jesus, and he will share new insights regarding how to avoid destroying your ministry or causing other harm due to inappropriate relationships.
Dr. Lehman intends to provide two to three live demonstrations for some of the intermediate-advanced principles and tools to be presented in this conference (depending on time constraints and other variables).
Depending on time constraints and other variables, it may be possible to have a group exercise to practice advanced safety net principles and tools.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Christian lay people. For mature believers who already have some training and experience with the Immanuel Approach, and who already have a good awareness of your own emotional and spiritual strengths and weaknesses – the intermediate-advanced principles and tools presented in this conference will help you keep moving forward, with respect to both your own healing and growth and your ministry to others.
People in ministry. The primary objective of the Immanuel approach to life is improving the depth and quality of our connection with God, and the Immanuel approach to emotional healing is the easiest, safest, and most effective method that we are aware of for resolving traumatic memories. The Immanuel approach to life and the Immanuel approach to emotional healing are perfectly suited for those in ministry, and especially for those in Christian emotional healing ministry. For people in ministry who already have some training and experience with the Immanuel Approach, the intermediate and advanced principles and tools presented in this conference will help you take the next step in increasing your effectiveness.
Christian mental health professionals. In developing the Immanuel approach, Dr. Lehman and Dr. Wilder have carefully integrated truth from scripture, observations from their combined 60+ years of clinical experience, and brain research regarding trauma, memory, and the neurological pathways for processing painful experiences. The Immanuel approach to emotional healing is also consistent with many of the principles and techniques from the psychotherapies with the most empirical research support, such as cognitive therapy, exposure therapy, and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). Furthermore, in our experience, the Immanuel approach to emotional healing has been the easiest, safest, and most effective method for resolving psychological trauma. For mental health professionals who already have some training and experience with the Immanuel Approach, the intermediate and advanced principles and tools presented in this conference will help you keep moving forward with respect to faith-based psychotherapy work.
NOTE: this conference is not intended to provide psychotherapy or healing ministry for people in crisis. Dr. Lehman will not be able to provide private consultations, individual ministry, or follow-up after the conference.
Dr. Karl Lehman, M.D., is a board-certified psychiatrist with thirty years and more than forty thousand hours of clinical experience. He has worked tenaciously throughout his career to integrate his personal Christian faith with medical science, modern mental health care, and his rigorous scientific training; and he has especially worked to integrate faith-based emotional healing with insights provided by psychological and neurological research.
Working closely with Dr. E. James Wilder, Dr. Lehman developed the Immanuel Approach. In addition to observations from his clinical work, regular consultation with colleagues, and extensive ongoing study of a wide range of research literature, Dr. Lehman is also deeply committed to his own growth and healing. He is constantly learning through the application of emotional healing principles and tools in his personal journey.
