Emotional Healing Referrals: Our best current resource for Immanuel approach facilitators are the Immanuel Network Directory and the Referrals page of www.immanuelapproach.com. Our emotional healing network is primarily in the Chicago area, so we have limited referral information for other parts of Illinois, other states, or other countries.

Influential Figures:

Dr. Jim Wilder, the LIFE Model, and THRIVE. One of the more significant influences on our perspective and practice of emotional healing, and the bigger picture of life of which healing is only a part, comes from Dr. Jim Wilder (E. James Wilder, PhD), and a model he helped develop called the LIFE Model (see www.LIFEModel.org). THRIVE is a conference and body of teaching which applies and fleshes out the LIFE Model (see www.thrivetoday.org). Please click here for additional information about our relationship with Dr. Wilder, use of the LIFE Model, and THRIVE.

Dr. Ed Smith and Theophostic® Prayer Ministry. We respect Dr. Ed Smith (Ed Smith, DMin), and the powerful contribution to the field of emotional healing that he has made through his development of "Theophostic® Prayer Ministry" (see his website, www.theophostic.com).
