Emotional Development: Treating the Whole Person

The Maturity Process

Deep in the right hemisphere of every human brain is a control center that develops during the first two years after conception. This center will run our lives and bodies, and provided we develop a strong one, will see us through the tempests of life. We seek to train and restore this control center. With it we can regulate our emotions, act like ourselves and stay synchronized inside and out.

The LIFE Model

The majority of our maturity training and emotional development comes from the LIFE Model book Living From the Heart Jesus Gave You. The LIFE Model is a profoundly Christian blueprint for wholeness. The LIFE Model does not just talk about growing – it gives our students and families practical steps on how to mature. The LIFE Model does not just promote recovery – it identifies specific ways to heal traumas. The LIFE Model challenges our students and families to change and grow and be the people that God designed them to be. 

The Five to Thrive

The LIFE Model suggests that people need five things in order to thrive: 

A place to belong
To both receive and give life
The capacity to recover from malfunctions
Maturation
To stay true to their identities

These five elements apply, whether we consider physical growth, emotional growth, family growth, community growth or spiritual growth. Thriving means building a strong control center through joyful attachment bonds that bring peace and return us to joy when we become upset.
