If you are not sure what to say or how to bring up difficult topics, you are not alone says Keith Dorscht, our guest on Pastor’s Weekly. He has developed a software that makes it safe and easy to talk about important issues in life.

For relationships that are floundering this program gives a safe way to begin conversation. Brain science has discovered that if we can stay connected for 20 minutes, a powerful dose of oxytocin is released. Oxytocin is the bonding hormone. Bonding takes a little time: first you empathize, then you sympathize and then you are moved with compassion.
This little program offers some 30 topics and helps a couple work through them together and bond in the process. After working through all the topics they frequently are able to resolve their difficulties.
Parents who want to have a conversation with a child that is deeper and more meaningful than talk of sports and class schedules this program offers just what is needed–20 talks. It has been tested on the battlefield—a 9th grade science classroom to great effect!
The Communication Cure has been developed with the insights of the Life Model in mind as well as the stages of development and maturity. This is an excellent resource to help couples working on their marriages, parents and children, or adult children who now have children. It would also be great for teen ministries.
On The Pastor’s Weekly Keith gives his personal testimony of how the Life Model and the insights on developmental stages and maturity helped him. He also tells how he came to develop The Communication Cure. He shared that the deepest, most severe pain a person can experience is aloneness and to address that pain you need “presence” — someone with you, not words, not information…you need their presence.
Keith realized that resources need to also be experiential, to help a person connect, hence the interactive element. The human design is for connectedness and to be alone is deadly. There are many within our congregations who struggle with how to express their experiences and the deep things in their hearts and consequently, feel alone.
www.TheCommunicationCure.com is an easy to use interactive resource that simply leads you through complete conversations on relevant topics with the people that matter most to you.You can try their two most popular talks for FREE for a limited time.

The Life Model is a unifying approach to ministries of counseling, recovery, pastoral care, prayer ministry, deliverance, inner healing, child rearing, body life and health. Substance abuse recovery programs internationally are guided by the Life Model’s five principles. Because the Life Model develops strong maturity, it is widely used as a church model, particularly where people must face suffering. Missions have adopted the Life Model for restoring hurt missionary children. Almost every major ministry dealing with trauma and abuse in the USA uses the Life Model as part of their teaching. Written by James Friesen, E James Wilder, Anne Bierling, Rick Koepcke, and Maribeth Poole.
