JIMTalks Vol 28-Food and Attachment With God (audio) by:Jim Wilder
Both the Old and New Testaments use strong words for attachment with God that suggest we are to “glue” ourselves to God. Brain science says that joy, peace, appreciation and, oddly enough, being fed are forms of strengthening attachment. While most Life Model students are familiar with joy, peace and appreciation this volume takes us deeply into how God presents Himself as the “one who feeds us” across the Bible. When attachment goes wrong we become attached to the food instead of to the feeder. Attachment to food instead of the feeder is common in the books of Moses and the stories of Jesus. Jesus goes so far as to use food as part of healing traumatic memories. Salvation is not so much about escaping hell as about forming this new attachment with the God who feeds us. Did you ever consider that the closest thing to “milk and honey” is ice cream? When food becomes our attachment the joy is soon diminished. Learn to use your food to attach to Joy again.

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.

Bonding and Dissociation 3 DVD Set (video) by:E James Wilder
These breakthrough presentations by Dr. Jim Wilder brought the “decade of the brain” and the work of Dr. Allan Schore to the trauma recovery field. It was obvious from that point on that Dissociation and Borderline disorders both arose from trauma, however dissociation could happen in one generation while borderline required two generations of trauma. The implications for treatment and recovery are spelled out in these three videos. The principles outlined in these three DVDs have become central to the 19 personality formation skills taught at the THRIVE Changing My Generation Conference. These Live Model principles also form the backbone of the Thriving Recover Your Live program for traumas and addictions.
