Dr. Karl and Charlotte Lehman
This website, provided by Christian psychiatrist Karl Lehman, MD and pastoral counselor Charlotte Lehman MDiv (husband/wife team), provides a wealth of free downloadable documents about emotional healing, in topics ranging from bipolar disorder to psychological defenses to deliverance to spiritual disciplines. The Lehmans report that they have found the THRIVE and LIFE Model teaching to be very valuable, and they have been using it in their ministry increasingly. This influence is already seen in their DVD/VHS teaching on capacity, and is starting to make its way into their writings as well
