CHANGING LIVES IN ITALY AND CROATIA
“It was the best moment of my life; from now I’m in the process of true healing.”
“You are a revolutionary man, therapist, brother, and guide. You changed Italy, and you changed me.”
“In my healing journey, I went to different seminars and read many books. Every time it was as if I gained a piece of the puzzle. In the Counselor Training Program, I received all the pieces together in the right order, and now the puzzle is complete!”
“I learned how to deal with identity conflicts and emotional/sexual brokenness. Now I have renewed hope.”
These are just a few of the reflections for the Counselor Training Program and Healing Seminar that took place in Milan, Italy on May 9-11 and May 17-18. Over sixty, from all over Italy, participated at each event. Now they are taking this life-changing information and helping others in need. Next year we will return to Italy and continue part II of the training, while several are beginning the certification process at this time to become sexual orientation coaches with IHF.
On May 22nd and May 23rd respectively, I spoke in the cities of Split and Zagreb, Croatia for the release of all three my books (see the flyer and photos). It was exciting as professors, therapists, clergy, and concerned citizens gathered to learn more about homosexuality and the possibility of change. “I have been a psychiatrist for fifty years, and absolutely everything you said was true,” a gentleman stated after the talk in Zagreb. I was also invited back next year to conduct our Counselor Training Program to therapists, clergy, and others in Croatia.
It was very exciting for my wife, Jae Sook, and I to see many lives impacted by our work of 24 years and how IHF is expanding worldwide. In September, we will offer our Counselor Training Program in Mexico City. Please contact our office for more information.
