What Keeps Us Ticking offers a useful answer to the human nature or personhood question: “Who am I?” We have the experience of being a person and not simply brain and body processes. What Keeps Us Ticking identifies this experiencing as being felt by our real, though immaterial, person who then utilizes the brain and body to function as a whole person. Clearly knowing who we really are has personal applications and benefits. Our immaterial person, living through a brain and body, is not only what keeps us ticking, but is also who can effectively activate our whole person choices. (Available on Amazon)
Person and Character Level Life Coaching and Mentoring is unique in both its starting point and its primary focus. This approach is based upon a structural view of human nature that is informed by psychological and philosophical ideas and a theological perspective. First, we establish the understanding that the immaterial soul is the person. Then we use this understanding to work on virtues and character development related positive change. Strengthened character leads to being better able to: detach from problems (self-distancing), have increased confidence in the ability to succeed with personal changes (self-efficacy), and make choices that positively affect the whole person.

Person and Character Level Life Coaching and Mentoring Training and Practice Resources has been developed as a companion to Dr. Morgan’s Person and Character Level Life Coaching and Mentoring book. This resource contains additional training information and tools for practice. It continues the expanded paradigm of the immaterial soul-person and the material body being two distinct yet connected parts of the whole person. The same Person and Character Level Model of change is utilized, emphasizing a present focus and positive outcomes: character strengthening, improved quality of relating, and the effective use of actions in practical situations — with the naturally resulting improvements to coping and resilience. Though having non-clinical goals and interventions, accepted practice procedures are incorporated to provide a method for intentionally and effectively encouraging others through the process of change.

Life in Process effectively balances principles from the 12-Step model of change with biblical truth and genuine relationship. You will be encouraged to rise above your current self-understanding and faith — revealing your own life story and empowering you to make changes that profoundly impact your future — in order to grow into a person of strengthened character and resilience.

Human nature and suffering are primary issues that counselors and mentors face with every client, in every session, on every day spent in practice. As such, well thought-out and developed understandings of human nature and suffering are essential for anyone who ventures into the task of listening to and supporting another person. In The Soul That Waits Eagerly, Dr. Dennis Morgan examines these two key issues and offers insights from his four decades of experience in the field of counseling. The Soul That Waits Eagerly offers Christian perspectives on these prominent life issues and an encouragement toward waiting with eager expectation.
