Heather continues her conversation with Travis Stewart, LPC – a leader in the world of Christian eating disorder treatment. In today’s episode, Heather and Travis discuss a model Travis developed to help people work through tricky emotions, thoughts, and feelings in order to process in a way that is both healthy and God-honoring. This “three chairs” model Travis developed offers a tremendous framework for us to think through the decisions and responses we have and figure out what is motivating us to respond or believe the way we do. The three chairs model includes a place for the “child self,” the “survivor/coping self,” and the “wise & trusting self.” Travis explains each of these different places we all visit and how his Three Chairs model works to help us move from living lives out fear, demand, or me-first self-protection and into hopeful desire, bold trust in God, truth and love.
