Banquet Speaker

Bob Hamp, MMFT, LMFT

Bob Hamp and his wife Polly are the founders of Think Differently Counseling Consulting and Connecting Center, and the Think Differently Academy. He has been in private practice and worked in the church for a combined 25 years of practice. Besides his years of private practice and organizational consulting, he spent ten years developing a group discipleship strategy called Freedom Ministry that helped thousands of people find freedom from a broad range of struggles.

He has published three books built around the idea that changing thought process is the key component to every other type of change. His video series, Foundations of Freedom, is used worldwide to shift the way people see the Gospel, themselves and the pathway to change. He currently offers training and consulting to counselors, ministries, and businesses. He and his team offer training in facilitating freedom, leadership, teaching and communication strategies as well as organizational design.

Banquet topic: The Shame Free Brain

Considering that our brain has such an important function in our lives we seldom receive instruction in all the ways it is designed to serve us. Often we or our clients feel shame simply because we don't know the difference between character and biology. When we know that FIght, Flight or Freeze isn't failure we can spare people a lot of pain. This session provides a simple roadmap of the brain to help us all navigate our own experience with grace and power.
