SPEAKING TOPICS

THE LITURGY OF MARRIAGE: Building your relationship with the Rite stuff
You are welcome to choose any one or a combination of chapter topics for a single presentation, a half-day or full-day workshop, or a multiple-day retreat. The book has been very well received over the last year since being published and now you can have Dr. and Mrs Heck present on the book in a way that will truly bring it alive.

THE PSYCHOLOGY OF CONVERSION: What takes so long?

Dr. Heck’s Story of Coming into the Catholic Church. In this talk we will explore some of the psychological issues at work that often play a key part in holding someone back from coming into the faith or converting to Catholicism.

WHEN DEPRESSION HITS HOME
Depression is an illness that knows no boundaries. In this talk, Dr. Heck explains the difference between the types of depression and the most effective treatments. Christians are not immune from this condition and should become more informed so we can encourage and support those who live under this shadow.

BIPOLAR DISORDER: Living life in the extremes
Those who have been diagnosed with or who are living with someone diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder or some form of the condition, know something of how challenging this illness can be for everyone involved. Dr. Heck provides a more thorough, compassionate, and practical approach to how this mood disturbance can be understood and treated.

SURVIVING THE ADOLESCENT PARENTING YEARS
Parenting changes throughout the development of our children, but particularly during those adolescent years of significant emotional, physical, psychosocial and spiritual change. In this presentation you will discover a better understanding of what is happening in the world of your teen and how you can get through these years without sacrificing your relationship with the adolescent, your marriage or your sanity.

WHEN THE "BLENDED FAMILY" ISN'T BLENDING
The complexion of family life has altered considerably over the last fifty years. We have an obligation to be sensitive to and supportive of these reconstructed families and they desperately need our encouragement and help. Dr. Heck understands blended families from his years of clinical work, but also from his own experience in a blended family.

COMMON THREADS IN PSYCHOLOGY AND CHRISTIANITY
In past decades you would never have heard of such a thing as a psychological provider integrating Christian faith into the work. Now we are seeing graduate programs around the country offering solid preparatory programs for licensed providers to offer the best of clinical care within a framework of our Christian faith. This talk focuses on this history and the common threads in the two disciplines.
