  ABOUT >> Dr. David Lawson

Dr David Lawson is a licensed psychologist and professor of Counseling Psychology at Palm Beach Atlantic University¹s Orlando Campus. David loves teaching people how to get in touch with their emotions and seeing constructive growth in their lives.  He accomplishes this in a number of key areas:

• Teaching people how to understand their emotions
• Preparing families and children to explore and express emotions
• Understanding how to bring emotional healing after periods of great hardship
• Understanding how feelings are tied into human sexuality
• Training other people helpers to minister God's love to hurting people
• Understanding the relationship between faith, emotions and mental health

During his 15 years of teaching, David has been privileged to speak at numerous national and international conferences as well as author and edit numerous books, articles and magazines. He recently spoke at Oxford University and regularly speaks throughout Europe and Asia.  Dr. Lawson spent 7 years working with the Department of Defense and the United States Army providing training in marriage enrichment and relationship enhancement. This expertise is evident in his development and co-teaching of the Feel Seminar (link).

As a professor of counseling and sitting on numerous Not-For-Profit boards for counseling and mental health services, David is especially interested in the relationship of the Feel project and emotions to mental health and counseling needs as well as the significance of feelings in the church. This is particularly significant since his oldest daughter has a chronic genetic illness.

David and Matthew were very excited to make a strong connection personally and in feeling passionate about the importance of emotion in the Christian life.   They have spent many hours enjoying talking together about the ways emotions functions in our lives and have many common interests.  Out of this discussion the Feel Project is growing to minister to peoples needs.
