Dr Divett has spent almost thirty years on a quest to research and develop a Christian theory and practice that empowered people to connect with God in a way that was theologically and psychologically sound.
As a result of that quest, by 1995 she had developed the foundations of Refocussing theory (RF) and its practice Refocussing Therapy (RFT).
It provides a systematic theory and practice that empowers people with a predictable, reliable and repeatable way for people to encounter God. In this Refocussing way people will be assured of connecting to ‘God’s Empowering Presence’(a phrase borrowed from Professor Gordon Fee) so that they can then ‘Refocus’ on what God wants to: show (if visual); tell (if auditory); or sense (if tactile) so that He can reveal his healing, solutions, deliverance or resources for their ‘needs’.
Central to ‘Refocussing’ is Dr Divett’s practice, called ‘God Spaces’. By using ‘God Spaces’ people are able to: locate (find), access (experience) and develop (describe) what happens when they encounter ‘God’s Empowering Presence’, and the revelations that result. In addition, Diane, being friends with David Grove’s for many years, prior to his death in 2008, had worked with him and adapted and integrated specific aspects of his clean language process. In particular, his emphasis on using only the language, metaphors and symbols of the clients. Her adaptation of Grove’s clean language was used principally to ensure people are truly heard and listened to, thereby minimising the degree of incorrect assumptions a therapist can otherwise inadvertently impose on clients.
Diane encouraged extensive post-grad research (see a list of researchers and research), which clearly shows that people can encounter God in any, or all of His Triune persons, the Father, the Son, or the Holy Spirit. And, it is as people encounter God, revealed according to His names and characteristics, that they then experience healing, resolution and/or resources for ‘unmet, unfulfilled or maladjusted needs’ that they had previously been unable to resolve or were ‘stuck’ with.
Dr Divett has developed many interactive programmes that are designed to help people quickly refocus and ‘go where God is – not where he is not’. These are available now on DVD (see Resources) – they are very practical and easy to follow yet with life changing results; as you are provided with a simple but powerful way to connect with God, to encounter him and experience his revelation for your life.
