Equilibrium Dynamics
November 21, 2011

I cont. to grow from the exposure to the EQD curriculum. The last few months have added a lot to my effectiveness in my job setting using EQD as a way of structuring a pilot program to improve our relationship to law enforcement, for example.
I have had occassion to use it as well to work on changes to increase my healthy habits and decrease habits that undermine my health, using the support of personal relationships and the self responsibility portion of the curriculum. The applications of this curriculum are endless.

I have volunteered with EQD as well as donated to the organization. I have been so moved by the mission of teaching emotional competence that I have begun to train as a coach and apply the skill to various settings, including my own profession as a psychiatrist. We have used the skills in teaching MDs how to find balance and care for themselves, as well as teens in an at risk HS who are making decisions every day that shape their future, often driven by impulses and emotions they don't acknowledge or understand.

Have applied the skills to myself in a personal way to achieve goals of losing weight, have more balance in my life, uncover my passion and live more healthfully. I think the curriculum has been helpful for more deliberate planning of my work life, keeping me from being too scattered in my interests.

Give EQD some grant money to write a book that could be used to popularize these ideas, as well as train another group of coaches.

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & Most recently particpated in the training of 7 coaches in the School of Public health at UCLA. They will be using the skills to further campaigns for health equity in minority communities. .
