My program encourages under-represented master's students of color on to the doctorate. We have been extraordinarily successful, particularly since we now include Dr. Flowers and Equilibrium Dynamics as an integral part of our work. In particular, we hold a doctoral student retreat for our alumni that attracts doctoral students of color from around the country. It is mainly centered on Dr. Flowers' philosophy and strategies for coping and thriving. The participants love it and report being renewed and more confident about completing their degrees!
I reached out to Dr. Loma Flowers at Equilibrium Dynamics because my college-age daughter was sexually assaulted on her university campus in Chicago. I was desperate to help my daughter and my family understand and deal with the aftermath of the assault. It was clear after my first session with Dr. Flowers that she is one of the most gifted psychiatrists and life coaches on the planet. She listens with a keen ear and is able to make an assessment regarding issues that are apparent as well as those that lie below the surface. She is compassionate, incredibly discerning and surefooted. Her questions are to the point and always encourage me to work harder to make sense of stubborn, deeply rooted issues. My daughter and I read her “Emotional Competence Education and Training” book over a weekend and it was life-changing. We found it to be insightful, while extending straightforward and practical advice. Dr. Flowers has helped me and my family immensely. My call to her is one of the best I’ve ever made! We are deeply grateful!
I had a wonderful time both personally and professionally participating in Equilibrium Dynamics' Emotional Competence Course. The facilitators have expert knowledge and created a welcoming space that encouraged growth. In addition, the final EQ-i workplace report was very thorough and provided concrete information to drive further growth. I would highly recommend Equilibrium Dynamics to promote Emotional Competence as a workplace team, individual professional development, and personal growth.
I have enjoyed serving on the Board of Equilibrium Dynamics and watching the growth and development of this fine non-profit organization since its inception. I have been impressed with the dedication, creativity and hard work that have gone into the development of workshops, teaching modules and materials generated by Dr. Flowers and her associates at EqD to support the learning and success of students and professionals from disadvantaged communities. It feels great to play a small part in an organization which is developing solutions to one of our divided nation's major problems.
This organization continues to have a great impact on the lives of people of various backgrounds and education levels, including parents of vulnerable teens, teens experiencing significant life trauma, minority medical students and graduate students. I'm excited to see how their new online Feeling Management Course will widen their reach, and help numerous people lead healthier lives, and maintain healthier relationships and careers.
Dr. Flowers has used emotional competence teaching to empower medical students at UCSF, including myself years ago, to leverage their relationships, life experiences, and emotions for their success. Through Equilibrium Dynamics she and her team are reaching out to our community, especially underserved communities, to empower children, parents, students, and professionals in their relationships and careers. I'm always in awe at how much of an impact her teachings on emotional intelligence have on everyone who has the opportunity to complete her course.
This organization does amazing work! The information they share is life changing.
I have had the privilege of working with Dr. Flowers for many years. She is a masterful teacher, breaking down the most complex topics in emotional intelligence and making them accessible to all. She uses her humor, insight and great wisdom to work with students and to inspire hope. With Equilibrium Dynamics, she has harvested the experience of her impressive career, and developed a program to teach others her skills. The 6 month training program is superb. I can't recommend her programs highly enough. Equilibrium Dynamics is truly inspirational.
The training course in emotional competency training was superb! It had solid foundation and was very practical and pragmatic. I use what I learned all the time in my practice.
At our request, Drs. Flowers and Thomas-Squance provided a well-written, comprehensive article about their work for an educational publication distributed to postgradutate medical trainees. We were hoping to give our readers some basic information about the field and it's utility in their clinical practices. The article far exceeded expectations by being concise, organized, on-target, and very interesting. We expect a great deal of positive feed-back about their disciplne and their program.
Equilibrium Dynamics (EquiD) is an amazing program that focuses on helping clients learn emotional competence for primarily young adults (teenage, college students). The program developed by Dr. Loma Flowers, provides the tools necessary to enable people to be able to express feelings, emotions in a clear, concise manner and fosters more mature relationships. Our current educational system ignores this important concept. This would be a valuable program to incorporate into all levels of our educational system.
