Equilibrium Dynamics did a 3-part Emotional Intelligence series for our organization this summer. The trainers were engaging and offered relatable content for my staff that challenged their emotional maturity. We also got a chance to dive deeper on professional and personal experiences that we had never shared before. That's the type of space and environment EDQ creates. Our self-care is now at the forefront of every staff meeting now. We are even planning a staff retreat this Fall. Thanks to EQD, we now have polished emotional capacity and skills to help serve our youth.
During our first experience with Dr. Flowers in our training, I was daunted by how much I was not comfortable with after reading her manual. The concepts were easy to understand but the idea of executing them with your own clients took more skills, practice and awesome guidance with Dr. Flowers and her team. The group who I trained with were exceptional professionals in the field and gaining experience with me. Because I was able to open up with my struggles with my own clients, the training was much more useful, and I was able to really gain insight as to how others were using it. I used Equilibrium Dynamics in the field of nutrition and nutrition counseling. At first, I was weary of how I can integrate the two along with pre-existing counseling methods but at the end of the program, I was more confident that I can do it, and I can use this skill to increase my abilities to help my clients with overweight, portion control, eating healthier, etc... I have also found myself to use the skills more in my own life where it now an every day thing. To be conscious of certain things in life. It has definitely changed the way I have view facebook. :)
Loma did a private workshop for our playgroup, and there were so many bits of wisdom I went away with, as well as wanting to dig in more deeply. My husband and I had a lot to talk about regarding raising our son and our marriage. The biggest impact the workshop had on me was remembering that I'm raising my child to be an adult, so depending on the adult I'm hoping he'll be, I should gear opportunities and lessons towards that goal. (She also was honest about us having lots of wiggle room to not be perfect, but be honest with our kids!).
I am writing to give my comment of Equilibrium Dymanics. I have been to 3+ of their various workshops and feel that my option is valid and significant. Their workshops are great and no matter how many that I go to they are always helpful and insiteful into me understanding more about myself and emotional development. Dr. Flowers and her staff really care and are professional women who are very pleasent and not only work well with other people (of any age and background), Flowers experience lends her to enable people to open up and feel safe in group settings. From Stress management to (3)Emotional Balance any and everyone would benefit from their services and I am proud to be apart of it and hope to see it expand!
