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.
I had the great pleasure to sit in on a dream interpretation workshop facilitated by Jabari Jones MD. Dr. Jones presented a well-informed, educational, and insightful workshop on the importance of dreams in reaching one's full potential by exploring the unconscious meaning of dreams and how our dreams contain valuable information about our fears, wishes, conflicts, and emotions. I walked away with a solid foundation with the process of analyzing and interpreting my dreams through the EQD model. I've since used this model and it has significantly reduced stress and anxiety in waking life, helped me gain insight into conflicts, unhealthy relationships, life goals and healthier ways of living.
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!
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!
Equilibrium Dynamics provided excellent and professional trainings to our school. They were a very well-run organization that made it easy to communicate with and get set up with a training that fit our students' needs. Thank you, EQ, for your generosity and sharing your knowledge with our community!
Dr Flowers was an essential piece in the NP residency to help me recognize the skills in my toolbox, to optimize my emotional competency, and in term improve patient care outcomes in the community. - Bahare
Dr. Flowers and the EQD team has improved my organization's capacity to serve young people and their families. We partnered with EQD for several years to educate and train our young people, their parents and the program staff. Our clients experienced growth and transformation in each session- I can't remember any wasted time! The unexpected gift of the relationship is that I believe I received more than the clients in my own personal development. If I could, I would have them for personal/professional coaching on a weekly basis. Thank you Equilibirum Dynamics!
Dr. Flowers and Equilibrium Dynamics helped our large, diverse public health center staff productively discuss issues relating to workplace safety and group cohesion during a full day retreat. Her intelligent and skillful approach helped everybody feel well heard and encouraged productive engagement/discussion. The positive impact has helped us to make needed changes and build a healthier community.
I'm a recent participant in a 6-month training with Equilibrium Dynamics on Emotional Competency. This program has exceeded my expectations for several reasons. First, the tools offered are extremely practical and the training provides a platform for learning how to employ the tools for the right situation. I always leave the training with a few key phrases or concepts that can help guide me in staying grounded and evaluating my circumstances in a way that will help me make choices for the best outcomes. Second, Dr. Loma Flowers, who facilitates the training, brings a wealth of experience and also very hands-on, practical perspectives on emotional competency. I don't have a background or formal training in psychology, thus the practical approach is helpful to me. Finally, I find the supportive nature of the class environment extremely helpful for me in dissecting scenarios and situations in my own life to learn and become more emotionally competent. We all have a chance to share on the topics being discussed, which I find helpful. I learn from dissecting my own experiences as well as hearing from others and helping them dissect their scenarios as well. This is extremely valuable training for those who are leadership roles professionally, or who simply want to have mastery over their own lives.
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!
