With 1 in 3 Yavapai County youth choosing to use drugs and alcohol to deal with stress and not feel sad, there is cause for concern in our community.
The Emotional Intelligence (EQ) movement is changing the dynamics of how we prepare children for the challenges of life. EQ is the capacity to be aware of, control, and express one's emotions, and to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathetically. It is linked to better academic performance; improved attitudes and behaviors; reduction in negative behaviors; and increased emotional stability.
Join Doug Dolan, COO of Recovery in the Pines and Spartan Recovery, as he discusses the importance of and link between emotional intelligence and mental wellness, as well as ways to improve both in our lives.
Doug has worked extensively with substance abuse and mental health patients since 2012. He has been active on several committees including various MATFORCE committees and Prescott's committee for oversight of structured sober living homes. He is currently developing a program to implement in high schools and colleges to teach students, faculty and counselors the importance of emotional intelligence (EQ) and mental wellness.
