Therapy Thoughts-Emotional Intelligence. An audio interview.

So you have a high IQ, so you’ve got “street smarts”.  Maybe you even pride yourself on your artistic, musical or even spiritual intelligence, but how Emotionally Intelligent are you?  How do you respond to anxiety?  How does your son or daughter respond?   What can you do if you’re not proud of how you react under stress?  The first step in change, the first step in growth, the first step in grace is awareness.

Check out the three audio recording interviews with Pastor Chip Sauer from Community Reformed Church in Charlevoix, Michigan.  We discuss what Emotional Intelligence is, and how we ALL can grow as individuals, as leaders and as communities.

Jake Tracy is the counselor at the Petoskey practice Real Life Counseling of Northern Michigan, dedicated to helping teens and their parents thrive!
