Building a Strong Emotional Foundation


Instructor: Jim Phillips (view profile)

There is a huge area that is overlooked in individual, family and community readiness and that is… one’s attitude and mind set.

We do classes on attitude, outlook and how to develop emotional resilience, so it is possible to bounce back when everything goes wrong.   It is much easier and safer to come to a greater understanding of how to develop a better attitude now, rather than in the midst of some long term disaster.

 Tonight’s radio show is about developing this critical faculty now, while life’s backdrop is relatively normal.

Instructor: Jim Phillips
Jim Phillips is a nationally known speaker and teacher who has professionally taught thousands of classes all across the United States for 40 years. For a number of years prior to this career, his hobby was teaching cold weather safety & survival.

Jim is a strong advocate of self-reliance living and family preparedness. He developed an entire preparedness curriculum by asking himself the question “What if?” and then setting out to discover what actually does and does not work.

The answers he seeks (and then teaches) must be based on true principles derived from first hand experience. Above all else, he believes that attitude and practical knowledge is more critical to survival than having a bunch of “stuff.”

Guest: Linda Phillips
Linda Phillips is the mother of 6 sons and 3 daughters, grandmother of 24 and great-grandmother of two (so far).  This gave her some extensive on-the-job training in stress management and family emotional development.  Yet that experience left her (and her husband) ignorant in the areas of clinical mental health areas.  Her recent professional experience has made a huge difference in her understanding in this area.

Since the fall of 2013 she has worked at the area hospital as the Behavioral Health Patient Liaison, and has become a strong local advocate for reaching out to solve as many mental health issues (big or small) while the solutions are more easily at hand.
