(PSYCHIATRIST, EDUCATOR, & WRITER)

Since 1972, Dr. Flowers has taught both medical students and psychiatric residents in the psychiatry departments at Stanford University Medical Center and the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Medical School. She was a volunteer faculty member at both institutions, and in 1997 UCSF promoted her to Clinical Professor of Psychiatry. Her teaching at UCSF has been recognized with the Clinical Faculty Association Special Recognition Award for Outstanding Contribution (1994) and the Henry J. Kaiser Award for Excellence (1996 and 2004).

Dr. Flowers also has taught dream interpretation as co-director of the Delaney & Flowers Dream and Consultation Center. Founded in 1981 with her co-director Dr. Gayle Delaney, The Delaney & Flowers Dream Center trains people in problem solving and the development of new ideas through the practical understanding of dreams. Drs. Delaney and Flowers use Delaney’s Dream Interview Method of dream interpretation, which places the dreamer's individuality above theory and doctrine and treats dreams as a sophisticated mode of information processing. They have made numerous television and radio presentations on dreams, and as a leader in the field, Dr. Flowers was the first Chairman of the Board for the Association for the Study of Dreams in 1984.

In 1994, Dr. Flowers used her experience as an educator and psychiatrist to develop an emotional education curriculum (Equilibrium Dynamics) designed to teach and train individuals in emotional competence. A growing body of evidence now indicates that emotional competence is a key factor in both professional and organizational success. Dr. Flowers teaches these principles to all levels of organizational management, as well as to faculties, staff, students, and parents. The students range from high-school to post-graduate levels. (See Dr. Flowers' EQDynamics presentation on YouTube.)

Linking her education and community service, Dr. Flowers chaired the Citizens Advisory Committee to the San Francisco School Board for a school superintendent search in 1994-1995.
