The D.O.T. (Deepen. Orient. Transform.) model is a visually stimulating relationship tool to help individuals, couples, and organizations recognize fear-based triggers in relationships that lead to increased conflict. We can redirect these emotions from a place of scarcity into abundance, and re-balance ourselves through trust and curiosity. The D.O.T. model is a standalone teachable template that invites each of us― when we are feeling trapped or frozen― to come back to a sense of connection with each other and ourselves. It is designed so we learn how to re-center without using anything on the outside changing to fit our needs. It is a re-orienting “compass” that identifies polarizing relationships and where one fits in those polarities. Using a catchy visual and simple recipe for each polarity/archetype we embody in negative interactions; it teaches us how to get back to the humanness of heart and reconnect to those around us in a meaningful way.
Used with a variety of populations, this model will help with any kind of relationship to support a new understanding of when we are caught in compassion-fatigue cycles instead of inspiring connections. As everyone remembers their curiosity, more positive effects are evident around us, within our own reactive patterns, and in the group dynamics of our family, friendship, and professional circles. The model reminds us of the positive effects we are all having on each other and ourselves.
This might be overwhelming to look if you've never seen the DOT model. It is meant more to be available for those who have already seen a demonstration of the DOT model.
