This master’s project explores one woman’s journey in applied creativity and how learning behaviors and skills became the impetus for her life’s work with domestic abuse survivors. It is from this journey, that a groundbreaking Global Longitudinal Empirical Study with sustainable arm was developed.
This Empirical research is the Freedom Impact Study with Freedom Model that was founded on the Emotional Quotient Inventory 2.0 psychometric measure, the Applied Creativity sciences, and the self-defense training system Pure Krav Maga™. Its sustainable arm is Freedom Global, a 10-day intensive training program for women from other countries to be trained in applied creativity and instructor certified in Pure Krav Maga so they can conduct the Freedom Impact Study in their respective countries.
The background, development, and proposed next steps are presented herein; along with the findings from the Freedom Impact Study’s Pilot Inquiry that was executed in October 2012.
