About Dr. Arlene Q Allen
In formats from intensives of 24 hours to five consecutive 24 hour days, Dr. Arlene Q. elicits people’s highest and assists them to add additional paradigms, additional way of seeing themselves, others and situations.
The process is highly interactive and individualized. The resulting expanded set of choices releases creativity and additional approaches. The model that underlies these results is a distillation based in a set of internally consistent working assumptions about our human nature and functioning.
The distillation includes elements of the theories and practices supporting Reevaluation Counseling, the Human Awareness Institute, the International Professional Surrogates Association, and Quantum Learning. The set of internally consistent working assumptions about our human nature and functioning that Dr. Arlene Q. believes includes that as individuals, we are all born (unless we’ve had a very, very tough time in utero with resulting fore-brain damage) with vast resources of touchability, intelligence, creativity, lovability, a clear sense of justice, curiosity, hope and zest and with the ability to heal. In very young human beings these qualities are frequently easier to see. As we (1) grow up, (2) get emotionally hurt and (3) don’t have the information and resources to separate what happened from these hurts, fewer and fewer of these innate human qualities remain flexible, apparent and accessible. The wonderful thing is that people who don’t believe any of it are still able to use the tools and have the full creative fun of learning and getting results.
& Still Growing
For more than the past three decades, Dr. Arlene Q. has developed her skills
around touch and communication
around integrating thinking and emotion
around the power of nurturing visions and
around empowering others.
A major impetus to enhancing her communication skills arrived with second grade. She commuted from Harlem, her economically poor, all black neighborhood in New York City’s Manhattan to attend the then all white Hunter College Elementary School on the wealthy, Upper East Side of Manhattan. The excellent classical/renaissance education equipped her for many academic adventures, including a double minor in Art and Communications while achieving her baccalaureate in Economics from Hunter College. Her latest academic accomplishment and growth experience, with the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality incorporated in 1976 in San Francisco California, is her Doctorate in Human Sexuality.
