Seminar Workshops

The WANT® INSTITUTE offers group instruction on the principles of communicating with personal integrity to help individuals and organizations to achieve goals of economic success, to enrich their personal and professional relationships, and to create win/win situations in every one of their day-to-day activities. Success in life is not an accident…rather, it results from the application of a learnable set of skills applied to the various economic and relationship transactions we all engage in every day. The Institute was founded to promote and teach these skills, with the goal of helping people to live authentic, successful lives, using the technique of WANT® TRAINING as developed by Dr. Pat Allen.

The WANT® TRAINING system works by helping you to avoid negative and self-destructive thought and speech patterns that create emotional bottlenecks in your personal and business relationships. It teaches you to graphicrecognize and potently deal with gaming, intimidation and seduction patterns of manipulation used on you by others. It also empowers you to to achieve your life goals through the simple but powerful technique of consistently and simply asking for what you want, and saying “No” to what you don’t want. The WANT Institute’s facilitators train and coach participants with techniques to achieve their personal and financial goals in life and to create successful interpersonal relationships by using the innovative, proven and patented WANT® TRAINING principles that allow you to “Speak Rationally, Decide Rationally, and Disagree Rationally.”

Participants of the Institute’s popular seminars and leadership communication workshops include thousands of health care professionals, marriage and family counselors, corporate executives and the public at large throughout the country. The potency of WANT® TRAINING has also been recognized by CNN, FOX News and PSI Seminars and has been endorsed by many notable celebrities including Oprah Winfrey, Rev. Michael Beckwith, Marianne Williamson, relationship lecturer Dr. John Gray and comedian-turned-psychologist Yakov Smirnoff.

Established in 1976, the WANT® INSTITUTE is a nonprofit California Corporation operating for educational, scientific and charitable purposes. The Institute is also a Federally Registered and Approved Health Care provider, National Provider Identifier (NPI) 1912034216.

The founder of INSTITUTE is Transactional Analyst and Psychotherapist Dr. Pat Allen, who has been a Marriage, Family and Child Therapist for 38 years, and is also a nationally renowned lecturer and the author of the best-selling booksGetting to “I Do,” Pat Allen, PhDgraphicStaying Married & Loving It, The Truth About Men , and Conversational Rape. She is also the developer of her concept of Duty Dating® as a therapeutical technique to allow women (and men) to successfully deal with internalized prejudices and delusions that have interfered with their ability to successfully create enduring relationships with their sexual partners. The Institute was established three decades ago as a vehicle to promote Dr. Pat Allen’s system for personal growth, WANT® TRAINING, and employs her unique patented system of Androgynous Semantic Realignment (ASR)®,a cognitive behavioral modification technique based on Dr. Eric Berne’s principles of Transactional Analysis.  Androgynous Semantic Realignment identifies the masculine/feminine energies with which an individual approaches life, and can be used by both men and women to identify and repair negative language habits. Because we think with words, changing those words changes the way we think, and directly affects the way we live and interact with others with whom we wish to have satisfying emotional relationships, or interact with effective economic success.

Using WANT® TRAINING, you can learn how to use words as potent tools to get what you want out of life.  You will learn how to communicate your needs and desires to others in a non-threatening manner, using the mutually empowering transactional technique of Amigo Talk which replaces self-destructive ploys of using threats and intimidation, or negative manipulations of guilt and seduction. By employing these potent linguistic tools to confront women and men in a respectful-cherishing way, you will discover fundamental self-esteem and restore good mental and physical health. Dr. Pat Allen promises:  “You can drive yourself sane using the same tools used to drive us crazy every day…words.”
