Ilene L. Dillon, M.S.W.
The Emotional Pro
Founder of RaiseIncredibleKids.com
With 40 years of experience helping families and parents of many cultures and descriptions, Ilene specializes in helping parents develop Incredible Kids who discover who they really are (inside), and bring that incredibleness to the world, in ways that are both effective and last lifelong.
Ilene’s approach makes “problems” with communication, manipulation, anger and resentment, self esteem, or parental emotional and behavioral responses to action, interesting “puzzles” that can be solved. She promotes partnership between parent and child, with her down-to-earth approach, use of ancient universal Principles and loving tools that support parents, children and families to help our interplanetary “visitors” get the best possible support for their life on earth. When parents Raise Incredible Kids, they become the parents they wish they had!
A pioneer in the Emotional Literacy movement, Ilene’s parent manuals, which teach parents how to help their children develop emotional literacy, were published starting in 1994. These had the title Exploring Anger With Your Child (and included manuals on the emotions of anger, grief, guilt, fear, loneliness, jealousy, and hurt). Three others were written but not published, on intimacy, shame and remorse, and love. These have now been revised, with the title The ABCs of Anger: Building Emotional Foundations for Life. Ilene is also author of CDs and books, including Happiness is a Decision of the Heart, Bouncing Back from Energy Sapping, Stop Anger Now, 4 Building Blocks of Self-Esteem, Co-Dependence: The Bottom Line, and Awaken to Your Emotions. Ilene’s ideas have been featured internationally, on King World’s The Rolonda Show, and in The San Francisco Chronicle, Care Notes, Personal Excellence, and Woman’s Day.
