PA-A.org (Parental Alienation Anonymous)
PA-A is a support group for people struggling with alienation form their children, grand children, parents and other members of their extended family. These meetings are for sharing our stories, struggles, and victories.

It is for people on all parts of this journey; for people that have no contact, limited contact, or in recovery and rebuilding their relationships. We are all struggling in unique ways. Our struggles all have common intersections and it is this that brings us together to start the healing process.

Some people think once their alienated child or family member is back in their lives that all is smooth sailing but this is a life long journey. By building this support group we will learn how to heal and thrive as a community.

Parental alienation support group meeting

Link visible for attendees

Welcome to the Parental Alienation 12 step support group. WE are very excited to have you as part of our community.

It is suggested to try 5-6 support group meetings before you make a decision if the meetings are supportive and useful to you. There are several meetings during the week with slightly different topics.

This is an open meeting of PA-A.org where we each get to share our stories focusing on experience, strength and hope.

If you feel like you are always explaining your alienation story, if you fell that close family and friends don't really get it, if you are looking for a safe place to have a shared reality with other folk struggling and if you are looking for tools to support and resource yourself this is a great meeting for you.

The meetings over the last several months have been transformative for me. I have friends now that understand what I am going through and there is no need to explain my vocabulary. There is someone that is or has gone through the same thing as me. I am not isolating as much and feel resourced to show up in my life to a degree I haven't felt in along time.

If you are new to support group meetings I will give you a 2 minute narrative of what to expect. You click on the zoom link with or without a camera on. We all have different needs for safety in a new group so some might opt to sit quietly with their cameras on or off and others jump right in and participate.

There is a meeting leader and secretary that run the meeting. The leader reads an intro and then shares on PA or a related topic for 3-5 minutes. After that there is a quick secretary report and then the meetings is opened for all to share. Some folks share, some folks just listen, there is no wrong or right way.

These are opening meeting for parents, step parents, grand parents, uncles, aunts and any other family or friends struggling with any form of alienation.

Please message me with any questions [masked] or go to pa-a.org to register for meeting times, locations and links

I suggest coming 10minutes early to hang out informally before the meeting starts. It a great time to connect and hopefully chuckle a couple of times.

If you are new to support group meetings I will give you a 2 minute narrative of what to expect. We meet at a local park or on zoom, folks bring chairs, blankets to sit on or just show up on zoom with or without a camera on, we form a small circle (with enough space for everyones personal and CDC covid comfort when in person). We all have different needs for safety in a new group so some might opt to sit outside of the circle.

Parental alienation anonymous and non violent communication practice group

Parental alienation anonymous (PAA) and Non-violent communication (NVC) support group.

Overview of group

NVC (nonviolent communication) is an empathy-based form of communication. If practiced it transforms every relationship in our lives, starting with our relationship to ourselves. We are not conditioned to be good listeners. Generally, we are more interested in what we have to say, fixing or saving someone else and in protecting our ideas and constructs. This inhibits us from really hearing ourselves and others. NVC gives us a framework to transform how we communicate and engage with every person in our lives.

There are 4 basic stages to working with and understanding NVC. Observations, feelings, needs & requests.

1-Observations
Instead of listening to someone’s story or narrative we practice listening to what they are actually trying to communicate by trying to understand their feelings and needs.

2-Feelings
We use discernment to try and uncover our own feelings or another’s.

3-Needs
Under every feeling is a need we are trying to meet. For example, I can be feeling anxious because I have a need for safety.

4-Requests
Once I identify me needs or others it is important to discern if any action is needed. In the example above I figured out I was anxious because I had a need for safety. My request might be “can we please leave this restaurant”.

WHY IS THIS SO IMPORTANT FOR FOLKS STRUGGLING WITH PARENTAL ALIENATION?

Stuffed and stored emotions block the life force in our bodies. This is especially true with folks struggling with any form of parental alienation and/or as estrangement. These blockages interfere with our ability to fully engage life’s joys and obstacles. In order to be fully present and available in every conversation and form of communication we have to start resolving some of these internal and external coping mechanisms. Our kids, grandkids and all others in our lives will be the beneficiaries of us cultivating these new skills.

This level 1 group will focus on needs, feelings and ultimately requests. As we share our feelings, recognize our needs and then ask for our needs to be met(request), the emotional blockages are released and we can engage life in a new and meaningful way. As we learn to understand our own needs and feelings we can finally start understanding what others are needing and felling as well.

“When our emotions are free to flow everything becomes possible”
Please google NVC (non violent communication) if you are not familiar with it. It is an empathy based form of communication which when used will transform relationships.

If you are interested in participating in this free group please send us a message through the contact page. or private message me on meet up.
