WELCOME TO THE COMMUNITY
Parental Alienation Anonymous is a group of parents, grandparents, step parents, family members and other folks that are alienated, estranged or erased from their families. We are a peer to peer run support group, an education portal and a advocacy group.
We have meetings every day of the week to support you along this incredible challanging and heart breaking journey. Most of the meetings are on zoom with some in-person meetings forming. The wonderful thing about this program is it’s free and most importantly it’s an empowerment program. It empowers all of us to take our lives back one day at a time.
The community is made of of folks all over the PA bell curve. Some folks have no contact with their loved ones, some have partial contact and some are reunited and navigating the challenges that reunification creates.
WHAT IS PARENTAL ALIENATION?
Parental alienation is a set of strategies that a parent uses to foster a child’s rejection of the other parent(the targeted parent). Parental alienation develops in children who come to hate, fear, and reject the targeted parent as someone unworthy of having a relationship with them.
Parental Alienation affects hundreds of thousands of families around the world. For most folks, there is no real support system. Parental alienation anonymous or PA-A Is a 12 step program that is adapted from Allanon to help folks struggling with parental alienation, estrangement and erasure. Allanon has proven incredible successful over the last 80 years in people struggling with a variety of challenges within the family system.
This group is for parents, alienated adults, grandparents, aunts, uncles, children, and any other family members that have been affected by this pathology. Folks In all stages are welcome.
WHAT IS PARENTAL ALIENATION ANONYMOUS (PA-A.ORG)?
Parental alienation anonymous is a support, education and advocacy group. We are a community that supports folks struggling with PA, PAS, estrangement and any form of alienation. We differ from other 12 steps group as we have seven foundational trainings that support emotional and spiritual recovery in the context of the 12 steps. The seven foundational trainings are, non-violent communication (NVC), meditation, The Work (Byron Katie), family systems theory, resilience training, somatic/breath work/inner child work and boundary setting.
PA-A (Parental Alienation Anonymous) is a fellowship that offers a program of recovery for the families and friends of ALIENATORS whether or not the alienator recognizes the existence of a problem or seeks help. Members give and receive comfort and understanding through a mutual exchange of experience, strength, and hope. Sharing of similar problems binds individuals and groups together in a bond that is protected by a tradition of anonymity.
PA-A (Parental Alienation Anonymous) is not a religious organization or a counseling agency. It is not a treatment center nor is it allied with any other organization offering such services. PA-A Family Groups neither express opinions on outside issues nor endorses outside enterprises. No dues or fees are required. Membership is voluntary, requiring only that one’s own life has been adversely affected by someone else’s alienating behavior problem.
What are community members saying about PA-A (parental alienation anonymous) 12 step meetings?
“This is the first time I am in a group of people where I do not have to explain anything I am talking about. Everybody understands what I am saying and the words I am using. There is so much relief in that.”
“I have met some incredible people in the zoom meetings. I now have friends I text and talk within between meetings. I do not feel so isolated and alone more and more often.”
“I go to other 12 step meetings that are great, but this meeting fills a deep need to be connected with others that are struggling with the same reality. The steps have been magical in other programs. I am so excited to start working them in this program.”
“I came to PA-A to get some help with my family problems, that is all I really wanted. I came to several meetings before I learned that I am part of the problem. I had to focus my attention on myself and start working on my own issues, I feel so much more hope and freedom because of it. First and foremost this program is about me, once I have a healthier and more grounded relationship with myself then I believe I will be ready to transform all my relationships especially with my kids.”
“My sponsor is a god send. It’s amazing that someone is willing to support me in such a gracious and kind way. I am slowly learning how to have a healthy relationship with myself and others”
