Webinar: The Compassion Academy Did you know that it is impossible to repair a relationship without increasing your self-awareness? Self-awareness is a key factor in identifying and breaking down defensive behavior, enabling you to approach relationships differently. By fostering greater self-awareness and reducing defensiveness, you pave the way for self-forgiveness. It's through self-forgiveness that you can fundamentally transform yourself and rebuild your connection with your child.
If you have been alienated from your child, your inner self is the first relationship in need of your attention and repair. Addressing and healing your personal traumas first, allows you to reconnect with yourself, thereby creating the necessary room for a new relationship with your child to flourish.
This is why we created "The Compassion Academy."
We help you make this powerful shift within yourself so that you can show up with your alienated child from a place of compassion and self-forgiveness, rather than fear, loss, and rejection. By working on rebuilding your relationship with yourself, you learn that an unconscious victim mentality has inadvertently perpetuated the alienation in your relationship. Self-forgiveness is the key to re-establishing the connection.
This key mindset shift will help you internalize the strategies and skills needed to be able to listen with as much passion as you want to be heard and express heartfelt language to reconnect with your alienated child. We will help you in understanding that this alienation happened for you, not to you, and that it is here to show you areas where you have opportunities to grow and heal old wounds. We provide the tools to cultivate emotional closeness despite the physical distance between you and your child.
We guide you in identifying the fundamental issues your children have been experiencing and attempting to communicate with you, by teaching you how to feel heard within YOURSELF.
In this program, you will learn how to enhance your self-awareness and begin to recognize and practice emotional responsiveness rather than reactivity.
We will focus on the following skills in this webinar:
"Reconnecting with yourself is the catalyst to reconnecting with your children."
2. Webinar: What is Ambiguous Loss and Why Targeted Parents Need to Know About This to Cope with Emptiness
Parents or grandparents who are harshly cut out of their children's lives experience a painful, unresolved loss often described as "ambiguous loss." This term refers to the ongoing trauma, grief, or mourning people endure when they have experienced an open-ended loss (Boss, 1990). Those facing alienation are grappling with an open-ended loss, which is more challenging than mourning a death. With death, the absence is final, recognized by the mourner. In the ambiguous loss, the prospect of reconnection remains a reality. The intense panic and emotional pain felt by the targeted parent are real, fueled by the lingering hope that things may change someday. The grieving never ceases unless they are reunited with their children. Fantasies of reunion persist, and the targeted parent (grandparent) believes that expressing their love and missing their child might bring them back. However, this rarely works. Instead, the targeted parent (grandparent) becomes increasingly frustrated as their wishes go unfulfilled. They may fall into depression, drained by their unsuccessful attempts at reconnection. Without the certainty of reconnection with your child, the absent child remains emotionally present. As a targeted parent (grandparent), you may feel stuck in limbo, unsure whether the separation is permanent or temporary. This state of uncertainty prevents you from fully accepting the loss and moving forward with your life.
Dr. Sue created this webinar specifically for targeted (grandparents) parents like you! When a family breaks up through divorce or parental alienation, it is very difficult for any parent to believe in the permanence of the situation. It can be incredibly challenging for any parent to accept the permanence of the situation. In the case of ambiguous loss, targeted parents keep their children emotionally alive within their minds despite the absence of a physical connection. At times, it can feel like emotional torture.
