If you grew up with an emotionally immature, unavailable, or selfish parent, you may have lingering feelings of anger, loneliness, betrayal, or abandonment. You may recall your childhood as a time when your emotional needs were not met, when your feelings were dismissed, or when you took on adult levels of responsibility in an effort to compensate for your parent’s behavior. These wounds can be healed, and you can move forward in your life.
In this breakthrough book, clinical psychologist Lindsay Gibson exposes the destructive nature of parents who are emotionally immature or unavailable. You will see how these parents create a sense of neglect, and discover ways to heal from the pain and confusion caused by your childhood. By freeing yourself from your parents’ emotional immaturity, you can recover your true nature, control how you react to them, and avoid disappointment. Finally, you’ll learn how to create positive, new relationships so you can build a better life.
Discover the four types of difficult parents:
The emotional parent instills feelings of instability and anxiety
The driven parent stays busy trying to perfect everything and everyone
The passive parent avoids dealing with anything upsetting
The rejecting parent is withdrawn, dismissive, and derogatory
Dialectical behavior therapy is an evidence-based psychotherapy that began with efforts to treat borderline personality disorder. There is evidence that DBT can be useful in treating mood disorders, suicidal ideation, and for change in behavioral patterns such as self-harm, and substance abuse. Wikipedia

Parental Alienation is a worldwide problem with very little support to help us through it, that is why earlier this year I launched Emotional Healing Retreat
Our other site http://parentalalienation-pas.com has been running for over 5 years now. This site is all about a very large global group of people who have been through, or are currently going through Parental Alienation.
I am also one of the founders of NAAP National Association of Alienated Parents.
I receive many emails, letters and phone calls and have helped people struggling and desperate to find a way to deal with this growing problem. I am a qualified Reiki Master (7 years) and can help people through using the body’s own natural healing processes develop emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being.
Some of us have been previously married to people with NPD who have used the children/grandchildren as a weapon to try to control. Others have been estranged for financial reasons, and some for no reason at all!!
We are not Doctors or experts but have been through enough to share our experiences and maybe help others to gain a better understanding of how to manage and deal with Parental Alienation.
Some of us are healed, some of us are healing and some of us are not quite sure where we are!
The more we share, the more we understand, the more we understand the easier it is to deal with. Knowledge is a wonderful thing, that is why we decided to launch our Emotional Healing Retreat in France.
Taking care of your body and mind is the first part of the solution.
