Facilitated by Karen Woodall
Every two weeks starting Tuesday 4 October 2022, 17:00 – 19:00 UK time.
The restoration of health, for rejected parents, begins with an understanding of what has happened internally and how that has become entangled with the child’s own splitting reactions. When parents are able to map this splitting across the family system, their own reactive splitting can integrate and they can begin the work of developing the healthy mirror needed by the child.
Parents who have healed reactive splitting can then learn to apply the skills of therapeutic parenting. This is an approach to parenting children who are suffering from attachment disorder due to being emotionally and psychologically harmed. Alienated children with therapeutic parents are shown, in evaluation, to be able to recover quickly from the underlying harms which have caused their rejecting behaviours.
This is a bi monthly drop in group which can be attended regularly or just as a one-off. The circles will be facilitated by psychotherapist Karen Woodall until the Christmas period of this year. Each session will focus on a particular element of therapeutic parenting for children with attachment difficulties due to divorce and separation and will comprise of 45 minute input and then an hour and 15 minutes of group discussion. Participants can attend to listen and learn and to share and receive knowledge. The basic requirement is simply curiosity about helping alienated children. The cost of each session is £40.00 (including sales tax).

Link is not working
Hi, it is being sorted out right now apologies. K
The link appears to be broken.
Fixed now K
What age group of children is the therapeutic listening circle intended?
My children are 25 and 17, neither living at home. The elder child (daughter) I am estranged from for the past two years; the latter child (son) just started college and is living there and I am not estranged from. Thank you in advance for the clarification.
all ages Sharon from little to big – we work with families where children are 40 plus, there is no age limit on the usefulness of TP. Kind Regards Karen
