Therapy for Adult Children of Alcoholics and/or Dysfunctional Families

Do you recognize yourself in these feelings and behaviors, often identified in the ACA (Adult Children of Alcoholics) Laundry List? These traits, while common among those who have grown up in alcoholic or dysfunctional families, can significantly impact your emotional well-being and relationships. You are not alone in this journey. Many who have experienced similar environments face these challenges, and therapy offers a pathway to understanding, healing, and empowerment.

Understanding and Overcoming ACA Traits with ACT

In our therapy sessions at Bydand Therapy, we work with you to understand the impact of these traits on your life and develop strategies to manage and overcome these challenges. Our approach incorporates Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), which emphasizes:

  • Mindful Acceptance: Learning to accept your experiences and emotions without judgment, understanding how your past has shaped you.
  • Values Exploration: Identifying your core values and understanding how they can guide your healing process and personal growth.
  • Committed Action: Empowering you to take actions that align with your values, fostering a stronger, more independent sense of self.

Building Resilience and Healthier Relationships

Our therapeutic process is geared towards helping you learn healthier ways of relating to yourself and others. We focus on building resilience and a stronger sense of self, independent of your past experiences. This involves:

  • Developing Healthier Coping Strategies: Overcoming compulsive behaviors and dependency issues.
  • Managing Reactions to Changes: Finding healthier ways to adjust to changes and reducing the need for constant approval.
  • Reframing Self-Identity: Cultivating a sense of identity that is autonomous and not overly tied to others.
