Dear Abandonmates and Recovering Outer Children,

We encourage you to set up Abandonment and Outer Child Recovery groups, or to attend one of Susan’s Abandonment Recovery / Overcoming Self-Sabotage workshops.

We help each other.  Abandonment recovery is an interpersonal process — as groupmates, friends, and professionals we heal our collective abandonment wounds, help reduce primal shame, and overcome its aftermath of self sabotaging (Outer Child) patterns.  In the groups we practice powerful mental exercises that reverse self-abandonment and promote profound personal change.


Groups are an effective way to break the cycle of abandoholism – (attraction to the unavailable — one of Outer Child’s most infamous patterns) – as well as other destructive-to-relationship patterns.  If you think you’re the only one whose insecurity sabotages relationships, who suffers from low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, who is caught up in cycles of re-abandonment, who procrastinates and exhibits other Outer Child patterns of self-sabotage, think again.  Working with others about Learning to become attracted to available partners is an enormous feat for many abandonment survivors. These groups get you moving in a new direction. More about abandoholism

Creating abandonment recovery groups is as easy as following a recipe. Groups can be facilitated on a peer-to-peer basis.  An easy-to-follow self-help format and 50 topic questions are available – enough to keep your support groups running for a year or more. Become a member to download materials – as well as to Post your Groups. Membership also entitles you to download the WORKBOOK Journey from Heartbreak to Connection which guides you through hands-on exercises — Outer Child, Akeru, 12 steps of emotional and spiritual healing, S.W.I.R.L., and more.


Log in to download protocol for running professional groups (25 Professional Recipes) and to Post your Services. Also go to Professional Pages and learn about training as abandonment specialist (inclusive of Outer Child techniques).

AUTHOR’S VISITS Invite the author to come and give workshops and seminars and give onsite training . Susan Anderson handles each request individually.

Abandonment and Outer Child support groups reinforce and enhance one another’s recovery.  Sharing common experience puts positive peer pressure to work.  Coming together, abandonment survivors share their progress with the many challenges they encounter, as well as with Outer Child techniques, the SWIRL process, the Swan’s Twelve Steps of Emotional and Spiritual Healing, and the Akeru exercise program. The group provides emotional support and an opportunity to make new connections, make important breakthroughs, raise self-confidence, and make significant changes – not just internally, but in your behavior patterns!
