Is ACA therapy?
No, although it can be very therapeutic to attend. Therapy and the ACA program can work hand-in-hand and neither one should be considered a substitute for the other. Many members are referred to ACA by therapists and social workers to help them work through childhood issues.
Do I have to identify myself or say anything in an ACA meeting?
We identify ourselves by first names only to preserve our anonymity. Whether you say anything further about yourself is up to you. If you attend a meeting where they go around the room taking turns sharing, and you do not want to share, just say ‘pass’. Otherwise you can just listen.
Open meetings are open to guests, friends and relatives of adult children as well as observers. This can include those in the education or the psychology field doing research. Those meetings not listed Closed are all Open.
Closed meetings are limited to individuals who identify themselves as ACA’s, or those trying to decide if ACA could be something of value for them.
The websites listed below are excellent places to go for an extensive array of resources and information.
