Based on the handbook for parents, Understanding parental alienation: Learning to cope, helping to heal by Karen Woodall and Nick Woodall (Charles C Thomas, 2017), this one-day workshop will provide parents with the knowledge to help them to understand the dynamics that have led to their child's withdrawal, and the insights and skills to build strategies for change, and bring healing for themselves and their children.
The Family Separation Clinic has adapted therapeutic parenting strategies to meet the needs of alienated children and this workshop is designed to teach you to become confident in parenting your children therapeutically. It has long been said that the best therapist for alienated children is their own healthy parent and this workshop enables you to become skilled in all aspects of parenting therapeutically to bring your children back to health.
Drawing upon extensive clinical knowledge in working directly with alienated children and their families, this one day practitioner training is designed to equip the practitioner who wishes to work in this field with a first level training which is in line with international standards of intervention. The training examines the research evidence and the translation of this into family law and includes case studies from practice.
