Whilst parental alienation is a much more widely recognized phenomenon than it once was, it remains a controversial subject. However, what is incontrovertible is that, for some children, the dynamics around the separation of their parents is so disturbing that they respond by aligning with one and completely rejecting the other. This is not only a bewildering and frightening experience for a rejected parent, it can cause significant and lasting harm to a child.


Through exploring children’s experiences, family dynamics and transgenerational patterns of estrangement, this workshop will provide you with a deeper understanding of how alienation occurs and how it has manifested itself in your family. It will also provide you with practical information and tools to help you determine the best approach for dealing with the problem. And, finally, it will give you the insights you will need to heal the harm that has been caused.


This workshop aims to help you to shift your perspective so that, rather than feeling that you are powerless in the face of the other parent’s actions, you experience yourself as being your child's best hope for a healthy and happy future and of having the capacity to bring about change to protect your child and restore your relationship with them.


This workshop will help you to:

  • Understand parental alienation
  • Build a strategy to help your child
