Are you working with families that are caught up in a High Conflict divorce?  Are you, yourself, caught up in this difficult and emotionally draining situation?

Sometimes, highly conflicted couples who are divorcing bring their children into the conflict with devastating results.  At worst, it can result in Parental Alienation Syndrome – a campaign to isolate and alienate the children from one of the parents by the other parent.

What are the signs of Parental Alienation?  How does it affect the children?  What are the tools for coping and managing the situation?  Where can you go for help?

What you will learn:

This workshop will introduce the family dynamic of Parental Alienation and provide information to participants about what it is, how it affects children, how to cope and how to access services.
