Putting Children First: A Handbook for Separated Parent

Children living in separated family situations fare best when their relationship with each of their parents continues to be clos. Putting Children First helps mothers and fathers unlock and resolve the conflict around contact with children that can arise during and after separation. Using strategies such as parenting plans, scripted phone calls and parenting meetings, the book will enable parents to communicate effectively on all the most important things in their children's lives - and make relaxed arrangements for the continued involvement by both parents with their children.

Divorce Poison

Your ex-spouse is bad-mouthing you to your children, perhaps even trying to turn them against you. If you handle the situation ineffectively, you could lose your children's respect, their affections - even, in extreme cases, lose contact with them. The conventional advice is to do nothing, that fighting fire with fire will only result in greater injury to the children. But Dr Richard Warshak is convinced that this approach does nothing but leave parents feeling helpless. And the damage to children is considerable, particularly when warring parents enlist children as allies in the battle. The problems range from tainted parent-child relationships to a disturbance known as parental alienation syndrome in which children virtually disown one of their parents. DIVORCE POISON is the first book that offers specific advice to protect children from the results of their parents' animosity. It details how to distinguish different types of criticism, how and why parents manipulate their children, how to detect these manoeuvres, and how these practices damage children. Most importantly, it offers parents powerful strategies to preserve and rebuild loving relationships with their children.

How do we begin to describe our love for our children? Pamela Richardson shows us with her passionate memoir of life with and without her estranged son, Dash. From age five, Dash suffered Parental Alienation Syndrome at the hands of his father. Indoctrinated to believe his mother had abandoned him, after years of monitored phone calls and impeded access, eight-year-old Dash decided he didn't want to be 'forced' to visit her at all; later, he told her he would never see her again if she took the case to court. But, he didn't count on his indefatigable mother's fierce love. For eight more years, Pamela battled Dash's father, the legal system, their psychologist, the school system, and Dash himself to try and protect her son - first from his father, then from himself. "A Kidnapped Mind" is a heartrending and mesmerising story of a Canadian mother's exile from and reunion with her child, through grief and beyond, to peace.

The Custody Minefield: Parental Separation, Your Rights and the Law

by Michael Robinson (Author)

'This is one of those books which you wish didn t have to be written. However, as it says in the introduction that 'following divorce, up to a fifth of parents lose contact with their children', it is good to find that someone has chosen to write about this subject and put children at the forefront of any discussions and the decisions which need to be made. Through the use of plain English, Michael Robinson clearly and succinctly leads parents through the various routes they may take, explaining even the most basic of matters, such as tips for court attendance. Frank advice is given and if it is unlikely that a parent is going to be granted a residence order then it is explained why. Without being prescriptive, he also suggests that parents use mediation if at all possible. The book is supplemented by a comprehensive and up to date website, www.thecustodyminefield.com, which offers discussion forums, chat rooms and surveys. In my opinion this book should be made available to any parents who are separating it could save them a lot of expense in legal fees.' --Magistrate Magazine

Parenatal Alienation, DSM-5, ICD-11 - Dr William Bernet

 

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Parental-Alienation-Icd-11-William-Bernet/dp/0398079455/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1283728206&sr=8-2

Parental alienation is an important phenomenon that mental health professionals should know
about and thoroughly understand, especially those who work with children, adolescents, divorced
adults, and adults whose parents divorced when they were children. In this book, the authors
define parental alienation as a mental condition in which a child – usually one whose parents are
engaged in a high-conflict divorce – allies himself or herself strongly with one parent (the preferred
parent) and rejects a relationship with the other parent (the alienated parent) without legitimate justifi-
cation. This process leads to a tragic outcome when the child and the alienated parent, who previously
had a loving and mutually satisfying relationship, lose the nurture and joy of that relationship for many
years and perhaps for their lifetimes. We estimate that 1 percent of children and adolescents in the U.S.
experience parental alienation. When the phenomenon is properly recognized, this condition is pre-
ventable and treatable in many instances.

The authors of this book believe that parental alienation is not simply a minor aberration in the life of
a family, but a serious mental condition. Because of the false belief that the alienated parent is a dan-
gerous or unworthy person, the child loses one of the most important relationships in his or her life.
This book contains much information about the validity, reliability, and prevalence of parental alien-
ation. It also includes a comprehensive international bibliography regarding parental alienation with
more than 600 citations. In order to bring life to the definitions and the technical writing, several short
clinical vignettes have been included. These vignettes are based on actual families and real events, but
have been modified to protect the privacy of both the parents and children.
