Preventing Parental Alienation

If you know how this foul-play tactic comes about, you can plan ahead and manage around the personality that is most likely to cause you to become “alienated” from your kids.

And you can make up your mind to rise above it, and employ strategies that undo or avoid the worst of the damages.

We will start outline how alienation is identified in different ways in our cases, and what to do about it.   The reason we use case studies to do this is to help parents see that it can be prevented, and that is doesn’t just happen to fathers, or to mothers.  It also doesn’t just happen in situations where “false allegations” occur.  The term alienation doesn’t always apply, but is used frequently to describe what is happening to a parent who is not the target of foul play.  See “Alienating the Good from the Bad” for more on that issue.

Please come back to this section as we pull in more positive and creative resources from around the country to help tackle alienation issues.

I miss you... can be said without words, by a father, a mother, and children.  We are working on strategies to prevent alienation and to help restore balance.
