letter from parental-alienation.info
25 January 2006
Dear visitor of parental-alienation.info,
Thank you for your continued interest in parental alienation and
our work on how we address this feature. I hope that following my
last mailing you enjoyed your Christmas holiday. May I wish you
a happy New Year in which I hope for you that you will be reunited
with your child(ren). If you are so fortunate, please let me know
During the Christmas season I have been working on two further
articles on the parental alienation:
Psychological Effect of Modelling (Imitation) on Parental Alienation”
Psychological Assessment and Treatment of Pathologically Induced
(Dealing with alienation leading to an induced phobic reaction)”.
The first article (number 39) contains two interviews and shows
firstly how alienation towards an absent parent, after an acrimonious
parting, can be prevented. This leads to a significant benefit for
the child/children who could be, and often are, caught up in the
acrimony between the parents. The second interview shows the resistance
of a parent and how to prevent that parent programming a child against
the other parent. This is often carried out via modelling and classical
conditioning by the custodial parent.
The second article (number 40) approaches parental alienation syndrome
as it is experienced by children from a different perspective. Parental
alienation may be likened to the promoting of a phobic reaction
towards the alienated parent. Certain strategies or therapies are
therefore suggested for treating a child who has developed both
a fear and hostility towards the alienated and absent parent. Two
forms of treatment are suggested. The first is Cognitive Behaviour
Therapy. The second is a number of Behavioural Therapy approaches
including exposure and flooding in regard to the feared alienated

We are still working on our worldwide survey on PA and PAS. We
are aiming to gather evidence via a survey of professional experts
as well as from non custodial parents to obtain real evidence as
to the percentage of success or failure of current acceptable methods
to bring about contact. The survey (questionnaire) seeks to obtain
for the first time, objective evidence as to whether the current
recommendations lead to direct positive contact between the absent
parent and the child following indirect and supervised contact as
stepping stones to full contact.
If you know others who are suffering from the effects of parental
alienation and who may want to contribute to our survey, please
feel free to forward my mailing and suggest to them to add their
e-mail address to our mailing list. We will inform you as soon as
we launch our survey.
