The Resistant Child:Understanding and Working With Parental Alienation and Estrangement

Sunshine Coast | Training

About the event


A child rejecting a parent or resisting contact is a commonly occurring phenomenon in the family law courts of Australia. This rejection requires a deeper exploration and understating of parental alienation, parental estrangement and the alienated child.

Understanding why a child rejects a parent or resists contact and what the most appropriate
response is requires a high level of critical analysis coupled with diverse skills.
In this presentation we will explore this complexity and how we can best work with children and parents.
This is a controversial area of practice and often elicits polarised views. I look forward to your thoughts and ideas about this challenging and contentious field.
