Attachment Disorder and Trans-generational haunting- Articles from 2013

Readers engaged in the manufactured argument created by Dr Childress, will be interested in this article, written in April 2013 and  this article, written in July 2013.

I have been writing and referencing attachment disorder, encapsulated delusional disorder and other concepts such as trans-generational haunting for many years,  long before Dr Childress began his blog and his publications of Foundations. As have the pioneering psychiatrists and psychologists working in this field in the UK for the past five decades.

I am concerned for the parents who are being led to believe otherwise.

Our publishers have been alerted to the claims made in recent days. I will not enter into any further public commentary or debate on the matter save to say this.

The issue of parental alienation is a human problem and working with it demands much of the practitioners involved.  Not one to be afraid of saying what I think, I have, over the years, come to realise that everyone who gets their hands dirty in this field on behalf of children and parents, deserves the utmost respect.  PA will not be solved via a formulaic route using repackaged concepts which have already been referred to for decades.

Neither will it be solved by just one person but by many.  I am always suspicious of those who claim otherwise.

And all are courageous and all should be supported and I will not contribute to this manufactured argument any further.

Our publishers and their lawyers are the proper people to deal with the claims which have been made in recent days.

Nick and I will continue our work as usual.

  1. There was a time when no one listened to me. I argued the values within the law and the UNICEF Bill of Rights for The Child. I argued for the right of a child to know his family, I argued that possession of a minor, was not the answer to continued law breaking.
    I think it’s time we moved forward, my grandchild will never have what he should have had done, and been done, for justice never was in place.
    Karen, I agree with you, watching and having to put up with a second class system, ten years plus.


  2. Blog de Bla….what ever the facts behind the argument the reality is that alienation across its spectrum is credited with being active in society in any dysfunctional family situation. The Human Right to be a parent would mitigate its affect to the extent that your arguments together with any “professional” understanding of its prognosis promulgated by the abusers would be fundamentally reduced as has happened in most Latin based nations and a few European which have made criminal this serious act.
    Please come to some equitable resolution and speedily for there are more pressing needs to save children from such psychological terrorism than who is plagiarising who?


    1. I would Nigel, sadly it is not in my gift. All I care about is the harm alienation does to children, the rest is just ego.


  3. As a parent who continues to try to find solutions to reuniting with my child and do what I can to raise awareness of some of the failures in the system that I have witnessed first hand, I have found it extremely frustrating having Dr Childress’s professional disputes with you pushed into my face on feed after feed.

    I hope that there is a resolution to the differences evident very soon. I read your posts and the posts of Dr Childress with interest on subjects that you both appear to have extensive knowledge. However, I am finding that the good work you are both doing is being clouded at this time with this dispute. I hope that you both find some common ground to enable you to work together or even independently in the search for a solution to these very difficult and concerning behaviours that are often ignored or dismissed by the family courts and authorities.

    1. Steven I am sure you do. I find it is extremely frustrating to constantly dragged into this but at times I am afraid I have to take a stand. I will not be making any further statements, I cannot guarantee that Dr Childress will not continue this but that is his business not mine. Yesterday’s posts were necessary from a legal position. K
