EAPAP 2018 – Introducing International Standards of Practice

Today we launch the internationally recognised standards of practice in the field of parental alienation.

Today we pledge to families in Europe that you will have the choice and chance to get the help you need to properly resolve the problem of rejection of a parent by a child after family separation.

We began our work in Prague last year and now in London we launch standards of practice for all those who work in this field to follow.

We follow on from the work done by all of the pioneers in this field and give our grateful thanks to those whose tireless work has brought us to this place.  EAPAP is built on the foundations of all of the incredible hard work and determination to bring this issue to public consciousness.

This is a rich and important field of research, this is an emerging science and one which is increasingly recognised as protection of children from long lasting harm.

We are one movement with many hands.  EAPAP is one part of that.  Thank you to everyone who has  gone before and who has worked alongside us in the last decade  to get EAPAP to this place.

  1. My best wishes, heartfelt thanks, hopes and expectations are with you Karen and Nick, as you launch your conference today.
    I hope and pray that you get as widespread and as positive coverage of this development in the field of child welfare, as is possible. May it resonate and reverberate with all and any practitioners who find themselves in front of a child unfathomably and unreasonably denying and decrying a previously loved parent. May it feed a seed of doubt in their minds and give them the tools to root out the truth below the surface. May it give them validated and evaluated factually based research that strengthens them as they work to support the child and the whole family. May it give them a network to support their own development. May it bring change. May it shine a light on this appalling hidden affliction that devastates so many families. May news coverage of this conference and examples of its focus chime uncomfortably with some now adult alienated children, and stir the cognitive dissonance that could start to bring about personal change. My hopes and prayers are with you.

  2. Hi Karen

    Thank you for all that you have done and are doing for Parental alienation.

    I live in the Wellington area of New Zealand. Is there anyone at all that you know from this area that would be following this, would be working on this.

    I would really appreciate your help.

    If you don’t know anyone could you tell me what I should be looking for….a psychologist, a psychiatrist or something else?

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Warm regards Liz Boyd


  3. For all those who still suffer, we will improve. For the children who have been so unhappy. We will work to give you back respect and choice in your life. Freedom to live your life without pressure and blame. Freedom to be loved, honestly and justly.


  4. Congratulations on all your efforts to deal with this – all us alienated parents, children, grandparents, cousins and friends out here say Thank You!
