The Board of the European Association of Parental Alienation Practitioners met in St Moritz this week. On the agenda were the principles and protocols of practice with families affected by parental alienation which will provide standardisation in delivery of interventions in all European member countries. Also on the agenda was the third international conference of EAPAP which will be held in Zagreb in June 2020 (more details shortly).

The purpose of EAPAP is to prove standards, ethical guidelines, training and support to practitioners who work with families affected by parental alienation across Europe. The Board agreed that Israel will be included in EAPAP as practitioners in the country are keen to work with EAPAP.
Whilst the work being done in EAPAP is intended for European countries, the models of practice and ethical guidelines will be available as templates for other countries in the world who may seek to provide standards for practitioners in order to increase and support a stronger workforce with families affected by parental alienation.
Practitioners have collectively given hundreds of hours of unpaid work to develop the European Association of Parental Alienation Practitioners and we thank Wilfred Von Boch-Galhau for his kindness in hosting the Board members for the three days of work undertaken this week.
More details on the third EAPAP conference in Zagreb Croatia, which will focus upon practice with families which is informed by international research will be available shortly.
The mission statement and strategic plan of EAPAP will also available to view on the website shortly.
