Later this week I will announce Training for Practitioners in Iceland. For now here is an introduction to our workshop for parents in Iceland on 1.2.2020.


Whilst parental alienation is a much more widely recognized phenomenon than it once was, it remains a controversial subject. However, what is incontrovertible is that, for some children, the dynamics around the separation of their parents is so disturbing that they respond by aligning with one and completely rejecting the other. This is not only a bewildering and frightening experience for a rejected parent, it can cause significant and lasting harm to a child.

Through exploring children’s experiences, family dynamics and transgenerational patterns of estrangement, this workshop will provide you with a deeper understanding of how alienation occurs and how it has manifested itself in your family. It will also provide you with practical information and tools to help you determine the best approach for dealing with the problem. And, finally, it will give you the insights you will need to heal the harm that has been caused.

This workshop aims to help you to shift your perspective so that, rather than feeling that you are powerless in the face of the other parent’s actions, you experience yourself as being your child’s best hope for a healthy and happy future and of having the capacity to bring about change to protect your child and restore your relationship with them.

This workshop will help you to:

  • Understand parental alienation
  • Build a strategy to help your child
  • Understand how to manage the court process
  • Develop coping strategies to manage the problem of being prevented from seeing your child
  • Stay healthy and focused and understand why this is important
  • Recognise the ways in which parents can become trapped in the alienation situation
  • Help others to understand what is happening in your family
  • Educate professionals working with yo
  • Articulate the issues in your own unique case
  • Present your case in court

What you will learn

  • How children become alienated
  • The impact on children of alienation
  • How psychological splitting affects perception and memory
  • What the psychologically split state of mind does to you
  • How to change yourself to change your child
  • How to communicate with a psychologically split child
  • How to build the antidote to psychological splitting into everyday parenting
  • Setting boundaries
  • Developing new moral guidelines for family life
  • Trouble shooting with recovering children

Featuring co-trainers who are parents who have received their severely alienated child back into their life and used therapeutic parenting to heal the split state of mind, this is an interactive workshop for all rejected parents and those at risk of rejection.

Whilst this workshop is primarily aimed at parents whose children have been reunified with them, it will also be highly relevant for any parent who still retains some relationship with a resisting child and for parents whose children are at risk of developing an alienation reaction.

Please note that the Family Separation Clinic is a not for profit enterprise and that all of the proceeds from training and workshops for parents is put into research and development of services from the Clinic.  The Clinic is also a major contributor to the European Association of Parental Alienation Practitioners which receives no independent funding from any source.

There is little in the way of financial support for this work around the world and our commitment in all of our work is to further understanding and development of best practice with families. As such the whole of what we do around the world is funded via the training we deliver to other practitioners and to parents.

We hope that one day, these kinds of services will be available at low cost around the world. Until then, our recycling of funding approach, is how we continue to deliver services to families and develop a skilled workforce.

We think this is a powerful model for development of this challenging field of work and we think it is the best way to invest funds spent by parents who suffer this horrible problem so that future generations get the help that they need on a much wider scale.
