As the third conference of the European Association of Parental Alienation Practitioners draws closer this is an article from Parental Alienation Europe, the Newsletter of EAPAP.
In Israel, colleagues are working with psychoanalytic understanding and trauma informed practice to bring about positive resolutions in cases of child alienation and relational trauma in divorce and separation.
Here, Dr Benny Bailey and Dr Inbal Kivenson Bar-On write about their experience of this work and about the challenges and outcomes for children and families that are created when therapeutic practice is configured correctly. Dr Bailey and Dr Kivenson Bar-On, write of the wide spectrum of cases they work with and the position in Israel in relationship to acceptance of the concept of alienation and the way in which it is recognised in the family courts and treated in Israel.
Dr Bailey and Dr Kivenson will present a paper on their work at the EAPAP conference in September.
