And brought significant attention around the world to the issue of pathological splitting and the abuse of a child.

Sir Paul Coleridge, former High Court Judge and Chair of Marriage Foundation, listed the following as headlines from the Conference
The need for EAPAP is proven without doubt.
There is a need for worldwide standardisation of terms
There is an urgent need for highest quality training of all professionals – especially judges (2/3 of work done by magistrates – they need support)
There is a need for speed in the process of identification of parental alienation – court needs to recognise and act quicker (including judicial continuity)
Therapy (the go to easy option) is a complete waste of time without being held within the court process and delivered as set out by EAPAP.
The steps advocated by EAPAP are endorsed.
The Caliber of speakers at the EAPAP Conference has been gold standard
