Are you a narcissist?

I would like to dedicate this article about narcissism to a very special person: me. Dedicating a story about narcissism to yourself is a pretty clever idea. I didn’t think of it. Jeffrey Kluger did, in his new book The Narcissist Next Door: Understanding the Monster in Your Family, in Your Office, in Your Bed — in Your World.

What alienated parents don’t know and what alienating parents don’t tell them

Karen Woodall

This post is part of the process of finishing off the book I am writing about parental alienation. Launching soon will be our therapeutic coaching services for alienated parents, using an approach which we have developed at the Family Separation Clinic.  This approach is unique to us and is based upon almost ten years of work with parents who are alienated from their children. It is an approach we are having success with and, combined with  our new handbook, it is an approach that we know will put power back into the hands of alienated parents.  This approach is based upon what alienated parents don’t know and what alienating parents don’t tell them.  This approach is, in our view, one of the secrets to resolving alienation in children and it puts power into the hands of the people who can do that most effectively of all.  You.

More Challenges to Legal Aid

Researching Reform

With the green light given to Rights of Women to challenge the current legal aid guidelines for domestic violence victims, another battle rages on, this time with the mantle being carried by the Criminal Law sector. The hearing which also took place last Friday saw lawyers calling for a review of the consultation process which led to the current policy on legal aid (and fee cuts), and this is one battle that just got ugly.

For the scrap this morning is not amongst disgruntled families, or charities like Rights of Women who brought their challenge out of concern for the safety of vulnerable people across Britain, but between the MOJ and the legal sector. Quite simply put, the Ministry of Justice has sent out a clear message that fee cuts for legal aid are not going to make up part of the challenge – but the fairness of the consultation…

Pushing Healing Too Fast, Too Hard

Don’t get sucked into the vortex of Parental Alienation

Just arrived home after 15 days away from Facebook and all the things I don’t want to hear about my estranged children and grandchildren. Feeling loved, appreciated and energised after the break.

Remember its their choice not ours, we have not chosen alienation/estrangement (or whatever you may want to call it) they have.

We are not alienated parents – they are alienated children!!!!!

Don’t get sucked into the vortex – we cannot change it, so learn to live with it and enjoy each day.

Believe me the pain does go, yes I do miss them but I don’t hurt anymore. After 24 years on and off I have learnt to live with it and now enjoy a happy normal life – be kind to yourself – remember you have done nothing wrong.
