Complex PTDS (C-PTSD) with Parental Alienation is a hidden little secret. | #PTSDchat

Complex PTSD (C-PTSD) with Parental Alienation is often kept a secret.

I started interviewing families for my book and two topics kept coming into the conversation, Parental Alienation and PTSD.

Many parents who have PTSD have become victims of parental alienation. Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS) is when one parent takes the children and keeps them from the other parent, when there is no abusive reason to do so.

In addition to this being something that happens regularly within the PTSD community, people without PTSD whose children are taken away, often develop C-PTSD, as do the children who have lived through this traumatic event.

Some parents are already struggling to deal with PTSD when a breakup occurs. If the other parent has narcissistic tendencies or thinks it would just be easier on them, they may keep the children from having a relationship with the PTSD sufferer. This adds to their PTSD.



Currently studying Psychotherapy , Cognitive psychology, Biological psychology, Counselling psychology and CBT. I believe in truth, honesty and integrity! ≧◔◡◔≦
