Parental Alienation Experts!
You cannot be a parental alienation expert if you have not lived through it. It is impossible to gain a perspective on the insidious abuse to both parent/grandparent and child unless you have had first hand experience.
It is not something that you can learn from text books, talking with friends, witness from the outside in, or gain a qualification from a course or conference.
I speak from many years of experience being on the receiving end. For over thirty years I have listened to Social Workers, Lawyers, Barristers, Therapists, Psychologists, Psychotherapists, the list goes on and on. The only people I have ever come across who truly understand are the people who have actually lived through or are currently living with it every day.
So when you read that someone is an expert, check their credentials and ask the right questions. Do they really know? I guess if they have not lived through it, or with it, YOU will probably have more expertise in the subject than them!
One day WE will be called the experts, ALL the alienated parents (grandparents) and alienated adult children are the real experts. If you want to know about Parental Alienation go onto the forums, there are plenty of us out there. At the last count I had over 12,000 followers throughout my social media, and they are just the ones who are prepared to put their head above the parapet and discuss their situation openly.
