False Allegations: Never Acceptable

Karen Woodall

I am alerted to false claims of plagiarism in our new book by Dr Craig Childress.

This matter has today been referred to our publisher Charles C Thomas Illinois.

Plagiarism is a serious allegation and the claim being made is entirely without foundation as part of a manufactured argument in our view.  The concepts claimed by Dr Childress as being his, are in fact those which have been used in the UK for more than five decades by psychiatrists and psychologists.  They have also been widely written about by all of the experts in the field of parental alienation both before and after Gardner’s original curation of the eight signs of alienation.  All of the material in our new book is properly referenced to source and claims that they are not are misleading.

We will be taking this matter as far as it needs to go to put a stop…

Lingering Effects Of Emotional Abuse

With most forms of emotional abuse, the victim is left feeling powerless, worthless, and broken inside. These wounds don’t leave visible scars, although they’re just as painful as any physical injury. We pick up the pieces and put our lives back together as best we can. And sometimes, the best we can do is patchwork. We go back to our daily existence thinking everything is fine — but something still seems different. Many survivors describe two different selves: “before abuse” and “after abuse.” Continue reading “Lingering Effects Of Emotional Abuse”

Healing From Emotional Abuse

Emotional abuse is a covert, dehumanizing, psychological and spiritual reframing of reality that causes deep damage to the core of a person. Survivors of emotional abuse often struggle with depression, complex-post-traumatic-stress-disorder, muscular pain, vascular problems, brain fog, sleep disorders, and more. As long as you continue to live in the poisonous atmosphere of emotional abuse, you may wrestle with the ability to breathe the clean air of Truth and find the freedom and joy of living as the person God created you to be.

Understanding Parental Alienation -By Karen Woodall and Nick Woodall

Through exploring children’s experiences, family dynamics and transgenerational patterns of estrangement, this book will provide you with a deeper understanding of how alienation occurs and how it has manifested itself in your family. It will also provide you with practical information and tools to help you determine the best approach for dealing with the problem. And, finally, it will give you the insights you will need to heal the harm that has been caused. Ultimately, this book aims to help you to shift your perspective so that, rather than feeling that you are powerless in the face of the other parent’s actions, you experience yourself as being your child’s best hope for a healthy and happy future and of having the capacity to bring about change to protect your child and restore your relationship with them.

Back to Basics – How a Child Becomes Alienated

Karen Woodall

The Family Separation Clinic regards the problem of alienation in a child as one which is caused by many factors and one which is a spectrum experience.  This means that the alienation response in the child ranges from mild to severe and that the psychologically split state of mind which underpins alienation can range from sporadic to permanently seen.

In assessing the presence of the alienation reaction in the child we use a wide range of tools to evaluate, including the presence of coercive control.  Where we suspect pure alienation (the child is captured in a dynamic caused by a psychologically unwell parent), we seek evaluation for personality disorder and in some cases where it is observed, for encapsulated delusion in parent and child.

Our focus however is always the child because we know that the psychologically split state of mind is caused not simply by psychologically unwell parents but…
