My book “An Attachment-Based Model of Parental Alienation: Foundations” is due for publication in the next few weeks. This book is the culmination of my work over the past seven years to redefine the construct of “parental alienation” from entirely within standard and established mental health constructs and principles.
This book will fundamentally alter the current discussion surrounding the construct of “parental alienation” and will provide a solution for targeted parents to their nightmare.
“Foundations” provides a complete and elaborated description for the construct of “parental alienation” from entirely within standard and established psychological principles and constructs to which mental health professionals can be held accountable.
After reading “Foundations,” mental health and legal professionals will no longer be able to say, “I don’t believe in parental alienation” or “parental alienation doesn’t exist.” It exists. It is not a matter of belief. And “Foundations” describes what it is.
We begin the construction of any structure by first laying a solid foundation that can support the structure. An attachment-based model for the construct of “parental alienation” provides an anchored and substantial description for what “parental alienation” is from entirely within standard and established psychological principles and constructs.
“An Attachment-Based Model of Parental Alienation: Foundations” defines the construct of “parental alienation” on the solid bedrock of established psychological principles and constructs that can be leveraged into a solution. The entire discussion surrounding “parental alienation” is about to change.
In your fight for your children, “Foundations” will become your lance, your sword, and your shield. We will end this nightmare. Today. Now.
In “Foundations” I have provided you with the professional concepts and theoretical structure that you need to enact the solution. I strongly recommend that every targeted parent read this book so that you become knowledgeable and conversant in the coming dialogue, and then we must get this book into the hands of every mental health and legal professional working with this “special population” of children and families. Every child custody evaluator, every therapist, every minor’s counsel, every family law attorney, and every family law judge must read “Foundations.”
It is time to end “parental alienation.” Today. Now. The time has come to restore the loving and affectionate bond of lost children with their parents who so desperately love them and miss them.
It is time for you to take up the lance, the sword, and the shield offered by an attachment-based model of “parental alienation” and engage the battle for your children. We will end “parental alienation.” It is a certainty – because we must. There is no other alternative.

Thank you! If you can add a Twitter, LinkedIn and Pinterest button in your “share” section of this blog, we can better spread the word!
Thank you for putting your writings into a book that can be easily shared and used to educate clinicians, attorneys judges and families on this topic. All of your work will be truly foundational to those working with families of parental alienation and provide guidance. We miss how to provide meaningful help in these complex cases too often and children suffer. We must see a clear picture in order to provide relief and help the target parent/child relationship. I am excited – thanks for sharing your work.
Reblogged this on Moms' Hearts Unsilenced and commented:
Although psychologists and others involved in the legal system who are only there to meet their own agenda won’t be assisted by this book, professionals who care should find this book a much-needed tool in any Parental Alienation case. Those who cannot afford “justice” should still be armed with Dr. Childress’s information to share with school counselors, librarians, etc.
