Last night I had the opportunity to attend a fundraising event for a documentary currently being filmed about “parental alienation” called Erasing Family.
At this event, the movie’s director showed rough cuts of some of their filming to date, stories told by targeted parents and by their now reunited children. Most powerful were the statements by the now-reunited children. Strong stuff. Good stuff.
This is exactly the professional grade documentary that needs to get made.
They need funding. They need our support.
They are in the process of filming. Go to their website. Read about this documentary. I strongly urge you to contribute – I did. This documentary will be your voice, this documentary will be the authentic voice of your beloved children speaking clearly about their experience of alienation and recovery.
Things are changing. I feel it. The universe is shifting on its axis. The stars are aligning. The process of solution is beginning to emerge.
We stand on the battlefield, fighting for your children. The time is now. The battle is now. The time to end the family nightmare of “parental alienation” is now.
There are many fronts to the battle.
The APA: There is the demand to change the position statement of the American Psychological Association on “parental alienation” and for the APA to hold a high level conference of experts in attachment theory, personality pathology, family systems therapy, and developmental trauma to produce a white paper on attachment-related pathology surrounding divorce. The APA is reportedly developing a working group on the issue. Let them hear from you.
Professional Competence: There is the ongoing battle to obtain professional competence case-by-case in the assessment and accurate diagnosis of attachment-related pathology surrounding divorce, in which all ignorant and incompetent psychologists will be placed on notice that they will – with 100% certainty – face a licensing board complaint for a breech of Standards 9.01a and 2.01a of the APA ethics code for professional incompetence if they fail to appropriately assess and accurately diagnose attachment-related pathology surrounding divorce..
Legislation: There is the legislative front and changes to the child abuse reporting laws to specifically cite psychological child abuse and pathogenic parenting as reportable under mandated reporting laws. There are some interesting developments in this area that I will address later.
Media Attention: The documentary Erasing Family will advance the solution to “parental alienation” light years when it is finished and released. I urge you to come together. Support the making of this documentary. Visit their website. Learn about the documentary. Contribute.
In “parental alienation” there are so many ways in which you are made powerless. No one listens. No one hears you. No one believes you. You are alone. Erasing Family will bring your voice into the mainstream dialogue. It is the voice of all targeted parents. What’s more, through the voices of recovered children it also provides the voices of your authentic children were they free to speak.
I urge all targeted parents, and all the family members you can muster, your parents, your brothers, your sisters, your aunts and uncles, go to www.erasingfamily.org and support this documentary with a contribution.
Erasing Family will bring your voice into the mainstream dialogue of our culture. It is time to bring this hidden family pathology out into the open light of day. Erasing Family is the voice of all targeted parents, and it is the authentic voice of your children.
We stand now upon the battlefield, fighting for your children. The time is now. The battle is now. The time to end the family nightmare of “parental alienation” is now.
In order to solve “parental alienation” for any one family, we must solve “parental alienation” for ALL children and ALL families.
Come together and become a single voice for change. Erasing Family will be that voice. Your voice. And the voice of your authentic children.
