On June 1 from 3:30 to 5:00 in Boston, Dorcy Pruter and I will be presenting on AB-PA and the High Road protocol. In this presentation, we will unpack the High Road protocol at a professional level of analysis and we will explain exactly how the High Road protocol both gently and effectively restores the normal-range functioning of the child’s attachment system within a matter of days.
I just finished my Powerpoint slides for my professional-level description of the High Road protocol. They are amazing. I guarantee – guarantee – that by the end of our presentation everyone at that presentation will know exactly how the High Road protocol restores the child’s normal-range attachment bonding motivations toward the targeted parent within a matter of days. Guaranteed.
I said Dallas was going to be powerful – and it was. Boston is going to be equally amazing, but in a different way. Boston is for the professional organization that unites family law professionals with psychology professionals, the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts (AFCC). This is a high-level professional organization for legal professionals and court-involved mental health professionals.
In Dallas, Dorcy and I presented separately and our overarching agenda was to describe the framework for the solution to “parental alienation.”
In Boston, Dorcy and I are presenting collaboratively on a tight framework describing assessment, diagnosis, and treatment, with a particular focus on the catalytic psycho-educational intervention of the High Road protocol as an augmentation to traditional therapeutic approaches.
In Dallas, I described the general framework in which the High Road workshop fits within the overall recovery of the child.
In Boston, I’m going to unpack the protocol itself at a professional level of analysis, and I’ll describe exactly how it achieves the success it does. If anyone wants to know exactly how the High Road protocol achieves the restoration of the child’s normal-range attachment bonding motivations toward the formerly targeted-rejected parent in a matter of days – come to Boston.
If you are a family law attorney who works with cases of “parental alienation” – you will want to hear this talk. If you are a legal professional (judge, minor’s counsel, GAL) who wants to know how the High Road achieves the success it does – you’ll want to hear this talk. If you are a child custody evaluator or court-involved therapist; you will most definitely want to hear this talk. Guaranteed. I’ve seen my Powerpoint slides describing the High Road protocol. Guaranteed, you’ll want to hear this.
For legal and mental health professionals who can’t attend this talk… sucks for you. I am not going to release my Powerpoint slides for this particular talk. Dorcy’s protocol is hers. It is her intellectual property. In Boston I will provide a professional-level description of exactly how the High Road protocol restores the child’s normal-range attachment bonding motivations toward the targeted parent, and I will do so while also protecting the intellectual property rights of Dorcy. Can I do both? Absolutely. I’ve already done it. I’ve already created my Powerpoint slides for my description for how the High Road protocol achieves the success it does.
But following Boston, I am not going to release this professional-level analysis generally because I want to respect Dorcy and her rights. It’s her protocol. I am going to give my slides describing the High Road protocol to Dorcy and she can choose to use them as she sees fit. It’s her protocol.
I’m anticipating speaking for about 45 minutes on AB-PA. I’ll then present a professional-level analysis of the High Road protocol. Then Dorcy and I will transition into her talk.
If you’re a legal or court-involved mental health professional who wants to know how the High Road protocol achieves its success… come to Boston. If you’re not at Boston on June 1 from 3:30 to 5:00… sucks for you. Or talk to Dorcy.
Will this be the only talk Dorcy and I give together? Probably not. We’ll probably submit joint presentation proposals to various organizations in the future. Most likely she and I will submit to the Family Law division of the APA during the fall proposal submission period. It’s up to the APA if they want to hear from us. I’ll also likely be submitting to the APA for a solo convention presentation on just AB-PA. But the submission period is in the fall for the presentations at the 2018 convention. Long ways away. And who knows if the APA will accept our presentation proposals.
So Boston’s it. Nothing’s on the calendar after Boston. And the information that’s on its way for Boston is guaranteed amazing. Remember how I said there’s going to be a before Dallas and an after Dallas. Well in terms of the family law and professional psychology interface, there’s going to be a before Boston and an after Boston.
If you have any interest in understanding how the High Road protocol achieves its success in restoring the child’s normal-range attachment bonding motivations toward the targeted parent in a matter of days, come to Boston. If you’re not in Boston June 1… oh well, sucks for you. Maybe later.
