The world of “parental alienation” surrounding high-conflict divorce changes dramatically on June 1 in Boston.
I leave tomorrow for the East coast where I will visit my son in DC for his birthday, and then travel up to Boston for my AFCC presentation with Dorcy. This Boston presentation is significant and will alter the landscape of how the attachment-related family pathology of “parental alienation” is addressed in both the mental health and legal systems.
My Powerpoint is in-hand. It is powerful.
There are at least 5 major – major – fulcrums of change contained in my Boston presentation. Any one of these fulcrums of change would be significant just by itself, and there will be at least five of them in my talk.
Two of these fulcrums of change – the Key to the family law solution and the explanation of the High Road protocol’s effectiveness – are shattering fulcrums of change that will ripple for years with major impact.
Systems change is slow. There is an inertia that prevents change within systems. This is especially true when the inertia of the status quo is locked into place by the profound indolence and sloth of professional ignorance and incompetence.
But the solution to the attachment-related family pathology of “parental alienation” is available today – now – this instant. The ONLY barriers are professional ignorance and the incompetence that this ignorance spawns.
On June 1 in Boston we put an end to ignorance and we return to the solid foundation of professional knowledge.
On June 1 in Boston we draw a line in the sand that defines professional standards of practice and that challenges all mental health professionals into professional competence.
On June 1 in Boston we present the solution. Simple. Clear. Direct.
On June 1 in Boston we explain exactly how the High Road protocol gently and effectively achieves a 100% success rate of restoring the child’s normal-range attachment bonding motivations toward the formerly targeted-rejected parent.
On June 1 in Boston, everything changes.
When a pebble is thrown into a lake, it takes time for the ripples to expand to the shores on which we stand. Changing the inertia created by ignorance takes time. But there is no barrier except ignorance. The solution is available – now – today.
Following my Boston presentation I will make my Powerpoint slides available on my website, but I will extract the slides related to the High Road protocol that might compromise the intellectual property of Dorcy Pruter in explaining how the High Road protocol creates change.
Dorcy has the legitimate right to protect her intellectual property. The professional community also has a legitimate interest in understanding the change-mechanisms used. Our Boston presentation balances these interests.
What the High Road protocol does is unlike anything we do in psychotherapy, and the catalytic change-agent mechanisms used by the High Road protocol have potential implications far beyond the restoration of the attachment system in “parental alienation.” I suspect that our Boston presentation will initiate a gradually emerging dialogue in professional psychology about adapting the catalytic change-agent approach used by Dorcy to a broad-range of issues beyond the restoration of attachment bonding motivations.
Once we solve “parental alienation” – because that is THE most pressing issue – then expect a series of professional-level articles. We just don’t have time yet. We’re too busy solving “parental alienation” as fast as is humanly possible.
Following our presentation, Dorcy will have the full series of my Powerpoint slides related to the High Road protocol and she can make these slides available to individuals and in circumstances as she sees fit. With the exception of these High Road slides, the remainder of my Powerpoint slides from Boston will be available on my website following our presentation.
I leave tomorrow for Boston. The world is about to change.
