I have three announcement upcoming. My first announcement is that The Childress Institute website is live.
The Childress Institute is established to organize the Training and Certification of mental health professionals in AB-PA.
Of particular note is the Registration page. The first Basic Certification in AB-PA is scheduled for November 18th and 19th at the Westin hotel in Pasadena.
There is a third day optional seminar on November 20th for Advanced Certification in AB-PA. This is the day that contains what I consider to be all the really cool stuff.
Enrollment in these seminars is limited to 20 participants to ensure the ability for direct discussion and dialogue during the seminar.
You’ll note when you scroll down the Homepage of The Childress Institute that the Current Focus is Parental Alienation in High-Conflict Divorce, and also that there are Future Projects and Directions.
The reason there are Future Projects and Directions is because we are going to solve “parental alienation” in high-conflict divorce.
There will come a point in time, hopefully within the next two years, when “parental alienation” will be solved. We will have a systematic early intervention model in place, and the mental health and legal systems will work together efficiently in an effective collaboration to solve the pathology and return children and families to a normal-range trajectory within six months of their first encounter with the mental health or legal system.
All done. Solved. An efficient and effective response to the pathology of “parental alienation” (AB-PA) surrounding divorce.
There will be no more need for The Childress Institute to focus on this issue, because it will be solved. That is my vision, that is my goal, and I fully anticipate achieving that goal.
At that point, once “parental alienation” (AB-PA) is solved for all children and all families everywhere, I’ll turn my attention to solving other things, like the horrific pathological anger of the terrorist mind and the extremism of pathological anger that we recently witnessed in Charlottesville, in Paris, in Orlando, in Manchester – (The Terrorist Mind and the Extremism of Pathological Anger).
And there will be other projects to keep me busy for as long as the universe allows me to do its work.
My goal is to get “parental alienation” done and solved as quickly as is humanly possible because the tragedy of “parental alienation” (AB-PA) needs to end – now – today – and because I want to then move on to solving other things before I leave and return home.
Training and Certification in AB-PA is part of that solution to solving “parental alienation.” It ensures the necessary level of professional expertise. By the time we’re done, there will be a substantial number of AB-PA Certified mental health professionals everywhere. I don’t want to be the expert, I want to give you lots and lots of experts everywhere, mental health professionals that you can trust because you can be assured that they have the highest level of professional expertise in assessing, diagnosing, and treating the attachment-related family pathology of “parental alienation” (AB-PA).
November 18th, 19th, and 20th at the Westin hotel in Pasadena we begin. In the days ahead, I’ll have more to say on the content of these Training and Certification seminars and their role in the integrated solution. But I’ll need to make two additional announcements first, so that the entirely integrated solution will become clear.
Currently, The Childress Institute is a DBA. I have my attorney working on the application for 501c3 nonprofit status. The estimate for this is about 9 months, sometime late spring early summer of 2018, although various approvals will come along the way.
Down the road, once we solve “parental alienation” (AB-PA), I want a grant from the Department of Homeland Security to solve the terrorist mind and the extremism of pathological anger.
I want a grant from the Gates Foundation to solve the currently dysfunctional education system and elevate the U.S. educational system into an utterly amazing 22nd Century status. Children have a developmental right to an amazing education.
I want to construct an online parenting website that provides training and educational seminars that solve ADHD, that solve oppositional and defiant child behavior, that solve school failure, that solve delinquency, that solve pretty much all the troublesome stuff of childhood and adolescence, along with supportive seminars for educating foster parents, and training for child and family therapists in neuro-developmentally supportive child and family therapy as a replacement therapy model for play therapy and behavior therapy. All housed in an online website of accessible seminars and trainings.
And Dorcy and I are going to get to work on substantially reducing the trauma-mindset that leads to prison recidivism, using a catalytic model of transformative and healing change – and ultimately, through improvements in parenting and direct catalytic interventions, I want to reduce prison incarceration in the first place. Our kids – even if they’re now grown-up adult kids – should not be in cages. That would be abhorrent for my son or daughter – and I consider all kids to be “my sons” and “my daughters” (you all just have the privilege of raising “my kids”).
And the super-long range goal is to solve Syria, the Ukraine, Nigeria, and the Sudan; ethnic violence and inter-nation violence and conflict.
Are these solutions possible? Yep. I see the path to solution in each of these areas. My goal is for The Childress Institute to serve as a catalyst for the solution in each of these areas, as I have served as a catalyst in the solution to “parental alienation” (AB-PA) that is on its way.
But first things first, we need to solve the attachment-related family pathology of “parental alienation” (AB-PA) for all children and all families everywhere. Is this possible? Yep.
The important feature of getting The Childress Institute website up is getting the online Registration function for seminars. As long as I’m constructing a website foundation, might as well have a bookstore page. The bookstore page provides discounts for my books. There’s also a donations page. The Childress Institute is not currently a 501c3 nonprofit, donations to The Childress Institute are not tax deductible yet.
I figure I have about another decade of shelf-life, maybe less, before I return home. My goal is for us to solve the pathology of “parental alienation” as soon as we possibly can, and then I’ll shift my focus to these other areas and set as many of the solutions in as many of these other areas into motion as I can, and then I’ll leave the planet and return home, leaving the work to be completed by the next generation coming forward – to our children.
