To the Parental Alienation Study Group:
I am asking you to formally endorse and actively support the Petition to the APA.
We are on the battlefield now. Today. We need your support. Targeted parents and their children need your support. Now. Today.
You are the professional organization representing targeted parents. You are the professional organization of support for them. It is to your role that advocacy for the Petition to the APA falls.
It is you who should be seeking formal endorsements to the Petition from professional psychology organizations and professional legal organizations worldwide.
The world is changing. The work of Bowlby and Minuchin and Beck is replacing the work of Gardner. We are returning to standard and established constructs and principles of professional psychology to define, diagnose, and treat pathology. Professional psychology will become united around the work of Bowlby and Minuchin and Beck, and the professional standards of practice that this brings.
In defining the pathology entirely within standard and established constructs and principles, the Bowlby-Minuchin-Beck model of attachment-based “parental alienation” (AB-PA) defines domains of knowledge needed for professional competence.
The attachment system
Personality disorder pathology
Family systems therapy
All mental health professionals can unite around standard principles of professional psychology for basic competence. Targeted parents and their children need your voice. They need you to stand with them in their call for basic professional competence.
The 14,175 voices of the Petition are asking for yours; 14,179 voices are asking the PASG to formally endorse and actively support the Petition to the APA.
This is your purpose. To bring your united voice to solving “parental alienation” for all children everywhere.
To help targeted parents create the change they need to restore their families.
Join them. Join with the 14,181 voices in support of the Petition to the APA.
The battle to reclaim the American Psychological Association as an ally of targeted parents is here. The battle is now. We need your voice now.
The 14,183 voices of the Petition to the APA are asking you to formally endorse and actively support the Petition to the APA.
