We are delighted to announce our second conference with the theme Parental Alienation: Bringing Practice, Science and the Law out of the Fog. Building on the success of our last conference where parental alienation was presented as family violence, our second conference aims to provide mental health and legal practitioners with information, skills and techniques for working with families and individuals experiencing parental alienation.
Matters involving parental alienation are complex. They can leave the most experienced and skilled practitioner uncertain about the best course of action. At the Parental Alienation: Bringing Practice, Science and the Law Out of the Fog conference we will be providing keynote speakers and workshops focused on the latest evidence based practices in response to parental alienation. Delegates will be provided with the skills they need to help them navigate their work with these complex matters. There will be a variety of presentations and workshops that include skills-based activities that can be translated immediately into clinical and legal practice.
This conference is for mental health and legal practitioners as well as researchers in the field.
There will also be presentations dedicated to individuals experiencing parental alienation. These presentations will provide important up-to-date information about parental alienation, how to better respond to it and how to cope with it.
