Parental Alienation: Recognition and Appropriate Responses in Mediation
This course introduces the concept of parental alienation as the reaction seen in the child which is caused by the parental dynamics in family separation. The course explains the way in which PA is differentiated from estrangement and includes understanding the spectrum of behaviour seen in families where PA is present. The course explores safeguarding as well as the use of PA as a false allegation and how to differentiate between these presentations.
