When targeted parents discover that they have been alienated from their child or children, they are likely to experience a tsunami of powerful emotions—shock, pain, disbelief, confusion, paralysis, and many others. In this very practical presentation, Dr. Lynn Steinberg will review how alienated parents and grandparents can recognize what is happening—not only to recognize the alienation itself, but related behaviors such as manipulative behavior by the alienating parent and dysfunctional behavior by the alienated child or children. Although she will review some of the well-known features of parental alienation her main focus will be on how to document the most relevant and important behaviors for the benefit of mental health and legal professionals, that is, for therapists, evaluators, attorneys, and courts. Having such skills can make the difference between a good outcome and a poor one. More specifically, Dr. Steinberg will present techniques that targeted parents and grandparents can use to expose and (hopefully) neutralize various alienating strategies.
There’s an old saying: You never get a second chance to make a first impression. It’s important for targeted parents to keep this in mind. Although it’s understandable that targeted parents can present with the Four A’s—that is, to come across as Anxious, Agitated, Angry, and Afraid—that can be a recipe for disaster when dealing with anyone, even your friends and family, let alone court-appointed professionals.
How can targeted parents make a good impression—or, for that matter, the best impression? Why might an abusive alienating parent present better than a non-abusive alienated parent? What can alienated parents do to get their messages across? Dr. Steinberg will address these and related points. Meanwhile, a short answer would be to remember the Four C’s—to be Cool, Calm, Charming, and Convincing. Unfortunately, for reasons to be discussed, alienating parents tend to be better at this than targeted parents. Likewise, it’s important to keep in mind another old saying: You need to sell yourself before you can sell your positions or opinions.
Indeed, that might be the single most important thing for alienated parents to keep in mind, especially when dealing with professionals, many of whom are likely to be skeptical, if not dismissive, of any parent who presents with the Four A’s. That is likely to be all the more important if the child or children have expressed a strong preference for one parent—the favored parent—over the other.
If you are one of those “other” parents—or if you are a mental health or legal professional who works with such parents—this presentation should be very helpful.
