About this webinar

Professionals in legal, health and social care settings have, for a long time, battled with the issue of how to understand and respond to children and young people’s seemingly disproportionate resistance to contact with a non-resident parent. Frameworks such as ‘Parental Alienation’ have been adopted by some who highlight the need for resident parents to take responsibility for supporting a child or young person to have a relationship with both their parents. But the concept has been rejected by others, who feel that it feeds a polarised narrative where the focus is on establishing whether the child has been either abused or alienated by the other parent.

In this webinar we introduce a framework developed over the last seven years at the Anna Freud Centre: ‘Child Triangulation processes’ are dimensions along which a child can become exposed to or involved with parental conflict and can impact on their willingness to have contact with a non-resident parent. Assessment using these child focused dimensions can inform intervention and therapy. In this webinar we outline the framework and illustrate how it can be applied using hypothetical case examples.

This webinar will be of interest to anyone working with separated parents in conflict over contact and residence issues, including:

Social workers

Lawyers

Mediators

Psychologists

Psychiatrists

Family therapists

Psychotherapists

Judges
