Separation and divorce can impact the quality of relationships between family members and at times parents experience struggles in their relationships with their children.
The question may arise as to whether alienation is occurring, particularly in high conflict situations. Parental alienation is defined as the deliberate attempt by one parent to distance his/her children from the other parent.
Often people will ask us how they can determine if alienation is occurring, and the answer is not always straightforward. We, at Concorida Counselling, help educate clients about parental alienation and estrangement. We work with families who are concerned to determine the best way forward in rebuilding relationships.
