Add To Cart

Don’t Alienate the Kids! is a fresh examination of the child alienation problem from the perspective of a lawyer, therapist, mediator, who also trains judges on managing high-conflict disputes.

Author Bill Eddy, LCSW, Esq., doesn’t just analyze the Parental Alienation Syndrome vs. Child Abuse Presumption debate; he also proposes his own theory based on recent breakthroughs in brain research about how children learn.

In his theory, there are no bad parents, just bad behaviors – the behaviors of both parents, family members, friends and divorce professionals. Most of these bad behaviors go unrecognized in daily life, but they help build a Wall of Alienation between a parent and child.

By becoming aware and using his tips, we can all help children build a Foundation of Resilience which will last them a lifetime. This is a book for any parent even considering a divorce, and for any professional who wants to truly help parents raise resilient children.
