Clearly from all I have experienced ( and read) mine is a case of Parental Alienation. I may discuss details here later when feeing confidernt and safe to do so but for now just gloss over. Naively, I assumed what was morally right would prevail and that a child could not be kept from you as a parent unless you were a complete monster.  If anything, I have foolishly protected the real monster to my own detriment.....because I thought that involving police ( unless beaten black and blue) would only bring more trouble and give my child reason to "hate" me even more.

So far (interim orders) the child is left mainly where he says he wishes to be ( great idea that.......not) and that the relationship with myself must be worked on via court ordered counselling which the other parent must arrange and take my child to. How is that gonna work well when he is taken as rarely as possible and possibly co-erced on the way and interrogated as to what was said afterwards? One can only hope that if he tells the counselor he "hates me" that alarm bells ring  and alienation is recognized.

The initial one hour with a court psychologist weighs to the advantage of an alienator as he/she can be the calmer one who has possession and the company of the child who mainly lives with him /her (so is naturally not stressed from missing child ) and able to influence and control the child was likely to have travelled to and from court with that parent. ( The child of course insists that they are not influenced.....See "Ryan Thomas" videos)...but how can they not be when with someone (vindictive) who has them 90 percent or more of the time? And isn't it reasonable for the parent missing a child desperatley to appear a little less calm? ...And of course, emotionally, some days are better than others. ......a day at court knowing all that is at stake....may not be your calmest because you are dealing with  a hugely emotional issue and in utter disbelief about the unfairness of what is happening. Oh yes, we are all advised to not have or show emotion.......but I think I'd be more worried about parents who appeared to have none in regards to their own children not being part of their lives!

I am concerned about the issue of family report writers and the proof of Parental Alienation.  For the expense, it all still feels like a lucky/unlucky dip where there is no guarantee of their belief's regarding alienation and awareness of the degree and types of alienation that can occur.............as so much of it occurs gradually......almost subtly...( and some is far from subtle).

I would like to find a clinical psychologist who understands and deals with Parental Alienation in Melbourne. Unfortuanately Dr Craig Childress does not live in Australia. If anyone has any suggestions, I would be grateful. My child and our relationship is far too important to be left to mere chance.

Hi

Hi I have not had contact with my  2  daughters for a year now. The courts did nothing as they are 15 and 17 years of age. The father and I have separated and they chose to align with him.

Looking for clinical psychologist in Perth

I also am looking for a psychologist in Perth who understands the damage it has done to my daughters 7, 16 and 17.  

My ex-husband turned my elder daughters against me and they now hate me.  He then abducted my 7yr old and his family lawyer handed up a notice of abuse against me in the WA Family Law Court 2 days later and they took my beautiful girls away from me.  4 months later I haven't seen or heard from them and they have had no counselling whatsoever even though I've pleaded with their lawyer to get them proper psychological counselling.  The Independent expert psychologist Dr Phil Watts was recommended by their lawyer but it was only to assess who they should live with.  

Under the Family Law Act they should have received Compulsory Family Counselling and I just don't understand why they have been denied access to this.  Also too the Family Law Act is centred around shared custody to be in the best interests of the children.  Our family court has not followed either and it is my daughters that have suffered.

My 7 yr old would not understand why her Mum has not seen her for 4 months and from the report I received she is scared of me kidnapping her.  I have tried every dept I can think of to get them help.  Please if anyone does know the name of a good psychologist in a Perth that can help to get them the counselling they need before they become a statistic of our Family Law System.  Mandy
