  1. It is truly a great and useful piece of information. I’m happy that you simply
    shared this useful information with us. Please keep us informed
    like this. Thanks for sharing.

  2. The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), which was signed by Japan in 1994, has already recognized that a child has a right to access both of their parents. Article 9, Section 3, mandates: “States Parties shall respect the right of the child who is separated from one or both parents to maintain personal relations and direct contact with both parents on a regular basis, except if it is contrary to the child’s best interests.”

    Sadly, the children’s human rights enshrined in this treaty have yet to be recognized in Japan.…/japan-failing-to-meet-com…/

  3. The biggest fight against parental alienation has officially started with the launch of a new campaign group with connections across the world.

    On the run-up to the launch the National Association of Alienated Parents has already sent out a 175 page document demanding the law is changed to protect children and parents alike when a marriage or relationship hits the rocks.

    The document – which you can read here – has been put together by lawyers, psychologists and alienation experts and has been sent to social services, Cafcass, Britain’s courts and Parliament.

  4. Excellent read, I just passed this onto a friend who was doing a little research on depression. And he just bought me lunch since I found it for him. Therefore Thank you for lunch!

  5. Shrouded in layers of complexity—ordeals in divorce and custody play out that often leave one to wonder whose interest they have in mind when determining outcomes.

    Often times the players you find arguing before the courts in these types of cases are quite familiar and comfortable with one another—the faces and names appearing and tasked with hearing the facts and finding just solutions are regulars in these courtrooms. While each case is unique—the treatment, mannerisms and how they play out is bizarrely not!

    What happens when outcomes take a backseat to convenience, money and in many cases systems of patronage?

  6. The aim of the Conference is to provide a forum for presentation and discussion of the last research, professional practice issues and developments in understanding parental alienation. The Conference is for practitioners and researchers who are interested in learning more about what parental alienation is, how to identify it and what to do about it. The conference will include keynote presentations from Dr Demosthenes Lorandos, Karen Woodall and Nick Woodall who are world renowned experts in parental alienation. The conference will showcase current research and professional practice issues on parental alienation.

    On Thursday 18th and Friday 19th October, there will be two workshops:
