Two Courses Completed - Two New Courses

As you may know, we have just completed two courses that are currently available for purchase. They can be found on the link to the website. Each course is composed of three one hour sessions, and are downloadable to your computer. The courses are: Treatment of Alienated Children: What Works, What Doesn't, and Why and Family Court: What Works, What Doesn't and Why. In the first course, the current treatment modalities are reviewed, as are all the various treatment strategies. Inquiry is made into learning the ingredients for success in the treatment of alienated children. There are clear answers here, and this course identifies what to look for and what to avoid. The second course addresses how the Family Court System operates. It is well known that Family Court is probably the most unpredictable court system of all. The reasons for this are made clear, and, in spite of this quality, the basic principles for success are identified. Many are surprised to learn that these elements have less to do with the law and the facts of the case than they do with the case presentation.

The feedback received thus far has been very positive. I very much encourage your feedback on all of the courses offered. I learn a great deal from hearing your thoughts and suggestions, and appreciate your unique perspectives. Even though PAS is a very patterned phenomenon, it is also the case that all situations are unique, within this pattern. It is this uniqueness that helps us to further understand, so your feedback is appreciated.

I am also excited to announce that two new courses are under construction, as we speak. They are each two hours in length (two one hour sessions). The first course (being recorded December 3 and December 10) is entitled: Parenting Alienated Children. The second course is also in reference to the Parenting of Alienated Children, but is specifically focused on the unique challenges of the upcoming holidays. Both of these courses are focused on the "do's and don'ts" of dealing with children when contact may still be occurring, but with the children being alienated from you. We will discuss the behavioral principals that have been shown to be most effective in this challenging context. We will use real life situations and discuss the various options in their management, and walk through specific examples. Information about these courses can be gotten by contacting us through the website, as the details have not yet found themselves onto the site.
