Equality means equality for everyone.
Over the last 4 years of helping to host events on men’s issues in Vancouver I’ve met many Fathers that have experienced Parental Alienation. One day, suddenly, they’re not allowed to see the most important people in their lives…
Parental alienation is the process, and the result, of psychological manipulation of a child into showing unwarranted fear, disrespect or hostility towards a parent and/or other family members. It is a distinctive form of psychological abuse and family violence, towards both the child and the rejected family members, that occurs almost exclusively in association with family separation or divorce, particularly where legal action is involved.
It’s time a public conversation was had on this destructive practice that is harming more and more families. I’m pleased to announce CAFE Vancouver will be sponsoring an event on Parental Alienation featuring Dr. Edward Kruk, Associate Professor of Social Work @ UBC. Dr. Kruk will share his latest academic research on Parental Alienation from the perspective of alienated parents.
