Thanks to the magic of the internet, even though Anna was not able to be at the event, we can still benefit now from the ideas she would have presented then! Anna looks at high conflict separations with implications for applying the law. She describes the effects on the child; how the law affects relationships with both the alienated and alienating parent. She shares up to date thinking on changes to the law currently being debated. When we get them, you will be able to read her notes here. Dominic Raeside helped fill in this gap on the day and provided this reference on the law.
Anna Gupta is a senior lecturer in the Department of social work at Royal Holloway University of London. Her extensive experience as a Children’s Guardian has led her to study and publish on decision making in the Family Courts. Anna has worked with alienating behaviours in several high profile family conflicts and her association and working with families with Karen Woodall of the Centre for Separated Families has led her to begin to engage in research in this field.
