The Remarkable Ryan Thomas

Ryan Thomas is a grown up child of Alienation. Triggered by chance by what a work colleague said, he realised as an adult what had been happening. Eventually he reconnected with his Dad. Ryan has now created a goldmine of online resources. He is

A Tardis of a textbook on PA

Dr Wilfrid von Boch-Galhau’s book on Parental Alienation (2013) is now available to buy online in its English translation.  Dr Who?  No … Dr von Boch-Galhau! But like Dr Who’s time-travelling police box Tardis, this book is much bigger on

Rewind’s torn-up letters (with subtitles)

Recently we blogged about making more of the Dutch film “Rewind”. The clip ended with the children writing a letter to the judge. Here is a clip that we showed before. Again it’s about letters – the mother’s to her distant children. This time we can give

Rewind: Make more of this wonderful film

We featured one scene from a Dutch TV documentary before – The two truths of torn up letters. There is an (as yet) unpublished English-subtitled version called: Rewind. We must find ways to make much more of it.  The full story plainly underlines several key lessons

Pairing up Abduction and Alienation

What’s the difference between Parental Child Abduction and Parental Child Alienation? Not a lot. Recently looking at cults and hostage-taking, we saw how close Abduction and Alienation were. Abduction is a quick way to do the same as Alienation does slowly.

We are family – Oh no you’re not!

Parental Alienation patterns are serious but not weird. They’re extremes of normal relationship spectrums. We know the inalienable experience of ‘being family’. We’ve had the unpleasant experience when that is shaken. This helps us understand the extremes of the alienation experience.
