Parental Alienation in Divorce with Dr. Amy J.L. Baker, Part 2

High conflict divorce and separation in the family courts consumes the majority of the courts’ time and resources and provides the most frustration and confusion.

This is the second of a two-part episode with Dr. Amy J.L. Baker in our new High Conflict Divorce series, in which we interview leading experts from the high conflict divorce world – attorneys, counselors, custody evaluators, researchers, mediators and those within the courts themselves.

In this episode Dr. Amy J.L. Baker, parental alienation expert and author of 9 books, including Co-parenting with a Toxic Ex; The High-Conflict Custody Battle; and Adult Children of Parental Alienation Syndrome will talk with Bill and Megan about:

  • Whether favored parents ever recognize that they’re doing it
  • Parental alienation vs. parental estrangement
  • Recommendations for lawyers when a child resists or refuses contact
  • Tips for what can be done in mild, moderate, severe cases
  • Tips for lawyers and therapists
  • Tips for parents and grandparents
  • Programs that can help reconnect a child with a rejected parent
