Dr. Darnall does a great job of diagnosing the dynamics of this problem. A great resource... (Dr. Archibald D. Hart, author of Helping Children Survive Divorce)
Children have a right to a loving relationship with both parents, and this book teaches us all how to ensure that this basic need is met. (Charlene C. Giannetti and Margaret Sagarese, authors of The Roller-Coaster Years: Raising Your Child Through the Maddening Yet Magical Middle School Years)

A noncustodial parent FALSELY ACCUSED can be totally destroyed by a BPD parent and those who assist that BPD parent in denying the noncustodial parent all information, truth, contact, and relationships with a former spouse and CHILDREN basically FOREVER based totally on perjury (FALSE Allegations and criminal charges, lies, total deception) with zero evidence and zero witnesses to support those lies for obvious reasons (none exist!). State laws that inappropriately encourage, assist, and support a parent given sole custody by courts based solely on perjury and FALSE Allegations with WRONGFUL Convictions of INNOCENT noncustodial parents and others; are wrong and should be removed. They make it easy for someone to lie and make something up to forever deny information, contact, and relationships between CHILDREN and their noncustodial parent and others; which is wrong. Children denied information, truth, contact, and relationships with a noncustodial parent and others tend to grow up with multiple problems common to children forced to grow up that way.
Worse, those kids grow up thinking and believing lies and false information against the noncustodial parent and others that will forever inappropriately alienate them against that parent and others. They are generally told the noncustodial parent abandoned them, did not and does not love them or want to be with them (especially on a daily basis growing up), refused to provide for them, ABUSED and ENDANGERED them, refused to work and provide money for them when that becomes all but impossible with what government agents are able to say and do to make employment impossible by taking away the driver license and any professional license and income up to 60% of NET (take home) income from the noncustodial parent! NO ONE can function or exist on 40% of NET income with "child support" being stolen by a hateful, abusive, lying custodial spouse out to hurt and destroy someone hated and constantly traumatized, punished, and endangered because of perjury (lies and FALSE Allegations with WRONGFUL Convictions).
Noncustodial parents are repeatedly traumatized, terrorized, threatened, falsely arrested and incarcerated with court hearings demanding payment of child support while unable to function and exist while homeless, alone, and without transportation or an income. What is being said and done, especially to INNOCENT, FALSELY ACCUSED noncustodial parents is WRONG; and NO CHILD should ever be denied information, TRUTH, CONTACT, or RELATIONSHIPS with a parent; especially growing up as a young child and teen. There are ways for a child to have a relationship with any parent growing up regardless of what might be involved. Being forced to live in constant fear with ongoing daily trauma and abuses is wrong, and it does not just negatively affect the noncustodial parent and others; but affects a child and teen involved in that abusive, traumatic situation.
One of many books available and helpful for those having to deal with separation, divorce; especially with inappropriate denial of information, truth, contact, and relationships. Children are intended by GOD to have BOTH parents growing up no matter what, whenever that is possible. Things happen that make that impossible, but FALSE Allegations that result in WRONGFUL Convictions intended by hateful, malicious, personal plans and agendas by a spouse and others are not only wrong and destructive; but hurt and destroy the KIDS, negatively affecting them for life unless they know to seek and take advantage of available appropriate counseling and assistance from others who CARE and know what's involved and why.
One goal of being informed is to be prepared and able to avoid making things worse for everyone involved, and to protect and defend self and others (especially the kids).
Definitely worth the price to help loved ones make difficult -- and well thought-out so as not to cause irreparable damage -- decisions to others who are affected by same.
Please read this and get educated!!!!!!
Our Foundation is a worldwide Organization, and if it were not for the dedication, pivotal research and work that has been put forth in each addition of this series, there would be no understanding at all of the dynamics that happens to our children and parents.
Many parents and family members can finally begin to understand the underlying issues of "how this could even happen to children who once had a loving relationship with both parents". Some are even in denial thinking that they must have done something wrong to deserve this or a family member may feel that way as well without understanding all the intricate points of the psychology behind this Disorder.
We frequently use Dr. Darnall's books as reference points for our support groups and as speaking points in lectures around the world. Dr. Darnall's next book is already on order for us as we would hope for many other families going through alienation, so that everyone can understand that therapy for an alienated child is not the same treatment for a child with other psychological issues. It will specifically be helpful in the re-unification process of Alienated Children and Parents.
You wouldn't go to a foot doctor for a heart problem would you? This is why there are specialists in this field, and we are fortunate enough to work closely with such an intelligent PhD as Dr. Douglas Darnall.
We thank you Dr. Darnall! Your work is very helpful to many, and healing as well.
