Parental Alienation Australia and New Zealand Pty. Ltd. (PAANZ) announce the launch of their Facebook page and website to help assist parents, children and families experiencing Parental Alienation and professionals dealing with the phenomenon of Parental Alienation.
Parental Alienation occurs when one parent is unreasonably alienated from their child/children usually by their partner during high-conflict separation and divorce situations. There is a conscious attempt to undermine what was a loving relationship between the child and the parent until the relationship is unreasonably severed by the child.
The outcomes of Parental Alienation on not only the effected parent but also the extended family and even the alienating child long-term are often devastating and the effect on the wider family social unit is significant.
Examples of Parental Alienation occasionally play out in the Australian Media. The fairly recent example of the story surrounding the ‘Italian Sisters’ that were removed from their father in Italy and taken to the Sunshine Coast in contravention of the Hague Convention is an obvious case. There are other occasions where parents take the law into their own hands, sometimes with much more dire outcomes.
PAANZ is dedicated to the provision of assistance to parents experiencing the effects of Parental Alienation and to creating active support networks for these people as well as professionals trying to help them deal with the many issues they experience along the way.
PAANZ has been established to educate, motivate and advocate about Parental Alienation. Our vision is to be the peak body and reference point in Australia and New Zealand for information and resources concerning Parental Alienation. We aim to develop world class interventions and communication pathways that will facilitate alienated parents, children and practitioners connecting with one another. PAANZ is also conducting research into Parental Alienation more generally and into the development of more effective interventions by the therapeutic and legal communities.
