Social Alienation and Parental Alienation
In this webinar (see below) aimed at social workers, sociologists and social psychologists, I present to TASA (The Australian Sociological Association) recent sociological research situating parental alienation as a form of social alienation as a clinical, social and public health concern in families and society.
Identicide and Perspecticide: The Cancel Culture No One is Talking About
Social alienation in families presents as parental alienation. Its behaviours coerce children into cancelling a family member’s identity leading to their unwarranted rejection. Rejected family members may present with hallmark social and psychological sequelae of an alienating family. It is a form of identicide and perspecticide.
Sociological Implications of Parental Alienation
Sociological research proposes that alienation in the family is a structuring alienating discourse reflecting broader societal alienation. A sociological view of parental alienation offers a structural perspective on social alienation in the family and its implications for public health policy. It outlines de-alienation as a social and structural response not addressed in the current psychological and legal discourse.
