Learn about parental alienation here
Parental alienation is a recurring problem that affects many families who are experiencing conflict, separation or divorce. It is the situation where the alienating parent teaches the child to reject, fear and avoid having contact with the other parent.
Nonetheless, it is still relatively unknown, and often goes unnoticed or is misunderstood even by the psychologists and legal professionals involved in the mediation and divorce process.
To shed light on the issue, Parent24 has gathered a panel of five local professionals who will discuss the intricacies of the issue of parental alienation in South Africa, from the legal side of the topic to the emotional impact on families.
Subscribers are invited to join us for the live webinar and to submit questions to our panel of experts.
