Presentation Topic: Parental Alienation

Our guest from the low country, Helen Wheeler, will discuss parental alienation as a family systems issue and will talk about Minuchin, Haley and Bowen and cross generational alliances, enmeshment, triangles and boundary issues.  Helen will also discuss the extreme level of enmeshment involved in parental alienation and give a definition of parental alienation.  Psychological maltreatment and domestic violence may be viewed as a part of PA, and that landscape of the topic will also be discussed.
