A Family's Heartbreak: A Parent's Introduction to Parental Alienation (Book) - 5/20/2009 4:53:20 PM
This book is a powerful—no, gruesome—story about a mother who aggressively turns her son against his father. It’s a gut-wrenching story that reads like a fast-paced, emotionally-charged novel but what’s frightening is that it really happened. The story is about a concept called parental alienation where one parent deliberately damages or destroys a healthy relationship between his or her child and the child’s other parent. Co-author Michael Jeffries shares the contents of a detailed journal that he kept throughout his family ordeal, including his then-wife’s toxic behavior that led to the destruction of the father-son relationship. He includes detailed conversations that occurred during therapy with co-author, Dr. Joel Davies, as well as lawyers, judges and friends who played critical roles in the story. When I picked up the book I knew nothing about parental alienation nor did I have any particular reason to know more about it. But parental alienation is a force that creates massive destruction in families and in this case it makes for one hell of an emotionally charged read. For those with little to no interest in parental alienation, I’m confident you will find A Family’s Heartbreak as compelling as any fast-paced who-done-it, but throughout your journey you’re likely to become enraged as I did that fellow human beings can be so destructive to other human beings—especially children who may live forever with the pain and scars. For those who’re in the unfortunate position to be intimately familiar with parental alienation or who have a professional clinical interest in the subject, the authors offer a bundle of suggestions focused on coping and finding solutions to the condition and they offer up their observations about the role of the legal and judicial system, neither of which is very pretty.
