Parental Alienation in Divorce with Dr. Amy J. L. Baker, Part 1

High conflict divorce and separation in the family courts consumes the majority of the court’s time and resources and provides the most frustration and confusion.

This is the first episode in our new High Conflict Divorce series in which we will interview leading experts from the high conflict divorce world — attorneys, counselors, custody evaluators, researchers, mediators, and those within the courts themselves.

In this episode – the first of two – we talk with renowned parental alienation expert Dr. Amy J.L. Baker, the author of nine books including Co-parenting with a Toxic Ex, The High-Conflict Custody Battle, and Adult Children of Parental Alienation Syndrome. Alienation is one of the most challenging, confusing, and terrifying events in one’s life. Bill and Megan talk with Dr. Baker about:

  • Alienation defined
  • Terminology: parental alienation or some other term
  • Prevalence in divorce/separation
  • Whether it is increasing or not
  • Causes of alienation
  • Research on adult children of parental alienation
  • Whether adult children of parental alienation mostly connect or not with parents someday
  • Recommendation to parents whose children have cut them off?
