Below is a difficult to watch but powerful lecture by Dr Jennifer Hardman on parenting stereotypes within the context of parental alienation.
Dr. Harman is an Associate Professor of Psychology at Colorado State University and is the Program Coordinator for the Applied Social & Health Psychology Program.
Poignant points were:
- How easy parental alienation can occur
- How parenting stereotypes ‘buy in’ to the unknowing ‘sympathisers’ of the alienating parent
- Parental alienation being addressed as a form of child abuse
I am an alienated parent of three. Part-time psychiatric nurse, part-time writer. I am also an online activist against parental alienation. I use my knowledge of mental health and lived experience of parental alienation to promote awareness of parental alienation.
