“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, and expecting a different result.” As I have begun working more with alienated parents, I am finding what I believed at first to be an anomaly, although it

Karen Woodall, I have been in a difficult decision since reading one of your recent blogs (Karen’s blog).. In your blog you indicated that you are beginning a personal “research” study (without IRB oversight or review) with adult children of child abuse and childhood trauma. In your blog, you announced that you had begun recruiting … Continue reading Difficult Position
Well, I had so much hope that when Karen identified her “new pathology” as a Dissociative Identity Disorder (multiple personality) that she had finally returned to established constructs for describing pathology – you know, the ideas and terms that EVERYBODY else in professional psychology uses. I was wrong. She’s wandering back into her grandiosity on … Continue reading Diagnosis, Karen. Diagnosis.
I have a client. A targeted parent father. He so very much loved his daughter. She’s nine. Her mother created all sorts of barriers to the father’s love for his daughter. Most recently was an effort by the mother to replace the father with her new boyfriend. The father was set to actively fight for … Continue reading What makes you think we have time?
I’m worried about Karen Woodall’s psychological state, but I’m in Los Angeles. Can someone over in England please check on her to make sure she’s okay. Whenever I sign into my blog I get a newsfeed panel, and her blog has been showing up in this panel recently. I typically don’t read them.

Making professional recommendations that would limit the time that targeted parents share with their children to anything … Continue reading Court-Involved Clinical Psychology and Child Custody Decision-Making
DSM-5 Narcissistic Personality Disorder Criterion 1: “Has a grandiose sense of self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements).” Karen Woodall, you assert that you are an “expert”… I have a quiz for you. You’re a mental health person, right? So you should know symptom terms and definitions. … Continue reading Karen, I have a quiz for you…
I’m educating parents and legal professionals about professional psychology because the forensic psychology people are awful – just awful. They have no knowledge, they apply no knowledge. They just make things up. They shouldn’t be doing that. They should be applying the established knowledge of professional psychology to their assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of pathology. … Continue reading Attachment and the Psychoanalytic School of Psychology
Karen recently posted a blog about Fairy Tales and splitting that was kind of all over the place, but the central premise is that she’s some sort of expert on “splitting” and she’s sort of simultaneously discovering splitting and reporting on her discovery. There’s so much nonsense being put forth, I need to address it. … Continue reading My goodness, Karen Woodall is full of… nonsense.
