Dr. Childress’s work is, quite truthfully, the inspiration for this site. I believe he has an approach that can effectively break out of the paradigm of a targeted parent living through years of financial and emotional strain or ruin in a court system that is by and large not equipped to deal with what is going on.
I discovered his work in June 2015, after seeing the effect my ex-wife was having on my daughter. Even though I have not lost my relationship with my young daughter, it is clear that my ex-wife will not be stopping in her efforts to sever the connection that remains.
After innumerable posts and videos that went on about the “syndrome” of Parental Alienation and the long almost impossible sounding road it looked like I was destined to go down, he offered a decidedly different approach.
See the series of videos he made on what is happening and how to effectively approach with it: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_ZRgxrpZJs2RD3U-VDPCTw
3 things that he said early on in the videos I watched that stood out:
- This is not a “syndrome” up for debate. It is a cluster of very observable and verifiable behaviors exhibited by a child who is being systematically abused to subvert his or her own natural instincts to bond with both parents.
- The mental health and legal system is , at the moment, not equipped to deal with what is actually going on and,
- The way to save your own child or children is by helping to save all the children.
I will be regularly re posting his videos and materials as they become available to provide another place people can find out about his work. So far it has been limited to a small audience. Rather than wait for someone else to do it, I am getting involved to help grow it now.
To find out more about him and the work he is doing, visit his blog. I have posted all the videos I can find in the videos section of this site.
I recommend getting his book “Foundations”. You can find here it on Amazon.
