Let UK Family Mediation Nottingham help you resolve family disputes.

Family Mediation

The Basics

In bitter separations in some cases, one of the parents may use the parental alienation technique to damage the relationship the children may have with the other parent.

Parental alienation syndrome happens out of anger but can be very dangerous to children, especially if they had a good relationship with the alienated parents.

Dealing with Parental Alienation

The alienating parents may think alienation will get the children to take their side, but in reality, the behaviour can harm the children emotionally.

In some cases, alienating parents can be so extreme as to abuse the children into disliking the other parent.

Children may behave in a hostile way when the alienating parent is around but when they are alone with the alienated parent, they change into happy children.

Family Peace

Alienating parents may become verbally abusive to children which will cause more damage to the mental health of the children.
One parent may instil fear into the alienated child to dislike the other parent. Parental alienation occurs often after a break down in relationship where one parent is a narcissist. 

And in extreme cases farce the child’s relationship into falsely accusing the alienated parent of physical abuse.
When the children do not side with the alienating parent, they may be subjected to physical or verbal abuse by the parent, which is very dangerous and the situation will require intervention.

In some cases, the court may suggest mediation to help evaluate the alienation problem and report to court for the appropriate action to be taken.
Mediation may greatly help stop the alienation problem.

Child Support with Mediation

The goal of mediation is to restore the relationship between the alienated parent and child and to see if there is a risk of child abuse. Parental alienation remains controversial but is recognised by the family courts.

Mediation may also include helping the parties identify areas of conflict or unresolved issues that need resolution in order to help build a stronger relationship.

Additionally, the mediator may recommend resources or organizations that can provide support for both parties during this difficult time.
