Do any of your clients have a narcissistic or borderline spouse or ex? This talk is for you. Join Join Steven Blakely in a review of how Parental Alienation Syndrome or PAS is a continuing family pathology that endangers a significant number of children and families in the United States today. It is driven by a pattern of Narcissistic/(Borderline) parenting that repeats across generations unless it is recognized, diagnosed and treated. Learn the challenges of dealing with divorced or separated families in which a Narcissistic/ (Borderline) parent turns the child/children against the other parent in such a way as to alienate the affections and the bond of the child with that parent.   Being a legal and mental health problem, PAS requires a broad and deep level of professional training and understanding to diagnose and treat. Explore with Steven how many professionals including judges, lawyers, and mental health providers are not aware that PAS is a "child endangerment issue rather than a child-custody issue.” Discuss the need to educate mental health professionals, those in the legal professions and legislators to adequately address this issue. Review need to address custody in an appropriate manner so children can be protected from lifelong psychological and emotional damage. 

Steven, in addition to being a Registered Psychotherapist with training and certification in Emotional Freedom Technique, NeuroLinguistic Programming, and Hypnotherapy, has experienced PAS.   Cost is buying lunch at Morning Story – which has great food and has supported CAP meetings for years.  Hope you can join us.
