Prof. Edward Kruk President of The International Council of Shared Parenting, in Malta
Recommending A Four Pillar Approach to Reducing the Harms of Parental Alienation.
Happy Parenting – Malta (For Happier Children) is organising an informative meeting at the Auditorium Attard Parish Centre on Sunday 28th May between 6pm-9pm. The main speaker will be Prof. Edward Kruk who will elaborate on the Implications of Clinical and Empirical Research for Child and Family Law, Policy and Practice.
During the first half of his presentation, Prof. Kruk will examine the unique features of Parental Alienation, what sets it apart as a form of family violence, and what makes it a form of both child abuse and family violence. During the second half he will examine strategies for combatting and eliminating Parental Alienation, in which Prof. Kruk will outline a four pillar or four staged approach to addressing the problem: consisting of child protection intervention, prevention, treatment, and legal intervention. A multifaceted approach is needed to deal with this complex social problem created largely by adversarial legal systems of family separation. Our solutions need to be both individual and systemic, both micro and macro-level interventions. Prof. Kruk will discuss (1) recognition of Parental Alienation as a specific form of family violence, warranting a criminal justice response; (2) recognition of Parental Alienation as a specific form of child abuse, warranting a child protection response; (3) prevention of Parental Alienation, and establishing shared parental responsibility as the foundation of family law; and (4) treatment of Parental Alienation, including best practices in regard to legal and mental health intervention with targeted parents, and parent-child reunification programs.
