In divorce litigation, family law professionals can play a crucial role in supporting children's healthy emotional and psychological development following the break-up of the intact family structure, and in helping the family transition into a new separated family structure. Children love their parents, both parents, and all children want the love of both parents in return. However, in the context of high inter-spousal conflict children are often compelled by the pathology of a narcissistic parent to choose sides in the spousal conflict against the other parent.In these circumstances of high-conflict divorce, minor's counsel, guardians ad litem, and family law judiciary become crucial to helping resolve the child's triangulation into the spousal conflict and restoring the child's healthy developmental trajectory. Recognizing and helping to resolve the influence of the narcissistic parent's pathology on the child is crucial to the role of the legal professional in supporting the family's successful transition to a new post-divorce separated-family structure of independent families and shared co-parenting.In The Narcissistic Parent, Dr. Childress provides a brief primer on the features of the narcissistic personality parent that impact the role of legal professionals working with children and families surrounding divorce and child custody issues.

Assessing the cause of parent-child conflict following divorce can be a complex undertaking, especially in the context of allegations that one parent is exercising negative parental influence on the child that undermines the child's relationship with the other parent. While securing testimony or conducting an extensive child custody evaluation are ways to assess the possible causes of parent-child conflict and allegations of negative parental influence, a more scientifically-based approach offers an alternative solution. Single-case research designs are an established scientific methodology for determining causality as well as treatment efficacy. A Single-Case Assessment and Remedy protocol offers the Court an empirically based approach for systematically collecting the information on child and family relationships that is needed to address the custody decisions before the Court.

Half of all marriages end, and, when they do, most parents hope to achieve a “good divorce” in which they can amicably raise their children with their former spouse. Unfortunately, about 20% of divorces are high-conflict, involving frequent visits to court, allegations of abuse, and chronic disagreements regarding parenting schedules. In response to this conflict, some children become aligned with one parent against the other – even a parent who has done nothing to warrant the hostile rejection of their formerly loving children. These “targeted” parents suffer from the loss of time with their children, the pain of watching their children become distant, even cruel, and the uncertainty of not knowing if and when their children will come back to them. These parents are on a painful journey with an uncertain outcome. Surviving Parental Alienation fills the tremendous need for concrete help for these parents. Too often parental alienation stories that are shared by word of mouth, on the internet, or in books depict unending pain and frightening outcomes. Surviving Parental Alienation provides true stories and information about parents who have reconnected with their lost and stolen children, and offers better insight and understanding into what exactly parental alienation is and how to handle it. Targeted parents are desperate to be understood and to find cause for hope, even as they search for answers. Surviving Parental Alienation is where they can start to find this hope.
