How Court Ordered Counselors Alienate Children From Loving Parents

Encouraging negative views:

If the counselor consistently encourages negative views or discussions about the alienated parent without valid reasons, it can contribute to the child's alienation.

Ignoring or dismissing the alienated parent's perspective:

A counselor should strive for objectivity and fairness, considering the viewpoints of both parents. Dismissing or ignoring the concerns or perspectives of the alienated parent can fuel the alienation process.

Failing to address the alienating behaviors:

If the counselor overlooks or fails to address the alienating behaviors of the favored parent, such as denigration or interference with the other parent's relationship with the child, it can perpetuate the alienation dynamics.

Allowing the child to control the sessions:

If the counselor allows the child to dictate the agenda or dominate the counseling sessions, it could reinforce the child's alignment with the favored parent and disregard the need for a balanced approach.

Not promoting reunification efforts:

A counselor should actively work towards fostering a healthy relationship between the child and the alienated parent. Failing to encourage and facilitate reunification efforts can hinder the healing process and maintain the alienation.

Dismissing evidence of alienation:

If the counselor dismisses or minimizes clear signs of parental alienation, such as documented instances of manipulation or false allegations, it can undermine the chances of resolving the issue.

It is essential for court-ordered counselors to adhere to professional ethics and standards, promote a balanced perspective, and prioritize the well-being of the child and the integrity of the family system.
