As I continue with my research alongside my therapeutic work with families, I am building a new approach to working with families affected by parental alienation which combines trans-generational psychotherapy with psycho-genealogy to provide a framework for understanding and working with the mind of the alienated child.
In doing this work what we aim for is to separate out the layers of generational influence and the artefacts which lied buried in the psyche of the family.
And then we examine the location of the family in space and time to understand further what influences drive the outcomes seen.
In doing so we widen our lens and stand back as far as we can to gain perspective.
Thus objects view through the rear view mirror, appear differently at different times.
It is worth using this approach to exhume some of the influences which affect us as we do this work.
