The primary purpose of this website is to provide the knowledge and understanding you need to personally deal with the ramifications of parental alienation or to help those who do. Thus, from a broad perspective this website and my resources are written for a wide array of readers including those directly affected by parental alienation as well as for extended family members, significant others, counselors, social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists, medical doctors, pediatricians, child custody evaluators, family mediators, family law attorneys, judiciary, police officers, school administrators, school teachers, and policy makers.

From a personal perspective, you will likely have a clearer understanding of the differences between realistic parent-child estrangement and unrealistic alienation processes. From a mental health perspective, it will offer information and resources to help alienated families. When working with these types of family atrocities, it is not business as usual. From a legal perspective, it will offer more tangible and scientifically valid data to lend support to judicial decisions in child custody litigation matters.

The most powerful tools to help deal with the effects of parental alienation are education, acknowledgement, kindness, caring, compassion as well as the will and commitment to help stop it from destroying the lives of so many children and families.

Please email or telephone my office to let me know if you would be interested in participating in any future research studies I conduct on this topic or if you, your group or organization would be interested in sponsoring or attending any of my seminars, webinars or workshops.

Additionally, I am very pleased to announce that preliminary outcomes of our cutting-edge Family Reflections Reunification Program reveal a 95% success rate in re-establishing healthy relationships between rejected parents and their children. The FRRP is currently accepting court-ordered referrals.  Our intensive therapeutic and experiential program is the first of its kind worldwide. Our retreat is nestled in a serene, tranquil, nurturing and caring home environment in the heart of the Okanagan Valley in beautiful British Columbia. Our purpose is to help rebuild loving bonds between parents and children, relationships damaged or destroyed by unjustifiable alienation.  Our therapeutic approaches are based on the most-up-to-date scientific evidence. For more information, click here

I dedicate this website to all the wonderful children and youth that I have had the pleasure of working with throughout my clinical career whom have been so tragically affected and caught in the middle of unnecessary family alienation. Thank you so ever much for trusting me and working with me to make positive changes in your lives. I will forever be indebted to all the lessons that you taught me about this type of family abuse. Your stories will never be forgotten in both my memory and my heart.

Well wishes,

Dr. Kathleen M. Reay, Parental Alienation Expert,

On January 9th, 2014, Dr. Steven Miller and Linda Gottlieb, LMFT, two renowned and highly respected US experts on parental alienation and estrangement, testified at the Connecticut State Legislative Task Force on Shared Parenting and Parental Alienation. Dr. Miller mentioned that there are only two programs in North America that successfully work for the worst cases of alienation.
