Welcome to PA1
Attachment-Led 
Theory & Practice 
for 
Parental Alienation

Parental alienation is a complicated, problematic, specialist area of 
mental health, family functioning, social policy and law. 
Child Attachment and Family Trauma Training (CAFTT) 
is committed to providing modern, professional grade training in 

attachment & neuropsychology, focusing on improving family functioning, 
professional practice, outcomes related to child development and family welfare.

Parental alienation disrupts attachments, psycho-developmental prospects, and
quality of life for hundreds of thousands of children and families.

CAFTT's CPD accredited parental alienation training provides intensive, self-paced
learning and multiple-choice assessment to achieve Certification in
Attachment-Led Theory and Practice in Parental Alienation.

PA1’s intensive and CPD-accredited parental alienation training updates typical
approaches with modern attachment, family systems and neuropsychology.

Parental alienation’s vulnerabilities, triggers, strategies, behaviours and incremental
impacts on children's psychological functioning into adulthood are
detailed across 16 lectures spanning 13.5 hours.

The course critically and comparatively evaluates relevant law and practice.
Evidence-based, trauma-informed and risk-based assessments are provided
 to assist resolution of cases, with effective professional and court management.

Currently, there appears to be little or no other accredited, on demand training.
PA1 is aimed at providing an empirically structured, open access route to
understanding parental alienation and earning Continued Professional Development
accreditation points in this complicated and specialist field.

PA1 draws on the best practice and advice of some of the world’s top experts.
Years of interaction with the UK’s family court system corroborates the established
observational literature with an aetiological perspective using updated
attachment, neuropsychology and child development approaches.

The process of alienation and its stages are explained in detail,
alongside how each stage impacts on children and other family members.
The incremental results for children and other family members are provided in short, medium and long-term form.

The lectures are dual-designed as standalone references for
a fully informed presentation on important topics,
and to incrementally develop knowledge -
not just of parental alienation but the various issues
parents and professionals encounter when in the difficult position
of facing, or being tasked to assist,
where this type of parental manipulation may be ongoing.
Parental alienation is one of many types of damaging parental manipulation,
and often, the manipulation and persuasion of child professionals.

Understanding the processes and results of parental alienation may raise awareness and identification of other types of abuse inflicted on children
and concealed by manipulation of victims and professionals.
Importantly, PA1 addresses, in detail,the pathogenesis of
many mental health disorders arising from family interactions.

Each lecture is arranged around addressing
parental alienation as a mental health problem for the whole family unit,
focusing on processes and outcomes for each family member.

The course has more than 13.5 hours of intensive instruction across 16 lectures, making PA1 outstanding value for money. Obtaining the same level of knowledge from other sources would,
we suggest, be far more time consuming and expensive.

We offer the CPD version which has the same content as this open access
version but it also has short CPD assessments after each lecture to gain
Continued Professional Development Points.

Please return to ourhomepage if you would prefer to purchase the CPD version
which is 
open to parents, families and professionals alike.
