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 of learning.   

 Currently, there appears to be little or no other accredited training in the UK.   
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.  

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.    

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

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. Much family pathology is trans-generational, meaning some children may be born to endure long-lasting psychological distress, in the absence of informed assessment, identification and intervention.  

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. 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 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.
