YouTube - The pain we suffer from Parental Alienation

YouTube - The pain we suffer from Parental Alienation Another good YouTube video bringing awareness and understanding of Parental Alienation. Mum's and Dad's alienate their children in our perjury free Family Court System that facilitates and profits from the process of alienation.

YouTube - Amy Baker Talking about PAS + There are also other Amy Baker videos to view on YouTube; for a very good understanding and definition of PA & PAS.
*World wide AWARENESS, EDUCATION and 'THERAPY' mandatory for ALIENATED CHILDREN/SIBLINGS & TARGETED PARENT'S. The Family Court is full to overflowing with cases of PA.
I am contacted by parent's who, tell me their 8 & 10 year old children are being left in the care of an alienating parent under the banner of
"children's wishes" or in " the best interest's of the child".
According to Family Court policy, A 12 year old child has the right to choose which parent they want to live with. The child just has to say they, "dont want to see the other parent" & the Family Court grant's them their wish. If, there was no alienating tactics taking place and the parent's were co-operative post separation, then 'maybe'? Children also say they don't want to go to school or to the dentist, but we make them go!
...Ideally, a child should never have to make this choice! Dont alienate your child from their loving parent. Parental Alienation is psychological and emotional child abuse.

Why Parental Alienation is the Act of an Emotionally Abusive Bully « A Shrink for Men

Why Parental Alienation is the Act of an Emotionally Abusive Bully « A Shrink for Men * A good over-view of a, 'Parent' who uses their children to punish their former partner. The current Family Court System is the perjury free arena that facilitates Parental Alienation. Alienating a parent from a child's life is emotional and psychological child abuse. The Family Court must take a stand on Parental Alienation!

Divided lives | The Australian

Divided lives | The Australian Magazine A great and timely article, about time!
The Family Court System is shocking!!! Our case was cited as an extreme case of Parental Alienation in 2006. I have not had any contact with my two oldest children for more than five years now, and not because I am a bad parent, or because, I harmed my children in any way. My children were alienated from me due to my former partner's extreme emotional behaviour and his quest for revenge. He used 'our' children and the current, perjury free, Family Court arena to punish me for the break down of our 14 year relationship. The Judge noted that my former partner is, "incapable of promoting a relationship between the children and their Mother and that this would inpact on them for the rest of their live's". I was offered time, five years has passed, I grieve daily for the loss of contact with my two oldest children and that our yougest daughter has been separated from her siblings due to their Father's ongoing alienating behaviour.
The Family Court must take a stand in regards to Parental Alienation. Shared care does not work with people who do not like to share!

'Tea Meditations' - 1000 Wishes - Ukitopia Festival 2010

Posted by Picasa

The Ukitopia Festival weekend was 'fantastic'! A wonderful reflection of the many creatively talented inhabitants, who live in and around Uki village.
'Tea Meditations'
-1000 Wishes-
Installation: Debby Cook.
Ukitopia Arts Collective Festival November, 2010

The 'Teapot' installation measuring 2.7m high x 4m diam,steel frame/strong/ demountable structure [crafted by Ron Cox]. 12 removable panels made of wire/paper & glue formed the sides of the teapot. Community members, and all the children from Uki Public School and visitors to the festival were invited to engage with the installation by writing or drawing their 'wish' onto a used teabag. [I, 'drunk' and collected all the teabags provided in the installation since May 2010, Mothers Day]. All the teabag 'wishes' were glued to the panels of the teapot. Many of the wishes were read out at the opening ceremony on Saturday evening. I was inspired and full of 'hope' as I read every thoughtful 'wish' I glued to the 'Teapot'.
The 'Teapot' was lit-up with flashing, coloured, rope lights on Saturday evening and many danced inside the 'Teapot' to the great music being played on the main stage.
We were blessed with 'rainless' clouds for most of Sunday and I spent the day gluing all the teabag wishes onto the 'Teapot'. We got very close to covering the whole 'Teapot'. I believe there are over 900 teabag wishes on the 'Teapot'!
I had a wonderfully, happy time for the whole festival weekend, and I wish to kindly thank the organisers of the Ukitopia Arts Collective for the opportunity to create! ...Life is Art

*My art practise brings awareness to > Parental Alienation < no matter what the installation. Copies of the Parental Alienation Awareness Organisation Brochure were available inside the 'Teapot'and well received.

YouTube - Parental Alienation/Child Abuse

YouTube - Parental Alienation/Child Abuse Great Awareness! Parental Alienation is emotional child abuse. Demand! the Family Courts take a stand in regards to dealing with Parental Alienation cases

Welcome Back, Pluto™: A DVD for Coping with Parental Alienation

Welcome Back, Pluto™: A DVD for Coping with Parental Alienation I have heard and read that this is an excellent DVD in regards to understanding Parental Alienation. I am very interested in therapy, to assist alienated children regain their loving bond with their alienated parent. Family Courts do order therapy for child and parent to re-concile in alienation cases, but if the parent refuses therapy the child remains alienated.

*Parental Alienation is psychological child abuse.
*Dont alienate your child from a loving parent because of your own emotional needs.
*Parental Alienation Awareness Organisation is a World wide organisation bringing awareness and education to Parental Alienation.
*The Family Court of Australia and worldwide, fails daily, in it's duty of care; to every child and family, it does not assist with family re-conciliation, especially when alienation tactics are recognised and the associated behaviours demonstrated in the alienated child's behaviour. Court ordered therapies when, ordered, must be implemented, if the child is ever to have a relationship with an alienated parent. Doing nothing about Parental Alienation is psychological child abuse and the alienation of a parent from a child's life due to PA will, impact on the child's emotional and psychological well being for the rest of their life.*click on yellow high-lighted text[heading] to go to link.

I was approached by uKITOPIA aRTS cOLLECTIVE to do the 'wishing flags' for the Ukitopia Festival. I suggested using teabags??? & the concept has become a 2.7m high x 4m wide steel teapot frame [constructed by Ron Cox] & there are 12 panels made of wire/paper&glue, that hang from the frame & form the sides of the teapot gallery. Approximately 80 teabags cover each panel. I have collected approx 500 teabag wishes to date. A "huge thankyou" to all the children @ Uki Public School who happily & creatively added their wishes [several!!!] to the teapot. "Thanks", also to the people that come along to the workshops on a Saturday afternoon from 12 > 2pm [& later] @ Uki Village. Liz from Happy High Herbs is also there, weaving the 'Welcoming Arch' for the festival. All Welcome! "FREE FUN"!!! The 'teapot gallery' will feature at the Ukitopia Festival and all People attending the festival are welcome to come inside the teapot and draw,write or collage their wish onto a teabag[supplied]and then hang or stick it onto the teapot.

Family Court of Australia - Finding a better way: A Bold Departure from the Traditional Common Law Approach to the Conduct of Legal Proceedings - April 2007

Family Court of Australia - Finding a better way: A Bold Departure from the Traditional Common Law Approach to the Conduct of Legal Proceedings - April 2007 This is also an excellent publication: This publication sets out the history and experience[INCLUDING THE FAMILY COURT'S FAILINGS!!!]This publication is an important record that led to the decision to pilot a new approach. A huge 'THANKYOU' to Chief Justice Alastair Nicholson, and a small group of Judges and Court Staff, who, recognised the problems caused by the traditional trial methods and sought to find a solution to them.

*In regards to the Family Court's jurisdiction:

"The High Court held that when dealing with allegations of abuse the Family Court is not required to make a finding of wether particular individuals have inflicted abuse or neglect, which is the role of Criminal Courts".[page.22]

*See Family Law Amendment[Shared Parental Responsibility] Act 2006[Cth] Appendix A

The Family Court profits from family dysfunction! MEDIATE! DON'T ALIENATE!

The 21 August 2010 was ELECTION DAY in Australia.I took the opportunity to stage a personal protest,to bring awareness to whoever the Prime Minister is? that something must be done in regards to the failings of a 35 year old Family Justice System which is incapable of protecting a child's human right, to a continuous relationship with a parent/sibling/ and extended family members. Parental alienation thrives due to the alienating behaviour's of a parent and a perjury free Family Court arena and due to the Family Court not taking a stand in regards to Parental Alienation.
I 'gate crashed' the 2010 Tweed Valley Banana Festival Parade] wearing a cut&pasted sign, with the message 'Fix Family Court Prime Minister'
I printed 100 copies of the PAAO [Parental Alienation Awareness Organisation] brochure and handed them out as I walked along in the parade. The support was great!!! and most encouraging! Many comments could be heard as people read
the sign and they were all in support of the need to fix the Family Court.

To download a copy of the PAAO [Parental Alienation Awareness Organisation]brochure I handed out whilst walking in the parade go to > This is a very informative brochure in regards to understanding Parental Alienation.

***July 2010 I was elected to the board of directors of the Parental Alienation Awareness Organization. This is a volunteer position and I am proud and willing to be part of a worldwide organisation, who's mission is to bring awareness and education to Parental Alienation in the context of parental/family separation.

Today 16th June 2010, sees the historic launch of a global human rights campaign by the 'International Parents Alliance'[INTERPAAL], calculated to bring to an end the crises in the international family law, responsible for the destruction of millions of parent/child relationships worldwide. By presenting all past, current and future victims, with the opportunity to make a compelling personal statement, the voiceless have now been given a voice.
The 'International Boycott of Family Courts' campaign document finally provides a historic global rallying point and valuable support, to all those demanding that governments uphold their human rights obligations, to effectively protect the parent/child relationships of their citizens.
To see document go to 'INTERPAAL' @
