Getting SplitReady Episode 19.3: Weaponizing the Kids – The Dangers of Parental Alienation

As the saying goes, “you can divorce your spouse, but you can’t divorce your kids,” which means that divorcing couples with children will need to interact with their ex-spouse well beyond the signing of the divorce decree. For some, a nurturing co-parenting relationship develops. For others, an already dysfunctional relationship continues, and children often become weapons with which to inflict harm. It goes without saying that while this is bad for the ex-spouses, it’s much worse for the children involved.

Join us for an engaging discussion with Lynda H. LeBlanc of LeBlanc & Mulholland, LLC about parental alienation and how it impacts everyone involved.

Also joining the conversation are Laura Bare from Embark Collaborations, Angeline Schuller from New Vista Behavioral Health, and Olga Stambler from Hurst, Robin & Kay, LLC.
