Dr Charlie Azzopardi
Early Intervention Alienation - Melbourne
Dr Charlie Azzopardi works with families who experience parental alienation.
At the Institute of Family Therapy in Malta, Dr Azzopardi sees children who often have a diagnosis of ADHD, ADD, ODD, deliberate self-harm, or suicide contemplation in the context of parental separation.
Occasionally a child vehemently and aggressively refuses to see a previously loved parent. This is typically visible during high conflict legal separation processes or in foster care situations.
Much attention recently has focused on crisis management and reunification programs, assessment tools, and legal interventions. However research on the very early signs of Parental Alienation (PA) is non-existent.
Early detection of these signs can help identify, predict risk of parental alienation and focus treatment.
This full day workshop for Family Law professionals will allow an exploration of these issues, raise discussion promote internation collaboration and cross pollination of ideas, resources and treatments.
