16-18 September 2020
The third conference of the European Association of Parental Alienation Practitioners (EAPAP) was held, online, between 16-18 September 2020. This year, the three-day practitioner event was hosted by the Child and Youth Protection Centre of Zagreb (Poliklinika za zaštitu djece i mladih Grada Zagreba) and featured presenters from 13 European countries, as well as a number of guest speakers from the United States and Canada.
The conference was attended by more than 400 mental health and legal professionals from across Europe, and addressed by over 30 specialists in the field, marked a transition away from the focus on diagnostic approaches to the problem of children’s rejection of a parent, and towards a recognition that the dynamic referred to as parental alienation is, at its core, induced psychological splitting in the child and a relationship trauma that may be understood within the context of accepted psychological and psychoanalytic theories, and treated using existing therapies that are adapted for this particular cohort of children.
