Turning Points for Families as a Highly Effective Intervention to Treat Parental Alienation

2021 Virtual International Conference Flyer

Family Access – Fighting for Children’s Rights logo

Steel Partners Foundation logo

Turning Points for Families (TPFF) is one example of a highly effective intervention to treat severe and moderate cases of alienation.

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, March 2, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Family Access – Fighting for Children’s Rights and the Steel Partners Foundation today announced that Linda Gottlieb, LMFT, LCSW-R, will be speaking at the 2021 virtual parental alienation conference, “Helping Courts Understand the Phenomenon of Alienation.” The conference will take place on May 14-16, 2021.
The Experts have repeatedly opined, “Traditional reunification therapy models are contraindicated for severe cases of alienation and many moderate cases as well.” Moving to the courtroom setting—to obtain an order for an effective therapy—lawyers must argue, “Your Honor, the traditional form of reunification therapy being considered or recommended for this case is not only ineffective; but the therapy is contraindicated— meaning forbidden.” The inescapable question then becomes, “Okay, Counselor or Expert, what form of therapy do you recommend for the Court to consider?”

This presentation is designed to answer the Court’s inescapable question. It is hoped that attorneys and expert witnesses participating in this conference will acquire a working understanding of the necessary elements in a successful treatment model for severe alienation to present to the Court; that alienated parents will be able to suggest to their reunification therapist an effective intervention; that therapists will be able to expand their repertoire of interventions.

Linda Gottlieb, LMFT, LCSW-R, has had 40+ years of education and experience providing clinical treatment services to families of all compositions, orientations, and developmental stages. She has treated the wide spectrum of problems, issues, and dysfunctional family interactional patterns that are challenging for families. She has expertise in emergency services that have included intensive, home-based, crisis-intervention to prevent the psychiatric hospitalization of a child. Since 2003, Linda has focused her clinical practice on families undergoing parental separation/divorce to help the parents develop a civil and respectful co-parenting relationship. This focus includes the highly specialized area of assessing for and treating parental alienation.

Ms. Gottlieb also provides consultation services on Parental Alienation—to rule it in or to rule it out. And she has also served as an expert witness on such cases. She has been qualified in 20 states and 30 jurisdictions. She has been qualified in family therapy, family dynamics, alienation, estrangement, child abuse, and domestic violence.

Turning Points for Families (TPFF) is one example of a highly effective intervention to treat severe and moderate cases of alienation. TPFF was inspired by the principles of Family Systems Therapy—founded by the world-renowned child psychiatrist, Salvador Minuchin, and his colleagues. TPFF is an evidence-based intervention model— having incorporated the accumulated knowledge from 70 years of research and peer-reviewed clinical literature written by the child psychiatrists and other outstanding clinicians who had founded the family therapy movement in the 1950s and by subsequent generations of family therapists.

First and foremost, a case must be made to the Court that it is settled science that alienation is a profound form of psychological child abuse. The court order must include a stipulation for child protection—meaning a protective space for the child away from the alienating parent until and unless the alienating parent relinquishes the offending behaviors. This is the reason that TPFF and the other successful reunification programs require a court-ordered stipulation for a no-contact period in any form between the child and alienating parent and with any co-alienators. Only when the Court frees the child from the abusive “loyalty conflict”—as defined by the American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children (APSAC)—will the child be able to reconnect with her or his powerful instinct for the alienated parent and be able to invest in the alienated parent without fears of reprisals from the alienating parent.

This presentation will describe how the child’s instinct for a parent—a principal ingredient in TPFF’s recipe for successful reunification—is capitalized upon in the icebreaker, “memorabilia intervention.” Because of our protracted dependency period, the instinct for a parent is part of the survival instinct. TPFF recognizes the child’s instinct for a parent as a “co-therapist” and thereby anoints the alienated parent to be the child’s true healer. The TPFF intervention capitalizes on another philosophical treatment underpinning family systems therapy—that of the unmatched efficaciousness of experience over words to produce change.

Platinum-Selling CLASSICAL KIDS Releases First New Album in 20 Years – "Gershwin’s Magic Key"

Gershwin’s Magic Key

The musical adventure features the Chicago Youth Orchestras introducing Gershwin’s extraordinary life and masterpieces with music played by kids, for Kids!

CHICAGO, IL, USA, February 24, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — In work Billboard lauds as “one of the most completely wondrous examples of children’s entertainment… ever,” multi-award winning and Platinum selling non-profit Classical Kids LIVE! present their newest studio recording, "Gershwin’s Magic Key" — available now!

It’s ‘extra, extra! Read all about it!’ as audiences step into the streets of 1920s New York as a newspaper boy has a chance encounter with the famous composer, George Gershwin.

From there, the musical masterpieces of one of America’s greatest composers are magically woven into a 50-minute story as the two actors explore the sights and sounds of the city — sharing anecdotes and observations based on true incidents from the composer’s extraordinary life along the way.

To be filed under history, drama, music, and fun, "Gershwin’s Magic Key" is the first-ever educationally entertaining musical story that introduces children to his life’s work, and is endorsed by the Gershwin Family Interests and supported by the National Endowment for the Arts. The robust production features the Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestras, and premiered with the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

Most famous for "Beethoven Lives Upstairs", the Toronto-created, Chicago-based non-profit Classical Kids Music Education is internationally acclaimed by parents and educators alike for their unique series introducing young listeners to Classical music through inventive storytelling.

With a dedicated mission to enrich the lives of children through an exciting and educational point of entry to the genre, the group ensures their shows are available to schools wherever they play — including up to 30 orchestras across North America, and International trips on alternating years; as of now, they’re slated to visit Malaysia and Hong Kong in 2022.

The organization also hosts workshops in the Chicago area for schools — which, as it happens, is how they managed to complete the recording of "Gershwin’s Magic Key" prior to COVID-19 restrictions pressing pause on their tour schedule.

Entertainment Weekly calls Classical Kids LIVE! “art made accessible; nobody does it better than Classical Kids!” and nowhere does this resonate more than "Gershwin’s Magic Key" and other Classical Kids LIVE! releases’ available through local public libraries for digital lending in addition to traditional sales. Incidentally, sales of "Gershwin’s Magic Key" will assist in keeping the philanthropic organization stable through the remainder of pandemic-related touring restrictions.

First formed in 1999, the Classical Kids Series is a Platinum-selling and award-winning series proven effective at creating awareness and appreciation for Classical music among new generations.

The Classical Kids Series has won an unprecedented six JUNO Awards for Best Children’s Recording, a Billboard International Achievement Award, Parent’s Choice Awards, iParenting Media Awards, American Library Association Notable Children’s Recording Award, National Parenting Publications Award, Dove Foundation Family Approved Seal, Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Awards, and more.

Additional productions include "Beethoven Lives Upstairs", "Mozart’s Magnificent Voyage", "Tchaikovsky Discovers America", "Vivaldi’s Ring of Mystery", "Hallelujah Handel", and "Christmas on Main Street".

"Gershwin’s Magic Key" is available now! Watch the making of “Gershwin’s Magic Key.”

Parental Alienation and Family Courts: How to Help the Judge Give You the Relief that You Desperately Need

2021 Virtual International Conference Flyer

Family Access – Fighting for Children’s Rights logo

Steel Partners Foundation logo

The debate is over: There is no doubt that Parental Alienation exists.

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, February 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Family Access – Fighting for Children’s Rights and the Steel Partners Foundation are excited to have Attorney Ashish Joshi as Co-Director for the 2021 virtual parental alienation conference, “Helping Courts Understand the Phenomenon of Alienation.” The conference will take place on May 14-16, 2021.

The debate is over: There is no doubt that Parental Alienation exists. While the detractors continue to create a smokescreen of “controversy” about Parental Alienation (PA), an overwhelming number of family courts around the country and internationally have accepted the notion of parental alienation, condemned it, and have acknowledged it as a significant factor in their decisions modifying custody and providing other appropriate intervention. Regardless of how one labels the phenomenon —call it parental alienation, brainwashing, programming, or pathological parenting—American family courts have concluded that parental alienation exists and needs to be addressed. As one trial judge quipped: Anybody old enough to drink coffee knows that embittered parties can and do manipulate their children.

Attorney Ashish Joshi serves as the lead counsel in high-stakes, complex disputes and litigation matters. Mr. Joshi has counseled and/or represented clients in state and federal courts across the United States and internationally, including in India, United Kingdom, Canada, Luxembourg, Hong Kong, British Virgin Islands, and China. Mr. Joshi has been admitted to the Bar of the Supreme Court of the United States, State Bars of New York, Michigan, District of Columbia, and Gujarat, India.

“As a lawyer who represents targeted parents and grandparents in family courts around the country, I am excited about this conference,” said Mr. Joshi. “I look forward to presenting with other world-renowned experts and helping people find solutions to the problems posed by parental alienation.”

Mr. Joshi’s focus lies at the intersection of forensic sciences, human rights, and complex disputes in situations involving severe parental alienation and psychological maltreatment of children, false allegations of child abuse, recovery of abducted children, and/or hidden assets in foreign jurisdictions and multi-jurisdictional disputes. He has served as lead counsel in some of the most significant matters in these specialized areas of law.

Registration information and conference details are available at www.familyaccessfightingforchildrensrights.org/helping-courts-understand-the-phenomenon-of-alienation-nc-conference.html.

About Family Access – Fighting for Children’s Rights

Our primary concern is the children and grandchildren and then the complete family. Sadly, the children and grandchildren who are alienated from family are being treated as pawns and property. They are neither. They are human beings, and they should not be regarded as such by their parents or any other family member. We contend that it should be illegal to use children as pawns or instruments of spiteful behavior to prevent them from interacting with ALL other family members. Our purpose and goal are to ensure the preservation of extended, traditional family relationships. In the process of this hell on earth called alienation, we need all the knowledge, support, and resources we can get to help our children and grandchildren and then ourselves. Professionals who deal with alienation in helping families will glean much from this website as well. To contact us, please email familyaccessinnc@aol.com.

Jill Linkoff Coaching to be Featured on Close Up Radio

PIKESVILLE, MARYLAND, UNITED STATES, February 19, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — While medication may help with focus and impulsivity, those with ADHD still struggle with executive function challenges like emotional dysregulation, organizational skills and time management.

Left untreated, ADHD can reduce a person’s life by 15 years. The difference between success and failure lies in how individuals choose to respond.

ADHD coaches are extensively educated, trained and experienced in working with the specific needs and objectives of individuals with ADHD and executive function challenges. This coaching helps individuals with ADHD develop the confidence, structures, process, motivation and practical approaches to meet the challenges of daily life and reach their potential.

Jill Linkoff Coaching is dedicated to working with adults, college students and parents with ADHD and executive function challenges, teacheing tools and strategies to create measurable goals.

“I give people hope,” says Linkoff. “Let's start with what's possible. Let's take the things that did work and let's build on that. It's about trust.”

Linkoff has personal experience with ADHD. She and her two children have been diagnosed with ADHD. She lost her brother to his struggles with his undiagnosed illness.

“When I was diagnosed, it was very painful for me,” says Linkoff. “You think about the shame you experienced during those years you didn't know you had ADHD. That’s why I do what I do. I truly believe if my brother had had me in his life, he would still be alive because of the training and understanding of how this affects us.”

Whether diagnosed 30 years ago or last week, Linkoff ensures her clients are made aware of and understand the coexisting conditions of ADHD.

“Pills don't build skills,” says Linkoff. “Some believe medication solves everything, but that's not how it works. That’s why I work with education first. Everybody comes to this differently. There are still many people who believe ADHD doesn't exist. The more you understand, the easier it’s going to be to advocate for yourself.”

Linkoff is co-running a weekly women’s support group through Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD), the nation's leading nonprofit organization serving individuals affected by ADHD.

“Many of these women are at their breaking point trying to balance work and home life,” says Linkoff. “After my own painful experience of being undiagnosed with ADHD and anxiety, juggling a career and co-parenting three children, today my passion is focusing on working moms struggling with ADHD and executive function challenges.”

Close Up Radio will feature Jill Linkoff in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on February 23rd at 1pm EST.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.

Leading Mental Health Counsellor Sanjukta Khaund Talks About Helping People With Mental Health Issues

INDIA, February 12, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Mental Health has become a growing concern in the modern world. It has been reported by IHME's Global Burden of Disease that 13% of the global population currently suffer from some form of mental health issues.

The United States has been ranked as the number one country with the most reported mental health cases, followed by Colombia, the Netherlands and Ukraine. According to mental health experts, more young people than ever before are suffering from mental health problems with many believing that the increase is partly down to social media.

We decided to talk to Sanjukta Khaund who is a Mental Health Coach & Counsellor. Sanjukta Khaund specialises in Personal Growth, Professional Development, Parenting, Life Transition, Anxiety Management & Suicide Risk Assessment & Management.

Sanjukta Khaund who has become a leading mental health expert in India talks about the issues surrounding mental health and how she helps people. This is what she had to say.

1. You are a Mental Health Coach/Counsellor, why did you decide to get into that line of work?

I have a helping heart & I find it deeply gratifying that I am able to help people in their personal growth & discovery; cope & overcome their struggles; unleash their unlimited potential & create a more fulfilling, balanced & meaningful life, The fact that coaching & counselling enables me to work in alignment with my core values and that I can help people to thrive motivates me on a daily basis.

2. What is the most challenging part of your job?

I find my job extremely fulfilling as it provides me with an opportunity to help people overcome their mental & emotional struggles & thrive in their lives. But, if, I had to think of one challenge, it would be balancing between empathy & objectivity.

3. You offer a range of services, but one service I would like to talk about is Anxiety, how do you help people who suffer from Anxiety?

I am glad you asked this question since this is something very close to my heart. Anxiety feels overwhelming & crippling but it is possible to manage it with a little work & lead a normal life. Though our anxious thoughts feel very real, the fact is that just because we worry about something, doesn’t mean that it will come true. I can help people understand & identify their anxiety triggers & symptoms. I can also help them to adopt coping strategies to challenge & manage their anxiety.

4. With the COVID19 pandemic, have you seen an increase in the number of people who are suffering from Anxiety?

Yes, this pandemic has definitely led to an increase in people who are suffering from anxiety.

5. Some people who suffer from Anxiety have panic attacks which can be scary. Can you provide some tricks for stopping or lessening a panic attack when you feel one coming on?

Panic attacks are brief periods of overwhelming fear or anxiety Panic attacks may feel scary, but they don’t actually cause physical harm. One of the most effective way to cope during a panic attack would be to slowly breathe in & out while repeating a calming statement like “I am all right’ “It’s all good”. etc.

Another coping strategy would be 5-4-3-2-1. In this you will purposefully take in the details of your immediate environment using each of your senses. Try & take notice of the minutest details that you would usually tune out, such as distant sounds, or the feel of an ordinary object. Name 5 things that you can see, 4 things that you can feel, 3 things that you can hear, 2 things that you can smell & 1 thing that you can taste. This would help you in grounding you & bring your focus to the here & the now & away from thoughts, worries & anxieties.

6. How can anxiety affect a person’s way of life?

Anxiety is a feeling of fear, dread or uneasiness. If you’re afraid of something bad happening, you might worry. Yes, all of us worry & some amount of anxiety is normal. For example, most of us will become anxious about impending deadlines, job interviews, exams, public speaking etc

But, here I am talking about overwhelming anxiety: when the anxious feeling never leaves us, when we cannot seem to stop our anxious thoughts and when these thoughts start to make us feel extremely sad, or even sick. All-consuming anxiety can be debilitating & may make it difficult for a person to even manage basic daily routines.

7. Do you feel social media platforms have a duty to look after the mental wellbeing of their users?

Social media is adversely affecting teenagers & young adults particularly, by making them feel inadequate about their lives and appearances in comparison to the glamourized, forever happy, unrealistic, pictures & stories online. There is also a lot of negativity, bullying & trolling online. This in turn has led to feelings of loneliness, anger, low self-esteem, anxiety, insomnia, depression.

Considering, there seems to be no way we can get people off social media, these media platforms do have a duty to look after the mental wellbeing of users by taking steps to stop cyber bullying & making these online platforms a safe space. They should also promote real, positive stories and should champion the importance of mental wellbeing & actively work towards destigmatizing mental illnesses.

8. In your experience, what specifically has contributed to people suffering from anxiety?

Fear, unemployment, isolation & grief during Covid 19 have either triggered mental health conditions or aggravated existing ones, People have been living with a perennial sense of unpredictability. This uncertainty has magnified the psychological impact of other stressors which has contributed to more people suffering from anxiety

9. 92% of the world population have some job interview anxiety, why do you think that is?

Anxiety stems from the fear of the unknown. A job interview requires you to foray into the unknown & portray the best version of yourself in front of interviewers who are practically strangers. You may also be faced with the fear of rejection & being judged. It is absolutely normal to feel anxious before a job interview & that anxiety can be easily managed with just a little bit of work.

10. Another important topic I would like to talk about is how many lives are lost to mental health issues. Each year more than 800 000 commit suicide, why do you think that figure is so high?

Research has shown that people who commit suicide are ambivalent about their decision to commit suicide. They do not want to end their lives, they only want to end their suffering & in that moment of great anguish, suicide seems to be the only solution to their perceived ‘insoluble’ problem.

The increase in the number of suicides is an indication that there needs to be an increase in the accessibility of quality mental health care, quality suicide helplines & compulsory training on suicide prevention to all mental health professionals.

There should also be more awareness on recognizing & helping someone with suicidal tendencies amongst the general population. Help & most importantly hope in any form can prevent suicide.

11. Men are ten times more likely to commit suicide than women, why is that?

Because of social conditioning & gender role definition, it is considered ‘unmanly’ to be vulnerable & express emotions & this prevents men from seeking help. There also tends to be more substance use and alcohol use among males. Thus increasing the number of male suicides.

12. If someone has reached a point where they think ending their life is the only solution, what would you say to them?

As stated earlier, people think of committing suicide as they think that there is no other way out of their perceived ‘insoluble’ problem. I will listen without bias or judgment to a person who is suicidal & try to understand the reason they want to commit suicide. I will provide hope to them & persist that suicide is not a good solution & that better alternatives can be found. I will let them know that I care & assure them of my unconditional support. I will persuade & encourage them to get help & continue with it.

Anna Svetchnikov of Longwood Care to be Featured on Close Up Radio

SWAMPSCOTT, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES, February 10, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Times of crisis can have long term effects on a child’s mental and emotional wellbeing. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, children most especially absorb the stress. The daily uncertainty, the disruption to their education and social lives, and in some cases food insecurity, are sure to take a toll.

As mother of three boys, as well as a licensed marriage and family therapist, Anna Svetchnikov has extensive experience working with children and their parents.

Anna is the author of AWESOME TEAM vs CoronaVera, a therapeutic guide for younger children to explain COVID-19 and also to provide a therapeutic tool to overcome anxiety.

“AWESOME TEAM is about kids fighting coronavirus,” says Anna. They always work together as a team, and they always help and support each other. The book is meant to teach every child about empathy: that even though it's very stressful, we're all going through the same thing.”

AWESOME TEAM vs CoronaVera is one of a remarkable 27 books Anna has published since April, with another 20 scheduled for release. Anna released these therapeutic books for parents to support children and teach them the foundation of emotional regulation and coping skills. The books are all self-published and have been translated into Spanish, Italian, French, German, Russian and Japanese.

“I was inspired and motivated to write the books because I can see that parents are trying very hard right now,” says Anna. “The books are survival manuals with storytelling. We use the stories to create a new narrative for families. I’ve worked with a lot of kids who shared their anxiety around COVID-19 and the unpredictability of what's going on. I decided to make something fun. My own kids help me with storytelling and coming up with different ideas.”

Anna is executive director of Longwood Care, a non-profit organization dedicated to mental health services for adults and families through outpatient care and telehealth. She is also the founder of the Positive Parenting Initiative, helping parents better understand their children's behavior and create positive changes that will empower their children.

“I started positive parenting because I'm a parent myself,” says Anna. “You need a license to become a therapist. You need to like to drive a car, but you don't get the license to be parents. There is a lot of information out there, but it’s not useful without support. It’s important to give some kind of guidance and structure for parents.”

Close Up Radio will feature Anna Svetchnikov in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on February 12th at 1pm EST
