Erasing Family: Exploring Parental Alienation with Filmmaker, Ginger Gentile on Divorce & Beyond #233

This week on Divorce & Beyond, Host, Susan Guthrie speaks with documentary filmmaker, Ginger Gentile, a child of a high conflict divorce herself, about the truly heart-breaking cases of parental alienation and estrangement that cause a parent to lose contact with their child and even more heartbreaking, for a child to lose a loving parent.  Alienation is a form of child abuse wherein on parent manipulates a child in order to damage that child's feelings for their other parent and can cause irreperable harm to that child.  However, it remains an intractible problem for alienated parents to repair and that courts are ill-equipped to deal with.  Ginger's latest film, Erasing Family, is a look within the dynamics of alienation through the eyes of the children involved and their parents, step-parents and siblings.  Notably, there is hope there too as some of the children have re-established relationships with their alienated parent after years of separation.

Parental alienation affects more than 22,000 families in the U.S. alone.  If you or someone you know is experiencing this tragic loss, please listen to this episode.  Ginger shares some helpful insights and tips for managing the unmanageable!
