Product Description

Review

“A godsend to the many divorcées who are bashed by their ex-spouses.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Divorce Poison is a must read for every parent involved in a hostile divorce.” (Dr. John W. Santrock, professor of psychology, University of Texas at Dallas)

“With the wisdom and insight of years of professional experience, Dr. Richard A. Warshak shows parents how to avoid the painful repercussions that result when a child becomes the pawn of parental conflicts. If you’re divorced and you love your child, read this book!” (Constance R. Ahrons, Ph.D., senior scholar Council on Contemporary Families, and author of The Good Divorce)

“An absolute must-read for any parent going through a divorce. Warshak lays bare the evils of parental alienation and gives readers the knowledge they need to defend themselves—and their children—against it.” (Armin Brott, author of The Expentant Father and The Single Father)

“A breakthrough book. . . . Original, well-written, balanced, and filled with insights, it is perfect for any parent who has been the victim of bad-mouthing.” (Warren Farrell, Ph.D., author of Father and Child Reunion and Why Men Are the Way They Are)

“Divorce Poison is destined to become a classic. Dr. Warshak’s sympathy for mothers, fathers, and relatives struggling to maintain their children’s affection is outweighed only by his compassion for the children themselves.” (Michael Gurian, author of The Wonder of Boys)

“This book is a testament to Dr. Warshak’s vast experience, erudition, and deep commitment to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of the various categories of alienated children.” (Richard A. Gardner, M. D., clinical professor of child psychiatry, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, author of The Parental Alienation Syndrome)

“Offers valuable advice, especially for those times when the going gets tough with your ex. It also helps you understand and heal your own hurts without hurting the children you love.” (Susan Jeffers, Ph.D., author of Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway and I'm Okay . . . You're a Brat!)

“Always painful, divorce can turn lethal when one parent attempts to poison the children against an ex-spouse. In this balanced, compassionate book, Richard Warshak offers vital advice to those caught in the emotional maelstrom of a bitter divorce.” (Mark Pendergrast, author of Victims of Memory)

Format: Paperback
I was sceptical when I ordered this book - how could one book claim to cover the whole subject? As the child of divorced parents and also a divorced mother I thought I had all the answers - how wrong could I be? If I had to suggest just one book to all parents (even those not even contemplating divorce) this would have to be it. I have even convinced my solicitor to recommend it to all her divorce clients. The overwhelming impression is of wisdom and good sense. Not a hint of sexism or judgmentalism. Lots of practical suggestions which are workable and also excercises which proved illuminating. Convincingly written by a professional who clearly has the best interests of PEOPLE at heart, and not a personal axe to grind. Get it, you just can't regret it.

First of all, I'd like to express my sympathy to any parent who, faced with hostile ex's (and/or their new partners) is even contemplating reading a book like this. I simply can not describe the personal feeling upon hearing your child speaking negatively about you in tonalities and inflections which clearly aren't theirs. If you are new and inexperienced to the subject of parental alienation, and your child has expressed symptoms, your natural reaction, after total and utter shock, will most probably be anger - this book will teach you how to deal with these negative emotions, and how to react positively (thereby not pushing the child away, and validating the ex's/ex's new partners poison).

This book was recommended to me by a member of FNF, and I can confirm that, at the moment, this is probably the best tool you can have against parental alienation. It will alleviate the feeling of helplessness and anger, and provide priceless tips and tools to counter the damaging effects on your child. If you are seeing the symptoms, no matter how minor and seemingly insignificant, get this book before it's too late.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Warshak is the first person I've found to give practical instructions on how to deal with alienation. He covers the subject 360° starting with all of the possibilities which ARE NOT alienation then describing the techniques used to alienate us from our children and how to combat them. Don't delay! I like many got this information much too late and lost my child; now with Dr. Warshak's help I just MIGHT get her back. God bless you on your journey to reconnect with your children.

Format: Paperback
*Divorce Poison* is a must-read for all mums and dads who are suddenly rejected or treated with contempt by their children following a separation from the other parent. In his very readable book, Dr Warshak describes how to detect and identify parental alienation. He provides practical tips on how to protect yourself and your children from the pernicious influence of a vindictive ex. He explains how to deal with children who have been unreasonably rejecting a parent -- sometimes for years. This includes children of all ages, from young children through to adolescents and grown-up children, who refuse to see, or even communicate with, their rejected parent, because their other parent has subtly or overtly embarked on a campaign of denigration. *Divorce Poison* provides helpful advice for both sides in the parents' conflict, as well as for the extended family and for other important adults in the lives of alienated children. In addition, *Divorce Poison* contains important recommendations for judges, lawyers, court-appointed psychologists, custody evaluators and therapists. I would therefore recommend this book not only for personal, but also for professional use. The most important message of *Divorce Poison* to rejected parents is never to give up. This book provides hope and vindication when your world as a parent seems to be falling apart.

I got a copy of this book after having it recommended by a number of friends from FNF, it truly is the easiest read about parental alienation.

It simply and easily explains what PA is and how to spot it early, how to combat it and how to keep your child loving you despite a hostile ex.

Simply it is a must for separated parents who have hostile ex's.

It only dealt with the American legal system, and I'm Irish. So I wasn't particularly interested in tons of American court cases, and all these sad stories of who won the custody battle, because they were better able to manipulate the judge. It didn't give me any reassurance for my current situation. On a positive note it did highlight some of the ways used to manipulate the children involved, which was good for my awareness.

Philip Larking summed it up didn't he? I can't repeat the poem here, but read "This be the verse" and you'll get it. The sad thing is that the abuse - yet it is child abuse - that is inflicted upon children by once sane parents continues unabated and is largely unrecognised. When it is recognised, it's years down the line and the Family Justice System tend to wash their hands of it as being "too difficult". Read this book and understand that the child on the front cover is being abused. It is child abuse an should be treated as such.

This book offers some strategies for coping with it, sadly the advice whilst good, is only really apposite before the abuse has set in.
