5.0 out of 5 stars Essential
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...

2.0 out of 5 stars I didn't like this book
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...

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have for everyone that has a Psycho Ex-wife!, 9 Dec 2009
By 
S. E. Gannon "SJ x" (Yorkshire, England) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Divorce Poison (Paperback)
If you or your partner has a Psycho ex wife - this book is for you!

It explains all the tricks these people use to stop access to children, how they try and turn them against you, and every low down dirty thing they do to ruin your life.

It has ideas for coping with them, and how to ensure there is little impact on the children. It makes you feel normal and that this is normal behaviour from these people as they all follow the same pattern (as much as psycho ex-wives are normal).

Do yourself a favour and get this book.

1.0 out of 5 stars the AUTHOR is POISON!!!!!, 13 Jan 2014
This review is from: Divorce Poison New and Updated Edition: How to Protect Your Family from Bad-mouthing and Brainwashing (Paperback)
Would you have your daughter learn proper dating etiquette from Ted Bundy? (Reading or buying or supporting this book is the equivalent, taking advise from a INTENSE, horrific, court-mandated abuser of children and their protective parent, putting them back in the hands of their abusing parent.) If your child has swollen lymph nodes, does he have tonsillitis, or is it AIDS? According to many custody evaluators and psychologists, your child has AIDS, not just tonsillitis or a sinus infection. Psychology is NOT a SCIENCE, and is therefore not finding of fact or anything to do with due process rights of law, but nonetheless, family courts over and over rely on social scientists and 'experts (who have an incredible, wealthy cottage industry making money ofF the perpetuation of emotional, physical and even sexual abuse of children in custody battles). America has gone from father's not having adequate access to their own children after divorce (1970s), to to Sodom and Gomorrah family custody battles. Research shows sane loving parents avoid custody battles, put their children's needs first. But tons of research also shows that most couples caught up in custody battles are there because of an abusive spouse, and research also shows that these parents 'pushing' the expensive protracted fights (financially, emotionally, mentally, physcially, even vocationally costly) over children are controlling abusers (emotional, physical, sexual, a combination thereof) and that these abusers make emotionally neglectful and emotionally abusive parents in the best cases, and the MAJORITY (studies range from some 60-80 percent) are PHYSICALLY abusive of their own children, most of the perpetrators being FATHERS. Now, here is where it gets 'interesting with Warshak. I'll quote lines from HIS OWN bio at [...] The author admits multiple times in his own bio that Dr. Richard Gardner highly influenced his psychological views early on, that influence gets even stronger, that he attends workshops by Dr. Gardner and that in the end he seems to consider him (never mentions another psychologist with such strong terms) a colleague. Dr. Richard Gardner was a staunch supporter of PEDOPHILIA, and started the whole parental alienation crap because he wanted to 'defend' fathers who had sexually assaulted their own children again the true claims of the protective mother/parent. Here are some direct quotes from Garnder in his own publications. (One should also note that Gardner always self-published; even psychologist, who don't use the scientific method, wouldn't even publish his 'work' of lies, propoganda for a deviant abusive lifestyle.) Here is Gardner (Warshak's, the author of this book, MENTOR): "The child should be able to pity the father for the curse (in our society) of having pedophilic tendencies. In other times and other places, he would be considered normal."

--RICHARD A. GARDNER, TRUE AND FALSE ALLEGATIONS OF CHILD SEX ABUSE 592 (1992).

Older children may be helped to appreciate that sexual encounters between an adult and a child are not universally considered to be reprehensible acts. The child might be told about other societies in which such behavior was and is considered normal. The child might be helped to appreciate the wisdom of Shakespeare's Hamlet, who said, "Nothing's either good or bad, but thinking makes it so."

--Gardner, R.A. (1992). True and False Accusations of Child Sex Abuse . Cresskill, NJ: Creative Therapeutics.(p. 59)

--Gardner, R.A. (1992). True and False Accusations of Child Sex Abuse . Cresskill, NJ: Creative Therapeutics.(p. 537)
The child should be told that there is no such thing as a perfect parent. "The sexual exploitation has to be put on the negative list, but positives as well must be appreciated"

What the freak? Yes, this is REAL folks. Happy to find out that parental alieanation was invented by a pedophile lover? It was, and thank God quack Richard Gardner (won't call him a Dr.) is dead and in hell. And his protege is, nontheless, the author of this book of poison, all wrapped up in pretty paper for you to buy into the lies and horrid things this man is personally responsible for causing more abuse on children all over this country. Go back and read the link this author (Warshak) writes on his own and how many times he mentions the influence of Gardner, and how he mentions Gardner as the only one with such positive words and the only one he mentions as a 'colleague'.

Every year in the good ole USA, 600, 000 kids are given over by the courts to the custody of their abusive parent (often SOLE custody, which excludes the only safety, the protective parent, from their life. This is largely due to the introduction of 'psychology' as a valid method of fact finding to make reommendations to the court, and also due to the court's ignorance of many things like how abused protective parents appear in court (while the abused parent appears calm and 'nice').

The culmination of Dr. Warshak's training and psychological views (largely inculcated by a 'raping your own child is acceptable' quack, who thank God is dead (Dr. Richard Gardner) has now been the promulgation of court-mandated large scale (and VERY profittable) abuse of children in his FAMILY BRIDGES 'brainwashing internment camps' he runs at $20K per person. Yes, that's right, if the abuser can pay the psychologist enough money ($20K or more for a custody evaluation), then the psychologist, ignoring fact finding, will reommend that the abusive parent and the children (at $20,000 per person) attend the residential program, even if coercion (against the protective parent, even if it includes jail) or physical force be used against the kids, to attend it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Human rights violation in America, probably the worst violation against children going on in the past 2-3 decades and all because of an 'over-educated' incestuous pervert and his protege. Do not buy this book, do not support a man who has caused uncalculated harm to abused children and their protective parents. Spread the word and expose him for what he is: a conduit (and often direct through his program and court recommendations to overturn custody to the abusive parent) abuser of children on a HUGE scale.
