Thinking of Jay …


Jay’s mum was considered unable to put Jay’s needs before her own.  She was abusing alcohol, exposing Jay to a succession of violent intimate partner relationships, isolating him from a key attachment figure.  Her lack of insight into her own behaviours and functioning, her inability to mentalise Jay’s experience, to step inside his shoes, meant that she would continue to struggle to provide a secure and stable home for him. 

I am frightened, scared – I don’t know what to do. I don’t like this new man – he hurts mummy; she cries. Sometimes mummy doesn’t wake up when I shake her … He shouts at me when I cry.

When someone is trying to destroy your website/business/reputation!!

If someone is trying to destroy your website business reputation, there are several steps you can take to protect your online presence and minimize the damage. Here are some suggestions:

  1. Monitor your online presence: Regularly monitor your website and social media accounts for any negative reviews, comments, or feedback. Use online reputation management tools to stay up-to-date with what people are saying about your business online.
  2. Respond promptly and professionally: If you do encounter negative comments or reviews, respond promptly and professionally. Be respectful and acknowledge the person’s concerns. Offer to address any issues and work towards a resolution.
  3. Take legal action: If the person is making false statements about your business that are damaging your reputation, you may want to consider taking legal action. Consult with a lawyer who specializes in online defamation and take appropriate legal steps to protect your business.
  4. Build positive reviews and content: One of the best ways to combat negative reviews is to build up positive content and reviews about your business. Encourage satisfied customers to leave positive reviews and testimonials on your website and social media accounts.
  5. Stay active on social media: Use social media to engage with your customers and build relationships. This can help you to build a loyal following and create positive buzz about your business.

Remember that protecting your online reputation is an ongoing process. By staying vigilant, responding appropriately to negative feedback, and focusing on building positive relationships with your customers, you can help to protect your business from online attacks and maintain a positive online presence.

Yes I have been there before, and I suspect it is the same person using their flying monkeys to do their dirty work!

It appears the more successful I become the harder they try!

Dont get distracted by a psychopath

  1. Stay aware: If you suspect someone may be attempting to manipulate or distract you, try to stay aware of their behavior and the situation at hand. Pay attention to any patterns or inconsistencies in their actions or words.
  2. Stay focused on your goals: Keep your focus on your goals and priorities, and don’t let anyone else’s behavior distract you from achieving them. Remember what’s important to you and stay motivated to pursue your objectives.
  3. Set boundaries: It’s important to set clear boundaries in any relationship, whether personal or professional. If someone is attempting to distract or manipulate you, be clear about what behaviors are unacceptable and communicate those boundaries firmly.
  4. Seek support: If you’re feeling overwhelmed or unsure about how to handle a difficult situation, seek support from trusted friends, family, or professionals. Talking to others can help you gain perspective and feel more confident in your ability to handle challenging situations.

Remember that everyone deserves respect and consideration, but it’s also important to protect your own well-being and focus on your goals. If you’re concerned about someone’s behavior, don’t hesitate to seek help and support from others.

Q & A – What are the different levels of PA?

The three levels of PAS are mild, moderate, and severe. Differential diagnosis is the process of distinguishing one disorder from another based on the presenting symptoms. The differential diagnosis for each level of PAS is as follows:

  1. Mild PAS: In mild cases, the child may show some reluctance or resistance to spending time with the targeted parent. However, the child’s behavior is not severe enough to interfere with the relationship. The following conditions may be considered in the differential diagnosis:
  • Normal developmental stages: Children may go through phases where they prefer one parent over the other, especially during the early stages of divorce or separation.
  • Anxiety or depression: Children with anxiety or depression may show some avoidance behavior, which may be misinterpreted as alienation.
  • Parent-child conflict: Children may resist spending time with a parent with whom they have had recent conflict.
  1. Moderate PAS: In moderate cases, the child’s behavior is more severe and may start to interfere with the targeted parent’s relationship with the child. The following conditions may be considered in the differential diagnosis:
  • Attachment disorder: Children with attachment disorders may show a lack of interest in forming relationships with others, including parents.
  • Personality disorders: Personality disorders in the alienating parent or child may contribute to the child’s rejection of the targeted parent.
  • Child abuse: In some cases, allegations of abuse may be made against the targeted parent as a means of justifying the child’s rejection.
  1. Severe PAS: In severe cases, the child’s rejection of the targeted parent is absolute, and the child may engage in extreme behaviors to avoid contact with the parent. The following conditions may be considered in the differential diagnosis:
  • Cult involvement: Children who have been indoctrinated into a cult may show similar behaviors to those with severe PAS, including absolute rejection of the targeted parent.
  • Parental kidnapping: In some cases, the alienating parent may abduct the child to prevent contact with the targeted parent.
  • Psychosis: In rare cases, severe mental illness such as psychosis may cause the child to reject the targeted parent.

It is essential to conduct a thorough evaluation to differentiate between these conditions and PAS, and to develop an appropriate treatment plan for each case. A trained mental health professional with experience in family therapy can assist in the differential diagnosis and treatment of PAS.


Q & A – Do alienating parents use perspecticide?

Yes, alienating parents can use perspecticide as a tool in their efforts to alienate a child from the other parent. By systematically controlling and distorting the child’s perception of the other parent and their relationship, the alienating parent can create a false reality for the child, causing them to lose their own perspective and sense of self.

Some common tactics used by alienating parents to achieve perspecticide may include:

  • Denigrating the other parent: The alienating parent may consistently denigrate the other parent in front of the child, making derogatory comments or presenting a distorted picture of the other parent’s behavior or character.
  • Isolating the child: The alienating parent may limit the child’s contact with the other parent, and may discourage or forbid the child from talking about the other parent or spending time with them.
  • Controlling information: The alienating parent may control the information that the child receives about the other parent, presenting a distorted or incomplete picture of reality.
  • Creating a false narrative: The alienating parent may create a false narrative about the other parent and their relationship, presenting the other parent as abusive, neglectful, or otherwise unworthy of the child’s affection.

Over time, these tactics can cause the child to develop a distorted and negative perception of the other parent, leading to alienation and a breakdown in the parent-child relationship.

It’s important to note that the use of perspecticide by an alienating parent can have serious and long-lasting effects on a child’s mental health and well-being, and can contribute to a range of emotional and behavioral problems. If you suspect that a child is being subjected to perspecticide or parental alienation, it’s important to seek the advice of a qualified mental health professional or family law attorney.

Q & A – Tell me more about “perspecticide”

Perspecticide is a term that was coined by Evan Stark to describe a form of psychological abuse that is often used in coercive control relationships. The term refers to the ways in which an abuser systematically controls and distorts a victim’s sense of reality, causing them to lose their own perspective and sense of self.

In a relationship characterized by perspecticide, the abuser may use a variety of tactics to control and manipulate the victim’s perceptions and beliefs. These may include:

  • Gaslighting: A form of psychological manipulation in which the abuser causes the victim to doubt their own memories, perceptions, and sanity.
  • Isolation: The abuser may isolate the victim from friends and family, and limit their access to information and outside perspectives.
  • Control of information: The abuser may control the information that the victim receives, and present a distorted or incomplete picture of reality.
  • Blame-shifting: The abuser may blame the victim for problems in the relationship or in their own life, causing the victim to question their own actions and beliefs.
  • Denial and minimization: The abuser may deny or minimize the abuse, making it difficult for the victim to recognize and address the problem.

Over time, the cumulative effect of these tactics can cause the victim to feel confused, anxious, and uncertain about their own perceptions and beliefs. This can result in a loss of self-esteem, a diminished sense of autonomy, and a greater dependence on the abuser.

It’s important to note that perspecticide is not limited to romantic relationships, and can occur in any situation where one person has a significant power imbalance over another. Perspecticide can have serious long-term effects on a victim’s mental health and well-being, and it’s important for anyone who is experiencing this type of abuse to seek help from a qualified mental health professional.
