Your ex-spouse is bad mouthing you to your children, constantly portraying you in a negative light, perhaps even trying to turn them against you. If you handle the situation ineffectively, your relationship with your children could suffer. You could lose their respect, lose their affections-even, in extreme cases, lose all contact with them. The conventional advice is to do nothing, that fighting fire with fire will only result in greater injury to the children. But after years of consulting parents who heeded such advice with no success, Dr. Richard Warshak is convinced that this approach is wrong. It doesn't work, and parents are left feeling helpless and hopeless. DIVORCE POISON instead offers a blueprint for effective response. In it, you will learn how to distinguish different types of criticism, how and why parents manipulate their children, how to detect these maneuvers, and how these practices damage children. Most importantly, you'll discover powerful strategies to preserve and rebuild loving relationships with your children.

DIVORCE POISON is a time-tested work that gives parents powerful strategies to preserve and rebuild loving relationships with their children-and provides practical advice from legal and mental-health professionals to help their clients and safeguard the welfare of children. Whether they are perpetrators of divorce poison, victims of it, or both, parents who heed Dr. Warshak's advice will enable their children to maintain love and respect for their parents-even if their parents no longer love and respect each other.

    Quality : Poor Value : Poor

    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 bio 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 recommend 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.
