The concept of “Parental Alienation Syndrome” has been controversial, and its misuse has invariably caused some harm. In spite of this, allegations of such behaviors are ongoing as courts and other social systems continue to base decisions on earlier conceptualizations
In this introductory webinar, Dr. Michael Bütz, a forensic psychologist and expert witness in court cases in which Parental Alienation Syndrome has been alleged, begins with a review of historical precedents, noting inadequacies in current models. Dr. Bütz will then describe the diagnostic concept of Interrelated Multidimensional Diagnoses. This is a Live 1 CE Credit Hours Interactive Webinar.
He will provide an overview of how such an approach takes into account a broader array of factors than what is often considered. He will offer suggestion on professionals can adopt a more informed approach when working with children and families caught up in pathological dynamics.
For those unable to attend, CE credits (though not live) will be available by viewing the recording and taking the post-test and evaluation.
For psychologists outside of New York State, CE hours are designated as home study. For all other professionals, Live CE certificates will be provided.
