After the workshop, participants will be able to
• List two reasons why traditional forms of reunification therapy are

    contraindicated in severe cases of alienation.
• Identify stipulations, with their rationale, required in the court order

       for acceptance of a family into TPFF.
• Summarize treatment protocol in the 4-day, TPFF intervention

           • Provide a practical intervention to bring parent and child together after             rejection.

               • Rehearse the current research supporting TPFF
• Motivate the next 2nd and 3rd generation of therapists to                                       undertake the TPFF intervention with each bringing his or                              her 
own individuality and experience to the intervention.
• Define parental alienation as a severe form of child
