Due to my military background, I was quick to get “SA” (situational awareness) once I learned that my estranged wife’s rabid campaign to have our kids reject me had a name: parental alienation. As it turns out, there is a cadre of world-class experts in the field, and they pretty much all know one another.
One of these experts is Dr. Amy Baker, Ph.D. Amy came to Ontario, Canada in 2009 to testify as an expert at my divorce trial. She was accepted by the court as an expert in child-parent relationships and parental alienation. Amy’s testimony was exceptionally strong, in that her evidence explained how parental alienation was child abuse. She used language and terms that were virtually identical to Ontario’s child protection law.
This is probably why the judge had to scuttle the trial. She threatened me from chambers with not seeing my two badly alienated sons for another six months if I didn’t drop the trial. I hadn’t seen them for nearly 14 months by that point, also because of judicial malfeasance.
Amy is very intelligent, compassionate, and a killer-good expert witness. She’s someone that every target (victim) parent of alienation, every lawyer dealing with alienation cases, and adults who suspect they may have been alienated as kids should know about.

It’s people like Amy that help alienated parents regain faith in humanity and have hope for an otherwise bleak future.
