parental alienationFaculty Member: Dr. Benjamin Garber, licensed psychologist, former Guardian ad litem, and parenting coordinator

Facilitator: Diana Shepherd, CDFA®, Editorial Director and Co-Founder of Divorce Magazine

When the other parent intentionally turns the children against you, it becomes difficult – if not impossible – to have a successful co-parenting relationship. Knowing what symptoms and behaviors to watch out for in your children will help you determine whether or not parental alienation is occurring, and which steps to take to mitigate the effects. More


Benjamin Garber, Ph.D. works with the courts in several distinct roles to educate, evaluate, and intervene in the best interests of children. Dr. Garber has served as an expert witness in a number of states, and his experience includes international Hague Convention matters, Daubert arguments against “parental alienation syndrome,” the critique and review of Guardian ad litem, and as a custody evaluator.
