At a wonderful suggestion and through my Internet fragility, I tell ya, I’m such an idiot, I will now start adding topics to my posts.
Perhaps one day a minion person can go through the past posts of note and Topic them if they’re valuable, but at least going forward, I’ll give all my posts to this Facebook Group at least one topic. I may revisit some issues over time just for ease of having the Topic reference content.
Here are the topic categories I will be starting with. Less categories is good, but enough categories is helpful.
Four broad categories: Parents; Mental Health Professionals (MHP); Legal Professionals; Resources.
I am going to have a fifth Topic category for Dorcy’s work, labeled, CCPI (Conscious Co-Parenting Institute). This will entail my posts about the High Road protocol, the Custody Resolution Method, the Higher Purpose Parenting curriculum, and the network of family coaching support.
Within each of these broad categories will be a next-level set of categories:
MHP: Attachment Pathology
MHP: Complex Trauma Pathology
MHP: Family Systems Therapy
MHP: Personality Disorders
Legal: Psychology Package
Legal: Considerations (from Psychology)
CCPI: High Road
CCPI: Family Coaching
I am going to add one more Topic category regarding the Petition to the APA.
Petition to the APA
I anticipate that this is going to become an emerging issue at some point. Major media has not yet activated. There is a whole ‘nother line of force on its way, Dateline – 60 Minutes type of expose on corruption in forensic psychology and the cover-up from the APA.
Dum-dee-dum, no hurry on that. It’ll arrive when it gets here. Media absolutely loves institutional corruption and cover up stories. Once they get on to this story, the string they pull on (custody evaluations) will unravel some pretty distasteful professional incompetence… and its cover up by the APA?
That’s the decision currently before the APA in the Petition to the APA. It’s their Catholic church sex abuse scandal moment. What does the APA choose to do?
Does the APA come clean on professional standards of practice, support Standard 2.01a of the their own ethics code, and come to the support of parents seeking professional competence?
Or does the APA remain silent, abandon their own ethics code, abandon parents to the ignorance and incompetence of forensic psychology, and abandon tens and hundreds of thousands of children to child abuse and destroyed childhoods?
Decision time, APA. That which is hidden will be revealed. That’s the purpose and function of AB-PA. It is going to do its job. AB-PA will reveal that which is hidden. Watch.
Main stream media has yet to arrive. They will. And when they arrive I will have wonderful “sound-bite” worthy statements for them about corruption in forensic psychology and the abuse of children – and about the abuse of targeted parents by forensic psychology.
This is not new. I have blogs going back years discussing the severely problematic issues with child custody evaluations. They know, forensic psychology knows what it’s doing (gouging parents for invalid assessments)… and what they’re not doing (not solving anything).
But what they will soon be waking to is the different world in which their abuse of parents, and their collusion with child abuse, will no longer be tolerated, and will be exposed. Uh-oh for them.
Forensic psychology has emotionally abused targeted parents and has colluded with the psychological abuse of children. Shame is coming.
Forensic psychology, the sooner you see the truth and begin adopting basic professional standards of practice, the less will be your shame. I share in that shame. As clinical psychologists we also abandoned these families. But now clinical psychology is here. We will do the right thing – now. Today.
Forensic psychology, you have a choice. APA, you also have a choice.
Truth has a way of… becoming known. And truth has force.
So I’m adding a special Topic for my Facebook posts on the Petition to the APA, because I suspect this is going to become an important topic moving forward, especially once the major media arrive.
