How does the Japanese animated film, Spirited Away, relate to parental alienation? For a start, the brilliant Studio Ghibli aren’t afraid to delve into the darker, more fearful aspects of childhood, much like the brothers Grimm in an earlier era. The film captures what it’s like to be a child who finds herself transported into a strange, bewildering place. Chihiro’s parents are turned into pigs for stealing food from spirits, and she has to find a way to survive a terrifying adult world by regaining her basic human rights, through toil and struggle, in order to find her freedom (and rescue her parents too). Also, the experience of alienation is like having our children spirited away from us by adults who put their own needs above that of the children. It is called a living bereavement. The sense of loss is huge, and we grieve. Our children are alive but taken to a place where we struggle to reach them, communicate, and keep our relationship with them alive. I get quite a lot of messages of despair, and my heart goes out to each and every target parent who is suffering through the experience of alienation. I’ve been there myself. But I am here to say you can survive it. I did, and I am now doing all I can to help others do the same.

I have joined with many parents affected with the surreal , yet accepted issue of child abuse via Pathogenic Parenting / Domestic abuse. As a survivor of Domestic Abuse, denial abounded that 3 sons were not affected. In my desire to be family to those who have found me lacking . As a survivor of psychiatric abuse, therapist who abused also and toxic prescribed medications took me to hell on earth with few moments of heaven. I will share my life, my experiences and my studies and research.. I will talk to small circles and I will council ; as targeted parents , grandparents , aunts , uncles etc. , are denied contact with a child for reasons that serve the abuser ...further abusing the child. I grasp the trauma and I have looked at the lost connection to a higher power.. I grasp when one is accustomed to privilege, equality can feel like discrimination.. Shame and affluence silences a lot of facts , truths that have been labeled "negative". It is about liberation of the soul from projections of a alienator , and abuser ..
