Why Children Reject Loving Parents

July 2 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Jennifer Harman - SummerFest 2019

Speaker: Jennifer Harman, CSU Associate Professor of Psychology

Program: Many children reject or refuse to have a relationship with a loving parent, and it is often hard for people to understand the cause of this rejection. Oftentimes, the parent who is rejected is blamed, as observers assume that they must be abusive or have done something wrong to make the child act that way. This talk will explore form of family violence known as parental alienation, which is when a child rejects a parent for untrue, exaggerated, or unjustifiable reasons. The cause of this rejection and the child’s behaviors run counterintuitive to what we might expect, yet are fully explicable once the true cause is exposed.
