‘Parental alienation’ is not a term Northumberland County Council would use therefore we do not hold any specific policies or training for this
As you are not clear about who onward referrals would be made to then it is not possible to answer this.
Safeguarding polices can be found on the LSCB website http://www.northumberland.gov.uk/Children/Safeguarding/Safeguarding-children-information-for-professional.aspx
Northumberland County Council comply with the LSCB policies and procedures in relation to abuse and neglect including the thresholds document and assessment of need. These are based on statute and Working Together to safeguard children 2015.
Policies and procedures are available on the LSCB website relating to referrals.
There is multi agency training provided through the LSCB includes training on emotional abuse and the effects and we would encourage all frontline workers to attend this as required.
Some examples of possible onward referrals would include Children’s Social Services, Police, CAMHS, and/or the child’s GP Onward referrals would be based upon the assessed level of need of the child(ren). Policies and procedures are available on the LSCB website relating to referrals.
In a Family Law system designed for combative parents there is no real allowance for the views of children and any understanding of how Family Law ultimately impacts on children most of all.
We speak for the children in Family Law so that, finally, the children have a voice.
