FAMILY DISAPPEARED PODCAST: How to Write an Amends Letter With Parental Alienation Specialist Josh Coleman Part 1 – Episode 24

family disappeared episode 24

Embarking on a journey of reconciliation can be as daunting as it is necessary, especially when the estrangement lies within the delicate fibers of family. I, Lawrence Joss, alongside the insightful Dr. Josh Coleman, delve into the often-unspoken paths of familial healing, and the profound act of writing amends letters.

Navigating the complexities of estrangement and alienation, Dr. Coleman and I dissect the intricate dynamics that lead to family disconnections. We lay bare the soulful distinction between alienation—where one parent’s influence skews a child’s view of the other parent—versus estrangement, which can stem from various, sometimes unavoidable, life circumstances. The conversation is an honest reflection on the hampering defensiveness that parents must overcome, and the courageous steps towards empathetic communication that may pave the way to rekindling lost relationships.

The closing moments of our dialogue are a heartening embrace of the struggles and victories in the throes of parental estrangement. We share tales of resilience, the solace found in acceptance, and the self-care necessary when facing the reality of a child’s unforgiveness. Our podcast provides a reservoir of support and hope through concrete resources and shared experiences. For anyone navigating these turbulent waters, our stories and advice serve as a lighthouse guiding you back to the shores of familial connection.
