10-Dr. Steven Miller at Family Access- Fighting for Children’s Right https://www.familyaccessfightingforchildrensrights.com/dr-steven-miller.html

In April 2012, Family Access- Fighting for Children’s Rights was founded by Elaine Cobb who is also president. Elaine herself is alienated from her granddaughter Dare who she has never seen and is now 9 years old and her adult son Bryan who she has not been a part of his family’s lives since December 26, 2010. Her granddaughter 

Dare is alienated from her whole side of her daddy’s family. This is why she is determined to try in helping make a difference in this abuse called alienation being caused to the children, grandchildren and family members. Elaine also knew one of the biggest ways to defeat alienation is to bring more awareness and education to those who know nothing or very little about alienation. The website familyaccessfightingforchildrensrights.org was designed with that in mind as well as giving information to alienated family members to help them know all they can to get through this and one day hopefully be able to see their alienated loved ones

Dr. Steven Miller has degrees in both Psychology and Medicine from Brown University and did residency training at Brown University and Harvard Medical School. For more than 30 years he was on the teaching faculty at Harvard Medical School. He is board certified in both Internal Medicine and Emergency Medicine; in addition, he has many years of experience practicing Behavioral Medicine — a specialty that focuses on the interface between medicine and psychology. That background is particularly relevant to child maltreatment, child protection, child alignment, parental alienation, pathological enmeshment, and related issues since those clinical conditions are very much related to behavior, including dysfunctional, pathological, and abusive behavior.

Virginia graduated from University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Business Administration. She became a practicing attorney in order to help her clients protect what matters most: family, assets and peace of mind.

Virginia is a fierce advocate for her clients and always prefers to settle legal issues without resorting to high conflict. She is known among her colleagues as one to try to mediate before she litigates. However, when the other party is completely uncooperative, and litigation is the only option, Virginia employs her tenacious skills to give her client the best chance of success. She did not gain the reputation of “Griffin the Lion” for nothing.

Virginia has 15 years’ experience as a school psychologist. Her skills as a psychologist enable her to help lead uncooperative parties to resolution. Further, her unique perspective as a psychologist gives Virginia a strategic advantage that others may lack.

Virginia is a member of the Los Angeles County Bar Association (“LACBA”), the Long Beach Bar Association (“LBBA”), and Women Lawyers of Long Beach. For the past four years, Virginia has associated with the Family Violence Appellate Project (“FVAP”), based in Oakland, California; helping FVAP fundraising efforts by serving as a Judge for the FVAP Los Angeles Annual Fundraiser. Her foundation, Griffin Donnell “dot org,” is also a platform for raising national awareness of certain obstacles and barriers which victims of domestic violence face during family law actions.

Event: 

16-American Bar Association:

Friday, June 4, 2021 | Family Law Litigation Committee | Parental alienation is a silent epidemic that plagues the family courts in America. There is no doubt that parental alienation exists and how it has significant short-term and long-term consequences to the children and the targeted parents. There is also no doubt that American family/matrimonial courts have acknowledged the concept, although the theory can sometimes be misused. This program will provide an overview of the concept of parental alienation and explain how to correctly handle it in court.

PA-A is a support group for people struggling with alienation form their children, grand children, parents and other members of their extended family. A well as previously alienated children. These meetings are for sharing our stories, struggles, and victories. (experience, strength and hope)

It is for people on all parts of this journey; for people that have no contact, limited contact, or in recovery and rebuilding their relationships. We are all struggling in unique ways. Our struggles all have common intersections and it is this that brings us together to start the healing process.

Some people think once their alienated child or family member is back in their lives that all is smooth sailing but this is a life long journey. By building this support group we will learn how to heal and thrive as a community.
