Living losses

The voices of mothers living with parental alienation

Living Losses was a collaborative project between mothers, grandmothers, aunts, sisters, daughters and granddaughters, friends and other women across the UK to remember lost children and raise awareness for everyone affected by the loss of a child through Parental Alienation. The project was created by the Family Separation Clinic and launched on International Parental Alienation Awareness Day 25th April 2015, in London.


I recorded the experiences of some of the mothers who took part, as part of the project. Their painful stories serve to highlight the damage that is caused, not only to children, but also to parents. I am grateful to those who took part for their honesty and willingness to share the hurt that is coping with a living loss.
