Childless Mother

This brief account of maternal alienation from Juno’s Ramblings mirrors the experience of thousands of mothers whose relationship with their children has been targeted by their abuser. Let me say to you that you are not alone – it is just that we don’t hear so much from mothers living apart from their children because of the stigma, the shame, and the fear of being judged, criticised and blamed. We need to raise awareness of this problem by sharing our experiences as this blogger does so bravely here. Thank you Juno.

About Dr Laura Monk

I am a researcher and counselling tutor based at University of Nottingham. My doctoral research investigated how to improve professionals' responses to mothers who become separated from their children. I developed a training workshop for the professionals who mothers come into contact with - largely at the intersection of health and social care, the family courts and domestic abuse services. I am also a counsellor and psychotherapist and offer feminist therapy for survivors of domestic abuse - especially coercive control. I am a Women's Aid domestic violence prevention advocate.
