Denise McCartan PhD, originally from Belfast, is a Northern Ireland HCPC registered Clinical Psychologist, an Associate Fellow of the BPS, Chartered Psychologist and Scientist and an author with publications in many peer reviewed journals.
She is an Associate Fellow of The British Psychological Society (BPS), Chartered Psychologist and Chartered Scientist. As a Court Expert Witness, she has assessed hundreds of families in the family courts.
She is an expert on Parental Alienation and has recently authored a much welcomed and needed book on this complex topic.
Her book called “Parental Alienation – An Evidence-Based Approach” comes at a very pertinent time in Ireland’s social and legal history. This book provides a comprehensive overview of established evidence-based interventions for the problems inherent in parental alienation. It focuses on helping families and ensuring the needs of the child are met. This text will be of interest to those working in the family courts, particularly expert witnesses, clinical psychologists, therapists, social workers, guardians and other legal professionals.
This book will also be of great interest to politicians and the general public interested in helping to stop all abuse in society. Sir Reg Weir, formerly Presiding Judge (Family Division) of the High Court of Northern Ireland stated “This thoroughly-researched book offers valuable practical guidance on the pervasive problem of parental alienation. It deserves a place in the library of every family practitioner and judge.” .
