PARENTAL ALIENATION EDUCATION
What are the benefits being of ered to the members of our association ?
THE FIRST BENEFIT – CONTINUING EDUCATION.
We provide three continuing educational conferences in navigating through high conflict divorce, child custody disputes, parent child relational problems, and prevention of child abuse.
These problems impact more than just the parents and their children. They also effect extended family members, friends,mental health professionals, family law lawyers, mediators, arbitrators, pediatricians, guidance counsellors, law enforcement professionals, accountants, business valuators, other professionals, and employers because they experience a substantial financial loss when these problems spill over into the workplace.
These continuing educational benefits can only be obtained online from PAE
THE SECOND BENEFIT – FREE CONSULTATIONS
Members that become better informed and educated will now need immediate assistance in how to manage their individual problems and they will also need referrals to mental health professionals, family law lawyers, mediators and consultants.
Offering guidance, and finding professionals with this required expertise is a time consuming process that involves talking to a consultant and filling out detailed intake form documentation.
The initial phase of a consultation takes a minimum of 2 hours and referrals to mental health professionals, lawyers and other professionals can take substantially longer due to a wide number of factors, including availability of these professionals.
What is the value of the benefits being offered to the members ?
THE VALUE OF BENEFITS OFFERED TO MEMBERS
CONTINUING EDUCATION BENEFITS
The value of the three ( 3 ) continuing educational conferences : $349.00
A two hour consultation to review the intake documentation, and to speak to a consultant would cost a nonmember $300.00 /hour. Therefore, this consultation benefit has a value of : $600.
The good news is that we are offering all of these benefits to your members Free of Charge.
The total value of the benefits offered to each member adds up to: $949.
Is the partnership in alliance with the mission of the association ?
MISSION ALLIANCE IS ATTUNED TO YOUR ASSOCIATION
We know that your association wants to provide its members with a value worth many times the cost of any fee to join. We understand you need to calibrate benefits to their bucket list. We also know, it’s important for you to help your members reach their fullest potential.
Is this a partnership in alignment with your culture and mission ? We think so. Consider this :
Parental Alienation Education ( PAE ) is a pro active support system for your members, and their extended family. Do you need to ask them if they care about their children or what it would mean to be able to get help with high conflict divorce and separation ?
Do you think you really need to ask them whether or not they would like help with their parent-child relational problems, or if they would like to know what they can do to protect their children from abuse ? We already know the answer without even having to ask. So it goes without saying that this partnership makes sense.
Setting aside the fact that the CE benefits provide substantial savings on the cost of continuing education, they also contain cost reduction benefits because we eliminate or reduce a substantial amount of their legal and psychological fees and this savings adds to wealth retention for your members.
Are these benefits what members want and need ?
GIVE YOUR MEMBERS WHAT NOBODY ELSE CAN
Parental alienation is the unjustified rejection of a parent, caused by the negative influence of the other parent Even most people who have never had it happen to them, understand and relate to the concept because they know a friend or a relative it did happen to. Many times a parent receiving this education will say something like :
“ I didn’t even know that there was a term for this problem. I’ve been struggling with it for so long. Thank you for helping. “
We know that most associations believe that a successful partnership depends on surveys of what their members want and need, but there are exceptions to every rule. Most of your members have no way of learning about alienation or that it can happen to intact families or to families that go through divorce and separation. Bringing awareness and understanding of these dynamics to your members will help them to truly appreciate that these benefits – are exactly they want and need.
It is also hard for anyone to admit that they have a child that might hate them for unjustified reasons. This inhibiting factor may not show up asa response on a survey, so it’s important that your members have some privacy in accessing these benefits.
Why does the association need to be concerned about continuing education regarding custody battles, divorce issues, child abuse or parent child relational problems ?
DIVORCE ISSUES IMPACT YOUR ASSOCIATION MEMBERS
Associations need to look after the welfare of their members in the same way that companies look after employees, and there is a great deal of concern being focussed on these issues by employers. In an article titled :Employers Protect Yourself from Custody Battles That Hold Your Company Hostage, published by Charlotte Hardwick, February 6, 2014, she wrote:
“ Child custody? How’d that get to be an employer’s concern. When an employee faces child custody litigation, it will effect their ability to do their job. “
Imagine how much better off your members would be if your association could help them to work at their fullest capacity. One way to retain members is by finding creative benefits that actually go beyond saving them dollars and cents, and doesn’t that make sense to you ?
Charlotte Hardwick goes on to say:
“ Unlike other kinds of employee stress, a custody dispute could keep creating turmoil until the employee’s youngest child turns 18. No workplace is immune. “
Imagine how these educational benefits could transform a persons life. We see it happen every day.
Research validates examples of poor work performance caused by these dynamics: They include:
* Absence for appointments with attorney, evaluations, court dates
* Stress making them more distracted, and even ill ( more sick leave )
* Unavailable for travel or extended hours
* Co-workers having to pick up the slack, so they feel put upon
* Involving other employees in the developments, which side tracks them
* Depression, anger and other emotional spill over on the job
In another social science article, the discussion turned to what employers can do to help their business, and to help their employees. Your association has a similar interest in helping members so it would help you to hear this advise:
“ Experts agree that it is essential that employers connect the dots between the serious emotional and financial stress of divorce and lost productivity. It is clear, they say, that the need to educate and support employees during distressful times should not be considered a luxury, but should be regarded as a high-priority necessity. As the Grier Recovery Institute says, “ When your heart is broken, your head doesn’t work. “
Here is another excerpt from the article :
“ The Harvard Business Review has been quoted as estimating that presenteeism costs American business $150 billion annually in direct and indirect costs.“
Presenteeism is a condition when employees are physically present, but emotionally, mentally, creatively and professionally not there. Impact of Divorce on the Workplace, May 4, 2011, by JoAnne Donner.
Large companies are more likely to invest in continuing education because reducing problems in the workplace ( caused by divorce, custody disputes and parent-child relational problems ) is worth it. Small companies on the other hand would never make this kind of investment.
Do the members of your association work in a small business ? If you answered ‘yes’ then your association is the only hope they have of getting these benefits. Isn’t that a key consideration in the selection of a partner ?
Would an outside continuing education vendor, create a conflict for workshops and conference events now being offered to members ?
AN ONLINE EDUCATION VENDOR IS THE RIGHT CHOICE
PAE offers online continuing education protected by advanced and costly encrypted technology and that protects the intellectual rights of this material and makes it more valuable because it is difficult for unauthorized users to gain access. Your association is making the right choice in selecting us as an NDR partner and in a research article in the OJDLA they report :
“ Many institutions have however, selected a third option: selecting to leverage a corporate online education vendor partner to assist with the launch of new online education programs.” ( Baines & Chiarelott, 2010; Hillman & Corkery, 2010; Quigley & Pereing ( 2011 ); Russell & AASCU ( 2010 ).
Also your association is not likely to invest in continuing education that requires advanced technology and infrastructure, and that is a fact supported by research:
“ Advanced technology systems and infrastructure are often prerequisites for online education programming and may require substantial institutional investment.” ( Lei & Gouva, 2010 ) Online Education Vendor Partners: When And How To Select One, published in the Fall 2012, Online Journal of Distance Learning Administration
PAE has built into its CE programs the technology and infrastructure that makes these benefits so hard to access and so valuable to all of the members of your association.
Would an online continuing education program on this subject have more value than organizing face to face workshops ?
ONLINE CONTINUING EDUCATION IS THE RIGHT DECISION
PAE conferences contain several days of presentations and workshop sessions and very few professionals have the expertise to lecture on the subject of alienation and high conflict divorce.
All of the leading experts in this field have made presentations in our program. The cost of hosting a workshop on alienation would also be very expensive Why reinvent the wheel ? There is also research, that online continuing education is more beneficial than face-to-face instruction.
In, Re-Examining & Repositioning Higher Education : Twenty Economic and Demographic Factors Driving Online and Blended Program Enrollments, Journal of Asynchronus Learning Networks, Vol 13: Issue 4
“ Online learning is much more conducive to the expansion of learning than face-to-face interaction. “
Putting this research into focus:
“ In 2009, the United States Department of Education published a report entitled Evaluation of Evidence Based Practices in Online Learning: A Meta-Analysis and Review of Online Learning Studies. This report included a meta-analysis and a systemic search for empirical studies of the effectiveness of online learning. According to the report, the overall finding of the meta-analysis is that classes with online learning on average produce stronger student learning outcomes than do classes with solely face-to-face interaction. “:
Cultivating new members for your association also depends on attract- ing Generation X’ers ( 1965-1983 ) and Generation Y Millenials ( 1984-2002 ). They were born into the internet age and follow this research, they shop as much for convenience as they do for value. Most prefer online education.
Are there any CEU’s being offered to members, through these online continuing educational conferences ?
CEU’s ARE AVAILABLE TO YOUR MEMBERS
We offer 18 CEU’s for your members, if CEU’s are what they need. It is also important to keep in mind that many members are simply interested in continuing education and not necessarily CEU’s. A section of the PAE website is dedicated to CEU information, and it includes a list of all the Associations and Boards that accept these CEU’s, including the American Psychological Association.
Are there NDR benefits relating to advertising and sponsorships ?
ADVERTISER AND SPONSORSHIP NDR
The right demographic to attract advertisers and sponsorships is often times an affluent population of professionals. We have the capacity to refer a large population of affluent professionals through the PAE Listserv.
We have one of the largest listserv populations of lawyers, mental health professionals, mediators, MD’s, financial professionals and other types of professionals from all over the world, and we want to emphasize that our website is also multilingual.
As partners we would use this Listserv to help promote advertisers and sponsorships to your association.
PAE supports your mission and the culture of your association, so whatever we can do to lend a helping hand to find you some new advertisers and sponsors, volunteer staff resources, use our social media communities to make announcements, count us in.

Where have PAE continuing education conferences been hosted ?
LOCATION SITES FOR PAE CONFERENCES
PAE conferences have been held at The Mt. Sinai School of Medicine, NYC, The University of Toronto, Ontario, Dawson College, Quebec, and The Metro Toronto Convention Center, Toronto, Ontario.
PAE has also expanded into State Mandated Divorce Education Programs and these programs have been adopted by the US Courts in over 500 counties across the United States.
What kind of cost and resources would the association need to dedicate to integrate these benefits ?
ASSOCIATION COSTS AND ENGAGEMENT
Every partnership involves some degree of time to get the word out. Your engagement marketing presents an opportunity to help your members learn just how much you care about them. What you say to your members is entirely up to you, but PAE will put together all of the marketing materials for you give your members.
Due to the fact that we provide our benefits online, it will be necessary for the association to use its Listserv to deliver the PAE marketing materials. It may also be necessary for the association to consider alternative ways for this engagement marketing to maximize interest in the program. We would leave this matter entirely up to you.
After the initial engagement marketing, the association will need to send to the PAE the email addresses of all the members to receive their benefits. It is not necessary for PAE to know the names of your members, but we do need to have their email address. Association agrees to pay to PAE a Flat Rate Fee stated in the Memorandum of Understanding, for all the members to receive the PAE benefits.
Soon after we receive the email list from the association all the members on this list will be sent the PAE benefits which they will be able to keep on a permanent basis.There are no association resources needed to integrate the delivery of the benefits to the members. The association agrees to market the benefits to members on a bi-annual basis.
This is the full extent of involvement needed by the association to bring the PAE benefits to its members, and we believe that the overall amount of time and cost to the association will be very minimal.
Do you have an NDR contract we can review ?
