You were abused. You escaped.But now your children are rejecting you. You managed to survive and then escape an abuser. It's time to rebuild your life, and that's already hard enough. But now your children are angry, disrespectful, even contemptuous towards you. They seem to have forgotten who you are. If you don't understand what happened or know what to do about it, you can wind up depressed, angry, and completely ineffective as a mother. That's Maternal Alienation. It's more than a child's period of adolescent rebellion, and far more than a time of difficult readjustment after divorce: What we're discussing here is your damaged relationship with your children, who grew up witnessing you be abused - and now that it's over, they've turned away from you. The pain and the loneliness can impact your life to the point where you lose yourself, because you aren't operating from a position of strength and dignity. THE ALIENATED MOTHER is a coaching series within a handbook, designed to help you find your way to live a meaningful life in spite of the pain of being alienated from your children. After all, you still have a job to do as their mother, and it's the same job you always had: Loving them, teaching them, and living the example you want them to follow.

"In general, I write about women's issues. But my passion in life is to change the way the culture regards battered women, and help them to reclaim their lives after escaping an abuser." - Jenna Brooks
A staunch Mothers Rights advocate, Jenna Brooks is a bestselling novelist, a seminar author and instructor, a columnist, and a professionally trained and certified coach, specializing in divorce, post-divorce, and Domestic Violence. She has a particular interest in the issues confronting Christian women, and is certified by The American Association of Christian Counselors.
The award-winning author of the October Snow series, Jenna is also the creator of several seminars and coaching processes. She is trained in Batterer Intervention, Trauma and Trauma Informed Care, and is a former state-certified Crisis Advocate and Domestic Violence Hotline veteran.
Jenna says, "I concentrate on advocacy for battered mothers because in my experience, the Family Court often takes up where an abuser leaves off. Too often, these women are every bit as injured by a paternalistic, even oppressive Family Court system as they are by an abuser. Their experiences in the court are simply another betrayal. As a society, we pay little attention to the outcome of battered mothers - both legally and culturally."
Jenna is a former columnist for The Derry News and The Bangor Daily News, and is the former host of "The Café" on WSMN Radio out of Nashua, NH. Her debut novel, October Snow, is the winner of the 2014 Readers Favorite Awards/Drama. Find her online at jennabrooks.weebly.com.
"The book gives insights into the kind of hell many mothers survive and the contemptuous attitude toward these women. The book helps all those mothers take back their strength and discover themselves... The author speaks about a relevant topic that is prevalent in the society we live in and it helps them to meet the problems head-on, instead of being ashamed of what they are going through." - Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite
