The aim of this project is to explore the experiences of fathers who have had their relationship with their children disrupted either through having contact withheld or the relationship manipulated. After the breakdown of an intimate relationship, or sometimes whilst that relationship is ongoing, some fathers have described that they have become estranged from their children through withholding of contact, manipulation of systems that restricted contact, or becoming alienated through the other parent's manipulation of the child. It is hoped from this study we can gain a greater understanding of men’s experiences and the impact it has.
