Tina Swithin Launches 'One Mom's Battle' to Help Educate the Family Court System
SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif., Aug. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ Tina Swithin, Huffington Post Contributor, Family Court Advocate and Author of "Divorcing a Narcissist," has taken her mission to the next level with the creation of a non-profit organization. The new non-profit, "One Mom's Battle," is designed to educate the Family Court System on the connection between high-conflict divorces and personality disorders while providing support to those who may be experiencing such a divorce. What started as one mom's battle in 2009 turned into a small grassroots movement which has since flourished into an international organization with 105 chapters in 5 different countries. Tina's mission has garnered notable endorsements from celebrities, attorneys and psychologists.
"Courtrooms across the country are inundated with high-conflict divorces and the false notion that it takes two to tango. The vast majority of high-conflict divorces can be explained by simply educating the Judges, attorneys and those in the court system on Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) and other Cluster B personality disorders. Individuals with NPD thrive on conflict and are often overcome with the desire to control and win at all costs. Sadly, the children are the ones suffering because the afflicted parent is highly skilled at manipulating and convincing the court that they are motivated by love however, their words and actions are never in alignment which should be the first red-flag for a Judge," says Swithin.
In addition to the creation of her non-profit organization, Tina Swithin has taken her experience in the Family Court System and launched a newly thriving business as a High-Conflict Divorce Coach. Tina explains, "While acting as my own attorney and fighting tooth and nail to protect my children, I learned a great deal about the Family Court System and how to cope when dealing with someone who suffers from Narcissistic Personality Disorder. It is extremely rewarding to take the lessons that I've learned and assist others who are navigating the choppy waters of a high-conflict divorce. It isn't an easy journey but I am living proof that it is possible to rebuild your life and thrive in the aftermath of a contentious divorce."
