Geerte Frenken talks to Dr. Debra Wingfield


Is the father of your kid(s) an obsessed abuser? In this special episode of Hell is For Children Dr. Debra Wingfield explains how Family Court fails to identify coercive controlling abusive fathers, the devastating consequences for Protective Mothers and their judicially trafficked children PLUS effective ways to heal!

Dr. Debra Wingfield is an expert on the topic of Domestic Violence through coercive control which manifests in corrupt family court when Protective Mothers lose custody (or are forced to share custody) of their children to abusive fathers. With over 40 years training therapists and counseling children and adults who experienced child maltreatment and family violence, Dr. Debra Wingfield now educates and trains professionals across multiple disciplines, mental health, advocates, Attorneys, and community members on the impacts of domestic, Coercive Control, and family violence.


Dr. Debra Wingfield is the author of From Darkness to Light: Your Inner Journey, a workbook to help adults heal from child maltreatment and family violence; Through a Child’s Voice: Transformational Journaling for tweens and up who experienced child abuse and family violence. Her Eyes Wide Open: Help! with Control Freak Co-Parents helps protective parents assess and heal from domestic violence/coercive control. Dr. Wingfield is currently writing Evidence Uncovered: Non-physical Domestic Violence Allegations – Coercive Controlling Violence (CCV) (expected publication early 2017). This book is designed to enlighten members of the legal profession and Forensic family law professionals about the multiple patterns of Coercive Controlling Violence (CCV). These patterns often lead to legal separation and child custody/parenting time disputes. This book grew out of the change in the Colorado best interests of the child statutes effective July 1, 2013. The statute calls for updated tools and skills for legal and Forensic court professionals to integrate into these cases. Subsequent to passing this statute, AFCC (Association for Family and Conciliation Courts) adopted guidelines (2016) for child custody evaluations to include assessing for interpersonal violence.

Dr. Wingfield was a faculty member at Regis university teaching psychology and counseling courses. She developed and taught a domestic violence counselor training curriculum at the University of Southern Colorado (now Colorado State University-Pueblo) from 1994 – 2001. Dr. Wingfield holds a Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of West Florida (1975), and a Doctor of Education degree in Counselor Education from the University of Northern Colorado.

So what is a Protective Mother? A Protective Mother tries to protect her child or children from their abusive father by many means necessary, which is an uphill battle in today’s corrupt global Family Court system that thrives on paternal entitlement. Maternal Deprivation at the hands of abusive fathers has reached pandemic proportions! However, Protective Mothers worldwide are uniting to fight for the right to keep their children in what could be called a new Civil Rights movement.

Professional Fine Artist and College Professor Geerte Frenken is a Protective Mother fighting for her court-abducted daughter Jasmijn. She is the host of the CCN Live TV show HELL IS FOR CHILDREN about the global plight of Protective Mothers and their children that airs every Saturday at 3PM Eastern Time (21:00 Central European Time).
