                        (i)   I will not conduct any new assessments of, nor provide
                              treatment to, individuals who I believe have been subject to
                              or have engaged in parental alienation;
                  
                        (ii)  I will not provide opinion evidence about parental alienation

                              to individuals I have assessed or treated, except as required
                              by law, in which case I will advise the relevant parties, in
                              advance of providing such opinion evidence, to consult the
                              College's Public Register;
                  
                        (iii) I will inform any individuals whom I am currently assessing
                              and/or treating who I believe have been subject to or have
                              engaged in parental alienation, that I can no longer be
                              involved in their assessment and/or treatment and that I
                              cannot provide opinion evidence about parental alienation to
                              any third party.  I will comply with the College's Policy on
                              Ending the Physician-Patient Relationship.  In any event, I
                              will not provide any further services to these individuals
                              after sixty (60) days from the date upon which I sign this
                              Undertaking; 
                  
                        (iv)  I will, in the opening meeting or phone call with counsel
                              and/or the parties in any new custody/access assessment,
                              address the issue of whether the case in question has
                              elements of parental alienation.  If so, I will promptly
                              inform counsel and/or the parties that I cannot be involved
                              in the assessment;
                  
                        (v)   If, during any on-going custody/access assessment, I have
                              reasonable grounds to believe that any individual who I am
                              assessing has been subject to or has engaged in parental
                              alienation, I will immediately discontinue the assessment and
                              I will promptly inform counsel and/or the parties that I
                              cannot be involved in the assessment and that I cannot
                              provide opinion evidence about parental alienation to any
                              third party;
                  
                        (vi)  I will, in the opening meeting with any individual seeking
                              treatment, address whether the issue(s) for which the
                              individual is seeking treatment has elements of parental
                              alienation.  If so, I will promptly inform the individual
                              that I cannot be involved in his or her treatment;
                  
                        (vii) If, during on-going treatment, I have reasonable grounds to
                              believe that any patient who I am treating has been subject
                              to or has engaged in parental alienation, I will immediately
                              discontinue treatment and end the physician-patient
                              relationship in accordance with the College's Policy on
                              Ending the Physician-Patient Relationship. I will also inform
                              the patient that I cannot provide opinion evidence about
                              parental alienation to any third party.
