About the Author

Kylie Agllias is a social work researcher, educator and Honorary Conjoint Lecturer at the University of Newcastle, Australia. She is particularly interested in qualitative research that investigates sensitive issues and highlights the lived experience of vulnerable populations.


'Kylie Agllias has provided compassionate insights into the motivations and perspectives behind family estrangement as well as a pathway for personal adjustment. This book will provide knowledge and resonance to people working with family estrangement in their professional life, as well as hope and understanding for those personally experiencing estrangement from a family member. There is nothing more reassuring than knowing you're not the only person with a dysfunctional family, and the research in this book will be a comfort to many who have been struggling on alone.'- Becca Bland, writer and founder of Stand Alone, a charity supporting people who are estranged from their family, U.K

'One of the only scholars who systematically studies family estrangement, it is no wonder Kylie Agllias delivers a practical and evocative account of this major family disruption. Her book illuminates a distressing phenomenon that has been so-long ignored and is imperative to anyone who is struggling.' - Kristina M. Scharp, Utah State University, U.S.A
