What is Parental Alienation (PA)
Parental Alienation is the psychological manipulation of a child by one parent into rejecting or creating unwarranted fear for the other parent. Prior to separation or divorce the child had a healthy and loving relationship with the parent who they now alienate. Unfortunately PA can be instigated, not only by the other parent, but, by other family members, or by unenlightened professionals .
The loss of relationship and access to a child through parental alienation is one of the most traumatic experiences for a parent. PA is a confusing dilemma, or loyalty conflict, for a child and is a form of psychological abusive and family violence. Evidence shows parental alienation has lasting adverse psychological effects on both the child and the targeted parent.
