This page does not represent the opinion of any professional organization. Nothing on this site should be construed as offering professional or therapeutic recommendations.

Parental alienation is emotional abuse. To eradicate this form of abuse requires education, advocacy, awareness, and empirical advancement.

Alienation a normal reaction? Maybe, after 1 year. What about 15 years?
As noted by Dr. Bernet, a Vanderbilt University psychiatrist, "We don't want to label kids unnecessarily, but these kids are not reacting in a normal way." "We're talking about kids who have a false belief, a little like a delusion, that the other parent is an evil, dangerous person. To me that looks and sounds like a mental disorder." Obviously, the alienating parent needs help. But, as pointed out by Jaffe et al. (2010) “a minority of parents who suffer from personality and mental disorders may ignore the court and spend their waking hours finding ways to exhaust the other parent emotionally and financially." I do not imagine the parents noted by Jaffe et al. would voluntarily seek help nor do they care about stopping the denigration.
