Parental Alienation: A Serious Form of Child Psychological Abuse That Affects Children All Over the World
Parental alienation is a serious mental illness that should be recognized by professionals who work with children, adolescents, and adults. Parental alienation is most common in high-conflict divorces and separations, but it can occur in other situations as well. This article describes a case study involving two siblings. It depicts parental alienation in the context of a high-conflict divorce, which could be overcome through collaborative intervention by child protective services and the family court, in collaboration with a trained psychologist. Despite the existence of over a thousand professional articles, book chapters, and books, as well as empirical research from around the world (see website https://ckm.vumc.org/pasg), there is still a lack of awareness, if not outright denial, of parental alienation in professional practice. Stopping parental alienating behaviors is critical for the promotion of children’s best interests and family health.
