Parental Alienation: The Legal Landscape (On-Demand)

$169.00

The debate is over: There is no doubt that Parental Alienation exists. The detractors continue to create a smokescreen of “controversy” both in professional literature and in courts. But an overwhelming number of family courts around the country and internationally have accepted the notion of parental alienation, condemned it, and have acknowledged it as a significant factor in their decisions modifying custody and providing other appropriate intervention. Regardless of how one labels the phenomenon—call it parental alienation, brainwashing, programming, or pathological parenting—American family courts have to come a conclusion that parental alienation exists and needs to be addressed. As one trial judge wrote: “Anybody old enough to drink coffee knows that embittered parties can and do manipulate their children.”
