A Television Special Investigation of Family Courts and Parental Alienation Issues




Readers who are interested in parental alienation (PA) issues may want to see this video:

https://www.abc10.com/mobile/article/news/local/abc10-originals/the-problem-with-family-court/550687204



It contains a good deal of interesting information about PA claims and the people who make them.

I would like to point out, though, that while this clip stresses the role of PA accusations in the placement of children with abusive parents, obviously a critically important issue, PA treatments would be problematic even if they never served to make an inappropriate custody change or to cut off contact between a child and a preferred parent. PA treatments and the concepts they are based on are implausible and incongruent with what is known about chiuldren’s development, in addition to lacking empirical support.
