The debate is over: there is no doubt that Parental Alienation exists. However, while an overwhelming number of courts around the country have acknowledged the phenomenon of parental alienation, some detractors continue to create a smokescreen of “controversy,” both in professional literature and in courts. Regardless of how one labels the phenomenon—call it parental alienation, brainwashing, programming, or pathological parenting—American family courts have come to 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.”

Key topics to be discussed:

What parental alienation is and is not.

How the courts have defined the phenomenon

How family court judges, when presented with proper evidence, have ordered appropriate interventions

How to prove a case of parental alienation in court

How to defend against false allegations of parental alienation

Legal interventions -- what works and what doesn't
