The American psychologist Dr Richard Gardner discovered the concept of Parental Alienation Syndrome in 1985. He based this concept on his observations of child custody cases involving false allegations of child sexual and/or physical abuse. Gardner states PAS relates to the combination of two contributing factors:
– The programming or brainwashing of the child by the alienating parent to denigrate the target parent
– The self-created contributions of the child in support of the alienating parent’s campaign of denigration against the target parent
Have you witnessed or are going through PA?
Have you taken this to court? What evidence did you provide to prove PA was taking place?
