Parental Alienation And Its Symptoms

PA symptoms

  • An irrational campaign to denigrate and hate

  • Absurd rationalizations (absurd, absurd reasons for rejecting an attitude)

  • Normal ambivalence is a lack of empathy (idealization of one parent and demonization of the other; black-and-white thinking).

  • Support for the parent programming program via reflexive assistance

  • Denigration of not only the target parent, but also his extended family members and friends

  • The "Independent-Thinker" phenomenon (the child's "Own Opinion" and "own will" are stressed)

  • The alienated parent is not held responsible for the cruelty inflicted on him/her (the alienated parent is rejected as if he/she lacks emotion or feeling).

  • Use of "Borrowed Scenarios", the same accusations as those made by the alienating parent.

It is not ethical to ignore parental alienation, which can be a form psychological child abuse or family violence. Professional interventions should be centered on reducing the serious and significant harm that parental alienation causes to children, parents, and extended family members. For the sake of the children's best interests and the well-being of families, it is essential to stop parental alienating behavior.
