Not everything is “parental alienation.”
Our goal is to bring the unproductive and damaging debate surrounding the construct of “parental alienation” to an end.
On one side of this debate are those persons who are concerned about authentic sexual abuse, physical abuse, and domestic violence.
On the other side of this debate are those persons who are concerned about the psychological abuse inflicted on a child by the pathology of a narcissistic/borderline parent.
We are all on the same side. Protecting children from child abuse. We all want to protect all children from sexual abuse, physical abuse, domestic violence, and psychological abuse by a parent. There is no debate.
So how did this false divide within mental health occur? We must bring it to an end. We are all on the same side of protecting 100% of children 100% of the time from all forms of child abuse.
