Program Summary

The debate is over: there is no doubt that Parental Alienation exists. The detractors continue to create a smokescreen of “controversy” both in professional literature and in courts. But an overwhelming number of family courts around the country and internationally have accepted the notion of parental alienation, condemned it, and have acknowledged it as a significant factor in their decisions modifying custody and providing other appropriate interventions.

Regardless of how one labels the phenomenon—call it parental alienation, brainwashing, programming, or pathological parenting—American family courts have to come 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.”

This course is co-sponsored with myLawCLE.

Key topics to be discussed:

  • What parental alienation is
  • How the courts have defined the phenomenon
  • How family court judges, when presented with proper evidence, have ordered appropriate interventions
  • How to prove parental alienation in court
