parental alienation syndrome

PAS Viewpoints

km-img2 Our quarterly newsletter is sent out to A Kidnapped Mind’s mailing list and featured on our website. Each newsletter features a guest writer or interview. There is an increasingly wide spectrum of subjects and issues relating to Parental Alienation and we want to bring you the latest information and points of view from leading PAS experts, psychologists, lawyers, and judges. We also feature the human side and bring you stories of parents, children, and families who have suffered under the emotional abuse of Parental Alienation. Casting a wide net but sifting through the many misconceptions still associated with PAS our goal is to help educate and pass on as much information as possible. It has been over 17 years since Dash died and even more since I entered the court system to try to help my son. Much has changed for the better since those dark days but there is still much more to do. There can never be enough written and we will continue to do so until every child is given the right to love and be loved by both parents.

Do you have something to say?

How Divorced Parents Lost Their Rights by Robert E. Emery, professor of psychology and the director of the Center for Children, Families, and the Law at the University of Virginia and author of the forthcoming book “Two Parents, One Childhood: A Parenting Plan to Last a Lifetime “ has a lot to say on the subject of how the status of parents changes after divorce and in many cases not for the better and certainly not in the best interest of the child.
