Many parents that inculcate parental alienation are personality disordered individuals. Any parent that's required to co-parent or manage joint legal custody with an alienating parent is at risk of being harmed.

It would serve the reader to understand "alienators" do not follow laws or court orders and present a real risk of danger. As an example, an alienator will file false allegations of child abuse with police and child protection investigators; false allegations of DV, and frequently cause criminal mischief including property damage. There is a risk of physical harm to both the child and to the parent being targeted.

Inducers of parental alienation have delusional thinking and the term shared delusional disorder is similar to the dynamics of parental alienation syndrome. The presence of delusional thinking in P.A.S. is now being recognized in the social science literature.

A parental alienation consultant is crucial for the very protection of the targeted parent.

Speaking on this subject is Dr. Glenn Ross Caddy.

The targeted parent is at an extremely high risk of poor legal representation, no matter which lawyer they select. Many lawyers have never successfully litigated cases of parental alienation and many lawyers discourage clients from any attempt to even introduce parental alienation to the court saying it's not scientifically accepted by the courts.

A vast amount of misleading information on the internet leads targeted parents to find websites discrediting the existence of parental alienation.

Friends and family members assume there are better ways to overcome these problems than to litigate through the courts, unfortunately these opinions are wrong and further discourage the targeted parent from helping their children.

Mental health professionals lack education and training in this sub-speciality of psychology and psychiatry. Leading children and parents into reunification therapy that fails and making matters even worse.

A parental alienation consultant is the most important expert in helping your lawyer litigate the necessary court intervention. If a targeted parent does not obtain this expertise (for litigation support) the probability of a positive outcome is highly unlikely.

Speaking on the complexities of these legal issues is Dr. Demosthenes Lorandos.

In cases of parental alienation one common intervention is to order the child(ren) and parents into a custody or psychological evaluation. In Canada the courts refer to it as an assessment.

The selection of an evaluator or assessor is highly complex. It is also a significant problem for targeted parents to find a well trained parental alienation assessor, and to get one appointed.

Frequently a targeted parent calls the assessor and discusses the case with the assessor only to later cause them being con- flicted off of the case for bias. Other times, the lawyer does not know which assessor to recommend so the wrong assessor is selected.

A parental alienation consultant is needed to provide a lawyer with the names of the assessor/evaluator, their fee schedules, a copy of their CV, and other crucial information needed for both the opposing lawyer and for the courts. Only the expertise of the consultant can ensure the right selection of this court appointed professional.

Speaking on the subject of Psychological Evaluations is Dr. Richard Sauber.

Parental alienation has been compared with people that become indoctrinated into a cult. Understanding this helps to illustrate the delusional thinking of alienated children. There is a substantial amount of loss for these children and being a targeted parent requires them to understand how their child's behaviour has been modified.

It is important to rely on a parental alienation consultant so a targeted parent understands the boundaries of behaviour for communication, so the parent can minimize the psychological harm to their child. Until treatment begins, it is the role of the parental alienation consultant to help this parent and their extended family members.

Discussing these problems is a leading expert in social science research in parental alienation - Dr. Amy Baker.

One of the litigation problems for targeted parents is knowing what to discuss with the child(ren) and what not to discuss about adult issues. Often times a parent being rejected by a child, will fall into the trap of discussing adult issues to defend themselves. Lawyers representing alienating parents, mythologize mistakes made by a targeted parent in order to justify changes in custody, visitation and relocation.

A parental alienation consultant is needed to micromanage how the targeted parent handles every incident, without one the target parent is greatly disadvantaged.

Drawing attention to this issue is Dr. Abraham Worenklein.
