Here is an excerpt:

Since 1985, the claim of parent alienation syndrome (PAS) has represented the extreme collusion of male entitlement, the mental health profession, and family courts. PAS is a pseudoscientific theory used to prevent battered women from protecting their children from exposure to violent and abusive fathers. It asserts that children who resist parents’ visits are not legitimately seeking protection from their fathers but have been “alienated” from their fathers by their mothers. This article examines the impact of PAS on families, its admissibility in courts, and the role of social workers and other mental health practitioners in custody cases through the lens of a social worker, a social justice activist, and a mother who is involved in a PAS custody case.

  1. I am facing a similar issue now. Although there have been repeated child abuse and molestation charges he keeps getting away with it. I still have not been able to convince the courts that my daughter needs supervised visitation. Furthermore, he is now seeking sole custody because he told the courts me and my girls (and I guess the other children as well) keep lying. How can I get help?
