Parental Alienation is either a form of domestic violence or on the continuum of domestic violence behaviors

DSM UPDATE - While the terms; Parental Alienation or Parental Alienation Syndrome did not make it into the DSM IV, not all is lost. Instead, what you will find is a discussion regarding the 'Child/Parent Relational Problem' where the discourse surrounds the cognitive issues of the problem that have the potential to include; "negative attributions of the other's intentions, hostility toward or scapegoating of the other, and unwarranted feelings of estrangement." According to Dr. William Bernet, one of the proponents for the PA language inclusion, "That's a pretty good description of a child's view of the alienated parent. “ At the very least, what has been acknowledged here is the conditions that must be present for alienation of one parent to occur. This is similar to what Dr. Craig Childress calls the 'parental alienation dynamic'. Same/same. All it really amounts to is the DSM IV acknowledging that these behaviors can lead a child to have cognitive problems of feeling 'unwarranted feelings of estrangement' towards what we call the 'target parent'.

Guys With Kids (Important Discussion):
We only support organizations who show an understanding that children need both parents, and that either parent is equally capable of the choice to perpetrate hate or declare peace.
The International Access and Visitation Centers conference was held in Toronto last month.


PAAO was there and spoke to most of the 200 or so practitioners. Of course all were familiar with alienation and it's results. Everyone was not only gratified to see PAAO at the event, they all also acknowledged that PA is either a form of Domestic violence or on the continuum of Domestic Violence behaviors.

We have a right to speak

Parent and child estrangement as a result of a highly conflictual parental relationship...

Dear Lawyer for the Child:

Without an authorization to release protected health information on a specific case, I am providing my professional insights regarding children caught in conflict between their parents. Specifically, I am providing generic information about situations when there is an estrangement between a parent and child as a result of a highly conflictual parental relationship.

The child of a high conflict parental relationship frequently feels like a rope in a tug of war between his parents.

Asking the child to decide about her/his relationship with the non-custodial parent exacerbates this impossible and detrimental situation and leaves her/him with no good options: it is a double-bind situation in which she/ he cannot have both parents because she/he knows that seeking a relationship with the non-custodial parent will be perceived as an act of betrayal by the custodial parent. When this dynamic had been first observed by the child psychiatrists who later founded the family therapy movement, they documented it on the psychiatric ward when observing their psychotic child patients when an interaction with their families.

In the extreme situation, this family dynamic, labeled by these psychiatrists as the “pathological triangle,” as per Murray Bowen, does indeed lead to serious mental disorders in the child. I have seen the serious detrimental effects to children in my own practice as a result of the triangulation. Unfortunately, due to the influences that technology has now afforded the younger population, I am seeing socio-pathology instead of psychosis in this population.

We have an obligation to help these children resolve their anger by working it through with both of their parents.

Family Law Reform Congressional Testimony - Linda Gottlieb, L.M.F.T., L.C.S.W.


The campaign of denigration is an example of the construction of family myths which are used for the purpose of turning a child against a previously loved and loving parent. The child is programmed to believe that her/his other parent is: worthless, selfish, unloving, malevolent, undeserving, and dangerous, etc. The effective result is that the child becomes convinced that she/he will be happier, healthier, and better adjusted if the targeted parent is eradicated from her/his life. At the orchestration by the alienating parent, the alienated child adopts the following feelings, wishes and behaviors regarding the alienated/targeted parent: 

Examples of the denigrating behaviors are listed below and are not inclusive:

1) Refusing and/or shunning visits with the rejected parent for no justifiable

reason.

2) Behaving miserably and disrespectfully, sometimes abusively, towards the

rejected parent when there is any contact—even in reunification therapy.

3) Depriving the rejected parent of important information including but not

limited to medical, educational, and social activities. Telling the rejected

parent that she/he is not entitled to have this information. Not consulting or

collaborating with the targeted parent in these important aspects of the child’

s life.

4) Not informing about and excluding the rejected parent from activities, parent/teacher conferences, birthdays, religious events, graduations, etc.

5) Belittling, criticizing, and deprecating the rejected parent.

6) Removing of pictures and all memorabilia of the rejected parent.

7) Failing to communicate with the rejected parent. This contact includes the

telephone, text messaging, e-mailing, Skype, or other methods.

8) Verbally and physically abusing the rejected parent by the child and/or

alienating parent—even in public locations and at the child’s activities and

events.

9) Defying the rejected parent's supervision and authority.

10) Refusing and/or returning the rejected parent's gifts, cards, vacation

opportunities, and offers for help, counseling, and guidance.

11) Making false allegations of child abuse and/or domestic violence.

12) Amnesia about and denial of a loving and supportive relationship with the

rejected parent prior to the onset of the alienation.

13) Not contacting the rejected parent to wish her/him happy birthday, happy

father’s day/mother’s day, or happy holidays on other occasions. Of

course, visit refusal on the rejected parent’s special day

14) Making the rejected parent like a persona non grata in the child’s life

Bad Family Court Judges cause extreme damage and pain to Families and Children!

Color of law


Interest

In United States law, the term color of law denotes the "mere semblance of legal right", the "pretense or appearance of" right; hence, an action done under color of law colors (adjusts) the law to the circumstance, yet said apparently legal action contravenes the law.Under color of authority is a legal phrase used in the US indicating that a person is claiming or implying the acts he or she is committing are related to and legitimized by his or her role as an agent of governmental power, especially if the acts are unlawful.

Color of law
Color of law refers to an appearance of legal power to act but which may operate in violation of law. For example, though a police officer acts with the "color of law" authority to arrest someone, if such an arrest is made without probable cause the arrest may actually be in violation of law. In other words, just because something is done with the "color of law" does not mean that the action was lawful. When police act outside their lawful authority and violate the civil rights of a citizen, the FBI is tasked with investigating.
The Supreme Court has interpreted the United States Constitution to construct laws regulating the actions of the law enforcement community. Under "color of law", it is a crime for one or more persons using power given to him or her by a governmental agency (local, state or federal), to willfully deprive or conspire to deprive another person of any right protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States. Criminal acts under color of law include acts within and beyond the bounds or limits of lawful authority. Off-duty conduct may also be covered if official status is asserted in some manner. Color of law may include public officials and non-governmental employees who are not law enforcement officers such as judges, prosecutors, and private security guards. Furthermore, in many states it is unlawful to falsely impersonate a police officer, a federal officer or employee, or any other public official or to use equipment used by law enforcement officers, such as flashing lights or a fake police badge. Possession of a firearm also can enhance the penalty for false impersonation of a police officer.
Color of office refers to an act usually committed by a public official under the appearance of authority, but which exceeds such authority. An affirmative act or omission, committed under color of office, is sometimes required to prove malfeasance in office.
