Parental Alienation - is it abuse?

This situation is becoming increasingly common in divorce and separated families where there is high conflict parenting. Parental alienation is considered a form of psychological abuse, however it is not commonly recognized or validated in the justice and child protection system. There is much work left to do in order to advocate and educate judges, lawyers, child welfare workers, and police officers.
