Parental Alienation Syndrome

The main pioneer in the area of alienation syndrome frequently termed parental alienation syndrome was Richard Gardner (1992; 1995). He drew attention to the gross injustice that frequently occurred mostly in relation to fathers being rejected from the family as a result of separation or divorce. His two books, “True and False Accusations of Child Sex Abuse”, and “Protocols for Sex Abuse Evaluation” are landmarks in the area of parental alienation syndrome. He has worked for many years as a forensic psychologist dealing with cases in the courts in the United States.
