What exactly is parental alienation?

How do I prove it?

Does parental alienation apply to children over the age of 18?

What are the consequences for the parent who has successfully alienated a child ?

What healing can done once alienation has been confirmed ?

Is it possible to enforce visitation in these cases? 

Learn the answers to these and many more pressing questions in our live Parental Alienation Q&A taking place this week. 

Parental alienation is a recurring problem that affects many families who are experiencing conflict, separation or divorce. It is the situation where the alienating parent teaches the child to reject, fear and avoid having contact with the other parent.
