If you or your loved one has experience with the form of child abuse known as parental alienation, you should be familiar with the book “Divorce Poison” by Dr. Richard Warshak.
Dr. Warshak is a prominent psychologist who specializes in helping children and families caught in the grip of this terrible phenomena. If you or someone you love are in a situation where a child is becoming alienated, it is crucial to immediately take steps. DO NOT believe the conventional wisdom that the children will eventually grow out of it. The problem is not what it does to you, it is what it does to the child.
Despite the fact that this has gone on for many years, the court cases I have seen demonstrate that judges often do not understand that by failing to instantly intervene on behalf of these children, they are creating successive generations of family law litigants.
