What is Parental Alienation?

Parents who separate can often feel that they want to be in control when it comes to their children. This can stem from a multitude of reasons such as feelings of resentment, fear or anger towards their former partner. It is important that a child’s needs are put above and beyond that of the feelings which the parents may hold towards each other. Children are heavily influenced by their parents and hostility between the two can have an unfortunate result in their child; in effect, siding with one parent against the non-resident parent, intentionally or unintentionally. This may manifest itself as the child’s desire to reject all contact with that parent.

When Parental Alienation arises between implacably hostile parents, it is essential not just to address the hostile parent’s behaviour but also to consider what course of action is in the best interests of the child, with a view to promoting a relationship with both parents whilst trying to minimise further trauma or distress.
