Parental Alienation

Resources for parents who are dealing with parental alienation — the pathological alignment of a child with a favored parent.

Every family has rules, myths, assigned roles, loyalties, and alliances (one alliance almost guaranteed to develop symptoms in a child is when a parent allies with a child against the other parent). ~James Framo, 1996 (one of the first to practice Marriage and Family Therapy).
