is a process of one parent (the alienating parent)
influencing a child (alienated or targeted child)
to turn against and reject their other parent (alienated or targeted parent)
without legitimate justification.
The alienating parent can also be a grandparent, a step parent and even a non-family member.
Parental alienation can occur even when the relationship between the targeted child and targeted parent was once a very positive one.
Parental Alienation Australia Research (PAAR) is a group formed by Parental Alienation Australia Ltd t/as Eeny Meeny Miney Mo Foundation. The members of this group are working together to develop and conduct research in Australia on Parental Alienation.
