"Parental Alienation is the outcome of a process where a child's relationship with one parent (the targeted parent) is negatively influenced by the actions of the other parent (the alienating parent). The child's rejection of the parent occurs in the absence of a reasonable justification for the rejection."
(Haines, Matthewson & Turnball, 2020)
"Parental alienation is triggered by a pattern of alienating behaviours enacted by a parent over time with the intent to harm the relationship between the other parent and the child and/or to harm the alienated parent themselves."
(Harman & Matthewson, 2020)
Parental alienation behaviours must be acknowledged in Australia as it is in other parts of the world. We need legislation which not only acknowledges its existence but firmly and clearly legislates against it.
