What Is Grandparent Alienation Syndrome?

Grandparent alienation syndrome, sometimes referred to as GAS, is a term spun off from the term parental alienation syndrome, or PAS. In a 1985 journal article, psychiatrist Richard A. Gardner used the term parental alienation syndrome (PAS) to describe a process in which a parent “programs” a child to reject the other parent, usually during the course of a custody battle. The child is rewarded for acting antagonistically toward the targeted parent and for devising his or her own charges against the targeted parent.
