Alienation up and down the family tree

I will be giving a talk next week to a group of grandparents who identify themselves as victims of parental alienation. It appears that alienation can affect grandparents in at least five ways: (1) the middle generation is alienated from his/her child and therefore does not have the right to grant access to the grandparent, (2) the grandparent is alienated from his/her middle generation child who refuses to grant access to the grandchildren, (3) the grandparent’s adult child is deceased or otherwise out of the picture and the son-in-law or daugher-in-law refuses to grant access to the grand children, (4) the grandparent is estranged from his/her adult child who refuses to grant access to the grandchildren (not strictly alienation) and, (5) the son-in-law/daughter-in-law refuses to grant the grandparent access to the grandchildren. In each case, the middle generation is the gatekeeper to the grandchildren.
