child psychological abuse
The purpose of this presentation is to explain how causing parental alienation is an important contemporary example of child psychological abuse. Parental alienation is the mental condition of a child (usually one whose parents are engaged in a high-conflict separation or divorce) who allies strongly with one parent (the alienating parent) and rejects a relationship with the other parent (the target parent) without legitimate justification.
