How does one make a clear distinction between ‘Parental Alienation Syndrome’, ‘Stockhom Syndrome’, and just a result of (emotional) domestic violence??? (Although I believe this is not isolated to only ’emotional’…as I have found going over my marriage of ‘social, financial and sexual’ abuse…although it seems subtle). Those that I speak to that understand domestic violence see all of his actions, words and traits as ‘completely typical’ of the ‘type’ (domestic violence). But when it comes to being in court, emotional abuse is ‘hearsay’: prove it! Show me it! He is clever and charming and a grand story-teller. And I…I have such self doubt and self blame.
