The three diagnostic indicators of AB-PA provide the DSM-5 diagnosis of Child Psychological Abuse, the 8-symptoms of Gardnerian PAS do not.
The three diagnostic indicators of AB-PA can be reliably identified in a six-session treatment focused assessment protocol costing about $2,500. The 8-symptoms of Gardnerian PAS are identified through a $20,000 to $40,000 child custody evaluation that takes six to nine months to complete and that is arbitrary and unreliable in identifying the pathology.
Seems like a pretty logical sequence to me. I’d recommend the six-session treatment focused assessment protocol that provides you with the DSM-5 diagnosis of Child Psychological Abuse.
Karen Woodall can’t seem to process the logic of that.
