Powerless to parent; powerless to protect: The experiences of alienated parents in the UK

Parental alienation is the unwarranted denigration or rejection of a parent where there was a previous loving relationship. Despite thirty years of study establishing its aetiology, prevalence, appropriate interventions and outcomes for children, parental alienation remains a highly contentious concept in the UK. Additionally, there has been minimal exploration of the experiences of alienated parents across the globe. A recent Q analysis uncovered the subjective and inter subjective experiences of British alienated parents. An unexpected consensus became apparent which merited further analysis of the data. Through this phenomenological exploration of the participants’ narratives, a pervasive sense of “powerlessness” emerged. The source of this felt sense of powerlessness is considered and recommendations for policy and practice are suggested.
