Parental Alienation Syndrome: What Health Care Providers Need to Know – ScienceDirect


•Parent alienation syndrome (PAS), a type of emotional mistreatment experienced by children of divorce or high-conflict parent separation.•Divorce is recognized as one of the most common adverse childhood experiences.•PAS is a psychologic condition caused as a result of one parent (often the one with primary custody) exercising power over the child and preventing the child from coexisting with the child’s other parent; PAS is a mental state in which a child has untrue, illogical, exaggerated, or unfounded negative feelings against, or rejection of, one parent, due to the influence of the alienating parent.•Health care professionals need to be aware to the features of PAS and support them in identifying children who may require further mental-health-support services from other members of the health care team.
