Parental Alienation

An Open Letter to the Parental Alienation Study Group (PASG):

Dr. Craig Childress: Attachment Based "Parental Alienation" (AB-PA)

An Open Letter to the Parental Alienation Study Group (PASG):


Don’t you see my path?

In order to leverage the solution to “parental alienation” we must be able to hold all mental health professionals accountable for an accurate assessment of the pathology, and an accurate diagnosis of the pathology.

We do this through the DSM-5.  The DSM-5 diagnosis we seek in ALL cases of “parental alienation” is V995.51 Child Psychological Abuse, Confirmed.  The attachment-related pathology of “parental alienation” is not a child custody issue, it is a child protection issue.  That is the definitional change that will lead to the solution.

I have laid the Foundations for this diagnosis.  I have identified three definitive diagnostic indicators for the pathology.  These three diagnostic indicators are all established symptoms that are within the diagnostic scope of practice for ALL mental health professionals: 1) attachment-related symptoms, 2) personality disorder features, 3) an encapsulated…

Parental Alienation Database

This online database pertains to parental alienation, a mental condition in which a child – usually one whose parents are engaged in a high-conflict separation or divorce – allies strongly with one parent (the preferred parent or alienating parent) and rejects a relationship with the other parent (the target parent or alienated parent) without legitimate justification.

Parental Alienation Study Group (PASG)

Dr. Kathleen M. Reay, a founding member of the Parental Alienation Study Group (PASG) Board of Directors, a non-profit organization in Nashville, TN, was elected to Fellow status in the American Psychological Association (APA) in 2015. This designation recognizes Dr. Reay’s outstanding contributions in the field of psychology, specifically relating to her sub-specialty in parental alienation and for championing the Family Reflections Reunification Program, a highly successful evidence-based therapeutic program designed to treat severely alienated children and their family system. Dr. Reay has accepted an invitation to present at the Society for Family Psychology’s Fellow Symposium at APA in Denver, Colorado in August 2016.

The Fellow Symposium at the APA annual conference this August will be embracing a new paradigm of emerging integrative evidence based practices (I-EBP).  I-EBPs are created from integrating diverse EBP components or methodologies, guided by theory, sensitivity to cultural context, reproducibility and openness to evaluation.  In this symposium, Dr. Reay’s presentation is titled “Parental Alienation: It’s Not Business as Usual.” The theme of her presentation on parental alienation will demonstrate how the I-EBP meme is transforming clinical and family psychology. Specifically, Dr. Reay’s presentation will provide scientific understanding of the concept of parental alienation and provide explanation for the gross failure of traditional therapeutic approaches relating to moderate and severe cases of parental alienation. Further, Dr. Reay will discuss the Family Reflections Reunification Program (FRRP), a highly successful psychoeducational and experiential program designed to treat severely alienated children and their family system (Reay, 2015).
