How is CBT effective for the alienated parent as well as the alienator?

The answer is CBT has been extensively used for treating depression; anxiety disorders such as panic disorder and agoraphobia, social phobia, post-traumatic stress, obsessivecompulsive disorder; eating disorders; addictive disorders; certain chronic illnesses; personality disorders; and some forms of psychoses. Many alienated parents experience one or more types of psychological distress such as grief, helplessness, hopelessness, depression, acute or chronic stress, anxiety, fear, worry, panic, low tolerance for frustrating and difficult situations, anger, post-traumatic stress, and addiction among other types. Emotion and behaviour are greatly influenced by cognition. CBT acts directly on the symptoms that create distress. Not only is there widespread recognition that distorted or maladaptive cognitions play a prominent role in the cause of psychological distress, but there is also widespread recognition that distorted or maladaptive cognitions play a prominent role in the perpetuation of psychological distress. The overwhelming body of literature reviews on the effectiveness of CBT as a therapeutic approach for treating various types of psychological distress, including relationship difficulties, lends support for treating not only alienating parents but alienated parents and children, too
