Informed practitioners will acknowledge that, some children do indeed reject a parent for what is termed normative reasons such as neglectful or abusive parenting. This is referred to as true estrangement and can never be parental alienation.
Furthermore, some children and young people will regulate distance and closeness with each parent as they navigate developmental milestones. This too cannot be considered parental alienation.
We use and evidence-based model (with others to follow) to underpin the current themes of education, awareness and intervention. This is referred to as the “Five Factor Model” to diagnose the presence or absence of Parental Alienation (Bernet & Lorandos, 2019) which guides appropriate intervention protocols.
