The dramatic increase in the number of child-custody disputes since the 1970's has created an equally dramatic need for a standard reference work that examines the growing social problem of children who develop an irrational hatred for a parent as the result of divorce. The International Handbook of Parental Alienation Syndrome features clinical, legal and research perspectives from thirty-two contributors representing views across eight countries, building on the work of the late Dr. Richard Gardener, a pioneer in the theory, practice, diagnosis and treatment of Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS). This unique title addresses the effects of PAS on parents and children, discusses issues surrounding reconciliation between parent and alicnated child and includes material published for the first time on incidence, gender and false allegations of abuse in PAS.
