Parental Alienation Syndrome on the move

Radio National show Life Matters, has conducted a background briefing on Parental Alienation Syndrome:

“Parental Alienation Syndrome, also called PAS, is the theory that in a relationship breakdown where there are children, if one of the parents accuses the other of sexually abusing a child, then it’s possible that the parent making the allegation has become obsessional, and developed a psychological condition which is dangerous to the child.
PAS, began in America, had a real impact in the courts there for many years, but now has been completely discredited.
Background Briefing has found that many child welfare professionals here believe PAS is filtering through some Family Court deliberations in Australia.”
