It is only through their concerted efforts and awareness that changes can be generated to spur improvements in family law, mental health, and social service programs to meet the needs of these vulnerable families. Parental Alienation creates immense suffering for the rejected parent as well as all the children and must be stopped.
Conferences such as this one represent an important step in that direction.’ Amy J. L. Baker, Ph.D. Amy J.L.
