Research shows that standard and generic treatment approaches, including generic family therapy, are exceptionally unlikely to succeed in cases of parental alienation. Not only that, there are no reasonable circumstances in which such treatments should be taken. This is an amazingly strong statement, but one backed up by numerous, extensive peer-reviewed studies. It is important to recognize that it is easily possible to spend thousands of dollars, to the point of bankruptcy, on ineffective treatment.
It is an unfortunate fact that, at present, professionals who are responsible for child custody evaluations, mediators, and other mental health specialists associated with the family court system generally lack in-depth training and expertise in the field of parental alienation. This is a highly specialized subcategory of specialization that requires exceptional skill and years of experience to assess and treat. At present, there is no credentialing body to provide specific criteria to help parents identify experts trained in the subspecialty of parental alienation because it is still an emerging field.
