Abstract

The authors characterizes the phenomenon of Parental Alienation Syndrome introduced by Gardner in 1985 and described since then by many authors and researchers specially those involved in forensic psychiatry. Gardner’s conception evoked equally huge interest and critique in medical and legal circles. The positive value of it is driving clinician’s attention to problems of those, who are most fragile in divorce battles - children complicated in the loyalty conflict. Authors attempt is to give the most complete though brief description of the idea of Parental Alienation Syndrome, supplied by some results of later research on that subject, including analysis of the personality of alienating parents and the long - term effects on the child.
