PsyCare is interested in hearing from you.
If you had an opportunity to review the other pages on PAS, you will have read my premise that severe alienation is frequently incurable. If you had been a victim of severe alienation and had the experience of your child hating you because of alienation but now have a loving relationship, we would like to hear your story about how this change occurred. Perhaps we could share your story and offer other parents some insight about what worked for you. We would protect your confidentiality and not publish anything without your written permission.
We would also like your comments about our articles on PAS. If you want to elaborate on a point or offer a different perspective, let us know. Because of the large volume of e-mails we receive, we may not always be able to respond with much depth. We do make note of your comments, however.
If you have questions about PAS, we will try to answer them, realizing that our forum has limited space. Keep in mind that we cannot offer you a consultation or recommendations about your case through e-mail. Most cases are too complicated for simple answers.
We would like your suggestions on future PAS topics, and
comments about books or articles that you have read on parental alienation, visitation, "deadbeat parents," reunification, custody, etc. If you have written a book, research paper, or an article, mail it to us and we will publish a summary for our readers. We plan on offer summaries and research findings on this site.
