The psychological effects of parental alienation on children can be long-lasting and can impact their mental and emotional well-being.
Children who have experienced parental alienation may have difficulty forming and maintaining relationships, may struggle with trust and attachment issues, and may have low self-esteem.
They may also be at increased risk for developing mental health problems, such as depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
It is important for parents and children who have been impacted by parental alienation to seek support and professional help in order to address the issues and work towards rebuilding their relationships.
Therapy can be an effective tool in addressing the emotional impact of parental alienation and helping children cope with the associated emotions.
