Mental health professionals may be involved in assessing the situation and providing recommendations to the court in cases where parental alienation is an issue.
They may also work with the child and the parents to address any emotional or psychological issues that may be contributing to the alienation.
Therapy can be an effective tool in addressing parental alienation, as it can provide a safe and neutral space for family members to discuss their feelings and work towards improving their relationships.
Individual therapy for the child and/or the alienating parent may also be necessary in order to address underlying issues that are contributing to the alienation.
It is important for mental health professionals to be trained and experienced in working with issues related to parental alienation in order to effectively support individuals and families affected by this issue.
