Editorial Reviews

Fathermag.com
“As a parent who has been there...gained from this book the resolve to try again, no matter how painful.”
S. Richard Sauber
“Dr. Baker . . . has put PAS
on the map as a significant form of emotional abuse afflicting adults long after they leave their childhood years behind. This is a book worth reading, assigning to students,
and keeping as a reference.”
Jayne A. Major
“[W]ill become a classic . . . . it is a milestone in the field.”
Margarethe S. Smith
“It should be mandatory reading for any custody evaluator or attorney involved in high conflict divorces where parental alienation is present.”

    Must Read

    If you are going through divorce, or know of someone who is , and you see some of these happenings going on, this is a must read. For some it may make things not seem so bad for me it gave this whole mess a name, instead of crazy. It gave me great insight to what was happening in my ex's head, but most importantly it showed me how my child had to deal with this. Great book!
