Petition To The UN: In The Interests' Of Children: www.un1503petition.com NEWS BULLETIN Inbox
Dear Friends, on behalf of the “In The Interests' Of Children” tm Campaign Team (http://www.un1503petition.com ), we bring you this short news bulletin:-
International Parental Alienation Awareness Day Wed 25th-April-2007
Today Wed-25th-April-2007 marks International Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS) Awareness Day. Although many of you may be familiar with PAS, there are still many others who are not aware of its existence and the impact it has on our children’s lives until it hits you.
PAS id defined by its founder Dr Richard A Gardner (1985) http://www.rgardner.com/refs/ as:-
“The parental alienation syndrome (PAS) is a childhood disorder that arises almost exclusively in the context of child-custody disputes. Its primary manifestation is the child’s campaign of denigration against a parent, a campaign that has no justification. It results from the combination of a programming (brainwashing) parent’s indoctrinations and the child’s own contributions to the vilification of the target parent. When true parental abuse and/or neglect is present, the child’s animosity may be justified and so the parental alienation syndrome explanation for the child’s hostility is not applicable.”
The UN1503 campaign clearly recognises PAS, PAS is real, it exists, but sadly many of the often ulterior motivated Govts and often State authorities do not want to acknowledge the existence of PAS and/or its impact to our children. Most Governments’ stance can be summed up by the following quote:
'the professionals involved were ready to accept the excuses of the primary carer and abuser' - and - 'too often it seemed that too much time was spent deferring to the needs of the resident parent and not enough time spent on protecting vulnerable and defenceless children'.
You can learn more about PAS and counteracting the effects PAS (see ref Dr Lowenstein, New PAS Publication) by visiting the links on the campaign website.
