Dr. Amy Baker, PhD. author, researcher, and court expert joins us today to talk about parental alienation. There is nothing more hurtful than a parent turning their child against the other parent. This can go on for years when children are forced to align with one parent, and are subjected to endless smear campaigns about the other parent. Dr. Baker discusses why parents do this, the likelihood of a parent who engages in this behavior having a personality disorder, and the consequences of the parents behavior on their child long-term.
