      Hi Doctor,

      Please guide me about PAS effect on children. Also please guide for the required steps to be taken medically to resolve it.
      I’m asking, so I can make the judge understand this problem, and I will personally need this knowledge when I meet my son, since he has not been, spoken, or seen me in last 2 years.

      The Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS) refers to a set of symptoms manifested by the child during and after the process of parents divorcing. The syndrome demonstrates the family suffering and the psychic blows suffered by the child when entangled in feelings of revenge, hatred and rejection. The child is disrespected and used as a tool to punish and cause pain in the alienated parent. As in Medea’s myth in which a mother kills her children, in parental alienation, the alienating parents suffocate and kill their children’s ability to perceive, feel, and judge freely. The children become an extension of the alienator, prevented from thinking, discriminate and choose for themselves. Parental alienation causes severe adverse effects on the psychological development of the child.

      Medically speaking, the child may first be assessed psychologically and then go through a psychologist for appropriate therapy. From the perspective of a parent visiting the child for the first time, it might be advisable to make the child comfortable and relaxed. Sudden shower of too much attention might disturb the child emotionally. Immediately after your visit, please consult a child counselor for more personal touch. Please remember every child is different, and so are the circumstances. You will always be looked at as a pillar of strength by your child, irrespective of when and where he/ she meets you. Hope this helps!
