PARENTAL ALIENATION RESEARCH: ACCEPTED IN OVER 1180 TRIAL AND APPELLATE COURTS BETWEEN 1985-2018. In the last two decades some social scientists and legal professionals have questioned the legitimacy of parental alienation as a concept and its admissibility in child abuse and child custody litigation. This study was designed to examine the extent to which courts in the United States have found the concept of parental alienation material, probative, relevant and admissible.
CONTRARY TO THOSE WHO PROMOTE "VIOLATIONS OF SCIENTIFIC INTEGRITY" (see article below on Statement of Global Action on Research Integrity) AND THE UNSUSPECTING PUBLIC WHO FOLLOW THEM, PARENTAL ALIENATION RESEARCH IS VALID, RELIABLE, AND 'GENERALLY ACCEPTED' BY THE SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY.
SEVERAL STUDIES REGARDING RESEARCH INTEGRITY FOUND A NUMBER OF PUBLICATIONS WITH INTENTIONAL FALSIFICATION AND DEFAMATION INVOLVING PARENTAL ALIENATION RESEARCH.
FALSEHOODS HAVE BEEN PUBLISHED IN PROFESSIONAL JOURNALS, PRESENTED AT CONFERENCES, AND DISTRIBUTED THROUGHOUT INTERNET SITES AND WEBSITE BLOGS. ONE SUCH PUBLICATIONS IS THE DISCREDITED JOAN MERCER BOOK ON PA. YET, SOME INTENTIONALLY OR UNINTENTIONALLY PROMOTE MISINFORMATION AS "PA has been debunked and rejected by major publications." NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH.
PARENTAL ALIENATION IS RECOGNIZED BY AMERICAN PSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATION, WILEY ENCYCLOPEDIA OF FORENSIC PSYCHIATRY, THE JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OF THE PSYCHIATRY AND THE LAW, AND MORE.
NINETY-FOUR EXAMPLES OF THE SAME MISINFORMATION WERE IDENTIFIED AND SUBJECTED TO CITATION ANALYSIS USING GEPHI SOFTWARE, WHICH DISPLAYS THE LINKS BETWEEN CITING MATERIAL AND CITED MATERIAL. THE RECURRENT MISINFORMATION REPORTED HERE IS NOT TRIVIAL; THESE STATEMENTS ARE SIGNIFICANT MISREPRESENTATIONS OF PA THEORY.
