I understand the concept and have seen the devastating effects of this form of child abuse. However, today in the Michigan House of Representatives committee on Family, children, and Seniors I heard insistent objection to the validity of Parental Alienation with Minoriy Vice chair Marcia-Hovey-Wright as well as a speaker for the Michigan Coalition to end Domestic and sexual violence persistent ly adamant that this is "junk science". How do we address this problem when we are met with such denial?
