Gardner defines Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS) as follows: "PAS is a disorder that arises primarily 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 indoctrination 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 the parental-alienation-syndrome explanation for the child's hostility is not applicable" Dr. Gardner, a professor and psychiatrist at Columbia University, first introduced the term Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS) in 1985. Included in his prolific writing of over 40 books are three books on PAS: The Parental Alienation Syndrome and the Differentiation Between Fabricated and Genuine Child Sex Abuse (1987), The Parental Alienation Syndrome:A Guide (1998), and The Parental Alienation Syndrome, Second Edition (1992). Importantly, Gardner first established the behavioral and psychological criteria for PAS before presenting suggestions for treatment. The books named above give clear descriptors of how to identify the syndrome. But the establishment of the syndrome has not been without controversy. Academic discussions with regard to PAS's rightful place in the nomenclature of DSM-IV have not come to any final conclusion. This is to be expected; the scientific and political machine that determines such matters is predictably slow and ponderous. In my view a slow tempo with which the professional community accepts any new syndrome is a healthy pace to ponder the evidence. Such delays augment the quality of the baseline data and research. However, for the parents and children who are directly affected by PAS, the recognition of the syndrome by judges and mental health professionals cannot be fast enough.
