ALL FORMS OF PSYCHOLOGICAL AND EMOTIONAL ABUSE MUST BE CRIMINALIZED IN U.S. AS THEY ARE IN EUROPEAN COUNTRIES OF FRANCE, U.K., IRELAND, SCOTLAND, AND SOON TO BE WALES.  WE WANT 100,000 SIGNATURES.

PARENTAL ALIENATION HAS BEEN CRIMINALIZED IN MEXICO AND BRAZIL 

PARENTAL ALIENATION IS HORRIFIC EMOTIONAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL CHILD ABUSE AND IT IS TERRORISTIC EMOTIONAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL ABUSE OF THE TARGETED PARENT.

THE U.S. NEEDS TO STOP TURNING A BLIND EYE TO PARENTAL ALIENATION AND ALL FORMS OF EMOTIONAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL ABUSE.

THE BELOW LINKS EXPLAIN CLEARLY EXACTLY WHAT PARENTAL ALIENATION IS AND HAVOC IT CAUSES ON THE CHILDREN WHO ARE USED AS PAWNS BY THE ALIENATING PARENT WHO COERCIVELY MIND MANIPULATES THEM TO TURN AGAINST A NURTURING, LOVING PARENT FOR THE NARCISSIST'S SADISTIC PLEASURE IN TORTURING THE TARGETED NURTURING PARENT.  WE NEED 100,000 SIGNATURES.

Parental Alienation is something so unbelievably horrible, it is stranger than fiction.  Only those that have gone through or are going through this terror realize the impact on their lives and lifelong destruction Parental Alienation causes to the children and the targeted parent.  Generally, this happens during the divorce proceedings. However, there are those that have endured this type of abuse while the marriage was still intact and then the abuse would escalate once the targeted parent announced that they have had enough and want out of the marriage. That is when a full assault with no mercy is deployed on the targeted parent. Can anyone even imagine their loved and loving child/children turning on you with hate, anger, and rage, and untrue accusations which they have been mind controlled to believe?  This is terroristic abuse against the nurturing parent who feels helpless to saved his/her abused mind manipulated child.  

Please sign this Petition so the  American Psychological Association and Congress will do the right thing and recognize this type of abuse for what it is. This type of abuse is real and it needs to be addressed and criminalized.  All forms of emotional and psychological abuse need to be criminalized as in European countries which have recognized the seriousness of psychological abuse by passing laws to criminalize it. In 2010, France became the first country to ban “psychological violence within marriage.” The United Kingdom passed The Serious Crime Act 2015 that makes it an offense to use controlling or coercive behavior in intimate or familial relationships. The UK’s new law recognized a gap in the existing law and now includes patterns of coercive control by an intimate partner while still living together that can carry a maximum sentence of five years of imprisonment or a fine, or both. On January 2, 2019, Ireland criminalized psychological and emotional abuse. Mexico and Brazil have criminalized Parental Alienation. The United States needs to do the same. The APA and U. S. Lawmakers cannot continue to turn a blind eye to Parental Alienation and all emotional and psychological abuse and the lifelong harm it causes. The failure of the APA and U.S. Lawmakers to act on changing the current situation can no longer be tolerated.
