PAS as a Religion - Parental Alienation Syndrome


PAS as a Religious CultPerhaps we have been unfair to those who support Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS). We keep citing research and information that discredits PAS, but they ignore scientific research and continue in their beliefs. And that is what we have missed.
