Research into the Lived Experience of Parental Alienation in a Social Context

If you identify as a targeted, rejected or alienated parent, you may be interested in participating in this research. For more information please visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Social_Research_PA.

Parental alienation has been studied for more than 30 years mainly by psychologists and psychiatrists and its pathologies are well understood. However, until now there has been little social science research into the social experience of parental alienation.

The phenomenon of parental alienation is considered to be a growing and poorly understood social presentation, in contrast to issues such as family violence. As a consequence, it is suggested that family members involved in contexts of parental alienation have particular social experiences that may reveal to society the nature of the social adversity parental alienation causes and create a new way for society to understand this phenomenon.

It is time to develop a social discourse about parental alienation and to address the manner in which society and its structures enable alienation and the attendant injustices and oppression caused by parental alienation. The social and cultural dimensions of parental alienation need to be defined in which parental alienation exhibits its own unique phenomenology alongside its medical pathology.

Ethics approval has now been obtained from the University of the Sunshine Coast to undertake research in partial fulfillment of the requirements of a social science Ph.D. into the social impact and social experience of parental alienation.
