Long term effects of parental alienation

The long-term effects of parental alienation can be devastating for both the alienated parent and the child. The child may suffer from depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, difficulty forming relationships, and difficulty trusting others.

The alienated parent may experience feelings of guilt, anger, and grief, as well as a sense of helplessness and loss. In extreme cases, the child may develop a distorted view of the alienated parent, believing them to be dangerous or unworthy of love.

Yes, a child can recover from the long-term effects of parental alienation. It is important to seek professional help from a mental health professional who specializes in parental alienation. With the right support, a child can learn to rebuild trust and develop healthy relationships with both parents.
