The hypocrisy beggars belief. The charade fools many, most importantly for the alienating parent, it fools the child. I was just writing to someone on another comment about enmeshment. Even therapists, not truly understanding the covert and cunning nature of parental alienation, might think enmeshment means to be ‘joined at the hip’. This does happen of course. But enmeshment is also emotional and psychological. It gets into the thoughts and becomes the beliefs of the child. Even when the child becomes a teenager and an adult, it can still hold them. Unseen to the outside world. They may live independently and voice opinions that are negative about both their parents, target parent and alienating parent. And the therapist will say there’s no enmeshment therefore no parental alienation. It is also very hard for people to see beyond what they see. Perception is not reality, but it is a lens through which someone sees things, and I’ve covered this in other posts. For example, just because the child says they’re autonomous, their thoughts and beliefs and opinions are all their own, doesn’t make it a reality. Perception and reality can be quite different. And enmeshment might look like love. Lastly, people just can’t believe an apparently loving parent would ever do something as harmful as alienating their child from their other parent, which is as we know, unloving behaviour.
