Almost thirty years ago, Richard Gardner first used the term "Parental Alienation Syndrome" (PAS) to describe a psychopathological disorder that is configured as an emotional abuse that involve children, and that primarily occurs in the context of child-custody disputes. This paper aims to provide a reflection on Parental Alienation Syndrome and, although it recognizes its importance and relevance as a clinical entity, it expresses doubts about its existence as a specific psychopathological organization.
Keywords: Parental Alienation Syndrome, parenting, co-parenting, emotional abuse, link.
