Parental Alienation: early treatment needed, diagnosis counterproductive?

Lawyer, social worker, trainer and author Bill Eddy, a hero to some members of my collaborative divorce practice group, recognizes parental alienation but says it shouldn't be a psychological diagnosis, because slapping the "alienator" and "alienated" label on family members will just reinforce the blame game of child custody fights and will make it harder to actually work on changing such behavior. He says much can and must be done to work with parents and children to stop and prevent alienation behaviors as early as possible, before anyone is condenmed with a diagnosis. Agree or disagree with him, his posting offers many wise insights into what actually happens in cases of parental alienation.
