Most parental alienation scholars and also alienated parents
and grandparents would like to see parental alienation included
in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 
(DSM).  The time has come to make that happen.  In July 2022,
a proposal was launched for parental alienation relational
problem to be added to one of the chapters in DSM-5-TR.  The
ultimate purpose for this proposal is for parental alienation
theory to be explained and discussed in training programs for
psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists, and lawyers. 

In our webinar on November 6, 2022, from 8-10 PM EST,
Dr. William Bernet will give an update regarding this important
project.  He will explain the criteria for adding a new relational
problem to the DSM.  And he will show that parental alienation
theory easily meets these criteria, especially after the
publication of additional research in recent years.  Also,
Dr. Bernet will explain how participants in Family Access can
help accomplish this goal, that is, by endorsing the proposal
that will be submitted soon to DSM-5-TR personnel. Let’s try to
make history together!

Each participant may submit a question for Dr. Bernet in
relation to the subject. of his presentation.
Your question may consist of 2-3 regular sentences. Your

question must be submitted no later than Tuesday,
November 1, 2022. Please email your question to familyaccessinnc@aol.com.
