I think it takes some time- and a lot of case law...but widely held world views on health do tend to make it to the courts eventually (except, apparently, for vaccines- but that case is just WTF!?!??). In the case of domestic violence and its impact on children- the studies are making it into some case law these days. Unfortunately- not enough- but it's getting there.

Again though- I think there needs to be a move away from the principle of 'maximum contact' as being the primary principle- and a look towards the best interest of the kids. I think in many cases of parental alienation- the risk to the child is great enough that it probably should warrant reduction in the parenting time for the offending parent. Like you said- it's a lot harder to fix it once it's started.

My partners lawyer explained it this way. Because there is no set standard a d it is he said/she said, judges are hesitant to acknowledge alienation unless the case is severe. With a set of standards plus training for judges and lawyers, things will be viewed differently. Therapists and other psychological experts will contribute to the training and information. They may even introduce new regulations for different cases. For instance mandatory training for parents or mandatory therapy for families. This is a major shift for the legal community and will have impacts on the medical community too!
