    "I'm proud of the fact that our conference is being lauded for its
ability to educate professionals on the topic of Parental Alienation. Parental
Alienation Syndrome is what happens when a parent uses alienating behavior to

symposium. "This conference is an opportunity for parents and professionals to
acquire intervention and treatment solutions and to help modify the way the
courts protect the best interest of children."
