13 Empirical Studies of Alienation Michael Saini , Janet R. Johnston , Barbara Jo Fidler , and Nicholas Bala Key Points • The lack of consensus on the definitions of alienation and the use of varying nonstandardized measures and procedures limit the ability of researchers to undertake methodologically sound research in this area. • Studies of alienation have generally used small, nonrandom samples with no comparison group; there is a need for large-scale empirical studies to inform the field. • Many of the studies employ cross-sectional or retrospective research designs to test simple

16 Concluding Thoughts and Future Directions Lyn R. Greenberg , Barbara J. Fidler , Michael A. Saini , Hon. Robert Schnider (Ret.) , and Ashley-Lauren Reyes From the editors’ perspective, the process for completing this book has been both trying and exhilarating.

8 Early Intervention with Resistance/Refusal Dynamics and Hybrid Cases Lyn R. Greenberg , Hon. Robert Schnider (Ret.) , and Julie Jackson Children often need help before their parents are ready to stop fighting. Children at the center of high conflict disputes face extraordinary risks of maladjustment. Families in which parent–child relationships are disrupted, or a child appears to resist contact with a parent, present particular challenges and risks ( while therapeutic assessment is essential in all treatment, it is neither necessary nor helpful to withhold all assistance to families while parents litigate (sometimes for years) their

1 Shifting Our Perspective Focusing on Coping and Adjustment Lyn R. Greenberg Families involved in child custody or child protection (juvenile dependency) proceedings face a number of challenges, as do the professionals who provide services to them. In these cases, attempts to help a child and family occur against a backdrop of disputes about the origin of a child’s or family’s problems or historical events, as well as legal proceedings that may slow or compromise interventions. It is not difficult to find professionals who believe that the system is not working well or that families are not receiving the
