Ellis v. Ellis:

Alienating Parent: ♀

“Dr. Joe Morris, who after assessing the child concluded that she suffered from depression and recommended she attend counseling. He said the depression was not created by the visitations with her father, but arose from the conflicts between the parents and the lack of access she had with her father. He also stated that in his opinion the child suffers from parental alienation syndrome. . . . He . . . based his opinion upon John’s reports that the child shows a disregard for John while in the presence of her mother. He also stated that the child’s drawings of her family in which she excludes her father from the picture is a classic sign of the syndrome.”
