Academic: Disputed theory used in child custody cases violates child protection law

A university academic is taking child protection authorities to task for using the controversial concept of parental alienation to place children in care. Tampere University Social Work Lecturer Anna Metteri says that the theory requires officials to ignore children’s views in custody cases, because they are assumed to be manipulated by one parent. Metteri says that approach clashes with child welfare laws, which call on officials to listen to children. Yle News spoke with one mother affected by the conflict between an unproven theory and established legislation.
