If I Were to Speak to the Court-Ordered Psychologist

If I were to speak to the court-ordered psychologist who has witnessed the interactions between the alienating parent, the alienated parent, and the child, I would ask the following questions to draw a conclusion regarding parental alienation:

Observation of Interactions: Can you describe the specific behaviors and dynamics that you observed during the interactions between the alienating parent and the child? Did you notice any signs of rejection, hostility, fear, or anxiety displayed by the child towards the alienated parent?

Parental Influence: Did you observe any instances where the alienating parent attempted to influence or manipulate the child's perception of the alienated parent? Were there any signs of coaching, rehearsed statements, or repeated negative messaging about the alienated parent from the child?

Emotional Connection: Did you notice any lack of empathy, guilt, or emotional connection displayed by the child towards the alienated parent? Did the child demonstrate a disregard for the alienated parent's feelings or well-being?

Alignment with Alienating Parent: Did you observe the child excessively aligning themselves with the alienating parent's perspective, opinions, or behaviors? Did they adopt an adversarial stance towards the alienated parent, echoing the negative sentiments expressed by the alienating parent?

Impact on the Child: In your professional opinion, what is the potential impact of these observed behaviors and interactions on the long-term well-being and psychological development of the child? Do you believe there is a risk of long-lasting harm from parental alienation?

Recommendations: Based on your observations and assessment, what recommendations do you have for addressing and mitigating the effects of parental alienation? What interventions or therapeutic approaches do you believe would be beneficial for the child and the family?

By asking these questions, I aim to gather the psychologist's professional observations and opinions to help me draw a comprehensive conclusion regarding the presence or absence of parental alienation in the case.
