(NaturalNews) In a stunning display of ignorance, researchers attempt to create a mental diagnosis that can be applied to entire families at once.

"Parental alienation disorder"
was denied acceptance into the psychiatric bible, the DSM-5 in spite of "intense lobbying" by supporters. This unofficial yet bold new disorder occurs to more than one person at a time.

I guess if you are trying to label as many people mentally ill as possible, you may as well begin slapping diagnoses on groups.

Parental alienation disorder supposedly happens when parents engage in the common but unfortunate attempt to alienate children from each other. For example, a mother may complain to her son that his father is a flake or a loser or a liar. The father may do the same in return as both parents attempt to win the approval of the child.

This dynamic is not unusual in families. If something similar is going on in your family, you should take measures to correct it.

This is a communication issue, however, not a mental illness. This pattern that occurs within a family system involves resentment, immaturity, shortsightedness and even ignorance. It is an unfortunate practice, though, not a single mental illness for a group of people.

However, if you want an expressway to "medicalize" several people at once, Parental Alienation Disorder may be the ticket.

In fact, some individuals could conceivably receive a diagnosis without even stepping foot into a mental health worker's office! Sound appealing? If so, support the American Psychiatric Association and pharmaceutical companies in their takeover of mental health.

The trend in the industry, worldwide, is to expand the market for pharmaceuticals. By increasing the number and breadth possible medical diagnoses, more and more people have become mentally ill. More mentally ill people means more business for big pharma and psychiatrists.

Parental Alienation Disorder - the attempt to expand beyond the typical single person diagnosis - was a step too far for the DSM-5. The board must have known how much heat they would take if they allowed it. We should be alarmed, however, that it was even considered.
