MIAMI, Feb. 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Parental Alienation Awareness Organization (PAAO) is beginning the New Year by launching its campaign to organize events for April 25th - Parental Alienation Awareness Day.
Because most people do not know about Parental Alienation until they experience it, parental alienation awareness was put forth to help raise awareness and education about this growing problem.

Most mental health professionals agree that this is a form of emotional abuse.
One of PAAO's activities involves requesting our state governors to issue proclamations declaring April 25th, as Parental Alienation Awareness Day. We are pleased that the states of Florida, Indiana, Connecticut, Montana, Kentucky, Iowa, Maine, Nevada, and Nebraska have issued either proclamations or recognitions of that date.

PAAO is planning a 24-hour webinar on April 25th, with well recognized experts on Parental Alienation, as well as coordinating events in many areas both nationally and internationally.
"We are looking to make Parental Alienation part of the public
vocabulary. Its behaviors and effects must be understood so that we can
