Morris’s research shows that maternal alienation is used as a strategy of abuse across a continuum of violence and abuse, which includes child sexual abuse, and domestic violence. It is a form of emotional and psychological abuse that is used in conjunction with coercive control and other types of abuse to maintain power over women and children.
