DR. RICHARD GARDNER, AUTHOR OF "PARENTAL ALIENATION SYNDROME" DIES
Dr. Richard Gardner, who died suddenly on May 25th, 2003, gave science to the anecdotes of alienation. As a result he has left with this world thousands of children who are more balanced and healthier than they would be without him. He has left with us thousands of children who know their father and therefore know the half of themselves that is their dad. Without Dr. Gardner, most of these children would not believe they have a dad worth knowing.
Because he loved children, and not either fathers or mothers, Richard Gardner was pro-active in his encouragement of his work to be used by mothers whose children had been alienated from them by their fathers.The impact of Richard Gardner's life will not just inhabit these children's lives, but also the lives of their children, and their children's children. Thank you Dr. Gardner. I am filled with tears at your loss.
