To propose that the National Assembly for Wales:
1. Recognises 'Parental Alienation' as emotional abuse of children, as defined by the Ministry of Justice in a response to a petition to introduce a law that recognises Parental Alienation as a criminal offence.
2. Calls on the Welsh Government to:
a) commission and fund mandatory training for professionals - including, but not limited to, social work and Cafcass Cymru staff - in order to recognise Parental Alienation, including pathways to protect children from harm;
b) plan a national campaign to inform children and families about Parental Alienation and the harm that it causes, with a view to implementation when funds allow; and
c) place a duty on Welsh Ministers to act to protect children from abuse and harm where Parental Alienation has been identified.
