In divorce litigation, family law professionals can play a crucial role in supporting children's healthy emotional and psychological development following the break-up of the intact family structure, and in helping the family transition into a new separated family structure. Children love their parents, both parents, and all children want the love of both parents in return. However, in the context of high inter-spousal conflict children are often compelled by the pathology of a narcissistic parent to choose sides in the spousal conflict against the other parent.In these circumstances of high-conflict divorce, minor's counsel, guardians ad litem, and family law judiciary become crucial to helping resolve the child's triangulation into the spousal conflict and restoring the child's healthy developmental trajectory. Recognizing and helping to resolve the influence of the narcissistic parent's pathology on the child is crucial to the role of the legal professional in supporting the family's successful transition to a new post-divorce separated-family structure of independent families and shared co-parenting.In The Narcissistic Parent, Dr. Childress provides a brief primer on the features of the narcissistic personality parent that impact the role of legal professionals working with children and families surrounding divorce and child custody issues.

Assessing the cause of parent-child conflict following divorce can be a complex undertaking, especially in the context of allegations that one parent is exercising negative parental influence on the child that undermines the child's relationship with the other parent. While securing testimony or conducting an extensive child custody evaluation are ways to assess the possible causes of parent-child conflict and allegations of negative parental influence, a more scientifically-based approach offers an alternative solution. Single-case research designs are an established scientific methodology for determining causality as well as treatment efficacy. A Single-Case Assessment and Remedy protocol offers the Court an empirically based approach for systematically collecting the information on child and family relationships that is needed to address the custody decisions before the Court.
