MATOS, Marilia Neri et al. Dialogue on Joint Custody and Parental Alienation: Legal and Psychological Perspectives in a Project of Academic Extension. Psicol. Ensino & Form. [online]. 2017, vol.8, n.1, pp. 48-57. ISSN 2177-2061.

This paper is the experience report of an extension program that students from the majors of Psychology and Law at the Lutheran Institute of Higher Learning ULBRA carried out in six state public schools in Porto Velho, Rondonia, Brazil. The project aimed at organizing groups for meetings and lectures involving parents, students and teachers in order to create awareness and to reflect upon the concepts of joint custody in its positive effects for children and of parental alienation highlighting its negative effects. 417 people were involved in this project, mostly students from high school. The project is supported by legal and psychology academic literature and it intends to debate the main characteristics and effects that influence the people involved. The results reported here point out to the unawareness of people in general and the interest for knowing more on joint custody and parental alienation.

Keywords : joint custody; parental alienation; public schools.
