Parental Alienation and Factitious Disorder by Proxy Beyond DSM-5: Interrelated Multidimensional Diagnoses by Michael R. Bütz, Ph.D. available through Routledge Publishing.
For over forty years, Munchhausen's Syndrome by Proxy, Factitious Disorder by Proxy and Parental Alienation have been debated in courtrooms, healthcare facilities and in the literature.
The development of the term Interrelated Multidimensional Diagnoses was intended to clarify how to measure and study these pathological dynamics that adversely impact children and their families.
With this multidimensional approach to these pathological dynamics, the focus has been to supply a basis for clear and fair intervention that ensures the child's best interests as well as their health and welfare.
