I have 2 children and am going through a divorce.   My kids show signs of alienation toward me and disfavor.  

My wife no doubt has psychopathology issues.  

for my own knowledge, what personality disorder / or mental illness is usually behind parental alienation in a spouse?    we are going to get evaluated soon.

PAS is a behavior, not a diagnosis.  This is more than semantics as the behavior is what you address, both in your court filings and in your guidance to your kids.

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) often generates behaviors such as PAS, but no specific disorder is a guarantee of PAS.

the most commonly linked with pas is boaderline personality disorder but I have also seen mention of bipolar. Think is some otherwise "normal" people have been known to alienate thier kids from the other parent so even if the psych eval comes back normal doesn't mean isn't doing it nor does it mean she is.

I would also look under NPD.

Narcissistic personality disorder (NPD), is a personality disorder that usually thinks they are superior and better then the other parent. Thier home is better, job, environment, parenting, food, clothes, etc.
