What to look for on Smart Talk Friday, April 22, 2016:

Smart Talk has had conversations with the Democrats running for the U.S. Senate this week ahead of next Tuesday's primary election.

Friday, John Fetterman joins us to discuss his views on the issues and why he feels he is the best candidate to face Republican incumbent U.S. Senator Pat Toomey in November.

Fetterman is a supporter of presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders and has many of the same opinions.

Also, April 25 is National Parental Alienation Awareness Day.

Parental alienation occurs when one parent or family member manipulates a child into disliking their other parent or family members. Some say it is psychological abuse that permanently affects the child and the rejected family member. In fact, there are those in the mental health community that call it Parent Al;ienation Syndrome.  However, despite support from many mental health professionals, both the American Psychiatric Association and the American Psychological Association have rejected parental alienation syndrome.

It's the topic of Friday's Smart Talk.

Appearing on the program are Dr. Craig Childress, a psychologist who is considered one the nation's experts of parent alienation, Pam Moran, a Cumberland County social worker and psychotherapist and Suzanne Spencer, an active member of the Pennsylvania Chapter of the Parental Alienation Awareness Organization who was exposed to alienating behaviors as a child, parent and grandparent.
