Psychology board suspends Randi Erickson relative to complaint involving “Parental Alienation Syndrome”

Filed under: Uncategorized — Psych Crime Reporter @ 2:03 pm

On February 6, 2013, the Wisconsin Psychology Examining Board suspended psychologist Randi Erickson indefinitely.

According to the Board’s document, Erickson was notified on November 1, 2011 that she was the subject of a complaint. The Board requested her response to the complaint and a certified copy of her records of her treatment of “Patient A.”

She was given three weeks to respond. The Board made three such requests but received neither a substantive response from Erickson nor the requested records.

Though the Board’s documents don’t state outright what the nature of the complaint against her was, it does states that Erickson filed a letter with the Administrative Law Judge in the case, which contained, among other thing “a lengthy article on parental alienation syndrome, with which Dr. Erickson apparently believes Patient A’s other, the complainant in this case, is afflicted.” Dr. Erickson failed to appear at the scheduled hearing in this case.



  1. She deserves to have her license permanently suspended. She has defrauded so many people and has numerous complaints with the WI Department of Regulations and Licensing (now called the Department of Safety and Professional Services). Her “parent alienation” reports is just like a book except she only changes the names of the parties involved. I have proof of that already.
    If the State did their job in the first place of removing her license, there would of been less harm to children and families. I believe in KARMA!

  2. This woman has done so much damage to families; her license suspension was long overdue. The judicial system should also learn from their grave errors and beware of being drawn to such charlatans with simplistic and malevolent supposed-solutions to complex family problems. Divorce and custody concerns often stem from deeper issues, and the children’s–and the parents’–physical and emotional safety should be paramount, rather than deliberately, pointedly, neglected. Her tactics are not based on current practice evidence for supporting child and family mental health. This suspension came too late for many children and families who will never recover from the damage.
