Acting Before it’s Too Late: Prudent Early Intervention in Resist-Refuse Cases
Resist-Refuse cases can quickly lead to entrenched dysfunctional behavior and severe impairment of children’s ability to function. Assessment is important for assisting families, but can come to so dominate the process that the situation is unrecoverable once meaningful services begin. The presenters will describe common obstacles to early intervention in resist-refuse cases, the persistence of inaccurate beliefs and information, and practices that undermine accountability. Practical strategies, including a broader conceptual model, integrating assessment into intervention, effective assistance from the court, and professional development will be addressed. The speakers will also discuss methods for adapting to crises without sacrificing relationships.
