Using Survey Data to Profile Extreme Views of Resist and Refusal Dynamics

The presence of Resist and Refusal Dynamics (RRD) remains hotly debated.  AFCC, NCJFCJ and the University of Toronto teamed up to explore this important issue by administering a survey to family law professionals. Based on 1,049 respondents, this webinar will highlight the views and attitudes in the field. While there is considerable consistency across views, findings reveal certain profiles of extreme views, clustered around issues of cause(s), etiology, the role of intimate partner violence, and treatment considerations.  The purpose of the webinar is to showcase concordance in the field, while highlighting the typologies of extreme positions that can intensify and polarize binary and simplified thinking.
