The purpose of this training session is to help attorneys better understand the patterns and complexities of cases involving resist/refuse (RR) dynamics and parental alienating behaviors (PABs). This one-hour will cover various approaches to assessing the severity of the resistance, why resistance builds, and why it can be so intractable. Specific risk factors for resist/refuse dynamics will be covered so that attorneys can better identify the likelihood of resistance and PABs in their clients.
