A rigorous screening and assessment process/tool pre-FDR would identify the the presence of this. At FRC Logan the assessment would be followed by a follow up assessment including questions specifically designed to enable the FDRP to further assess the intentions of a client who has presented as using coercion, high acrimony and behaviours characterised as power and control. Should such a person show no-insight or acknowledgement of such harmful behaviour the FDR is unlikely to go ahead and appropriate warm referral handovers as indicted above would be discussed with each parent separately and an explanation provided why at this time FDR is not seen to be the most suitable means of addressing the issues that have brought the parents to seek assistance.
