Judge, A.M., Bailey, R., Behrman-Lippert J., Bailey E., Psaila C., and Dickel J. The Transitioning Families Therapeutic Reunification Model In Nonfamilial Abductions. (2016). Family Court Review, 54(2): 232-250.
From the Abstract
We present the value of a family-systems, solution-focused, trauma-informed, and case-specific approach to therapeutic reunification following child abduction. Evidence that is contrary to the popular notion of Stockholm’s syndrome is also marked. Research on the efficacy of therapeutic reunification is essential for the growth of systems equipped to address the dynamic needs of these families. Accordingly, suggestions for evaluation research are proposed.
