Canada and the U.S. Response

By Bill Eddy, LCSW, Esq.

Thanks for sharing your story. Your situation sounds similar to the California case I wrote about in High Conflict People in Legal Disputes in the 3rd chapter. In that case, a Father drove his car into the front of the building where the Mother worked. Then, he appealed his case based on “freedom of expression” (he lost, fortunately). What I’ve learned is that these extreme cases show up in all states and countries around the world. As a society, we need to learn how to contain this high conflict behavior, so that others don’t have to suffer. Best wishes.
