In the cases were the client were positive to voluntary treatment, the social services gave examples how the client had failed earlier treatments. The court made shorter assessment, often in line with the social services presentations. The clients themselves made resistance against the authority’s presentations by empathizing normal realities in their lives, by given reasons to their abuse or ways of life, or by empathize their need of treatment and their motivation to attend such (voluntary) treatment.
