    In deze bijdrage wordt een reactie gegeven op de publicatie van Van Montfoort (2018), ‘Beschuldigingen van kindermishandeling en echtscheidingsconflicten. Reactie op De Ruiter & Van Pol (2017)’. Van Montfoort richt zich in zijn reactie exclusief op onze vraag over de prevalentie van valse beschuldigingen van kindermishandeling in onze websurvey bij meer dan 800 juridische en sociale professionals in Nederland die in hun werk met conflictscheidingen te maken hebben. Wij delen zijn standpunten niet en betogen dat het voor juridische en sociale professionals noodzakelijk is om kennis te hebben van prevalentieschattingen om tunnelvisie te vermijden. Daarnaast geven wij aan dat verbetering van het feitenonderzoek in omgangszaken noodzakelijk is.

    This contribution is a response to Van Montfoort (2018), ‘Allegations of child abuse in conflictual divorce cases. Response to De Ruiter & Van Pol (2017)’ . Van Montfoort focusses his response exclusively on the question concerning the prevalence of false allegations of child abuse from our websurvey among more than 800 legal and social professionals in the Netherlands who are dealing with high conflict divorce cases in their work. We do not share his viewpoints and argue that both legal and social professionals need to have knowledge of prevalence estimations (‘base rates’) in order to avoid tunnel vision. We also emphasize the need for improvements in fact finding in child custody cases in our country and provide examples of recent initiatives to this end.
