It's unbelievable what some people regard as "therapy" treatment.

Within the article linked to in the OP I couldn't help but notice that the Judge Rotenburg Center (for the disabled) also lists the use of the following as acceptable forms of "therapy" in their handbook:

  • Overcorrection: Requiring, with physical force if necessary, a student to repeat an action many times
  • Spanks, Pinches, Muscle Squeezes
  • Vapor Spray to the face
  • Brief Cool Shower
  • Bad Tastes
  • Aromatic Aroma broken under the nose
  • Manual Restraint - such as the "basket hold" for a period of time
  • Mechanical Restraints - such as handcuffs and / or ankle cuffs
  • Takedowns: Several staff forcing a student to the floor and being held there until they stop struggling
  • Mat Rolling: Rolling an individual into a mat or rug for a period of time
  • PRN Injections
    Source

It seems parents can't trust any organizations with their kids anymore.

I thought this sort of treatment of metally disadvantaged people went out with the Victorian era. Sadly it still goes on today and those responsible should be put away for a very long time......and every day given the same sort of treatment they dished out to those who for whatever reason were in their 'care' :angry:

I cannot even imagine what success such "treatment" could provide or how it would be quantified.

I'm sure there is "science" that supports some degree of validity for "aversive" therapy or a center like this couldn't exist but this was sickening. This was like something you'd hear leaked from Guantanamo.

How normal ordinary people could even work in such an environment? The employes are just as much criminals as the bosses!

How disgusting!

It reminds me of The Lucifer Effect, as described by Philip Zimbardo in the Stanford Prison Experiment.

And half of US christians approve of torture....ain't no wonder. :wacko:

And I thought the shock collars that my Father-in-Law puts on his hunting dogs to train them is cruel. This is practically on the Soulless level of evil.
