Candace's Law
« on: June 01, 2001, 09:44:04 PM »
In the mid 1960s a New York psychiatrist under contract for the city of New York visited Synanon in California and what he saw he later wrote brought tears to his eyes.  The psychiatrist was Dan Casriel.  He wrote the book So Fair a House that put Synanon on the  map.  Along with William O'Brien,  a Catholic priest who sent many of NYC's addicts to Synanon,  the two men formed Daytop and hired Synanite  David Deitch to run it.  Daytop is today one of the most successful Synanon follow-on programs (Joe Ricci was a Daytop student who went on to found his own program for kids--Elan).  

Synanon looked at a lot of the newage (one word rhymes with sewage) therapies and applied many of them at their extended weekend seminar called The Trip,  replicated at the Straights as Parent Weekend.  One therapy Synanon employed was beating a pillow which was to represent something loathed.  You might recall the WAMI SAFE segment where a girl alleges that one boy was given a chair that represented his own mother and the boy was to deal with it in a time out room.  The chair was demolished.  

Well Dan Casriel was a big proponent of another of these new therapies beside Synanon's Game.  He promoted Scream Therapy.  Primal Scream is where you lay in the middle of your doctor's office and scream to the top of your lungs!!!!

Another bizzare therapy is re-birthing,  where one simulates the birth experience so,  I guess,  they can get a restart on life.  Read how restraining/rebirthing  has been outlawed in Colorado after it killed a little girl.  http://www.insidedenver.com/drmn...62,00.html

STOP THE MADNESS.  STOP THEM FROM ABUSING OUR KIDS.  BE IN WASHINGTON DC THIS SUMMER FOR THE FIRST EVER CONFERENCE ON REHABS THAT ABUSE.  http://www.trebach.com/conference.htm

Let's take it back to them!!!!
