She claims to have a masters in social work, but appears to be willing to send a child off to a therapeutic boarding school even when there is no clinical justification for it.

Ms. Spett has a master's degree in psychology and is a licensed therapist. She has always worked within the ethical and legal bounds of her license. You should check your facts before spreading lies!

I have to wonder if the person who posted the insulting remarks about ms. spett is really only upset beause their child needed out of home care do to their own poor parenting and Ms. Spett was asked to step in and make recommendations to potentially save the childs life.  The information provided is inaccurate, she is a Licensed MFT and has been working in this industry for over a decade.  My family worked with Ms. Spett and found her to be professional, compassionate, thorough and highly clinically savvy.  She advocated for our child, was able to hold our hands through a  very difficult process and continues to support all of us as we navigate a world we never dreamed of being in need of.  Seems to me that the disatisfation is based on wanting her to capitulate to a parents demands, not what was in the childs best interest.  I recommend any parent reading this to consider the source of the complaint and the accuracy and intent behind the claims.

I have to respond to the guest who is using such foul language.  I question your sanity in referring to this professional woman as a c--T...
i imagine you are incredibly angry and have to attempt to put people down with this vulgarity rather than looking at your behavior.  I for one would never believe your opinion about someone based on your inappropriate and immature language.

In that case allow me....

How much money does Lexy make referring children to programs and what programs does she refer to? You claim that she is clinically savvy, in that case what clinical studies does she use to determine if a child needs placement and what placement that should be? Does she disclose if any allegations of abuse have been made to programs she refers to? What does she do to ensure that a child's rights are not being exploited?

Lexy Spett appears to be a standard ed con. She will send a kid to a therapeutic boarding school even when there is no valid DSM-IV diagnosis that supports it. She refers to Boulder Creek Academy without pointing out that it went bankrupt because of numerous lawsuits against it and then reforganized after bankruptcy under a new owner with many of the previous employees. You will never find out from Lexy Spett that the facility she is recommending has injured or killed kids.

Alexandra Spett goes by Lexi Spett, not Lexy. She works for Bodin Associates who is on ISAC's watch list.

Yeah, Lexi Spett appears to be just another typical ed con artist. She doesn't appear to do any screening of kids referred to her for placement. If you wave the $5,000 fee in front of her, she will put your kid in a program.

In case you are new to this scam, when you send your kid to a wilderness program, after they have been there for a few weeks, the program will suggest you get a psych eval on your kid. Naturally, the psych eval comes back saying the kid needs to be placed in a therapeutic boarding school. This happens nearly 100% of the time. Then, the 'therapist' at the wilderness program will recommend you use an ed con artist to help you find the 'best program to fit the specific and unique needs of your child.'  Since you don't know any ed con artist, the therapist will suggest one, such as Lexi Spett. Then, it appears that Lexi Spett will suggest 3 or 4 programs that all have some sort of ties to the people that referred you to her. I doubt if Lexi Spett has ever told any parent that their child did not need residential therapy.

This is a very incestuous industry. There are only about 70 some facilities in the entire US, and most of the facilities are owned by a handful of bigger companies, so you are talking about maybe a few dozen different owners in total. Figure that the typical ed con artist probably has some sort of sweet heart deal with nearly every, if not every, owner of a residential therapeutic facility in the entire US.

Think about it, this is a $1 billion a year industry, with only 70 some facilities.  When you show a photo of your kid to Lexi Spett or any other ed con artist, the only thing they see are dollar signs.
Title: Incorrect information regarding Lexy Spett and the industry
Post by: Anonymous on November 06, 2007, 05:21:26 PM
Please do your homework before posting false information on the internet as if it were fact.

The industry you are slandering provides legitimate services to families in need.  The professionals you are slandering have extensive education and experience in the therapeutic industry and strive to provide excellent treatment and/or treatment options.

Please do not generalize and assume that all Educational Consultants are con artists.  As with any profession, some are better than others.  

Lexy is at the top of the profession and does not deserve to be attacked.

DO YOUR HOMEWORK!

Yes, in any profession some workers are better than others. For example, some rapists are only mediocre, while others excel

I hate generalizations about professions. One example of generalizations that people make about professions, is that all con artists are con artists. Another generalization, is that all post-men are involved with mail transfer, somehow, or that veterinarians administer, in some way, to animals.

Please do not generalize. Making accurate statements about what I do for a living threatens my lifestyle

Wonder if this Lexy and someone like, say Sue Scheff have they ever honestly told a parent, "NO, your child does not need to go to a treatment facility; but thanks for asking for my opinion anyway."

Well looks like there is some confusion about this women.  Let me settle it.  She ruined my life, my parents systematically abused me and my brothers and Lexi helped them cover it up.  In the 18 months that I was locked up I never talked to her and she never contacted me.  With the help of family and friends I escaped from my program and will never see my parents again.  Lexi is a sadistic coward who should be treated like the slave trader that she is.  By the way she refers people from my area so I now have 4 friends who share my opinion of her.  But I guess for some people hurting kids is “okay

I recommend you also sue them, as well as lexi. Talk to a lawyer, its very doable.

Does anyone know a lawyer that will take on a case like this against Lexy? I would love to pin her lying ass to the wall

There are no ethical Ed Cons. They don't survive in this industry. People like Lexi chew them up and spit them out.  To survive, you have to be a very convincing con artist with no moral compass.  Lexi is one of the best at what she does, making money from parents and their child's misery. She is very good at playing one parent against the other to keep their kid in the program longer.

When I was attending Mount Bachelor Academy they hosted a giant event for educational consultants, supposedly to celebrate the anniversary of the school's founding. Most students were strictly forbidden from attending, but I volunteered to help in order to get some of the extremely expensive gourmet food that was catered for the educational consultants but that the children could only dream of. They literally built an entire lawn for the event, landscaping it, bringing in cranes, putting in sod, and setting up a tent just so they could hold it on manicured grass. The kids weren't allowed to walk on the 100,000 dollar lawn, which was an expense somehow justified in the budget despite the fact that classes were literally being held in prefab trailers. But hey, very little class actually went on there, anyway, so it didn't really matter. Alas, I digress.

Speeches were given by ed. consultants about how MBA was one of the very first schools to start giving ed. consultants "perks" back in the eighties. A slide show was shown featuring ed. consultants attending special "seminars" to learn what MBA was all about, going white water rafting, relaxing in hot springs, attending expensive dinners. Because MBA was one of the first "emotional growth boarding school" offshoots of CEDU, (offshoot meaning under different ownership with a similar program,) their template influenced the way many of these other groups operate, as well. These are FOR PROFIT corporations, guys. Many corporations that own teen residential treatment centers consider paying ed. consultants as just part of their operating expenses; marketing. Like any corporation, they have a group of stockholders who want them to maximize profit above all else. As long as parents are gullible and desperate, and as long as this is legal, the laws of capitalism say that this practice will probably continue.

If the opportunity is there to earn a monetary bribe, and there's no legal consequence for taking the bribe, it reasons to say that somewhere out there are people without scruples who will come out of the woodwork that will be willing to do what it takes to earn it. ESPECIALLY in our country, where selling out your values for cash is turned into a golden virtue.

Oh LEXI SPETT, so glad to find you have you own PAGE! Don't you feel GREAT about yourself.
1. She is FABULOUS at turning one parent against the other in vulnerable times
2. She recommended me to an abusive residential treatment center that she had never even VISITED or sent anyone to!!
4. She posed as a psychologist to make me admit all the things I have done to my mom because my mom "will not send me away if I did".
5. That tactic only convinced my mom send me away. Can you say manipulative. (Good one, Lexi. You played me for a fool)
6. She suckered my parents out of tons of money and left me to a life of hell.
7. The whole educational consultant thing is a cover up... they get money directly from both the programs and the parents.

I'm not done with you, Lexi Spett.

To all the people who have the courage to read this:

I am a professional Producer of Documentaries and a MOTHER. I have a son, who at this moment is incarcerated, no other term fits, at a THERAPUTIC BOARDING SCHOOL, in COSTA RICA, 'recommended' by LEXY SPETT from the BODIN GROUP. My son was incarcerated at SECOND NATURE, on THE BODIN GROUP's recommendation (by now retired KEVIN KINDLIN) for 8 weeks prior to his abduction to a foreign country.
FACT:
She will appear in court against me,TOMORROW MORNING, and LIE for profit. She will aid in maligning my
character, after a 20 minute, literally 20 minute discussion with me over the phone. She will aid in destroying my life, and keeping my son captive abroad. This is REAL people. This is happening NOW. Wake up.
She is an absolute con-artist, who profiters off of the sorrow and frustration of parents. She is nothing short of a pawn broker, as you accurately describe. She has destroyed my life, she has destroyed my son's life, and she will pay for it, via legal lawsuits.
I am horrified at her tactics. I sat watching her yesterday, in court, for approximately 7 hours, awaiting our trial. She sat with my x-husband, who has been naively complicit in the teen racket. He is being conned out of HUGE amounts of money, and thinks he is 'helping' our son. My son's rights have been violated severly. I will have my day in court, taking it up to the SUPREME COURT, if necessary.

PARENTS, please, PLEASE educate yourself. These people are Limited Liability Corporations, they are a BUSINESS, please do your homework. Read the CONGRESSIONAL HEARINGS on the internet. TEENS die in their programs. This is REAL. This is a TEEN TORTURE. My son, is being held captive, right NOW.

TEENS, please educate yourself, YOU HAVE RIGHTS. I dedicate my life to you, and helping you. I cry with you, I suffer with you, and I have suffered with my son, who remains a captive of the system.
When I read the comments posted here, I was horrified for the teens who suffered under LEXY SPETT's manipulative recommendations , but fear not, all of us united can be victorious in shutting down THE BODIN GROUP. If we unite and vocalize our complaints, and some will sue LEXY SPETT for damages, as I am about to, she will soon be out of business. My eyes were brutally opened two months ago to the horrors of the TEEN INDUSTRY. I am awake, I am alive, and I am heading to WASHINGTON DC. to lobby legislation to SHUT THEM DOWN. I will not rest until this industry is exposed. I have worked with AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL, and am well educated on the abuse of minors around the world. WATCH OUT LEXY SPETT, you are in for a ride. The pain I have suffered, the tears I have cried for my boy, you will cry. You are nothing short of a monster Shame on you and your industry.

The parents and teens who have survived at your abusive actions, will rise up, we will win.

Mother Bear, it should be criminal for The Bodin Group, Kevin Kindlin and Lexy Spett to transport kids out of the country where they don't have the protection of US law. Everyone involved should be thrown in jail for kidnapping. Sounds like a lot of people here had problems with Lexy being a con artist. A Google search on Kevin Kindlin shows less, but check out United States of America v. Kevin J. Kindlin, Case Number 2:2009cv08859 filed on December 2, 2009 in California Central District Court.

Can you post an email address here?

So, I had a run in with Lexi Spett in my younger years and she sent me to two places... but that's another story.

4 years later I'm in college and it's my last day of my Psych 3200 "psychological tests" class. My professor has her PHD in psychology and is teaching this class part time due to her full time job as, none other than, a placement test evaluator herself.  But she seemed too nice to one of those "educational consultants"...   so I had to ask her opinion on educational consulting. Mind you, she also deals with horrific cases and finds placement suggestions for children who had been raped, done drugs, have school troubles, and have personality disorders as well...

She looked at me completely horrified. What I got from our conversation to follow was that boot camps and attachment therapy is in NO WAY a mainstream treatment idea.  She says she can't believe these places still exist and haven't been shut down. On top of that, there is no research backing up the reliability or validity of this kind of therapy. It is dangerous, abusive, and does more harm than good.

Be forewarned that tacking the word "therapeutic" in front of every sentence in no way means "psychologically valid or reliable method of treatments".
