"Don't send her away, help her"
« on: May 22, 2007, 02:18:12 PM »
I just ran across this site about "re-framing" -- a concept I had not heard of before. It seems to be affiliated with something called the Strong model.

What caught my attention is the picture of the young woman with the message "don't send her away, help her." But within a few clicks, you find yourself at a site that's pushing residential programs.

Is this yet another new Marketing tactic? Telling parents they shouldn't send their kids away, and then proceeding to sell them on the idea that their particular kid really does need to be sent away?

You'd be right. Read the site. They're 'doin it better'.
Then google Strategic Insight Mangement

http://www.strongmodel.com/treatmentpro ... ools.shtml
A small number of treatment programs have joined with Michael Behning and his company, Strategic Insight Management, to help parents find solutions closer to home.

If you fear anything, fear weakness. If you demand anything, demand strength (Michael Behning).

Michael Behning provides workshops based upon the Strong Model of Interaction and Intervention. In these workshops he provides insight into techniques and approaches to working with troubled teens that are normally taught to staff members of residential treatment programs. In addition, he displays the importance of local therapists in developing a plan to save your troubled teen. The goal is to provide solutions as close to home as possible.

Mr. Behning will help you to determine whether or not out-of-home residential care is necessary. In the process you will learn principles and tactics to draw strength, vs. weakness from your child.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*Those who employ Mr. Behning as a Treatment Consultantto assist in placing their teen/child in a residential program will receive insight into both traditional and non-traditional financing options, some of which he has personally researched to decrease monthly costs, and, in some cases, to increase potential tax advantages. Nonetheless, Behning's initial recommendation is that you seek and employ local resources, including his workshops, a therapist, etc., before seeking residential placement.

Is Who involved with this? Sounds right up his alley.

The SIM Axis of Evil
Marketing to parents, existing and future programs
http://www.simalliance.com/

To parents:
The section To Parents ..... See References to Troubled Teen Issues Below ..... ALSO, read this .....

You are a resource. You are a very valuable resource to other parents who may be experiencing similar problems with their children. If you own or manage a web site, consider joining our link exchange program. Regardless of what your resources are, we would also appreciate your involvement in our upcoming online forums. These forums will help parents whose financial resources make treatment help unfeasible.

Bookmark this site, and join us in our effort to help ALL people who seek us out, while trying to find help for troubled teens and at-risk children.

Educate yourself. Also, read the messages to the right, and thoroughly read through our site (links to the left). SIM is seriously concerned about the abundant unethical practices in the youth-at-risk industry. It permeates marketing practices, treatment programs, etc., and is littered throughout the internet.

STOP using search engines to find help. Be wise, and bookmark. If you're looking for help for your troubled teen or child, DON'T use a search engine to find that help. You WILL fall into a whirlwind of marketing traps and tactics.
Instead, bookmark the following specific, important sites:

www.insightpros.com
www.therapistlocator.net
www.strugglingteens.com

Struggling Teens has a wealth of information for parents who are looking for answers. Stop searching the net, and look at what they offer.

Struggling Teens also provides links to educational consultants whose experience in the industry dwarfs that of most independent referral sources. If you speak with them first, they will provide you with unbiased information regarding programs and perils in the youth-at-risk industry. You will not get this lack of bias by contacting most of the web sites that pop up in the search engines.

Also, the Therapist Locator service has information on numerous disorders and problems facing troubled teens and their families. In addition to being a reliable resource for finding a local therapist, you will find valuable information regarding potential therapeutic issues facing your family members.

Indicator of Quality and Value:
A solid indicator of our support of a program or treatment service is if you see it listed in our link exchange, or on any of our sites' pages. We still recommend that you do your homework before placing your child anywhere.

You are your child's most valuable authority figure. Don't compromise his/her safety or well-being by thinking you are unimportant or unnecessary. Get the assistance of a therapist AND an educational consultant, each of whom can help you make the critical decisions without being swayed by marketers.

Saint George, Utah says it all.

Digging a little further, I found a link that connects Key Point Academy to Liahona Academy. That is really fucking ironic, since the whole reason I found the site about Behning's seminars is I was looking into this strange new "road show" Marketing ploy that I mentioned in another thread -- a Marketing ploy that got one of my son's friends sent to guess where? Liahona Academy.

http://wwf.fornits.com/viewtopic.php?t=5523

So if Liahona is a WWASPS affiliate, and this Behning guy (from St. George of all places) is doing road show seminars and pretending to advocate community-based treatment, then those WWASPS devils have gotten really underhanded in their efforts to deceive parents.

Wow, we knew WWASPS was getting stung (sorry I couldn't resist) by all the bad press, and we knew their affiliate programs were trying to distance themselves from WWASPS. But the bad boys of St. George are so clever -- now they are doing road shows where they probably sound almost like advocates, saying things like "don't send her away, help her" -- followed by something like, "but when your attempts to help her don't produce quick results, hand her over to us for a year or two and we'll make a wonderful young lady out of her."

I think it is a dangerous trend.  

On the one hand, when the thought coercion and behavior modification become more of a community practice, there are certain reality checks and balances that should theoretically curtail some of its more extreme forms.  

On the other hand, what happens when the community becomes inured to the concept of brainwashing to begin with?  It doesn't take that many years for people to consider a concept to be entrenched, acceptable even.

This is not even taking into consideration the threat inherent in the hidden referral service involved (e.g., following the links re. what to do if "community-based therapy" doesn't work for your kid).
