General Interest > Thought Reform

I have come into possession of parent-only WWASP documents.


I have removed all personally identifying data concerning parent and student. If somehow I missed something for the love of God please remove it--but I've read it five times now just to make sure.

I have tried to post this to the correct sub-forum, I really don't know where this should go, but given that the emails scream of suggestion planting, I think this is a good place for it.

I also have a PDF of a seminar overview. Anyway... anyone going to be in Nevada? If so I recommend you start putting together some cardboard and sharpies! I'm 800 miles away and broke as can be, so I doubt I'll make it...but even a couple sign wielding protesters could be enough to distract the parents.

Dear [Parent],

Your teen [*************] is enrolled in a Premier affiliated school
HA, which utilizes Premier Educational Seminars as a major part of
your families’ program.   Your school is unique in this is a family
program not just a program for your teen.  While your school will work
with your teen over the upcoming months, Premier is the element within
the program which works with you as the parents and the entire family.
 Premier offers unique services to you and your school which will
prove integral to your success as a family.    It is critical for you
to understand the full program and what you can do to maximize your
efforts.    Your early involvement will

1.        Timely address those issues within the family which created
the breakdown
2.        Ensure you have the necessary tools to effectively work with
your child
3.        Ensure you assist your child in dealing with the real issues
4.        Maximize your efforts thus reducing the time in the program
5.        Ensure you utilize and gain all the tools available to
reunite your family while you are in the program.  Delay only means
you will miss integration of all the tools and skills which lessen the
success rate upon leaving the program.

It is important that you read this letter completely as there are
action steps that you will need to complete.

We know this time can be a bit overwhelming with calls, new terms, new
people, and most importantly a concern to heal the family.    We find
some common questions among all our families.
·         How did it get so far out of control?
·         What do I do next now that I have enrolled my teen?
·         Who are all these people and what is the “program?”
·         Did I make the right decision?

These questions will only be answered over time as you journey through
the program.   However, we at Premier know if we can start the process
of addressing these questions and much more immediately, the impact
upon you, your teen’s efforts and the effectiveness of the program
will be significant.    Too many parents wait to engage thus slowing
or stopping the necessary work to create success.    We urge you to
start now!

Premier is one of those “new” things you will be learning and
utilizing over the next months.  This letter is to introduce you to
Premier and educate you on who, what and how Premier is an important
part.   Premier offers personal development and skill building
workshops for both the teens and parents.    Your teen will be
attending Premier seminars during their time in the school.    While
your teen is attending seminars, you as the parents are invited to
attend very similar seminars to both assist you in creating a lasting
change within the family dynamic.     As both you and the teen
progress through the seminars and levels, you will be invited to
attend the Parent-Child seminars.    These seminars and workshops are
integral to the overall program flow.

In order to explain the program, seminars and all the support Premier
offers to your family, Premier has several upcoming events that will
assist you in starting the program quickly and effectively.      We
urge you to get involved NOW so as not to waste any time, energy, or
Premier's focus is to provide tools and learning that will assist you,
the teen and the entire family in creating lasting change in moving
towards a whole and healthy family.  It is essential that you have a
working knowledge of what to expect from our services and how to
effectively plan and utilize these services.   In order to assist you
in understanding the seminar elements and the importance of their
integration into the program, we have setup an Orientation call for
you to attend.   In this call you will be presented with detail
information regarding Premier and our services and will be given an
opportunity to ask questions.    Attached is the Seminar Overview
Manual for your review.    Please put this manual with your Student
Guide which you should receive from your school.

Before the call, please read the attached Seminar Overview Manual.
This will ensure the call is focused and to the point.   We
acknowledge that your time is valuable and we desire to ensure that
all interactions with Premier are valuable.   This pre-reading will
assist you in understanding all the information we will discuss.

This is a mandatory call before you attend Discovery.    Please put
this call on your schedule now.   If you and your spouse cannot attend
the same call, that is perfectly ok.   We have listed two dates for
your attendance.   Please call the office or go online to  to register for the call.
If you have extended family members who are integral to your families
program, please invite to attend this call.   If you are just in the
program and there is a Discovery before the next call, call the office
to register and we will ensure you are prepared for Discovery
immediately.   Do not miss the next Discovery due to this call.

Geezzz... They really go all out with the hard sell, eh?  :beat:

Any chance of posting that "Seminar Overview Manual?" You can post it as an attachment.

A word to the wise, anybody who may protest,dont antagonize LVPD or the Clark county sherriffs office,take it from 1st hand,mostly they are professional,but dont push your luck. :nods:

I've been waiting for years to get something useful to post here! I'm going to try and post that manual later when I get to the computer that it's currently stored on. I haven't even read it yet :) but I'm sure there's some damning material on it, there usually is.

So I've been trying to build material for a presentation to a church (still waiting for approval, but if my church won't do it, I'll just have to do it somewhere else). Anywho, right now the only real credible video material I have for the presentation is the PBS documentary "who's watching the kids" and a whole grip of congressional testimony. If anybody has any good material (video or otherwise) from traditional media venues or government sources I would be eternally grateful. I have some court testimony, and I'm interested but that's not exactly what I'm primarily looking for.


Seminar Overview attached (I hope).
Still haven't had a chance to read it. *sigh*
The wife has me painting bathrooms and looking for a job so that puts anti-wwasp activity and my novel on hold. Sad day.
