Stockholme Syndrome
« on: March 26, 2011, 09:38:40 AM »
I noticed one of the warning signs of a potentially abusive residential treatment center is that its employees are former 'inmates.'  But, I did not understand why that would raise concern until I saw a mention of Stockholme Syndrome.

I now understand that having former inmates as employees is an indication of potentially emotionally abusive conditions that could lead to stockholme syndrome, and thus to cause the persons so affected to seek continued attachment to their captors even after their confinement had concluded.

It makes sense.
