What's your issue w/Pam? Did you ever have her as a team leader?  I guess her husband wasn't working there anymore when yu got there.  I don't know if his name was Marc or William.

By the way, the puking icon is one of the last in Show More

I was browsing through other forums.  Holy crap! I can't believe the stuff they did to kids at Straight, Casa etc.  HOW DID ANY OF THAT PASS FOR THERAPY?  I think CEDU is bad but the stuff that went on in some of the other places, along with the living conditions--unfreakingunbelievable.  PLEASE TELL ME THE WORST OF THESE ARE SHUT DOWN!!  I mean it is criminal.  Sounds like some of the posts from Staright were from students from late 70s, early eighties. Is this place still running???????????  THe mind abuse at CEDU seemed more crafty so it "looked good" to parents.  I don't know how any parent could say straight even looked good, what the hell!

Did you ever come to terms with it with your parents? Did they ever "get it."

I went to CEDU in the late eighties so I'm of little help.  I hope you are legit because if you are not, you are an accomplice in a sense.  If you are legit, then close 'em for whatever you can find. But kids talked about being molested by siblings et al and noone did anything. Shouldn't CEDU report that? Shouldn't there be reports on their lack of real accreditation? My parents really believed they were competent, trained therapists. What about their rap sessions--nothing short of total VERBAL abuse.  At the very least, CEDU should be branded with a warning label: Beware. This is a cult.  

I hope ex-staff is cooperating w/you because it seems some know of some financial and sexual abuses.

What about "running your thinking"  Running your fear"  etc.  

I always hated the "what are you doing to your little girl?".  They meant the little girl inside me.  Well, the little girl was miserable and just wanted to grow up.  Besides, after my first rap, that little girl innocence was gone, gone, gone.

Holy crap, that first rap!! I felt like I was hit by a grenade and I didn't even participate. I mean DEEP SHOCK!!!  THe abuse, the drama, the tales of screwing animals and covering yourself w/shit. It's not like I fell off the turnip truck.. I was an experimental teen--just not w/animals and feces. I'm not judging I'm just saying it was shock city. All the puking and snotty noses and bullying into submission. WHOA!

I dunno, Hell.  To me, raps were strictly used as a mechanism for abuse and control.  Even though I sorta blended in, it made me ill to see how other people were horrendously mistreated.  Staff totally cultivated this shit.  They did NOT --at least when I was there--teach you how to communicate your issues in a mature and direct manner, buthow to be an abusive bully. The best bully was the staff pet.

I tried to talk to my folks (this was 17 years ago) but it's hard for them to believe a qualified counselor referred them to a cult.  Also, the group think/rap abuse is harder to get their head around than physical abuse.  This is why I'd love to find a book that describes a CEDU-like experience.  I don't think I could write it though; I'm not good at putting stuff together and I think I've blocked a lot out.

Has anybody ever talked to any staff post -grad and let them have a piece of your mind?  As an adult, they wouldn't have the power over me they used to--I sometimes fantasize about confronting them (verbally) about their BS therapy.

I will say this... Every newspaper article about CEDU refer it as a private high school:  That is a laugh in a half!  There ain't nothing academic about it---at least not when I went there. I mean, don't these reporters know what it is--Camp Cult?

What's not fair?  

I realy feel CEDU was verbally and emotionally abusive as well as dishonest to the families. This was nurtured through the program.  If you had no big dirt you had better come up with something.  That whole "little girl" stuck in an oven did not ring any bells for me because the staff didn't give a crap about the state of my inner child.  Also, when I am taking accountablity and working on something, as an individual, I just like straight talk not cedu terms and bs.  My "inner child" was too busy freaking over those freaks to be worth mentioning.

yo chinsky, when did you go to cedu?

Was Brandi a former student of CEDU?  I hear former students becoming staff is the WORST.

Who thought that synanon type therapy and the abuse and confrontation of CEDU would be effective?  When staff members heard all that, didn't it scare them off? Didn't people know you don't teat kids the same with verbal abuse.  The stuff taht kills me is that I never had a rap brrage directed at me that had any basis in truth (no, I'm not in denial.  Staff decided what the truth was and went with it) I was just a deeply insecure, profoundly hearing impaired student who was lonely and violated and sleep deprived and low achiever prior to CEDU.  I wasn't a bad kid or a liar to my folks or a druggie. I neede help building myself up not tearing myself down, being treated like I'm on quarantine.

For me, the staff comments have been particularly helpful for insight and closures.  Are any of you from RS in 1987?

Changes? Too Many to count. I'd deep six the raps in favor of qualified therapy and positive life coaching.  For peer issues, do peer mediation, in style that is dignified and not abusive.
