Re: “This is NOT plagiarism, says Dexter Suggs. But .....

LR public school students certainly can easily begin raising their grades if this kind of copying is not considered plagiarism!

Re: “Harris therapy controversial

The quote below is from one the most comprehensive professional articles on this topic. It is from the February 2006 journal Child Maltreatment.

http://depts.washington.edu/hcsats/PDF/Att…

Controversial attachment therapies are viewed by
many in the mainstream professional and research
communities as presenting a significant physical and
psychological risk to children with little evidence of
therapeutic benefit. Critics have long argued that
these treatments are not based on sound or accepted
theory, are inconsistent with the general principles
of effective clinical practice, and are reminiscent of
other unsound and sometimes dangerous fad or cult
therapies that periodically arise in the mental health
treatment and self-help arenas. Critics argue that
most of these children have never received state-of-the-art,
evidence-based traditional treatments, so pro-
ponent’s claims that “traditional therapies don’t
work” are not well founded. Furthermore, they argue
that using holding therapy or similar techniques to
force children who were severely maltreated to have
close, confining physical contact is more likely to exacerbate
their difficulties than to help. In addition,
critics note that holding therapy and those attachment
therapies that seek to demonstrate dominance
and control over the child may duplicate the dynamics
of abuse experiences and reinforce rather
than ameliorate relationship problems.

Re: “Casting out demons: why Justin Harris got rid of kids he applied pressure to adopt

A distinction: Telling a dcfs worker about suspected abuse is, technically, not "reporting abuse." Seems like it should be, but it is not. I am sure about this. Abuse and neglect reports are made by calls to the Child Abuse Hotline.
