Abuse by eating disorder therapists? Please tell me no.

I am playing investigative reporter and I need your help. There is a high profile eating disorder treatment center in the Midwest where it is rumored their therapists are abusing patients by not following their code of ethics. When I heard of this I dug deeper, and I fear the individual suspected is going way farther than that, we are talking about sexual misconduct. Send me your anonymous tips to mamavision@gmail.com…lets shut the bastard down.

    I agree there are a lot of people who are too young and inexperienced at these places. Mine had interns and fresh college grads wanting to go into the field- but they only were allowed to supervise meals and escort us around to activities- NOT do therapy. If their interaction is limited to that until they have their appropriate credentials, then I don’t think that’s so bad but I too have heard that not all hospitals do that cause it’s cheaper labor which is just irresponsible.

    But therapists taking advantage of patients- now that’s uncalled for and eggrigious. I know you can’t get specific, but if there is one thing I can tell you in my own experience of going through a sexual assault case- (not one that involved a therapist thank God), there is little that can be done without the victim’s willingness to cooperate and make a formal complaint. That’s just the way our system goes, and I learned that the very hard way. I think it’s great to conduct an investigation, but I would encourage anyone who contacts you to make a formal complaint against the facility. One of the reasons aside from being a celebrity (while the case is different)that the legal team cut a sleazy deal with rapelanski was because the victim- who was also a minor at the time, did not want to pursue it any further.

    Any of these types of allegations has to have cooperation from the victim, and even then, it can be hard to prove, and the decision to pursue legal action not always in the accuser’s favor. I’m just telling you from my own experience that I know that’s how it goes, so I would really try and encourage people who reach out to you to speak out. It would at least bring it out on the open and raise awareness, if nothing else.
