  1. What we need here are lawyers. This kind of stuff needs to be handled in the criminal or civil court, or maybe both.

    We probably need to get some laws changed too, and for that we need political activists.

    If these fix my kid service providers had to comply with what was intended by mandatory reporting, then they would be gone. They would have to report each case to the authorities. And their entire business model is based upon the idea that they side with the parents.

    So if they ignore mandatory reporting, make them subject to mandatory arrest.

    What we don’t need are psychotherapists, recovery, healing, or evangelical religion.

    So we need to start politically organizing and acting. Lawsuits, aggressive sidewalk protests calling for the incarceration of named health care providers, and campaigning to change laws.



    • Nomadic,

      I totally agree! In fact, our book chapter says we need to hold the healthcare system and actors in it accountable. It also says we should make protocols at hospitals for mandatory reporting. It’s like you are reading our minds! I plan to go back to the practicing providers who abused me (I’m 45 so many are still working) and talk to them about this. I wonder what they will say! Thanks for your comment.
