I think the word your using is, prothises also called proskomide, I just loked it up for spelling. It fits your scentance.
Also, jewls: well spring retreat is a very good option if you can spend two weeks. it's kid'a expencive, well not realy concidering the cost of therapy, and you need to suply your own transportation. I'v contacted them as one of my options. I contacted the BBB (better buisness buero) about them and they have no complaints and are listed with a satisfactory record. I would recomend contacting the BBB for whomever you chose to make sure your getting what you want. I would list the # for BBB but I'm not sure that would be ok in the forum guidlines. you can get the # from your local BBB agency. There may be other office's that can tell you abut the validity of theripists that I don't know about.
Another option I thought about is Steven Alan Hassan [www.freedomofmind.com
] He will come to you for single one on one. he also offers group, or family sessions to help ease the berden of cost for those who don't have allot of money. He was one of my top picks. He has high credentials and is nationaly certifide, among other things.
Anyways, good luck and be carfull! Remember! Its worth it to check up on who you think will be best for you. Don't trust just anyone, I don't think you will your a smart girl, I just warn for caution's sake.
To whom it may concern:
]Disclaimer regarding Steve Hassan
The Ross Institute of New Jersey/May 2013
The inclusion of news articles within the Ross Institute of New Jersey (RI) archives, which mention and/or quote Steven Hassan, in no way suggests that RI recommends Mr. Hassan or recognizes him in any way.
News articles that mention Steve Hassan have been archived for historical purposes only due to the information they contain about controversial groups, movements and/or leaders.
RI does not recommend Steven Hassan.
RI has received serious complaints about Steve Hassan concerning his fees. Mr. Hassan does not publicly disclose his fee schedule, but according to complaints Steve Hassan has charged fees varying from $250.00 per hour or $2,500.00 per day to $500.00 per hour or $5,000.00 per day. This does not include Mr. Hassan's expenses, which according to complaints can be quite substantial.
Steven Hassan has charged families tens of thousands of dollars and provided questionable results. One recent complaint cited total fees of almost $50,000.00. But this very expensive intervention effort ended in failure.
Dr. Cathleen Mann, who holds a doctorate in psychology and has been a licensed counselor in the state of Colorado since 1994 points out, "Nowhere does Hassan provide a base rate and/or any type or accepted statistical method defining his results..."
Steve Hassan has at times suggested to potential clients that they purchase a preliminary report based upon what he calls his "BITE" model. These "BITE reports" can potentially cost thousands of dollars.
Steve Hassan runs a for-profit corporation called "Freedom of Mind." Mr. Hassan is listed as the corporate agent for that business as well as its president and treasurer.
RI does not recommend "Freedom of Mind" as a resource.
RI also does not list or recommend Steve Hassan's books.
To better understand why Mr. Hassan's books are not recommended by RI read this detailed review of his most recently self-published book titled "Freedom of Mind."
Steve Hassan's cult intervention methodology has historically raised concerns since its inception. The book "Recovery from Cults" (W.W. Norton & Co. pp. 174-175) edited by Dr. Michael Langone states the following:
"Calling his approach 'strategic intervention [sic] therapy,' Hassan (1988) stresses that, although he too tries to communicate a body of information to cultists and to help them think independently, he also does formal counseling. As with many humanistic counseling approaches, Hassan’s runs the risk of imposing clarity, however subtly, on the framework’s foundational ambiguity and thereby manipulating the client."
RI has also learned that Mr. Hassan has had dual-relationships with his counseling clients. That is, clients seeing Mr. Hassan for counseling may also do professional cult intervention work with him.
Professionals in the field of cultic studies have also expressed concerns regarding Steven Hassan's use of hypnosis and Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP).
Based upon complaints and the concerns expressed about Mr. Hassan RI does not recommend Steve Hassan for counseling, intervention work or any other form of professional consultation.
