Schroeder: Celebrity Promoter of "Rage Reduction" Therapy[edit]

I think there should be mention of Schroeder's role as celebrity promoter of "Rage Reduction" therapy (aka Attachment Therapy, Holding Therapy, Compression Therapy, Rebirthing, etc.) Schroeder was apparently instrumental in popularizing the book "High Risk: Children Without a Conscience" by Ken Magid and Carol McKelvey which was first published in 1989 and is still in print. Schroeder wrote the Foreword for this book. (http://www.amazon.com/High-Risk-Children-Without-Conscience/dp/0553346679/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1259793263&sr=8-1)

Through private communication with me (acting on behalf of Advocates for Children in Therapy), Schroeder confirmed on November 23, 2002, that she still stood by her decision to promote this book.

"High Risk" promotes the long-discredited notion of catharsis and the use of aversives as therapy, e.g. coercive physical restraint, painful knuckling the ribs of the child, yelling at a child, etc. Photos illustrating these methods are included in "High Risk" (e.g. page 183).

Rage Reduction (or Attachment Therapy as it is more commonly called today) is denounced by APSAC and the American Psychological Association's Division on Child Maltreatment (see "Report of the APSAC Task Force on Attachment Therapy, Reactive Attachment Disorder, and Attachment Problems" in the journal "Child Maltreatment" Feb. 2006; http://cmx.sagepub.com/cgi/content/short/11/1/76). All national professional mental health organization hold that use of coercive restraint as therapy is unethical.

Numerous high profile criminal child abuse and death cases have been related to the practice of Attachment Therapy/Parenting. (For a partial listing of victims: http://www.childrenintherapy.org/victims/index.html)

On October 8, 2010, *Science-Based Medicine* blog printed my detailed article about Rep. Schroeder's unrepentant promotion of the book High Risk: "Pat Schroeder’s endorsement of Rage Reduction Therapy: The Cult of the Celebrity Strikes Again," http://www.sciencebasedmedicine.org/?p=7305.
