Who is a therapist?

These are people with formal secular training who have degrees, and keep up with and understand the latest literature.. They can be psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers and the like.

When they are frum, this helps in providing an insight into particular issues relating to frum people and directions that may be more palatable.

When qualified, they are answerable to a professional board. If there is a complaint of misconduct, they must face that board. They must be accredited and re-accredited.

What they cannot be, is people with either no degree, or people with a degree in geography or history or economics or whatever, who suddenly become “experts” in dealing with social issues and call themselves therapists. There are creeps out there who do this. They are silver-tongued and charismatic. Beware.

Admittedly, there is the occasional very good one (e.g. Rabbi Yanki Horowitz), but there are some deeply troubled and sinister ones, who are answerable (currently) to nobody, some of whom will face their day, sooner than later.

It remind me of the apocryphal story of the big maven who built a succa according to all the shittos. His Succa fell down and he came to complain to his Rav. The Rav, said “Nu, Tosphos asks the same question”.

Beware of fraudsters parading as therapists. Don’t go to them or give them a podium to speak. Let them get an education and be answerable to a board.

    1. Bruce,
      This is not a Chabad issue per se.
      It crosses all boundaries sadly.
      People simply don’t realise that a butcher can also hang a sign on their door which reads ‘therapist’

  1. Oh that it was that simple. You only get this via Weltanschauungskrieg leaks/

    I watched Derren Brown recently worked on a confident young female who appeared to be doing well. Natalie was non religious from choice and was reduced to tears in 10 minutes with he explained a” religious like” experience from which she quickly recovered saying “why couldn’t this (intervention) happen earlier in her life.” It is on YouTube and a discussion can be found say here: just google “Derren Brown + Fear and Faith + Natalie”

    NLP which was the most obvious medium used takes whatever works from any tradition or source ( usually but not always trauma) and distills it using as a potent delivery system, the rule being whatever works. A stealth version of this is Monarch Programming where the intent is what distinguishes it from other messages or delivery systems. A warning up front about M.P. is that it is so secret no one will defend it or answer to it that I know of, and Dr Josef Mengele worked on the scheme for decades contributing his trauma creating skills. I know this because I met him. In his regard to seek rescue or solace in religion would be a likely fail because apart from trauma the most prevalent technique used in Monarch programming was to similarly approximate with religion and shill, faked, concentrated satanic liet-motifs until a person was overcome.

    As such DID or MPD was achieved, a state involving many sacrifices that will never be recognised, because so much was done covertly and much of that subliminally. So, we have a situation, created by man, where religion is used as a tin – opener where therapists are more likely to be shills cooling out (in the sense of cooling out the mark) the victim with more of the same, en-meshing a poor sap in a world of intrigue just to perfect a system for military and
    criminally-liable goals. In the world that I describe a therapist of any religion or none is likely to be working for “the other side”, or if ignorant of the processes, likely to “trip a suicide program”, or a preventative “murder the therapist” program, but more likely just trip a “recording angel” program to monitor the hapless therapist. Late Jewish French- Irish hypnotist Paul Goldin was a real card and was asked now and then to deprogram cult victims. The US Government ( he never asked who) used him with Jonestown/Jamestown (I forget) massacre survivors with his peculiar skills.

    They asked him back for the Waco siege survivors, and of all of these he found the trickiest were Scientology refuseniks. This is a military chessboard and well intentioned therapists are likely to be on the other side already or monitored with the same extravagance as when I met Mengele and what happened a decade later. A military program like Monarch Programming makes the use of religion to induct a victim a fraud, but also, the use of religion to
    free a victim is at best going to be a corkscrew twist down, not up, to keep the program intact.

    In such a world the sham tactics of Derren Brown are , if explained as in Natalie’s case, more honest, and more economical, than traditional observances. Sadly I know what will happen. Traditional religions, in a world of survival of the fittest, will compete with the charlatanry and try to recover lost souls. This will be the making or the breaking of your religious preferences or mine. The trouble is, it will bolster the overarching world that Monarch Programming has become, working so hard at the subliminal level. And your people will not be free. And there will be no competent therapists left to care. At times like these a sensible organisation starts looking outside the paradigm. Good Luck, everywhere I look I see compromised or truncated aims, consistent facts and Grimm methods. http://bhmversusmengele.tumblr.com/
