Judge Rotenberg Center Help Wanted Ad

I recently googled Filthy Child Abusers Inc.—oops, I meant the Judge Rotenberg Center—and noticed that a large number of help wanted ads came up in the results. Looks as if they may be having a problem with staff turnover. Hmmm, I wonder why? Maybe it's hard to find people who are so sickeningly depraved as to enjoy torturing disabled kids for a living? Naa-a-ah. More likely, their personnel department needs a little help drafting more precise ads to bring in applications from just the right candidates. I'm feeling charitably inclined today, so I'll offer them, free of charge, a few suggestions for a well-targeted ad:

Ability to tell creative stories. No, sorry, the Judge Rotenberg Center isn't looking for kindhearted staff who enjoy telling bedtime stories to the kiddies. The sort of creativity that's needed here is a talent for inventing plausible explanations for injuries, such as claiming that burns from electrodes all over a child's body were caused by medical conditions. Staff at the Judge Rotenberg Center must also be able to repeat the Big Lie with a straight face, that is, the claim that electric shocks are necessary to prevent severely disturbed youths from maiming themselves through self-injury. Pathological liars are strongly encouraged to apply, as this whopper of a story is becoming much harder to tell now that the mainstream media are reporting the truth. (For example, as reported by the Boston Herald, Antwone Nicholson, a teenager whose mother has filed a lawsuit against the school district that was responsible for sending him to the Judge Rotenberg Center, was routinely shocked whenever he swore or did not cooperate.)

Math skills helpful. It appears that some of the creative storytellers at the Judge Rotenberg Center are a tad mathematically impaired. They're claiming that Antwone Nicholson had 5,000 violent episodes a week before they started shocking him. Let's get out our calculators, readers. There are 10,080 minutes in a week. That means the kid would've needed to have a "violent episode" every two minutes, around the clock, for an entire week, without ever stopping to eat, sleep, use the toilet, et cetera. No matter how creatively a "violent episode" may be defined, we're getting into the realm of mathematical impossibility here. (But hey, what's a little perjury and evidence tampering among friends, right?)

Not easily flustered. By bothersome little annoyances like children screaming in extreme pain, tort lawsuits, child abuse investigations, the occasional homicide investigation... heck, it's just another day at the ol' ball yard.

Equal opportunity employer. Male, female, any race, color, creed or national origin are welcome to apply. (No need to mention the disabled. They're not people, are they?)

Preference for veterans. Extra bonus points on the application will be given to those who have experience interrogating prisoners at Abu Ghraib or Guantanamo Bay.

And the most essential qualification for a job at the Judge Rotenberg Center?

Total lack of human decency.

  • Maybe you should apply.....just kidding, of course.

    I got an email from an individual who lives near the "JRC" and said he read that some 20 advocacy groups are calling to have it shut down. Do you know who these might be?

  • Why would you say, "Maybe you should apply..." in any context, especially to an autistic person, Kristina? It's really not funny. Or am I being too sensitive? No, I think that was just really not funny.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 8:46 PM  

  • Well, they may not have as much trouble finding applicants as one might think -- a recent poll indicates that most Americans are OK with torture.

    The linked article ostensibly refers to the case of interrogating prisoners, but humans are humans. And one thing this article points out that REALLY ought to be noted in the case of thinking that abuse will help children "learn to behave":

    people under torture will tell interrogators anything they want to hear in order to stop the torture.

    Any supposed "treatment" that works on a principle of driving people to desperation and fear for their life is most certainly torture.

  • I my self is student in JRC and i'm on a visit at home right now the school is terrible they are so inhumane I wish some one can come save us because no matter how many things I did in the past I don't deserve this.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 6:53 PM  

  • Its funny how so many people talk trash about the JRC. It makes you feel so good to denounce someone else as inhuman, or evil. It makes you feel more humane and good in comparison. Personally, I wouldn't express such strong opionions on subjects I know nothing about; I'd leave that to experts. Do you personally know how difficult it is to watch your child scratch at their skin compulsively until it bleeds? Can you miagine monthly or even weekly trips to the doctor to treat your own child that manages to bruise and bloody their hands by repeatedly punching a cement wall? Do you even have children? How do you cope with the helplessness you feel when you've tried everything, but your child still manages to injure and main themselves? Do you tie them down 24/7? How can you work to support your family when you have to spend all day watching your child for fear of them fatally injuring themselves? What do you do when your child has been turned away from over a dozen treatment centers as untreatable? You people talk about these treatments as wanton abuse, but you gloss over the fact that these applications are individually court-approved in every case, as well as being approved by parents or guardians. I would imagine it is difficult to work in an environment where you have to deal with some of the most self-abusive or violent children in the country. The constant tension to make sure your students aren't going to hurt themselves or someone else must be very tiring. Always fearing to turn your back on a student know to bite off an ear or a nose for no reason. So maybe some people should get off their high horses and get in the trenches.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 11:04 AM  

  • I thought I would take a moment to respond to your snide and flippant remarks about a Center that provides life saving treatment to students of parents who are very supportive. (see www.judgrc.org click on comments tab to view parents and students give testimony supporting GED)

    "I recently googled Filthy Child Abusers Inc.—oops, I meant the Judge Rotenberg Center—and noticed that a large number of help wanted ads came up in the results. Looks as if they may be having a problem with staff turnover. Hmmm, I wonder why? Maybe it's hard to find people who are so sickeningly depraved as to enjoy torturing disabled kids for a living?"

    Well as with all social service fields JRC has a large turnover of staff members. Simply put there are many people who come to work at JRC with visions of money only. Working with the most severely self-abusive and agreesive students from all over the country is difficult work and is simply not for everyone.

    "The sort of creativity that's needed here is a talent for inventing plausible explanations for injuries, such as claiming that burns from electrodes all over a child's body were caused by medical conditions."

    Reports of burns caused by the GED have all been unfounded. Apparently you are someone who believes everything you read in the paper to be fact. The truth is these former employees all have an apparent grudge against their former employer. These employees were all "mandated reporters" within the state and their failure to report this alleged abuses is illegal in its own right.

    "Staff at the Judge Rotenberg Center must also be able to repeat the Big Lie with a straight face, that is, the claim that electric shocks are necessary to prevent severely disturbed youths from maiming themselves through self-injury."

    How is it a lie when the leading research supporting PBS (Positive Behavior Supports) states that it is effective in reducing dangerous behaviors 80% of the time. What about the other 20%?

    "(For example, as reported by the Boston Herald, Antwone Nicholson, a teenager whose mother has filed a lawsuit against the Judge Rotenberg Center, was routinely shocked whenever he swore or did not cooperate.)"

    No lawsuit has been filed against JRC if you check your facts, as many papers have not done. The lawsuit that was filed was against the local school district that placed her son at JRC. This lawsuit is an obvious get-rich-quick scheme. (Hence the $10 million lawsuit) This woman pushed heavily for her son to be placed at JRC, she consented to the use of GED, a family member administered the GED on a home visit, and she withdrew consent a year and a half after the treatment was begun.

    "They're claiming that Antwone Nicholson had 5,000 violent episodes a week before they started shocking him. Let's get out our calculators, readers. There are 10,080 minutes in a week. That means the kid would've needed to have a "violent episode" every two minutes, around the clock, for an entire week, without ever stopping to eat, sleep, use the toilet, et cetera. No matter how creatively a "violent episode" may be defined, we're getting into the realm of mathematical impossibility here."

    No claim of 5000 violent episodes per week has been made. This number reflects distict occurances of dangerous and disruptive behaviors which can include: hitting, kicking, biting, spitting, sexual touching, etc.

    "By bothersome little annoyances like children screaming in extreme pain, multi-million dollar tort lawsuits, child abuse investigations, the occasional homicide investigation... "

    The GED does not deliver "extreme pain" as anyone who has had one can attest. It is a 2 second stimulation to a localized area that is intense enough to change behavior in order to avoid getting it again. There is no multi-million dollar tort lawsuit against JRC. Child abuse investigations occur at schools and hospitals around the country. What JRC can provide that other facilities cannot is digital footage of all classrooms and residences. We have thorough supervision of all employees at all times. We fully cooperate with any investigation and any staff members found acting inappropriately are terminated. There have been deaths of students who attended JRC (formerly BRI) and neither student was found to have died due to JRC's treatment procedures. JRC has strived to find the most effective, least restrictive aversive procedures and that is why GED is used and many other taste, sensory, and physical punishment aversives are no longer used

    "(No need to mention the disabled. They're not people, are they?)"

    I can think of no better way to treat someone as a person than to do things JRC does. Taking someone off debilitating psychotropic medications, allowing students to concentrate on learning, teaching valuable life, job, and social skills, etc.

  • Yeah, I'm sure Dr. Mengele thought he was providing a great service to the world, too.

    For those who are interested in reading about humane and respectful ways of dealing with young people who self-injure (a common problem that affects an estimated one to two million people in the United States), I recommend these blogs: Autismland (written by a mother of an autistic son who bangs his head) and Ballastexistenz (written by a non-speaking autistic adult who has a history of self-injury). The topic is also discussed sometimes on the parents' forum at Aspies for Freedom.

    I have edited the post to correct my inadvertent error in describing the Nicholson lawsuit.

    By Blogger abfh, at 9:31 AM  

  • I will never understand the point of hurting people who hurt themselves to get the point accross that hurting anyone is bad.

    JRC is evil. And *I* am ballsy enough to say what I think under my NAME, an IDENTITY, as opposed to the anonymous cowards who think child abuse is ok.

    And I'm 1 up on you, mommie dearest. I don't have to know what it's like to be the parent of a child who hurts themselves. I was the child. You don't know what that feels like to the child, nor can you accurately say whether a shock is painful, since your sensory system is vastly different from ours. And clearly it causes pain, otherwise the rationale is total BS-"they stop because it hurts" "oh but it doesn't hurt". There's a load of crap somewhere in there.

    Autistic people are QBE-qualified by experience. We know things the so called experts don't know YEARS earlier (the 'DUH' study of the week anyone?). So don't talk about that which you don't understand, mommie dearest. It makes you look foolish.

  • What i dont understan about this JRC (do a google search in news)is the way only 80 parents of over 200 speak out. How well can the children be treated if the employees are from retail working backgrounds or similar are trained for only 2 weeks on treating severaly dis-abled children with electric shock machines and english is there 2nd language?
    Never mind the food and other non-humane policies on there web site.
    But what can be done they have big laywers and friends in the state goverment. (a nephew of a rep is in JRC) Why are all ex-emplyoees considered dis-gruntled could it be they could not say anything until they left JRC because they have to eat also?

  • First and foremost I should mention that I am a "Mental Health Assistant" at JRC (JUdge Rotenberg Center). Id also like to mention that in training they allowed us to experience the GED (shock) devices our selves. In all honesty it did feel very uncomfortable and left a small mark the size of a dime on my arm. However keep in mind that we have students at this school that have gone completely blind in one eye due to their self destructive behavior. There are also students who have gone deaf in both ears and even bitten half of their tongue off. The center helps these students to be able to lead more prosperous lives. And personally I would rather experience a mild "shock once or twice a week, rather beat myself blind in one eye or chew completely through my cheek. You condesending, Ignorant, little narrow minded people who have written this obscene article that falsely represents what we here at JRC stand for ought to do a little research before placing such articles, or you run the risk of souding like a bunch of mis informed idiots. ( oh Dear i fear its too late)

    By Blogger KALIFORNIA, at 9:50 PM  

  • Kalifornia, before you claim that the students go on to lead more prosperous lives, I suggest you take a look at this comment from a mother, which was posted on Kevin Leitch's blog:

    "My adopted son was born with dual addiction, is now 20 years old and was at JRC for 4 years and unfortunately, he is worse than ever... my son has been in jail, on drugs, unable to hold a job and might end up back in jail as soon as next week for violating probation. How sad I am as a parent to have trusted JRC to help my son with his learning and behavior disabilities and he ended up worse than before."

    Looks like the only people leading more prosperous lives because of JRC are those who get their paycheck from it.

    By Blogger abfh, at 3:00 PM  

  • I have been associated with the institution for a year and I have never witnessed any incidences of torture. JRC is one of the most strict work places I know. The turnover in my opinion has more to do with the strictness than anything.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 9:32 PM  

  • To comment to Anonymous at 11:04 & 1:00...First, I would be anonymous also if I were a sick sadistic individual also! I am a mom of a child with ASD and I have watched those types of behaviors with my own child as well as with ohter's children & I can tell you first hand, yelling, spanking, ignoring, and other negative reinforcement only acts as "triggers" for these children, who unfortunately don't understand or manipulate the world the way "typical" people do! The key is to "reach" them...to bring what's inside out. There are also so many studies on positive reinforcement that actually changes the lives of these children in a positive way not institutionalized in abusive centers who pray on parents ignorance, total despair or their own sadistic beliefs. Another words if a parent believed beating their "typical" child to a pulp when she misbehaved was effective,should they have that right & DCYF should then support them in court rather than take their child??? So where are the rights of a disabled child who in turn don't even understand the way a "typical" child may??? My child made dramatic improvements because I learned how to understand his behaviour and way of thinking...I gave him patience & love and any therapy I could get from angencies that actually cared! I'm not saying it's easy because it's all on the parents to do this and it's sometimes a long wait for some therapies along w/ a lot of time & patience and some children do need to be in residential settings...but theres schools who don't abuse the students! I am appauled that our country allows this but not surprised that there are supporters because even Hitler had supporters, right??!!! I couldn't even imagine someone doing any of the cruel things JRC does to my child and it truely breaks my heart that other children are suffering this way! Don't believe the lie and you parents that have children there, you profs that work there and deliver these "therapies" should be ashamed of yourselves for being so ignorant & uneducated because these children suffer at your hands!!!!!next time ANONYMOUS, if you so firmly believe that torturing kids who can't help themselves is really all therapy & it's ok, DON'T HIDE!!!!!!!!

  • You know whats amazing about the staff at JRC as well. I know personally of staff and student relationships going on there. Staff members dating students,teachers!!! AMAZING AND DISGUSTING.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 12:34 PM  

  • I have spent some time reading the numerous reactions and comments on this website and I am truly shocked and appalled by some of the things I have read...

    Todays society seems to place an exaggerated need on things being done today, not tomorrow, but as soon as possible. Can we really believe that shocking, adverse tickling and social removal can change a person in a positive and fullfilling manner? Is fear not at the heart of this "STUDY". Do those of you out there supporting this really believe that two negatives make a positive?

    I am truly shocked that an INSTITUITION such as this is allowed to exist anywhere in the world let alone in the "land of the free and home of the brave" - it is incredible to me, an educator in a troubled Inner City school in NYC, that such devices and techniques are viewed as anything but torture and damaging.... Shame on the parents, shame on the staff and most of all shame on the government for not upholding the rights of these incredibly special and unique 'children'.

    The most disturbing thing is the level of training and expertise given and expected. During the 1950's Electroshock Therapy became common place in mental instituitions, as some results were found to be positive - I reitterate some... These treatments were given by Doctors with at least 8 years of training and as part of a nation wide study, that was wholly inconclusive. The fact that the staff administering these "treatments" to these children have had a 2 week induction period and are HIGH SCHOOL Graduates, not Psychologists or even medically trained professionals, is, at best, laughable.

    Shocked and appalled.

    Eddie the distraught

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 1:39 PM  

  • Where do I begin? I was first introduced to this 'school' last evening when I saw it on 'Dateline'. I have not been able to get it out of my mind since then....woke up to it this morning also. I can not find one positive thing to say about this place. It seems like a movie, or something being re-run from the '50's.

    The fact that this place is making $250,000 per year, per student, is absolutely unfathomable to me. Why would they release a student if they are getting that kind of money? Surely they could come up with excuses to keep a child just a little bit longer!

    Also, the 'shocking staff' gets 2 weeks of training, yet NO time, repeat, NO time being trained on the positive feedback children should receive. These are high school graduates being given devices to shock children who have no chance to speak up for themselves, be it because they are deaf, non verbal, or because if they speak up they will get shocked, slapped, 'aversively tickled'!!, physically restrained, or isolated!!

    What world are we living in that this is accepted, let alone LEGAL!?!?!?!?!

    Some of the parents and employees of the JRC will say that there are positive outcomes to this treatment. HOwever, these punishments only serve to frighten and permanently scare these children into practically vegetative states of being. They seem afraid to do any behavior, for fear of being shocked, or any of the other aforementioned tortures.

    What do the parents think will come of this after their children are 'released'? They will not be able to exist in the real world, because they will be scarred, physically and mentally, from this institution!

    Where are the senators, governors, doctors, psychologists, etc. who can actually shut this place down? Why, after the 2006 study by the NY State Dept of Education, which is 26 pages long, did the proper authorities not deem this inhumane treatment of people who cannot speak up for themselves?

    (http://boston.com/news/daily/15/school_report.pdf)

    We are a society that is possibly making spanking our own children illegal, yet we allow this to go on, paying other people to torture our children! Where is the overwheming outrage on this?

    Finally, before anyone comes down on me for advocating on the children's behalf, I DO work with children who have Autism, who bite themselves, bang their heads, etc. I have a Master's in Special Education, as well as a Master's in Speech Language Pathology, and have 8 years of full-time experience working with children with special needs. Not once have I ever thought that torturing them or inflicting further physical/mental harm would benefit them in the slightest.

    Can we please come together on this, fellow bloggers, and GET THIS PLACE SHUT DOWN!?!?!??!!?!

    Thank you for reading.

  • What ever happened to parents showing love to their children? That is the main problem. The main problem isn't the child, it's their parents who are fucked in the head. The parents gave up on their kids, and send them to this Abuse center. Maybe the parents should be the one's going to the center. Maybe the parents should be the ones questioning what the hell are they doing wrong? The problem is most of them don't know how to express love.

    My parents never showed me love in anyway. They were always busy with work, they never had time for me. I acted out on that, I was sent to JRC, I was abused at JRC.
    Not just with electrodes, but sexually abused as well.

    I finally was able to leave after begging my parents. They finally listened to me. For once.

    If there is any groups who are out there that I can talk too about my expereince at JRC. I would like to get in touch. Leave a website or something here.

    Judge Rotenberg Center - Close It Down!

    By Blogger abfh, at 1:11 PM  

  • Do you want to know why JRC has a hard time keeping its employees? Well let me tell you, from personal experience. JRC can't keep their employees because they treat them like they treat their students. Students are made to fear the staff and the staff are made to fear the policies and procedures. One little thing you do wrong and someone is all over you about it. Writing staff a PIO (performance improvement opportunity) is encouraged to all those employees who are looking to advance at JRC. But here's the catch... there really is no "advancement" at JRC. That's just what you are told and made to believe. Most of the Mental Health Assistants do not have any formal education, so they are drawn to work at JRC with the promise of a bigger pay check, advancement opportunities and tuition reimbursement. The only real thing that people will get when they work there, is a mental disorder themselves. If you or a family member are thinking about working for JRC or you are working for JRC, I say run for the hills and get out as fast as you can.

  • Just so all of you are aware, Judge Rotenberg's adult children were invited to the center to experience the aversives before they consented to allow the center to use their father's name. I can't imagine that adults would sanction 'torture' in the name of their father. And the 'Dr. Mengele' comment is way out of line when you're talking about a center named after a Jewish man.

    By Blogger Paula, at 9:35 PM  

  • Those who have been following the JRC know the recent prank was not a freak incident. The very fact that staff members would shock a student 77 times in three hours reveals deep flaws in the philosophy and culture of the Judge Rotenberg Center. Aversive shock treatment induces students to temporarily comply with directions out of fear of physical pain, but they revert to their former behaviors once the aversive is removed. Even B.F. Skinner, originator the technique, eventually denounced it. Painful aversive shock treatment, along with alleged methods like food deprivation and isolation, leaves only emotional trauma and distrust for authority. Americans are concerned about waterboarding of enemy combatants, yet our school boards fund an institution which straps our most psychologically fragile children to boards and shocks them repeatedly. This abusive practice, better described as torture, must end as soon as possible.

    We've started a group at Brandeis University, and hope to garner more widespread support. Please join our facebook group "Massachusetts Students United Against the Judge Rotenberg Center", or email me at lizaveta@brandeis.edu if you have any questions or would like to be put on our mailing list.

    If you'd like to take more immediate action, please call Governor Deval Patrick at 617-725-4005 (out of state) or 888-870-7770 (in state) and urge him to follow the lead of Washington D.C. mayor Adrian Fenty, who has promised to remove all D.C. students from the Judge Rotenberg Center.

  • Well, there was definitely alot to read on this freakin site. I'm actually glad that I opened this page this morning. I'm a student in jrc. This place holds so much contradication it's crazy. I've experienced so much abuse from these people it's crazy. I've never been on the GED shock devices, but I know someone here that was shocked 77 times and they think it's okay(JrC). I've witnessed everything from abuse(hardcore)staff having sex with students/relationships,extortion,
    drug dealing, you name it and JRC does it. This place I would agree needs be shut down. They have staff working in jrc that have the same issues we have.
    I would like to give a comment on the surviors of those who left this hell hole, if there is anyway you would like to contact me my email address is below. We Need to Shut This Place Down.!
    To my friend that took those 77 shocks big props my dude! Never give up! No one in this world can fail you. To all my JRC peers I feel for you 100%, but you got survive it,don't let jrc be your life or home. DON'T LET NO ONE BREAK YOU!! !! ms.sassyee@gmail.com
