    Cedu school survivor

    Alison Weaver is a survivor of Cascade School in Whitmore California-- a place that used Cedu cult lingo, techniques, and philosophy in "treatment" of disaffected teens and pre-teens.

    [Cedu was bought out by The Brown Schools. Cedu and Brown Schools yielded Aspen and WWASPS. All of them use a group confrontational forum or workshops based on EST now called The Forum].

    A cautionary tale for parents who are considering the "services" of an "independent educational consultant" in order to "help" their "troubled teens". Old hippies, mature teens and young adults will also enjoy this book.

    PS I agree with Alison Weaver that her special word should have been power.

    A Powerful memior

    Amazingly well written. Validates the hurt that we may expereince, even if there is no one specific horrific event that defines the emotions we feel. A well stated description of some of the 'programs' that have excisted for teenagers.

    A must read!

    A wonderful memoir. The writing is dark, raw, bitter and remorseless. Weaver tells her harrowing story with grace and a shocking amount of honesty.
