The Troubled Teen Industry w/ Caroline Lorson
Caroline Lorson is a survivor of the troubled teen industry. At the age of 14, she was forcibly removed from her home in Southern California by two transporters and was flown across the country to a lockdown behavior modification school in Upstate New York. Caroline stayed at this facility for 29 months and was stripped of all of her human rights and subjected to coercive thought reform techniques. It took Caroline years to recover from her experience and she now actively works to reform the troubled teen industry through the Breaking Code Silence organization and her podcast, Inside the Program. Breaking Code Silence is a movement organized by a network of survivors and activists to raise awareness of the problems in the Troubled Teen Industry, and the need for reform. Caroline shares some of the devastating experiences of survivors of the "High Impact" facilities run by World Wide Association of Specialty Programs and Schools (WWASP) She goes on to reveal how the dangerous "Troubled Teen" industry remains unregulated because of political corruption and explains how the #breakingcodesilence project aims to put an end to it. Before You Go: Rachel sends a message to survivors of the unregulated "Troubled Teen" Industry. Thanks to our newest Patreon supporters: Nic Bishop, Jenny Shelton and Jennifer Parson.
