I was not fired from FSU. Anyone with a sincere interest in learning the truth who has any doubts about this is free to email me and if you are willing to disclose your name and a verifiable affiliation with an academic instution or other agency, I will provide you with the names of references who I have worked with at FSU that will refute these lies and verify that I left in good standing. I graduated with my PhD and that is why I no longer teach there. FSU social work has a policy against hiring their own graduates for faculty positions for 5 years after graduation. I left in good standing as a student, a teacher and a researcher and have solid references, including one from the Associate Dean who is in charge of the teaching to prove it. These references will confirm that I am a hard working, stable, productive individual who got along with students and faculty very well, contrary to the misportrayals of me on this site by people who have their own vendetta against me because of the scholarly criticism I published on their favored form of therapy. Instead of refuting me, they engage in nasty personal attacks and lies about me.
So people can decide if they want to believe an anonymous coward, or my references. Also see:
which lists doctoral student accomplishments for 2008 and 2009, showing that I had more peer reviewed publications listed than any doctoral student in social work and none had anything to do even remotely with Scientology and only one was in any way related to TFT. This refutes the lie that all I write about is Scn and TFT.
This is great inside reporting keep up the good work. The Red Pill is sending Tom a letter and support.
fuck off, pig
Speaking as a recruiter, we need military in our school. Majority of the students we test don’t even qualify. The scores are at an all time low and if not they have a felony for pulling a fire alarm in school. There are many benefits that the military can offer students. It’s just another option we are proposing to the student since the parents can’t do it for then. It’s about military awareness in there sheltered world. As far as the homophobic slur, it was totally uncalled for if this is what happened. Just because one of our own might have said it, does not mean we all say it. It’s like saying all of a certain race is lazy or dirty. No matter what the situation, we still need written consent from both parents if child is 17. If there 18, its their decision and call to make. Let today’s generation stand up to what they believe and do there share in defending you and your right to freedom of speech. GO NAVY!!!
And she was fired from FSU, perhaps for her deep involvement with Scientology, Thought Field Therapy, and with that fringe loony group, Advocates for Children in Therapy (See httpx://psychology.wikia.com/wiki/Advocates_for_Children_in_Therapy )
The DOC cares for nothing other then the perpetuation of its budget! The Colorado DOC is one of the most corrupt organizations I have ever had the misfortune to see up close. They lie about correctional science and cherry pic both the data and people who aply correctional science--Peggy Heal is an example of a DOC figure who lies to the legislature and has manipulated prisoners with the sole aim of increasing their time. Kim English is another at DOC a woman whose data--she is a statistics person--has regularly been proved wrong, yet they use her data and not the acurate national data because it suites the DOC's agenda of never let anyone go unless you have to.
Here are some Colorado facts:
Colorado’s prison population has grown 604% since 1980, while the population of the state grew by only 59%.
The odds of a male born in 2001 going to prison during his lifetime are: 1 in 3 for African Americans, 1 in 6 for Latinos, and 1 in 17 for Caucasians.
The State of Colorado spends more on corrections than on higher education.
Colorado is a Balanced Budget state so our state constitution requires that we balance our budget every year. As a result, every $1 spent on corrections is $1 we cannot spend elsewhere.
Here is the link to direct quotes from people who claim to be "helping orphans". Verbally, physically, and emotionally abusing "orphans", adopted and foster children would be more like it in my opinion and in the case of Candace Newmaker, murder that the so-called therapists did hard time in prison for.
Scroll down for a list of these so-called orphan helpers and the readers can read statements in their own words they made and decide for themselves whether they think they're helping or abusing in the name of "therapy".
And if you want to have a conversation about censorship, these therapists have repeatedly unsuccessfully tried to invoke DMCA to have these fair use quotes removed. What are they trying to hide? DMCA procedure was followed, the pages were brought down for the required period of time and then went right back up because the DMCA violation charges were baseless for these fair use quotes, but that doesn't stop them from trying. Note there is a world of difference between censoring direct fair use quotes and the completely manufactured bald face lies that are being spread all over the internet about me.
There is no evidence that your so-called "life work" is actually "helping orphans" -- actually we're talking about internationally adopted children here. Observe how they use the word "orphan" as if that is supposed to make them automatically good people who cannot be challenged. Well I am challenging you because so-called "attachment therapy" intensives carried out by people who trained at attachment therapy institutes have actually led to the death of children. So yes, I will speak out against this and rest assured that your personal smear campaign and lies against me will not cause me to back down, not one iota. Rest assured of that. When I see orphans and adopted children being subject to abusive interventions, I will call that to the attention of the public. I have every right to express my opinions about this and will continue to do so when people claim their interventions "help" and yet have no randomized controlled clinical trials to support their efficacy or even their safety.
Yes, please do search my name but critically thinking people understand that just because something comes up on a web search, that does not make it necessarily true. What comes up on Google searches is the all out smear campaign that has been conducted against me. For you to then self reference this as if it is evidence is ludicrous. As Judge Judy says, "Don't pee on my leg and tell me it's raining". Here are the facts people should read first if they Google me:
Every colleague I have in the scientific mental health community who I have shared this smear campaign against me with has agreed that the people making these postings are the ones who are obviously quite mentally imbalanced who are upset with me because I published scholarly critricism in peer reviewed journals about their attachment therapies.
This is Monica Pignotti. The above comments only prove the all out smear campaign that exist on the internet. It's fine if you want to call me "nuts", as that is an opinion and you have the right to express your opinion about me. However, when you libel me and Florida State University and make factually false statements (that I invented a device that I did not in fact invent and that doesn't even exist) that qualifies as libel. Your right to free speech gives you the right to express that you think I'm "nuts". It does not give you the right to post malicious lies about me. The website http://www.childrenintherapy.org is not on child torture. It is a website opposed to child torture that exposes child torture that masquerades as "therapy". I do not run that website, however, or any other websites on the topic to that is a false statement.
The Larry Sarner voting machine case was not a "swindle" -- Sarner never had any criminal charges against him. It was a civil lawsuit over a business dispute.
And for the record, I left Scientology over 33 years ago and severed my ties against TFT over 5 years ago and am a critic of both. You see, the difference between me and the folks who are attacking me is that I left the cult I was in 33 years ago and severed my ties with TFT as well, as you are still involved with your bogus therapy cult. These people are upset with me because I have exposed and criticized a dangerous therapy that has killed children. They have no effective rebuttal except to engage in a malicious, libelous smear campaign and throw tantrums when it gets deleted. But by all means feel free to call me "nuts" all you'd like. It only shows your ignorant stereotyping of people who get involved in cults and leave them. For my rebuttal to that, see:
R-Fed didn't say the arrest records were fake, but rather expunged. Two different things. Anyone who wants to can read quotes from those "helping orphans" at this URL: httpx://childrenintherapy.org/proponents/index.html (remove the X, obviously) Read those and tell me if those are the people you want with you or against you.
Pignotti runs a site on child torture with Larry Sarner and Linda Rosa of Loveland.
Sarner scammed investors out of millions on a voting machine swindle back in the 80s. He and his wife Linda Rosa ended up bankrupt. Sarner appealed, with a conspiracy theory worthy of the X-Files. He went so far as to say a judge was stealing from him!
The judge refused to hear it and Sarner lost.
Since then, he, Pignotti, Jean Mercer and Charly D. Miller have attacked people whose life's work is helping orphans. Can't they find anything better to do?
We are interested to set up community radio station for our school and want cost, implementation, funding opportunity etc. for our NGO.Please do the needful. Regards, Bijaya satapathy Voice:91-9861128546 Landline:916742597539 email:firstname.lastname@example.org
this is exactly how the current system works, you as some who is not into extreme sports pay's for someone like me through your monthly payments. from this explanation it seems in truth what you "pay" through taxes should be less since all of the uninsured will also need to contribute. from my understanding the government will not be allowed to "ration certain types of care" as long as the people do not allow this to occur, either through legislation or through the media. keeping a bright light on this will help ensure it is legit. you cannot do this with a corporation. just an opinion though
She's something of a hypocrite. She's supported publication of fabricated arrest records in the name of free speech. She's done her own parodies that mde the "Pignotron" look tame.
She's also said she wished the Internet had never been invented.
She is a former Scientologist and practitioner of Roger Callhan's "thought field therapy" and "voice technology" which involve tapping and secret algorithms.
Thanks to all who quickly resolved this issue. Bash Back! Denver 2010 Woohoo.

The problem seems to have been that both the comments and input filter associated with the article were somehow reset to a more restrictive level than COIMC's default. The two settings occupy similar positions, so my guess is that it was a mis-click made either when the post was promoted or during some other editing. Fortunately, this means that nothing was lost content-wise - I've reset the two options to their defaults, and have confirmed that both images and comments are once again working on the post.
To my knowledge the only image "policy" that exists is an informal editorial one, wherein extremely large images are sometimes moved "below the fold" of a story. This is done not out of any sense of censorship, but in order to maintain reasonable load times for COIMC's front page. None of the photographs in the post about Bash Back!'s convergence run afoul of this criterion, however, and even if they did removing them would never be an acceptable solution.
It appears that the filters for the post were accidentally set to strict (and normally unused) level, probably by a mis-click during editing or when the post was promoted to the front page. Comments (which are enabled by default on COIMC) probably got reset at the same time. Both misconfigurations occupy a similar position in the settings list, so it seems likely that they were reset at the same time.
In any event, we've edited the post settings to restore the defaults. We sincerely apologize for any problems and misunderstandings this may have caused, and would like to thank everyone who brought the problem to our attention.
I am a sight Administrator for COIMC and I am shocked!! I saw the post on the news wire today and promoted it to the front page when I saw it and now having come back to the site I see that the pictures are gone and your comment. I am only one person and I can't speak for all who work to make COIMC what it is but I can say that I feel this is wrong!!! I will find out NOW!! what happened and correct this!!
yeah wtf is the deal yo?
i'm ashamed to say i don't know exactly what CO IMC's (and IMCs in general) rules are regarding nudity in photos.
please contact email@example.com and request the return of the photos of an adequate explanation that is horizontally accountable to the community.
i mean really, come for the first few days and take off in time to get to the G20. that's also a great way to head east if you're going to the RRR in Maine.
i've found that no matter when you schedule something it always conflicts with something else really important going down. last year WRFF conflicted with the BB! Convergence
anyways it can at least serve as a way-station for travelers headed to the G20. if you're coming through the Southwest on your way there, come by and see us!
