ABA – Craig Childress


Do you know how amazing this ABA data is? No. That’s because you’re heathen savages – savages I say.

This is absolutely amazing in multiple ways. When the Wheel turns on this pathology in the family courts and the world reorients into reality… professional people are going to be amazed by two things about this data, first Dorcy, then Dr. Childress.

It will be an unfolding amazement. I’m actually more amazing than Dorcy, but it unfolds through layers. Dorcy shifts context to shift brain states. I’m inside your brain changing your brain networks directly, tweaking things here, fiddling with that regulatory thing over there.

I know your brain. I’m in your brain. As long as I’m here, I might as well do some helpful stuff to tidy-up the untidy.

Dorcy Pruter is Amazing

First… Amazing number one is Dorcy’s High Road workshop (B phase), she recovered a child from three years of documented child psychological abuse, documented by three separate psychologists across the three year span… in two days.

That’s it, in two days she completely recovered the 15-year-old child from three years of documented child psychological abuse.

Two days is all it took. That is drop-dead amazing, there is NO psychotherapy for anything that fixes anything in two days, are you kidding me? That is amazing – stunningly amazing.

In psychotherapy we talk in weeks or months, not days, and certainly not days to a full and complete recovery – of anything.

It’s because what she does is not psychotherapy. Dorcy uses a different approach, the High Road workshop uses a different change-agent approach to recovery.

It’s simple, it’s elegant, it’s way-way effective – look at that rapid-rise in the B phase over just two days, from 1s and 2s (awful) right before the workshop, to 5s and 6s (wonderful) by the end of two days… two days – of her typical 4-day workshop.

Wrap your head around that for added amazement. Dorcy is so exceptionally talented at recovering children and families that she could adapt her typical 4-day workshop to get a recovery of normal-range bonding and functioning in two days when she needs to… a recovery that remained stable for a full week after the workshop with no additional support while I was away in the Netherlands and before I could start my Second A phase follow-up therapy.

Dr. Childress is Amazing

That’s the second amazing thing… me. My data is a sleeper amazing thing but boy is it amazing. It’s in those 12 circled numbers at different points on the wiggly-wiggly lines.

Blue is the attachment system. Gold is emotional regulation. Silver is mood and arousal: Affection (Aff), Cooperation (Co), and Social Involvement (SI). The Parent Child Relationship Rating Scale (Childress, 2015) is an amazing outcome measure (three amazing things).

Look how Blue and Gold were out-of-synch at the start, then look how in-synch they are after my first therapy session at (5). I entrained the emotional regulation networks to the attachment system in my first session – that is amazing – and the data shows it – that is amazing data.

I’m in the child’s brain working the child’s neurological networks. I have something to say about each of those 12 circled numbers. I know exactly what I’m doing, and I can explain it in detail.

Did I want the blue and gold lines to synchronize from my intervention in the first session? Yes, I wanted to entrain the emotional regulation networks with the attachment networks, with attachment guiding emotional regulation.

The only thing I didn’t know at the time was how exquisitely sensitive the Parent-Child Relationship Rating Scale is to the functioning of the various brain systems that it would show my work. I crafted an incredibly wonderful outcome measure in the PC-RRS.

My work ripples across days in the networks of the person’s brain – and weeks, sometimes months. Typically not years, not in just one session. To do things that would ripple for years would take at least three sessions, and the context would need to be right.

The key mid-points in the data set are (6) and (7), these points are two and three days respectively after my session at data point (5). First, right before the three-system integration, there’s that beautiful V-drop of all three systems into a consolidation point at (6), then a bounce-back into an absolutely perfectly amazing three-system integration point at (7).

That’s about as good as it gets. There’s your standard, therapists of the future – match that V-drop and three system integration in the attachment system, emotional regulation networks, and mood & arousal networks.

Then, after the three-system integration, there is a perfect synchronous entrainment of the emotional regulation networks to the attachment networks, with attachment over (guiding) emotional regulation… all before the second session. How did I do that?

These are daily ratings from the targeted-mom. Targeted parents have zero reason to under-report symptoms. If there’s a problem, they want to fix it so they’ll say there’s a problem.

She was rating 3-4-5s normal-range, even into 6s and 7s wonderful-range sometimes. The 15-year old young man only dropped to 2 twice, once at data point (3) and once at (11). Look what happened after the two data-points because the two 2-ratings are different from one another.

The first 2-drop at (3) was before I began my work at (5). The second 2-drop at (11) was because of a thing I gave him to think about in our second therapy session at (10).

That first 2-drop at (3), and the subsequent recovery and stabilization, is entirely on Dorcy’s High Road workshop – I hadn’t started my therapy work until (5). They had a problem and recovered even before I started my work. Dorcy got a full, complete, and stable recovery of the parent-child attachment bond… in just two days.

I saw that the emotional regulation networks (gold) were not entrained on the attachment networks (blue) so I did something in my first treatment session to fix that.

That’s what occurred at the three-system integration point at (7) – which had been preceded by a nice consolidation V at (6). Those two, the V-drop at (6) and the bounce-back at (7), were the entrainment of emotional regulation networks on the attachment networks.

I did something in session one that rippled in the child’s brain networks for days – changing things – integrating things, until it all came together at (7), and the emotional regulation networks became perfectly entrained on the attachment networks, with attachment higher (guiding emotional responding).

That’s a perfect entrainment of emotional regulation and attachment after (7). The only reason it separated at (11) is because I did something in my next therapy session at (10) – i gave him something to consider, not overtly, just in his networks.

He figured it out, which is the way-big bounce-back that followed.

Replicate the Single-Case Research

I can tell you what is happening in the child’s brain at all 12 circled numbers. You’re just not curious yet. I’ll wait.

You don’t even appreciate the implications of the dramatic B phase recovery achieved by the High Road workshop. Stunningly amazing – yet entirely ignored by all the mental health people out there.

That’s pretty amazing too. I’ll be talking about the lack of motivation once we get this pathology fixed. It’s a motivational pathology, and it has a social-distribution feature.

A single-case ABA is research-based proof that the intervention is effective. The only methodological problem with the single-case design is it’s only one child. Will it work with another child or is it something unique about this particular child?

So do it again – replicate the research. On any High Road workshop, continue to collect the Parent-Child Relationship Rating Scale (Childress, 2015) to complete the ABA design.

Dorcy collects her High Road data on every workshop. Just collect the follow-up data to see what happens after the workshop ends. Does the child regress back to 1s and 2s once the workshop ends? Or is the recovery she achieves to a normal-range relationship and normal-range functioning (3-4-5) stably maintained following the High Road workshop?

Collect the data and find out – each time. That’s the advantage of a single-case research design… it has clinical application. A single-case ABAB research design applied to clinical practice is considered the highest caliber of clinical care.

It combines an empirical research study with clinical care to prove – prove – that the treatment intervention is effective in resolving the problem each time – with that specific case. That is the highest quality of clinical care, to document with data the treatment’s success.

Amazing Data – Amazing Truth

The High Road single-case ABA is amazing data. I’ve worked major NIMH research, I was in charge of all-things data at Keith Neuchterlein’s NIMH research at UCLA. I’ve worked with Jim Swanson’s MTA team at UCI. I know research, I know data.

The High Road single-case ABA clinical research is amazing. It will unfold in its amazing in layers of comprehension.

Everyone fights about everything over here. Currently Dr. Childress is alone. The pathogen wants to keep Dr. Childress and AB-PA hidden so no one knows. That won’t last. The fighting surrounding me will subside as the pathogen’s lies fall away and the truth remains.

An amazing truth. First… there’s the amazing truth of Dorcy Pruter and the High Road workshop. Then there’s the amazing truth of 12 circled numbers in the therapy of Dr. Childress.

Then there’s the amazing truth of the sensitivity and wonderfulness of the Parent-Child Relationship Rating scale as an outcome measure.

Then comes the amazing truth of AB-PA – the Diagnostic Checklist for Pathogenic Parenting and the Parenting Practices Rating Scale – that provide a standardized, reliable, and valid assessment protocol for the pathology in the family courts.

Conduct the Research – Be Amazed

Where’s the research on the accuracy of the predictions made by AB-PA? Do the research and you’ll have it.

I’m a clinical psychologist in private practice – I know research but I don’t do research, that’s not what clinical psychologists do. We do assessment, diagnosis, and treatment – others do the research.

I gave you research anyway just to get you started – and research is not even what I do. I’ve lapped the forensic psychologists and PAS experts several times. They haven’t even made it to the first turn and I’m already over the finish line – it is solved. That’s the truth.

You just need to do it.

You want research from a clinical psychologist? I’ve given you the High Road single-case ABA as proof – there’s the research – we presented the High Road single-case ABA directly to the American Psychological Association in 2019 in a peer-reviewed paper, peer-reviewed by the president of Division 24 Society for Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology.

I’m a clinical psychologist in private practice. I’ve done my job. I’ve given you the diagnosis worked out in detail, and I’ve given you the diagnostic assessment protocol. I’ve even identified the required treatment for you – court-adapted DBT (Linehan) informed by the attachment treatment of EFT (Johnson).

I can do things you cannot yet comprehend – like synchronize your brain networks… just by interacting with you… and you have no idea I’m doing it when I’m doing it (am I doing it now?), just like for days after my therapy the child rippled the impact until the three-system consolidation at point (7)… three days later.

My work ripples within and across time. I’ve been telling you, I work about three to five years ahead, sometimes more, sometimes less. It depends on what’s needed.

I’ve fixed the systems dysfunction here in the family courts and within professional psychology. I’ve solved the pathology in the family courts and fixed it. You just don’t listen – yet.

The moment, the very instant the paradigm shift to AB-PA occurs… the pathology is solved for everyone everywhere.

Try it.

The Paradigm Shift to AB-PA

Start by using the Diagnostic Checklist for Pathogenic Parenting – start by simply collecting that for all children in family court conflict. You don’t need to do anything else… just routinely and consistently collect the three Diagnostic Indicators of AB-PA for all cases of court-involved family conflict… and see what happens as a result.

Things will change… and everything will be fixed. Watch. Try it. You’ll see. Everyone here fights-and-fights about everything. Once the fighting ends and you’re open to a solution… then solve it.

AB-PA as described in Foundations (Childress, 2015) is a 100% true and accurate description of the pathology. What’s true is true. None of AB-PA is Dr. Childress, that’s why it’s true.

You all want to fight about everything. If you want to fight about AB-PA, take it up with Bowlby, Minuchin, Beck, van der Kolk, Tronick, Kohut, and the DSM-5. Because that’s what AB-PA is, I’m not here.

All of AB-PA is simply the established scientific and professional knowledge of the discipline applied. If you don’t agree with the established knowledge of professional psychology, take it up with the established knowledge.

There are amazing things that unfold in layers once someone has the curiosity to look. No one has the curiosity to look yet. They don’t want to solve anything yet. When they want to solve things, then they’ll look, and the solution will unfold once they are motivated.

It’s a motivational pathology – the attachment system is a motivational system – attachment pathology is a pathology in motivation. AB-PA is an indicator.

They are not motivated yet.

Be amazed, because there’s some amazing things. The pathogen fights and fights to hide. We will be calming the fight-and-fight, and when it calms… things will happen.

Looking Backwards in Time

Once this is done and you’re looking back from everything solved to where we were… you will see the path we took. You will be amazed, you had no idea what was happening.

I did. Storms come. Storms go. I’m the bringer of storms that come, and when the storm leaves you will have a solution. A solution to what? To everything you need a solution for.

It will be an unfolding process. Some things will remain dormant beneath the surface of your possible awareness until the proper context arrives to release them, then they will ripple out in their impact.

The entry point for the amazement is the High Road single-clase ABA data. Replicate the ABAB single-case research with each High Road workshop. Personally, I’d recommend you do it formally as part of a research collaboration with CCPI. Collaborate with CCPI and do the research.

Dorcy’s a businesswoman and family coach, not a university researcher person. Dr. Childress is a clinical psychologist, not a university researcher investigator.

The university research investigators need to conduct research on the High Road workshop. The university research investigators need to conduct research on the diagnostic model of AB-PA.

Collect the data. If you simply collect the symptom data using the Diagnostic Checklist for Pathogenic Parenting, the pathology in the family courts will be solved. Watch.

Just do it and be amazed. Collect the data from the Diagnostic Checklist for Pathogenic Parenting routinely for each child in family court custody conflict… and everything will unfold into solutions.

Don’t believe me? Try it. Just try it. There is no harm in just collecting the data in every case. See what happens when you do this, when you simply collect the data from the Diagnostic Checklist for Pathogenic Parenting (Childress, 2015).

You’ll be amazed at what happens. Do it and then look at the result to see what happens.

Try it. See what happens. You’ll be amazed.

I have joined with many parents affected with the surreal , yet accepted issue of child abuse via Pathogenic Parenting / Domestic abuse. As a survivor of Domestic Abuse, denial abounded that 3 sons were not affected. In my desire to be family to those who have found me lacking . As a survivor of psychiatric abuse, therapist who abused also and toxic prescribed medications took me to hell on earth with few moments of heaven. I will share my life, my experiences and my studies and research.. I will talk to small circles and I will council ; as targeted parents , grandparents , aunts , uncles etc. , are denied contact with a child for reasons that serve the abuser ...further abusing the child. I grasp the trauma and I have looked at the lost connection to a higher power.. I grasp when one is accustomed to privilege, equality can feel like discrimination.. Shame and affluence silences a lot of facts , truths that have been labeled "negative". It is about liberation of the soul from projections of a alienator , and abuser ..
