Indeed these children , have been abused , fleeing abuse
then separated , and jailed like animals , sexually abused,
medicated, nutritionally abused, as well as separated from
parent(s) , relatives that is all they know .
Everything in the world .
So yes the avoidable FACT , is that all forms of Post
Traumatic Stress Disorder are induced , indeed a
Human Rights Violation .
The same results have been showing up for many years,
decades , and can no longer be ignored , will not be ignored .
Families are being erased , all that constitutes healthy family
foundations , in lieu of cashing in the many who profit
or as many professionals are lacking factual education,
and unfortunate result of a declining educational system .
Of repressed facts , of the adulteration of values , of faith
of nutrition, of our bodies and minds , which corporations
created chemicals for via RX , and physicians , following
the model of psychiatry, began the intense addiction of
folks , unknown to them…It was referred to as mental illness
these many varieties , induced trauma , ignoring and
blaming / targeting 1 person , as in my case supporting
my abuse by the partner who never was.
Results for our children , our collective children , are varied .
The possible results are the same for those children , snatched
by Child Protective Services ,
Children who fly under the radar , in secrets family/social
support , in knowing or unknowing .
As well as immigration children , held in HELL on Earth .
Of course this demands attention , as it is ..
My personal intention to highlight this malicious,
malignant, high conflict , DomesticAbuseChildAbuse
through education , and legislation.
Until then, we Stand ..©️
Blessings & Peace 😘🙏🏼♥️☮️
Not a fan of Ms Baker , I offer a view of C-PTSD and more resulting from
The trauma pathogen prevents the brain from using logical reasoning and foresight.
Reasoning, foresight, and anticipating the future, are impossible for the trauma-impacted brain. Instead, it is fear oriented (amygdala driven rather than frontal lobe oriented) and they are now-oriented toward survival and anxiety-management rather that future-oriented through reasoning, planning.
So as we discuss implications of recent developments, here’s where we stand.
The methodology of all child forensic evaluations are in violation of Standard 9.01a of the APA ethics code, the methodology is invalid.
There is no inter-rater reliability. If an assessment procedure is not reliable – it cannot be valid. Child custody evaluations are not a valid assessment of anything.
Is tape recording sessions, reporting the transcript without professional analysis using any constructs from professional psychology, and writing recommendations that are not grounded in any established psychological constructs and principles a valid assessment of anything? No.
It is the opinion of one person based on no established constructs and principles. It is no more valid than asking your next door neighbor to make recommendations for custody.
The methodology – the methodology developed by forensic psychology for a “child custody evaluation” is in violation of many standards of the APA ethics code. Standard 9.01a regarding assessment, Standard 2.04 requiring the application of professional knowledge, Standard 3.04 on harm to the client, and Principle D of the APA ethics code regarding Justice.
I am required – required – by Standard 1.04 of the APA ethics code to “informally” contact the psychologist who’s practice is of concern to bring my concerns to their attention.
1.04 Informal Resolution of Ethical Violations
When psychologists believe that there may have been an ethical violation by another psychologist, they attempt to resolve the issue by bringing it to the attention of that individual.
That means that when I a serving as a consulting clinical psychologist for CRM or independently for an attorney and client and I review a child custody evaluation report, I am required by the Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct of the American Psychological Association – which is a legally binding to me through my licensing board – to notify whoever wrote the report notifying them of my concerns.
My informal recommendation to the psychologist will be to stop doing child custody evaluations.
Now, here’s the important thing to understand. They should already know this. They should not have to be told, and they do not have to be told. They are all in violation of the APA ethics code today. All of them.
I’m going to be unpacking 3.04a Harm to the client shortly. That one is devastating to forensic psychology. Psychologists are not allowed to hurt anyone. Anyone. Not even terrorists Notice 3.04b.
(b) Psychologists do not participate in, facilitate, assist, or otherwise engage in torture, defined as any act by which severe pain or suffering, whether physical or mental, is intentionally inflicted on a person, or in any other cruel, inhuman, or degrading behavior that violates 3.04(a).
That came from the “enhanced interrogation techniques” used after 911. The APA said no, we cannot consult (“participate”) in harming anyone – even terrorists.
Targeted parents are people. Are you hurt by the recommendations of the custody evaluator?
It doesn’t matter if there was a “greater good” justification… that’s what Standard 3.04b directly addresses, a “greater good” justification NEVER works. We are not allowed to hurt anyone.
Were you – are you – will you be – hurt by the recommendations of the custody evaluator. They are not allowed to hurt you with their recommendation – Standard 3.04.
All of forensic psychology – all the custody evaluators – have also been in violation of Standard 3.04a of the APA ethics code on Harm to the client.
And they do not need to be told. They needed to know. Past tense. Too late now, I’m reading their report, the harm is done. The only question now is what to do about violation of the APA ethics codes, Standards 3.04a, 9.01a, and 2.04?
For each and every child custody report I read.
David with a rock.

A government report found the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy caused serious mental health problems in detained children.
