I think you guys will get a kick out of this. thank you heard through the grapevine that TLP was trying to contact him, so he gave them a call. They offered him a job.... as a behavior management tech, i.e. someone to do restraints. I think we're both still sitting here with- our jaws on the floor. He looked at me and asked: "Is it a good thing they offered me a job?" I thought about it a second and decided that, yes, it is, in a twisted difficult child-world Twilight Zone kind of way, especially considering the state he was in 3 years ago when he walked out of there. But on the other hand.... it explains so much about the place, LOL (didn't say that to him). Needless to say, he declined. He's still working on psychiatric degree, but I think he's about over Residential Treatment Center (RTC)/TLP settings.
