The Parent Project/Changing Destructive Adolescent Behavior

Anybody have any experience with this?

My DS's psychiatrist recommended it due to his violence towards me and general lack of respect for me or acknowledgement of consequences/rules applying to him.

In our local area, one does the course partially over a weekend, and then through six weekly sessions. They also recommend a weekend boot camp type experience for the whole family. Very hard core. Kids have to earn the right to a blanket, food, etc.

I have not heard about it, but I will google it and see if I have an impression that would be useful one way or another.

The wilderness programs for kids scare me, and the adult programs too. Too many deaths. Personally I would stay away from a program that involves abuse. To have to earn food, a blanket...that sounds harsh.
