Demanding Duggar Cradle to Troubled Teen Home: Overcoming the Baptist Myth of Family

3,543 views

Published on

JULY 1 2016 Panel at ICSA Annual Conference

Cable television's Learning Channel publicizes the wholesome facade of family through the Duggar Family's "19 Kids and Counting" show, but few viewers understand the dark underbelly of their formulaic, high demand ideology. Considering this reality show family as a prototype and their deep roots in the Independent Baptist movement, this presentation will delve into the variety of extreme measures used to enforce their panacea of a mythical family ideal.

With a special focus on corporal punishment and the incarceration of children in "troubled teen industry" homes, two Second Generation Adult survivors of this system will recount their experiences within this religious movement. This presentation specifically endeavors to highlight the unique recovery needs of those who have endured the profound trauma of the Baptist residential teen home experience. Janet Heimlich will explore the challenges of addressing and preventing this variety of Religious Child Maltreatment.
