Weberman trial:Mother paid $12.8 K for "therapy"

 NY Post    If she stopped seeing her alleged abuser, she would have been expelled from school.

The mother of a teenage Brooklyn girl who was allegedly sexually abused by a prominent Hasidic leader testified yesterday that she was forced by her daughter’s yeshiva to send the girl to the man for counseling — and even had to pay for the dubious privilege.

    Let this be a lesson for everyone in the frum world who tries to take the easier road and think they can buy their way out problems as if they were giving a "pidyon" to a rebbe to "save" them, that it is a waste of timeto go to a rabbi or unqualified counselor who has no degrees and no training in this complicated area of treating people, that it's reckless and like an offering to the molech.

    Go to proper licensed and highly experienced academically and professionally qualified psychotherapists. Satmar and all groups should advise people about the NEFESH organization and its members all over America and services like the Yitti Leibel Help Line that can and do refer frum people to reliable mental health professionals.
