Wilderness therapy programs

Until recently, I was not aware that behaviour modification was a cia program.  Thank you for explaining about the wilderness programs.  Sadly there seems to be a various spectrum of behaviour mod. programs peppered throughout government agencies (internationally), that have launched over the course of time.  Tactics used depend on the targeted group.

In my former line of work (years ago with autistic adults), it was mandatory  for staff to attend behaviour mod. training & implement certain techniques, along with administration of medication to clients.  As program supervisors, we were led to believe that these methods were the most conducive  .... and intended to replace  practices (mk ultra) formerly used by institutions such as Valley View, and Weyburn mental hospitals  of Saskatchewan. 

We had learned that people were being admitted into institutions against their will, many falsely diagnosed with a mental deficit . 

My former employer ( program director), an intelligent woman with a slight cerebral palsy, had spent her entire childhood at Valley View.

Several years prior to my employment with this government organization, I had a friend who was on maternity leave from her work as a social worker.  She explained  a "holding technique"  as part of her behaviour mod practice.  She and her co-workers were instructed to use a "straight jacket hold" on clients/children who displayed extreme behaviour, such as a tantrum, until they stopped the behaviour.
