USA: State governor issues order to regulate shock therapy at Judge Rotenberg Centre

Posted 29/7-11 at 00.20

On 22nd of July arguments were heard at a public hearing on proposed regulations that would phase out the use of controversial shock treatment for young people at the Judge Rosenberg Centre in Canton, Massachusetts. Representatives from civil and human rights organizations argued in favour of the regulations, while members of the Rotenberg community defended the treatments

Gov. Deval Patrick has already made his views clear when he recently bypassed the Legislature and issued an executive order to regulate the practice.

Now the Department of Developmental Services, in response to the governor's order, has proposed regulations that would bar the use of shock therapy with new students, and create strict oversight for those who currently receive it.
