Dr. Jeanette Harder: A Case Study in Well-Intentioned Interventions in High Control Groups
This report addresses the presumably well-intentioned interventions of one professional into a High Control Group. The study of Dr. Jeanette Harder’s interventions in Plain and Amish contexts illuminates how problematic and damaging it can be to intervene without the expertise of advocates and survivors who have lived inside the communities. It is the hope of The Misfit Amish, A Better Way, and Into Account that this case study will be useful more generally as a guide to interventions to support survivors and prevent violence in High Control Groups.
