Abuse and Treatment
In her therapy sessions, Beth revealed something extremely troubling: she was physically and sexually abused by her birth parents and family. Beth was diagnosed with what’s known as “reactive attachment disorder” which provided her with an inability to form human connections or develop proper social reactions.
Beth’s condition was so bad she had to be removed from the home and given intense behavior modification treatment, which included a strict regiment of rules. She began to show remorse for her actions and learned how to empathize with others.
Beth Thomas Now
Beth Thomas endured years of therapy, but she grew in to a mentally healthy adult. She completed a degree in nursing and now helps other children who suffer from the same medical condition she did. Her mother, Nancy Thomas, opened a clinic for children with severe behavior disturbances in the hopes of helping them heal like Beth did.
