I felt trapped and hopeless because of my dad's abusive and authoritarian parenting style. Dr. Dewdney told my parents that I was manipulating them. He imposed more strict rules. I was not allowed to be around males at all. Most of my friends were guys so I felt even more isolated. I was sent to Orchard Place. The staff repeatedly told me I didn't deserve to be there. I took an unofficial online personality quiz and told him the results. He used it in his diagnosis. This doctor is a joke.
