Thank you very much for your post. I can see the therapeutic value in this case. In my post I was not clear about my difficulty with the treatment plan. There are times when seclusion is a necessity for the safety of everyone. The treatment plans I am concerned about are for children or adolescents who are not combative. These children just come out of the quiet room because they do not want to take time-out, due to different reasons, ie hyperactivity, oppositional defiant disorder, pushing limits - but the child is not combative. I would appreciate your thoughts on this.
