Pedophilia & Kevin Strom

Pedophilia & Kevin Strom 

kevin_stromForward:

We apologize to our visitors for having to belabor this pedophilia issue of Kevin Strom’s. It is a distasteful subject we know. However, it is he and Will Williams who have forced the issue through their illegal attempts to further soil and steal the name and other properties of the National Alliance.
NARRG’s mission is the reformation and restoration of the National Alliance organization in its totality and once again reestablish its good name as it was when Dr. William Pierce left us. Let us repeat, our goal is to restore the legally recognized National Alliance, not create some sort of copy-cat group of which Strom has already miserably failed at years ago and thankfully so for everyone’s sake.
The responsibility of NARRG is to do what it is able to protect the National Alliance while we are working to effect management change, thus we are speaking out loud and clear on this subject. We will continue our responsibility to resist the illegal efforts of these two people as well struggle against the corruption that NARRG was formed to fight against to begin with.
The following is a brief statement by Rodney Martin of the American Nationalist Association and American Nationalist Network. It is in large part a response to some of the misleading inferences and downright misinformation going around by a couple of people on Facebook attempting to “prove” that Strom was “cleared” by a marriage and family counselor who was unqualified to treat Strom (which was noted by the court) along with the ridiculous notion that Strom’s troubles were all a frame-up. Mr. Martin has been carefully studying the details of this case and will continue to have more to say on the subject as long as Mr. Strom insists on forcing himself into nationalist circles.

Pedophilia, Treatment, Credentials & Kevin Alfred Strom

by: Rodney Martin

A vast majority of Pedophiles/Sex Offenders of any type approach children they know. NOTE: Kevin Alfred Strom knew the 9 year old little girl he aggressively pursued. 
Sex Offenders, Pedophiles, and persons with Sexual Impulse Control/Attraction issues are treated by Psychiatrists partnered with Clinical Psychologists. Emphasis on Psychiatrists and Clinical Psychologists. Clinical Psychologists differ greatly from general practice Psychologists and Counselors who merely evaluate and study behavior and mental processes, whereas a Clinical Psychologist integrates science, theory and clinical knowledge for the purpose of understanding, preventing, and relieving psychologically-based distress or dysfunction and to promote subjective well-being and personal development. Central to its practice are psychological assessment and psychotherapy. NOTE:Kevin Alfred Strom sought “counseling” from Mr. Yoder who by his own admission (Mr. Yoder’s) is a Marriage and Family Counselor.
It should be noted Dr. Cord Jefferson of UCLA states, pedophilia is the attraction to children, not the actual act of molesting them and it is essentially impossible to change. This is also reinforced by Dr. James Cantor, a senior scientist at the Sexual Behaviors Clinic of the Center of Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto, is at the forefront of neuroimaging studies of pedophiles. NOTE: Let’s recall Kevin Alfred Strom admitted and stipulated in writing to be “drawn to children.”
The most common and most accepted form of treatment for sex-offender treatment is weekly one on one Psychotherapy with a Certified Clinical Psychologist who specializes in the field and Group Therapy. The Psychotherapist, a Clinical Psychologist working in tandem with a Psychiatrist try’s to break down the denial that offenders typically show, says Dr. Fred Berlin, who has studied treatment of pedophilia for many years at Johns Hopkins University. “The group therapy component is intended to confront the denial and rationalization. We do what we call ‘therapeutic confrontation’ — set up an environment where people can speak candidly, even though they’re all struggling with an unacceptable craving for sex with children.”
Additional techniques include, Aversive conditioning, a behavioral method directed at associating a pedophilic fantasy or desire with an unpleasant sensation such as nausea, an electric shock, or a bad smell, was once popular. Although a review concluded that aversive conditioning might increase someone’s ability to control sexual attraction to children in the short term, there is no evidence that this approach is effective over time. NOTE: Kevin Alfred Strom stipulated to being “drawn to children” and wrote of fantasies of showering of kisses.

Keven Alfred Strom was arranged to receive “treatment” from an unqualified Christian Counselor (Mr. Yoder) paid for by his mother.
Kevin Alfred Strom never received treatment from a Psychiatrist that specialized in pedophilia or adult impulse control/attraction nor received treatment from a Clinical Psychologist trained in the treatment of Pedophilia, Impulse Control, or Sex Offenses.
Mr. Yoder who provided “services” paid for by Strom’s mother and who provided a letter stating his opinion which was taken as a Character reference at Court proceedings is NOT a Clinical Psychologist trained in the specialized treatment of Sex Offenders, pedophilia, or Sexual Impulse Control and thus was NOT qualified to make any determination as to Strom being cured, thus the Court discounted his letter as “opinion” and Strom was placed on 15-Year supervised Probation and placed on the Megan’s List for Pedophile Crimes. 
Kevin Alfred Strom did NOT participate in the most common and generally accepted form of Therapy for persons “drawn to children” i.e. pedophilia.

  1. There was no reason for Kevin Strom to participate in therapy for pedophiles, as Harvey Yoder, who is a psychologist, licensed in the state of VA, stated that he was not, in fact, a pedophile. and had not been in the past. Here is some information I found about Mr. Yoder simply by looking on Google: "Harvey Yoder"to find that he is fully licensed and certified as a psychologist.

    He received his Masters degree from James Madison University in 1979 in psychological counseling. Looking up his NPI (National Provider Identifier) number, which is 1366414781, gives the following info about the fields in which he is licensed in the state of VA:
    his primary taxonomy number, 103T00000X, means he is a psychologist, for which his VA license number is 0701001684. His secondary taxonomy number is 106H00000X, that is, Marriage and Family Therapist, for which his VA license number is 0717000403.

    Here is the definition of "Psychologist" in terms of its taxonomy number: Taxonomy Code 103T00000X
    Psychologist - Behavioral Health and Social Service Providers
    Type - Level II Classification
    Definition
    103T00000X - A psychologist is an individual who is licensed to practice psychology which is defined as the observation, description, evaluation, interpretation, and modification of human behavior by the application of psychological principles, methods, and procedures, for the purpose of preventing or eliminating symptomatic, maladaptive, or undesired behavior and of enhancing interpersonal relationships, work and life adjustment, personal effectiveness, behavioral health, and mental health. The practice of psychology includes, but is not limited to, psychological testing and the evaluation or assessment of personal characteristics, such as intelligence, personality, abilities, interests, aptitudes, and neuropsychological functioning; counseling, psychoanalysis, psychotherapy, hypnosis, biofeedback, and behavior analysis and therapy; diagnosis and treatment of mental and emotional disorder or disability, alcoholism and substance abuse, disorders of habit or conduct, as well as of the psychological aspects of physical illness, accident, injury, or disability; and psycheducational evaluation, therapy, remediation, and consultation.

  2. As you can see above, Yoder's job qualifications include: "evaluation or assessment of personal characteristics, such as...neuropsychological functioning... diagnosis and treatment of mental and emotional disorder..." Pedophilia is defined as a "mental disorder", so Yoder was qualified to diagnose and treat it.

    His conclusions, in his statement about Kevin Strom are quite unambiguous:"...in my professional judgment I do not see Mr. Strom meeting any of the criteria in the DSM IV for being a pedophile." "I find no credible evidence that he has ever engaged in any inappropriate or illegal sexual or otherwise behavior with any child, male or female."

  3. I will add that I consider Rodney Martin's behavior dishonest in continuing to post as "FACTS" allegations against KAS that have been disproven, others that were thrown out of court for insufficient evidence, and others that are false on their face (such as the claim that Strom "admitted and stipulated to being “drawn to children” in the contract with his wife, which he clearly did not).

    What is Rodney Martin's motivation for continuing to post false and defamatory screeds against Strom?

    If he wants to help NARGG in their quest to wrest control of the NA from Erich Gliebe, and doesn't want the competition of Kevin Strom setting up his own NA, why doesn't he stick to attacking KAS on the alleged illegality of that move?

    It reflects badly on NARRG to tout the government version of what was clearly a conspiracy by the government against a WN for the purpose of neutralizing his effectiveness.

    Here is the url of a very fair article on the Strom case by a small mainstream newspaper, the Charlottesville Times. It also contains links, in one of the comments, links to other sites that give the defense side of the case: http://www.charlottesvilletimes.com/2010/09/the-kevin-alfred-strom-case/
