Robert Lichfield Is Lying

Robert Lichfield, owner of WWASP

Robert Lichfield, owner of WWASP

Robert Lichfield is the founder and owner of WWASP. As such, Lichfield built and then oversaw a large network  of abusive programs that literally spanned the entire world as well as  shady marketing department designed to drive fear deep into the hearts of naive and loving parents in order to bilk them out of every penny quickly and efficiently as possible. For years, Lichfield has been backpedaling. He will do anything and say anything to divorce himself from WWASP and WWASP from the programs. He and the owners of the programs have claimed repeatedly to be completely independent. Don’t  let them pull the wool over your eyes.

The programs ran on a franchise system similar to many fast food restaurants. They were independently owned, and each owner presumably had some small say over what went on, but most  of the blueprints and decisions came straight from the godfather himself, Lichfield. The same  seminars were offered, they used the same  level system, and had the same exact rules.
They used the same marketing techniques and the same jargon. And as that very jargon holds,  “If it walks like a duck, quacks  like a duck, and has webbed feet, it’s  probably a duck.” In this case, if it smells like a vast and evil corporate  empire predicated on greed and child abuse, and it’s slimy like one…yeah, definitely is  one.

About Bill Boyles

Bill Boyles is from Orlando, FL. At 14, he was forcibly escorted to WWASP's Brightway Adolescent Hospital in St. George, UT, where he stayed briefly before being sent to another WWASP facility, Paradise Cove in Western Samoa. After spending 22 months in Paradise Cove, he was transferred to yet another WWASP program, Casa By The Sea in Ensenada, Mexico. He spent 8 more months in Casa By The Sea before graduating days before his 17th birthday. He firmly believes all WWASP programs are abusive and that they all need to be shut down.

    • WWASP Survivors Says:

      Yes. WWASP, the company may be dissolved but there are quite a few WWASP programs still operating and still owned by Lichfield. More specifically, He owns the land and he provides billing and client management via Optimum Billing LLC. They are all still running on the old WWASP program model, the levels, the rules, the dangerous policies… but they pretend that they are no longer affiliated with WWASP in name. It’s unknown how many programs still utilize the Resource Realizations Seminars, some do and some do them in house. After the closure of Youth Foundation Success Academy (Formerly Cross Creek) It seems that WWASP is grabbing at straws to stay relevant… They are now running a new program called Seneca Ranch, out of Narvin Lichfield’s property in Donalds South Carolina, as well, they are sending kids from Seneca to the former property of Dundee Ranch/ Pillars of Hope in Costa Rica. Narvin Lichfield has admitted to using fake names for him and his staff citing that his affiliation with WWASP has ruined his reputation.

    I went to two WWASP programs as a teenager. Carolina springs academy at 15, in 2003 and transported to ivy ridge at 16. I graduated in feb. 2006 but finally left in November after finishing school, which coincidentally I didn’t receive a diploma or b transcript…. Just a paper with classes/credits and gpa… I’ve strongly blocked everything from my mind but subconsciously I think is all creeping back up

    My wife believes i do have ptsd… It’s funny, because at the time you’re living it you think it’s all “normal” I mean how else are hook supposed to think and feel and act. I hate to admit it because it breaks my heart, but for those of us that weren’t “programmed” and “brainwashed” (which we all were whether we believes it or not)… Were abused mentally emotionally psychologically and physically. Just plain hell,

    Well, it’s been almost 17 years since I left Spring Creek Lodge. I have posted here before under my real name, and I do regret some of the things I mentioned…unfortunately ‘en vino veritas’.
    I still sometimes see something that reminds me of wwasps, read something that gets to me, and every now and again get that feeling of paranoia and helplessness that was born out of my experience with WWASPS.
    Bill, first let me say that I admire your poise and maturity in speaking about and to program related issues, and the shills that still very actively defend wwasps on line. I wish I had adopted a method of dealing with these people more akin to yours. We need someone who monitors institutional abuse of children.
    We also need to move forward and heal. I look back at years wasted on my anger for the Lichfield family. I truly hated them. I tore myself up to as if to say “Look your program made me even worse…Ha…” What logic… I spent years beating myself up because I was pissed and couldn’t do anything about what I went through. I saw people I used to respect and care deeply for basking in money stolen from families in crisis and it made me want to jump out of my skin. In the end though, I was far removed from those people…they couldn’t hurt me anymore. They can’t hurt any of us any more.
    Robert Lichfield may be a truly evil man. He may be the worst kind of business man…Monsanto evil… He and those who accept his blood money may have sold their souls. It’s their path. We went through what we did and suffered (some much worse than others) for a reason.
    Everyone should be vigilant about companies like wwasps. They cause pain. I’m rambling… My point is that it’s important to learn from the past…especially the hard parts. However, living in the past is dangerous. If that doesn’t apply, please disregard it. If you are like I was though, please consider closing the book and moving forward. Your suffering means nothing to those who operated or benefit from WWASP facilities. They don’t care…they never will. They all know deep down that what they did was evil, but we are not truly survivors if we relive these horrible times again and again. If we do that we are simply victims.
    I’m married now, have a good life finally, and am truly living for the first time in a long time. I will never forget what I saw out there, but now that I am living an upstanding life, I see the folly of being eternally vengeful…even if I still feel I was right. Would any of you want to trade places with any of those ‘people’ for even a second? I wouldn’t. Let’s help keep new places from doing what was done to us, but for God’s sake let go of the pain. It’s over now. Be a survivor, never a victim. God bless you, God bless everyone who was there, and Merry Christmas. Live well, try to forgive, prosper, and do what you need to do to heal step by step. If you do this, your anger toward certain people will turn to pity.
    Sorry for ranting Bill…

    I was in casa by the sea in 2002.
    14-15 years later i still have nightmares.
    I believe i have ptsd aswell. Its more of
    Reliving extreme trauma than a nightmare.
    I always wake up terrified scared, followed by
    A great sadness. I cant believe theese schools
    Still exist and operate. Its a billion dollar industry, clearly moneys more important then
    Tens of thousands of so called troubled teens and there basic human rights. I agree with lauren that we were all programmed and brainwashed in seminars.
    And by worksheet tapes we were forced to listen too.we all suffered abuse in one way or another.
    I started suffering health problems a couple years ago. earlier this year my family tryed too dump me into 2 diffrent facilities against my will. Biggest nightmare come true. Luckily i fully resisted(was severly assaulted until police came), im not 14 anymore im 28 and have rights. Some families and parents never learn. Im trying to heal the best i can. I have a trip planned to go back to ensenada in a couple months. Maybe this will help. Its strange that i feel ive gained immense mental strenth in Casa. at the same time i feel it severly broke me. Im trying to stay strong. Family members and friends will never be able to fully grasp what we went through.
