Breaking news tonight!
I just got off the phone with the PA for the head of school where i am studying.
[Ms] Brown has contacted my University and is attempting to interfere with my future and my studies. The PA to the Head of School has advised me that it “is very transparent” what [Ms] Brown is attempting to do and that the Head of the School wants to meet with me in order to fill me in on what [Ms] has said, make sure that i am ok, and offer me the school’s support.
I cannot wait until Monday so that i can get the information that i need from the head of school – and go directly to the nearest Police station. The school has assured me that they just want to offer me support and ensure that what i am going through is not having an impact on my studies. I explained the legal proceedings that i went through in June when i had exams and assignments due – and how it did affect my studies. The school have assured me that they just want to help and have agreed that i need to go to the police.
I was going to say that there are two scenarios here, but there is only one.
She’s summoned to a disciplinary hearing that will (I confidently predict) result in her being kicked out of the school.
There is no way that a school that teaches counseling is going to keep her on. They teach counselling. They are training their students to deal with people who have undergone trauma, to handle that trauma with care and sympathy.
Sperling has publicly humiliated such a person for sport, and tried to get that person’s real friend kicked out of her profession in a fit of pique.
And she has done all that on her blog. In public, on the public record. And the parts she has modified are in the court record. She narrowly missed out on getting a restraining order placed on her by the people concerned here, and she has since well and truly crossed the threshold for the one criteria she did not meet on that occasion. She is only days away from having a restraining order slapped on her, and that order will not be her first.
There is no way that someone, having listened to one side of this story, a side that is supported by a huge volume of evidence – most of which is in Sperling’s own words – would sit down and say what Sperling has claimed. Not when the idea of her being a victim is not supported anywhere but inside her own head. And certainly not an institution that is supposed to train people who can be trusted by victims.
Actually, you don’t even need to go that far. No one says “it’s clear you are the victim, how can we help” when a complaint is laid against you. That’s absurd – or highly unprofessional. No, a complaint is investigated, both sides are heard and then the results come out.
In other words, she’s over-egged the pudding on this one. As usual.
I will now reveal that several weeks ago I contacted an experienced counselor who is a personal friend, and related the facts of the case.
The response I received was that there was 0% chance that Sperling would ever be allowed to graduate. It turns out that my friend actually did the same course.
But let me make this quite clear.
In the unlikely event that this claim of Sperling’s is true, I will make it my personal mission to talk to as many ministers, counselors, doctors and any other professionals I can find and explain to them what Sperling has done. I will then ask them to confirm from independent sources that what I say is true, and that they contact her school to express their horror.
That is if Campbell Live doesn’t get there first.
Update: Sperling’s school has a big problem – and by extension so does Sperling. Because either they’re being defamed online as committing a monstrous breach of ethics, or they have actually committed said breach.
Either way, Sperling is not going to get a degree from a school who’s reputation is worth a damn. If she isn’t kicked out, the damage from this is going to be severe.
Luckily, there is one way of finding ethical people who can change this very quickly.
This post is about Jacqueline (Jackie) Sperling, and is part of an ongoing series discussing her ongoing campaign of harassment and lies against lawyer Madeleine Flannagan, lawyer Simon Buckingham, and Ms Brown (her original target for harassment), as well as The Narrative – the alternate reality she presents on her blog in which she pretends to be the victim of her targets. You can read a court decision that outlines her campaign and the court’s assessment of The Narrative here. Please do not place abusive comments on her blog, phone her, or approach her or her family as she will blame this on her victims.
