The Justice Department kept the 600-page report secret for the last four years, releasing a heavily redacted version last month to a private research group that sued to force its release. A complete version was obtained by The New York Times.

On May 4 – 5, 2013
Survivorship will hold a conference at
Executive Inn & Suite
1755 Embaracadero
Oakland, CA 94606

http://www.executiveinnoakland.com

Survivorship

Survivorship is one of the oldest and most respected organizations supporting survivors of extreme child abuse, including sadistic sexual abuse, ritualistic abuse, mind control, and torture.

Survivorship provides resources, healing, and Survivorship community for survivors; training and education for professionals who may serve survivors; and support for survivors’ partners and other allies. The organization functions as a lifeline for survivors who may be isolated emotionally or geographically. Through community outreach and training, Survivorship also raises awareness about these difficult issues.

The purpose of the conference will be to help survivors of ritual abuse and their allies. The conference will be for survivors, cosurvivors, helping professionals and others interested in this topic.

This year our keynote speaker is Steve Frankel.

Steve Frankel is a Board Certified Clinical and Forensic Psychologist and an Attorney at Law, who practices both professions in San Francisco’s East Bay.  A Clinical Prof. of Psychology at USC, he began recognizing childhood trauma in his adult patient case-load in 1980 and has specialized in working with that population ever since.  He joined the Int’l. Society for the Study of Trauma & Dissociation in the 1990s and was the consultant to the Trauma Program at Del Amo Hospital from 1993 until 2001.  He was President of the ISSTD in 2002 and has been active in developing and teaching courses in trauma treatment as well as publishing chapters in books and professional journals in the trauma field.

His presentation is:
“Validation: science is (finally!) catching up to what survivors and clinicians have known for years.”

More Speakers:

Dr Ellen Lacter will be presenting:
Therapists Reporting Histories of Ritual Abuse Trauma: Preliminary Results on Beneficial and Detrimental Treatment Approaches
Highlights of the pilot findings of this ongoing study will be presented, including: (a) responding to a client’s first report or memory, (b) making programming conscious, working with programmed triggers and suicidality, and resolution of programming, (c) working with ongoing victimization, and (d) the place of spirituality in therapy and  healing.

Ani Rose will present an in-depth look at a WHOLE-FIRST approach for healing work. The WHOLE-FIRST approach assumes that the relationship is where things happen, and equality exists. She will discuss Gifts and Skills from Original Wholeness embraced in an Integral Relationship. In this workshop, we’ll look at the 20 plus skills involved in surviving severe trauma, This presentation includes tools for support people to connect more deeply with survivors.

Melisa Noel – The Natural Reassociation Method: Launching the Recovery Process for RA/MC/Torture Survivors and Their Allies. This workshop introduces the principles, benefits and paradigm shifts offered by the Natural Reassociation Method (NRM), a new approach to RA/MC recovery that capitalizes on our innate healing capacities. NRM is transforming how survivors and support persons view and experience recovery, while also improving results and sustainability for many.

Sandra will speak about “What I Have Learned So Far.”  With caring and believe it or not at times appropriate humour,  the profound and subtle influences of RA are highlighted. Steps to bring awareness to the impact of and treatment methods for RA are offered.

Survivorship

Survivorship is one of the oldest and most respected organizations supporting survivors of extreme child abuse, including sadistic sexual abuse, ritualistic abuse, mind control, and torture.

Survivorship provides resources, healing, and Survivorship community for survivors; training and education for professionals who may serve survivors; and support for survivors’ partners and other allies. The organization functions as a lifeline for survivors who may be isolated emotionally or geographically. Through community outreach and training, Survivorship also raises awareness about these difficult issues.

The purpose of the conference will be to help survivors of ritual abuse and their allies. The conference will be for survivors, cosurvivors, helping professionals and others interested in this topic.

This year our keynote speaker is Steve Frankel.

Steve Frankel is a Board Certified Clinical and Forensic Psychologist and an Attorney at Law, who practices both professions in San Francisco’s East Bay.  A Clinical Prof. of Psychology at USC, he began recognizing childhood trauma in his adult patient case-load in 1980 and has specialized in working with that population ever since.  He joined the Int’l. Society for the Study of Trauma & Dissociation in the 1990s and was the consultant to the Trauma Program at Del Amo Hospital from 1993 until 2001.  He was President of the ISSTD in 2002 and has been active in developing and teaching courses in trauma treatment as well as publishing chapters in books and professional journals in the trauma field.

His presentation is:
“Validation: science is (finally!) catching up to what survivors and clinicians have known for years.”
