Survivorship Ritual Abuse and Child Abuse Conference Online Presentations – Alison Miller

June 9, 2015

Survivorship Ritual Abuse and Child Abuse Conference Online Presentations

These presentations may be triggering for survivors of abuse. You may want to review these with your therapist or support person before reading them.
Survivorship Ritual Abuse and Child Abuse 2015 Conference – Support Along the Path

Dr. Alison Miller was our keynote speaker for the 2015 conference.

Overcoming Mind Control: Keys to Recovery
(a talk for survivors of ritual abuse and mind control)

She presented nine keys to recovery for survivors of mind control and ritual abuse: acknowledging multiplicity, letting internal leaders take charge, improving the inner world and its government and the jobs of insiders, achieving physical safety (defeating access programming), challenging the abuser group’s lies, selecting your goal of healing or stabilization, working through traumatic memories systematically and thoroughly, choosing a safe therapist who is open to learning, and allowing parts to join together naturally when they are ready.

Alison Miller’s Second Workshop
Building Internal Cooperation
Many survivors of ritual abuse or mind control have an ongoing war between their front person who tries to manage everyday life, and the internal parts who continue to perform tasks assigned by the abuser group. This impasse leaves survivors unstable and subject to flashbacks, self-harm and suicidal impulses, which increase in severity if the front person tries to access the traumatic memories. Learn how to build internal cooperation and community among your selves.

Alison has an M.A. from the University of Delhi (India), a Ph.D. from the University of British Columbia and is a psychologist in private practice in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. She has worked with survivors of ritual abuse and mind control since 1991. She has been a fellow of the ISST-D (International Society for the Study of Trauma & Dissociation) since 2013. Her books include: “Becoming Yourself: Overcoming Mind Control and Ritual Abuse.” (Karnac Books), “Healing the Unimaginable: Treating Ritual Abuse and Mind Control” (Karnac Books) and “Recognizing and treating survivors of abuse by organized criminal groups” a chapter in “Ritual Abuse in the 21st Century) Noblitt, Randy & Noblitt, Pamela Perskin (Eds.)

Dissociative identity disorder: An empirical overview 
Australian & New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry 2014, Vol. 48(5) 402–417  DOI: 10.1177/0004867414527523
DID was found to be a complex yet valid disorder
Because the aetiology of DID is associated with childhood relational trauma, the discomfort caused by studying DID may serve as a potent disincentive to its investigation. Thus avoiding study of DID protects mainstream social institutions – at the expense of the children who are violated by them – as well as enabling researchers, clinicians and the public to retain a comforting denial of both the occurrence of abuse and its disabling psychiatric legacy.
Every study that has systematically examined aetiology has found that antecedent severe, chronic childhood trauma is present in the histories of almost all individuals with DID
DID is found around the globe in almost every culture
anomalies are evident in DID, with different neurobiological profiles found across identities than those in simulation

Corroboration rates
Many studies show high corroboration rates for recovered memories of traumatic events. These rates vary from 50 – 75%, 64%, 77%, 50%, 75%, 68%, 47%, and 70%. One study showed amnesia in 12 murderers, with “objective evidence of severe abuse…obtained in 11 cases”. There are also additional studies showing the corroboration of recovered memories.

Research Evidence showing that Dissociative Identity Disorder (Multiple Personality Disorder or MPD) is caused by Childhood Trauma 
http://childabusedata.blogspot.com/2014/11/evidence-that-dissociative-identity.html
http://goo.gl/SfQG7I
Conclusive evidence that Dissociative Identity Disorder (formerly called Multiple Personality Disorder or MPD) is caused by extensive childhood trauma and not iatrogenically (resulting from the activity of physicians) or socially. Individual identities have been shown to have clear physiological differences. These are only a few of the many studies available in professional journals and research books.

False Memory Syndrome: A False Construct     
http://childabusedata.blogspot.com/2014/11/false-memory-syndrome-false-construct.html
http://goo.gl/RYIuU6

The term False Memory Syndrome was created in 1992. Research has shown that most delayed memories of childhood abuse are true. In general, it has been shown that false allegations of childhood sexual abuse are rare, with some studies showing rates as low as one percent and some studies showing slightly higher rates. It has been found that children tend to understate rather than overstate the extent of any abuse experienced. http://childabusewiki.org/index.php?title=False_Memory_Syndrome

news items: Reality TV – Mama June’s history of dating sex offenders, When the Mind Splits – Dissociative identity disorder, Teal Swan’s story of Satanic Ritual abuse, FAMU Hazing Death, Jehovah’s Witnesses

November 2, 2014

This week there were many news articles on trauma. These include: When the Mind Splits on Dissociative identity disorder,  Teal Swan’s story of Satanic Ritual abuse, Reality TV – Mama June’s history of dating sex offenders, junk science, the Penn St. board votes down new look at 2012 report, the Ex-FAMU band member was convicted in hazing death, the Jehovah’s Witnesses Church to pay $13.5M for alleged child abuse and the UK child abuse inquiry. 

When the Mind Splits
Dissociative identity disorder affects millions of people, most of whom are former child abuse victims.
Research has increasingly demonstrated that DID is a trauma-based disorder that typically emerges among people who have experienced childhood sexual or physical abuse. Dissociation occurs when people mentally detach themselves from their surroundings, a common coping mechanism for a child victim of abuse. http://www.eastbayexpress.com/oakland/when-the-mind-splits/Content?oid=4109440&showFullText=true   http://goo.gl/S5bPf9

When The Mind Splits: Processing Dissociative Identity Disorder Through Art
DID most often develops as a highly complex coping mechanism in the face of intense abuse and trauma, meaning a child mentally detaches from his or her surroundings, and eventually develops distinct, dissociated parts (or personalities) that exist to withstand the abuse. http://www.eastbayexpress.com/CultureSpyBlog/archives/2014/10/29/when-the-mind-splits-processing-dissociative-identity-disorder-through-art http://goo.gl/VmtQZ2

When the Mind Splits
from East Bay Express
Elyse Winter-Volkova has been diagnosed with dissociative identity disorder, but instead of hiding it, she openly talks about her condition online, with the people in her life, and as a guest lecturer in college psychology classes. She hopes to raise awareness and advocate for greater acceptance of people with mental illnesses. http://vimeo.com/110367678

Dissociative identity disorder (formerly called Multiple Personality Disorder or MPD) is defined in the DSM-IV-TR as the presence of two or more personality states or distinct identities that repeatedly take control of one’s behavior. The patient has an inability to recall personal information. The extent of this lack of recall is too great to be explained by normal forgetfulness. The disorder cannot be due to the direct physical effects of a general medical condition or substance. http://childabusewiki.org/index.php?title=Dissociative_Identity_Disorder http://goo.gl/HdPL1

Teal Swan’s story of Satanic Ritual abuse
The topic of Satanic Ritual has long been taboo. One former Idaho woman says she was a victim of Satanic Ritual abuse while growing up in Eastern Idaho. http://www.jrn.com/kivitv/news/Teal-Swans-story-of-Satanic-Ritual-abuse-PART-ONE-281032042.html http://goo.gl/YSDy8R

Junk Science
I do not respond to personal attacks; smearing the messenger is a tactic that speaks for itself….  who dismisses virtually all medical evidence of sexual abuse: “It is now known that anal and genital inflammations and lacerations in young children, once believed to be clear signs of sexual abuse, also occur frequently in kids who were not abused.” There is no scientific basis for the claim that genital lacerations occur frequently in non-abused children. http://blogs.brown.edu/rcheit/2014/10/28/cathy-youngs-junk-science/ http://goo.gl/JnxiCZ

Survivorship Webinar – Going From Being Split to Having Achieved Full Integration

September 25, 2013

REMINDER – WEBINAR COMING UP

Saturday, October 5, 2013
12:00 noon Pacific Time
Presenter: Alison
“What it has been/is like for me to go from being split to having achieved full integration.”

What it has been/is like for me to go from being split into over 30 parts for the past 30 plus years to having achieved full integration, with a few surprises along the way as of April 15 of this year, and what it’s like living as a whole person, after being dissociated and living life as a multiple for the past 38 years. As well as what lies ahead for me now that I am integrated and facing the world from a whole new perspective.

A life long advocate for justice in every facet of society, Alison has consistently refused to take “no” for an answer when the moral imperative shouts “yes,” regardless of inconvenience to the status quo. Alison a survivor of inter-generational cult abuse from Canada., diagnosed with MPD/DID at the age of 18, has been determined to live a life free from the fear of being abused in the future, achieved her dream and in 2010, and no longer lives in constant fear for her life. Over the past 3 1/2 years of intensive psycho-therapy, Alison has achieved integration and on April 15th of this year went from being split into multiple different parts to one whole person, and is now in the process of learning to live her life coping with this new reality.

When not working publicly as an activist, she creates and shares music with others, reminding us all that justice and art can hold hands. Alison currently works part-time as a Piano teacher and is a member of her local paper’s Community Editorial Board, responsible for writing a bimonthly op-ed column on a topic of her choosing.

Capturing the Friedmans –  Many viewers leave the theater believing that they have seen an objective documentary presented by a director who entrusted audiences to draw their own conclusions on Arnold Friedman’s and Jesse Friedman’s guilt. A careful review of the original evidence, however, shows that the case against the Friedmans was much stronger than the film revealed.
