The Survivorship Ritual Abuse and Child Abuse 2017 Conference

December 16, 2016

The Survivorship Ritual Abuse and Child Abuse 2017 Conference

On May 19 – 21, 2017 Survivorship will have a conference at the Executive Inn & Suite – 1755 Embaracadero – Oakland, CA 94606.

There will be a clinician’s conference on Friday, May 19, 2017 for licensed clinicians and students in the field. Alison Miller will be presenting a full day presentation at this conference.

Working with Deliberately Structured Personality Systems
Many therapists working with dissociative disorders have encountered clients with very complex, structured and layered personality systems created by organized perpetrator groups.  This workshop will describe the characteristics of such systems as reported by survivors: the internalized structures or “worlds” where parts believe they live, the internal leadership and hierarchies, the “jobs” assigned to parts by perpetrators, and the security precautions embedded into such personality systems. We shall look at what survivors report about the methods by which such systems are created, the childhood and ongoing indoctrination, and the training or “programming” of parts to do their “jobs.” Effective treatment involves working with the internal leadership to turn off and eventually dismantle the programming, while maintaining physical safety as much as possible.

Dr. Alison Miller has a Ph.D. from the University of British Columbia and is a semi-retired 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. She is a member of the Board of Directors of Survivorship, a member of the advisory board of the Eleos Support Network (for ritual abuse), and the 2017 Chair of the Ritual Abuse and Mind Control Special Interest Group of the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation. Her books include: Becoming Yourself: Overcoming Mind Control and Ritual Abuse (for survivors), and Healing the Unimaginable: Treating Ritual Abuse and Mind Control (for therapists). She has contributed chapters on ritual abuse and mind control to Noblitt & Noblitt’s Ritual Abuse in the 21st Century (2008), Breitenbach’s Inside Views from the Dissociated Worlds of Extreme Violence: Human Beings as Merchandise (2015), Sinason & van der Merwe’s Shattered: Multiple Selves, Multiple Voices – speaking on behalf of silenced survivors (2016), and (with Heather Gingrich) Gingrich & Gingrich’s Treating Trauma in Christian Counselling (to be published in 2017).

We will have two days of survivor and professional workshops on Saturday May 20 and Sunday May 21, 2017 with excellent prices, good food, a safe environment and the chance to work with others who are survivors.

Alison Miller (please see biography above):
Confronting the Spiritual Issues in Ritual Abuse
Survivors of abuse by ritualistic organized perpetrator groups report numerous experiences designed to destroy their spiritual integrity and leave them believing that they are so evil that no one but the perpetrators will accept them. These experiences include simulation of religious figures such as God, Jesus, and Satan, and the afterlife including heaven and hell; designation of certain internal parts of the victim to be demons or have “demonic attachments,” and most chillingly, forced childhood participation in rape and murder followed by systematic shaming of the victim as “evil.” Many parts of each survivor believe the perpetrators’ lies about how evil he or she must be. These experiences raise existential questions for survivors, such as why such things happen, why there is no divine intervention, and why such groups continue to exist without being stopped. We shall look at various ways of making meaning of such experiences, and whether these ways deal effectively with the horror of spiritual abuse.

Jessie Misskelley Confessed Many Times

Police officers involved in cover up of paedophile ring, says former Deputy Police Chief
Lenny Harper led the investigation into allegations of child abuse at former children’s home Haut de la Garenne in 2008.
I was hugely concerned there was a cover up happening in Jersey and I was concerned that a lot of evidence was going missing and that witnesses were being intimidated. There was a clear story emerging in my mind and whilst I may not have used the term paedophile ring, my view there was certainly a culture emerging in Jersey of systematic child abuse.
– Lenny Harper, former Deputy Chief Officer of Jersey’s police

Janner: Three chances missed to put MP on trial for child abuse
Three chances to put Greville Janner on trial for child abuse were blown because of mistakes by the police or prosecutors, according to a senior legal figure today.
Retired High Court judge Sir Richard Henriques said the former Leicester MP, who died aged 86 last month, should have been charged with offences against boys in 1991, 2002 and 2007.
The cases did not proceed because of the “inadequacy” of police investigations or decisions by senior prosecutors.
The peer’s family has always insisted he was innocent of any crime….
The death of the veteran Labour politician – who was accused of 22 sexual offences against boys between 1963 and 1988 – ended the prospect of his alleged victims’ evidence ever being tested in a criminal court.

Josh Duggar, TLC cancels ’19 Kids and Counting’

The Duggars’ TLC reality show ’19 Kids and Counting’ is officially canceled
The announcement ends weeks of speculation about the fate of the show after the Duggars’ oldest son, Josh, apologized in May for molesting multiple young girls, including some of his sisters, more than a decade ago, when he was a teenager.  Duggar, 27, also resigned from his job at the Family Research Council’s lobbying arm in D.C.

“All the church elders who knew about this will have to be named,” a source told the gossip magazine.
News of a potential lawsuit comes a month after the eldest son of the Duggar clan was forced to admit he molested five girls — four of them his own sisters — as a teenager. The plaintiff is the fifth victim, who is not related to her abuser.

Jehovah’s Witnesses

Jehovah’s Witnesses failed to report 1,000 alleged perpetrators, child sex abuse royal commission hears   The Sydney hearing was told the church adopted a scriptural response to abuse, which it abhorred, and had files relating to 1,006 alleged perpetrators, dating back to 1950.
The process required witnesses to prove abuse took place, and no allegations were ever reported to police. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-07-27/jehovahs-witnesses-child-sexual-abuse-royal-commission/6649340

Is religion doing enough to root out abuse?
Karen Morgan said the church offered no help when she reported the abuse
From when Karen Morgan was 12, until she was well into her teens, she was sexually abused by her uncle – a ministerial servant with the Jehovah’s Witnesses….
But what is striking about the Jehovah’s Witnesses is their explicit policy of dealing with abuse in-house.

Vatican

Vatican delays trial of pope’s ex-diplomat accused of child porn, pedophilia
Wesolowski, 66, is the highest-ranking Catholic official arrested for alleged sexual abuse of minors.
In addition to sexual abuse allegations, he is accused of possession of child pornography during his time as papal nuncio — or ambassador — to the Dominican Republic.
Before arriving in the Dominican Republic seven years ago, Wesolowski was nuncio to Bolivia, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan.
