The Survivorship Ritual Abuse and Mind Control 2017 Conference

The Survivorship Ritual Abuse and Mind Control 2017 Conference

On May 19 – 21, 2017 Survivorship will have two conferences at the Executive Inn & Suite in Oakland, CA.

Saturday and Sunday Conference
Speakers include:

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.

Wendy Hoffman
Dirty Therapy
We know that satanic cult perpetrator groups infiltrate the very professions and organizations that survivors turn to for help. Survivors in general often look for therapeutic assistance. Consequently, these criminal groups have set up some of their members to become therapists and to lead therapy groups. Even when we think that we are in a safe environment, what we sometimes find are people re-programming us and closing us down. There are still many safe and competent therapists working in the field of mind control. In this presentation, I will talk about some of the professionals I was sent to, how I was ordered to go and what they did to re-assert barriers in my mind. Being aware of these dangers helps survivors to elude them. The underlying issue of betrayal will also be considered. Audience participation is encouraged.

Wendy Hoffman somehow survived various forms of high level secret mind control. She tried all her life to get free and has finally succeeded. Now she wants to help and support other survivors in their quest for freedom. She is a LCSW-C with decades of experience and is the author of The Enslaved Queen, a Memoir about Electricity and Mind Control, published in 2014, White Witch in a Black Robe, a True Story about Criminal Mind Control, 2015, as well as her book of poetry, Forceps, 2016, all published by Karnac Books, London.

Neil Brick
Freedom from Mind Control
Subliminal methods and mind control influence our lives in all areas. Social and cultural forms of mind control keep us from growing as human beings.  These forms of control make it difficult for us to grow and learn as survivors. They make it more difficult to work through our cult control programming to free our minds and our lives. Recovery techniques will be discussed that can help survivors and others break through their mind control programs and influences.

Neil Brick is a survivor of ritual abuse and mind control. His work continues to educate the public about child abuse, trauma and ritual abuse crimes. His child abuse and ritual abuse newsletter S.M.A.R.T. has been published for over 20 years. http://neilbrick.com


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 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).

Survivorship Conference 2016 Presentations by Wendy Hoffman and Alison Miller

August 18, 2016

Presented at the Survivorship Ritual Abuse and Child Abuse 2016 Conference – Stop Mind Control and Programs in Oakland, CA

Wendy Hoffman somehow survived various forms of high level secret mind control. She tried all her life to get free and has finally succeeded. Now she wants to help and support other survivors in their quest for freedom. She is a LCSW-C with decades of experience and is the author of The Enslaved Queen, a Memoir about Electricity and Mind Control, published in 2014 and White Witch in a Black Robe, a True Story about Criminal Mind Control, 2015, both by Karnac Books, London. Her book of poetry, Forceps, is forthcoming in 2016.

Self-Esteem Loosens Mind Control
Mind control roots in people’s minds even though it does not benefit them in any way. Why? One reason is that strong feelings hold the mandates in place. Where do these feelings come from? From the perpetrators, not their victims. The perpetrators begin manipulating in these feelings during infancy and before the infants and children even know who they are. This workshop presentation will discuss the kinds of feelings the mind controllers place in their victims to secure that they will not try to break free of their poisonous commands, and how improving self-esteem can help loosen mind control. But people can break free. They can and are and have. Right now.
This workshop discussed:
1. Explore these early emotional states
2. Understand the distortions and lies told to children
3. Help loosen programming through improved self-esteem.
Integration will also be discussed.

This presentation may be triggering for survivors of abuse. You may want to review this with your therapist or support person before reading it. This presentation is not meant at therapy or treatment.

Internal Keys to Safety
Survivors’ safety is endangered both externally by parts who maintain ongoing contact with perpetrators and respond to cues, and internally by parts trained to punish the person for forbidden behavior such as disclosures. She gave practical suggestions for survivors to achieve and maintain safety both externally and internally.

How two psychologists teamed up with the CIA to devise a torture program and experiment on human beings.
http://childabusedata.blogspot.com/2016/05/judge-allows-cia-torture-lawsuit-to.html

The CIA program violated not only international and U.S. prohibitions on torture — it also violated the well-established ban on non-consensual human experimentation.

Judge Allows A CIA Torture Lawsuit To Move Forward For The First Time
The Senate report refers to psychologists James Elmer Mitchell and John “Bruce” Jessen using pseudonyms, and describes their integral role in creating and executing an interrogation program that taught prisoners “learned helplessness” by exposing them to uncontrollable pain. The duo’s company received $81 million from the CIA for the work on the interrogation program.

Out of the Darkness
How two psychologists teamed up with the CIA to devise a torture program and experiment on human beings.

Mitchell and Jessen were interested in applying the psychological concept of “learned helplessness” to interrogation. Psychologist Martin Seligman pioneered studies on the phenomenon in experiments he conducted on dogs in the 1960s. Seligman used the term “learned helplessness” to describe the state of utter passivity prompted by a series of negative events that leads subjects to believe there is nothing they can do to escape their suffering. Seligman conducted his experiments by administering electric shocks to different groups of dogs. When given the chance to avoid their pain, the dogs in his experiment that had been able to escape the shocks did so quickly. Those that couldn’t stop the pain didn’t even try to avoid it, even when given the opportunity. They believed they had no ability to control their fates. They had learned helplessness.
Mitchell and Jessen posited that this theory could be applied to interrogation — that harsh measures could be used to break any resistance of al-Qaida captives by inducing a state of learned helplessness. Torture would “shape compliance” with interrogation, Mitchell and Jessen theorized. Once detainees were abused to the point of learned helplessness, resistance would crumble, and the detainees would divulge information that they might otherwise withhold.
No legitimate science backs up this assumption.

Ottawa diocese repeatedly warned about local clergy’s most notorious abuser
Andrew Duffy, Ottawa Citizen May 18, 2016
The Archdiocese of Ottawa continues to pay for the many sins of Rev. Dale Crampton.
Court documents reveal that the diocese has paid $741,783.44 in compensation to 10 of Crampton’s victims, who were sexually abused by the Catholic priest between 1963 and 1982.
More lawsuits are before the courts. The victims in those cases are seeking $3.7 million.
In total, the diocese now knows of at least 17 people who say they were victimized by the priest as children.
Through interviews and court documents, the Citizen has learned that members of the Ottawa clergy were warned at least seven times about Crampton’s sexual misconduct, beginning in 1965.

Cult leader’s extradition from Brazil to Minn. to face rape charges suddenly called off

Dispute between Brazil and U.S. over sentencing is behind the delay.
By Paul Walsh Star Tribune  May 19, 2016
Minnesota cult leader Victor Barnard was arrested in February 2015 while on the run in Brazil, where he remains imprisoned.
Cult leader Victor Barnard was supposed to have been put on a flight from Brazil under guard of federal agents Thursday and returned to Minnesota to face charges that he raped young followers in his congregation, but an unexpected delay has popped up, a defense attorney said. The extradition is now on an indefinite hold.
Barnard faces 59 counts of first- and third-degree criminal sexual conduct for allegedly molesting young girls he called “maidens” in his Pine County congregation.

Annual report shows continued toll of clergy sex abuse crisis
The Catholic church paid $153 million in the United States last year to settle lawsuits, and fielded hundreds of new accusations, as fallout continued from the clergy sex abuse scandal exposed in the early 2000s, a new report from church leaders says.
Between 1950 and June 2015, more than 17,600 people made clergy abuse allegations that US Catholic officials have deemed credible.
More than 6,500 clerics were accused of abuse nationwide between 1950 and June 2015, church data show.
Many of the cases deemed credible by the church were alleged to have occurred from the 1960s to the 1980s. Clergy preyed upon boys in the vast majority of reported cases. The alleged abuse most often began when victims were between 10 and 14.
Between 1950 and the end of June 2015, about $3.5 billion was spent on settlement-related costs by US church officials, according to the church.

Author, ex-prosecutor slams critics of Child Victims Act, urges New York to stop protecting abusers
The time to pass the Child Victims Act is now. Some have raised the concern of false reporting, but the statistics are abundantly clear that this problem represents a small fractional proportion — less than 2% of all claims. For example, California saw about five false claims out of 850 against the Catholic Church. False reporting occurs in every category of crime and it is certainly an issue in cases which fall within the statute of limitations. It is part of the job of every prosecutor to identify those complaints and get them out of the system. They are rare, and they should never be a barrier to the overwhelming number of valid complaints that deserve to be investigated….

Poems About The Birth of The Self 
by Wendy Hoffman
The search for my true past came in distinct waves. This collection of poems includes some from the long period when I knew something was drastically wrong but didn’t consciously know what that was and some from the breakthrough when I discovered my never-bloomed self. The poems cover the outskirts of my awakening, my plowing through and arrival in the middle of awareness. When dissociated memories and emotions exploded inside, eventually they filtered into a poem. The horror transmuted itself. These poems are that record. I have regained a real, not imposed, self.

The Leadership Council’s Examination of the Rind Meta-analysis
The Leadership Council completed its review of a controversial study that purported to show that children are rarely harmed by sex abuse by adults.  http://www.leadershipcouncil.org/1/rind/1.html

Rind et al.’s main Conclusions do not stand up to scientific scrutiny
The following scholarly papers have examined Rind et al.’s meta-analysis and called into question their paper’s methodology and/or conclusions.  http://www.leadershipcouncil.org/1/rind/crtc.html

The Leadership Council’s Analysis of Rind et al. (1998)
They also reported that “consenting” boys show no evidence of harm and often have positive reactions to sex with adults.

Our analysis found that the study by Rind et al. was seriously flawed. In fact, we found the paper was a stacked deck of poor population and study selection, misreported data and misrepresented findings that led to faulty conclusions. http://www.leadershipcouncil.org/docs/Dallam2001.pdf

Controversial Study Defending Child Molesters Is Debunked
Leading Mental Health Experts Charge that “Bad” Science is being used to Justify Exploiting Children
http://www.leadershipcouncil.org/1/rind/pr.html
The newly published scientific critique shows that the study conducted by Rind contains fundamental flaws that are an embarrassment to science, according to a team of researchers from Stanford University, Texas A&M University, and the Leadership Council, a scientific organization comprised of leaders in the fields of psychology and psychiatry. Rind’s paper was a stacked deck of poor population and study selection, misreported data, and misrepresented findings that inevitably led to the wrong conclusions,” says Dr. David Spiegel , co-author of the new study. Spiegel is the Associate Chair of the Stanford University School of Medicines Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences.

1989: Bauserman’s first scholarly publication “Man-Boy Sexual Relationships in a Cross-Cultural Perspective.” was published in Paidika: The Journal of Paedophilia. The stated purpose of the journal is to legitimize pedophilia (see “Statement of Purpose,” [1987]. Paidika: The Journal of Pedophilia, 1, pp, 2-3 ). The paper consists of a historical examination of the function of man-boy sexual relationships. Bauserman (1989) concludes that these relationships have traditionally provided boys with positive male role models and teachers.
September 1998: The International Pedophile and Child Emancipation (IPCE) newsletter [see link 14] includes an announcement for a Dutch conference titled “De Andere Kant van de Medaille” or “The Other Side of the Coin.”  Rind, Tromovitch and Bauserman are listed as the keynote speakers. The purpose of the conference is to shed light on the positive side of sex between adults and children.

McMartin Preschool Case – What Really Happened and the Coverup

The Dark Tunnels of McMartin – Dr. Roland C. Summit
Dr. Stickel’s report (p.95) concludes: There is no other scenario that fits all of the facts except that the feature was indeed a tunnel. The date of the construction and use of the tunnel was not absolutely established, but an assessment of seven factors of data all indicate that it was probably constructed, used and completely filled back in after 1966 (the construction date of the preschool). This age assessment has also been corroborated by the consulting Geologist for the project, Dr. Don Michael.
