The Survivorship Ritual Abuse and Mind Control May 2018 Conference

Survivorship, an organization for survivors of ritual abuse, mind control and torture, had a conference last weekend in Long Beach, California.

Long Beach, CA – WEBWIRE – Monday, May 21, 2018
Survivorship, for survivors of ritual abuse, mind control and torture

Survivorship, for survivors of ritual abuse, mind control and torture

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 helpers.

The Survivorship Ritual Abuse and Mind Control 2018 Conference was at the Courtyard Marriot in Long Beach California this year. Their regular conference for ritual abuse survivors and their helpers was on Saturday and Sunday May 19 – 20, 2018. Their Clinician’s Conference was opened to practioners on Friday May 18, 2018. The conference was an excellent conference again this year, with many strong presentations.

At their Friday conference, there were presentations from Dr. Ellen Lacter, Ph.D., Dr. Randy Noblitt, PhD and Cynthia Henrie, MFT.  All three presenters are highly credentialed and well educated in their topics.

Dr. Lacter had a presentation about “For Those Who Condemn Themselves for Acts Coerced Under Torture.” She discussed how specific torture methods predictably work to coerce victims to harm and kill others; how the various psychological responses of victims while they are being coerced to harm others; and how abuser methods to coerce victims to harm others outside of immediate torture. She discussed assigning all guilt, shame, and moral responsibility for coerced harm to the perpetrators who execute the torture and working to help survivors stand in solidarity with other survivors of extreme abuse to do everything in their power to overcome all self-condemnation for having been coerced through torture to harm other victims.

Dr. Ellen Lacter, Ph.D., is a Psychologist and Academic Coordinator of the Play Therapy Certificate Program at University of California – San Diego, Division of Extended Studies. She specializes in the treatment of  dissociative disorders and complex trauma. Information on Ellen Lacter and Her Research (https://ritualabuse.us/smart/ellen-lacter/) (endritualabuse.org)

Dr. Randy Noblitt, PhD discussed “Ethics, the Community Standard, and the Credibility of Ritual Abuse Allegations.” He talked about to what extent do mental health and other helping professionals believe the stories of ritual abuse survivors. He systematically reviewed the empirical research on the credibility of ritual abuse allegations.

Randy Noblitt, PhD, is a clinical psychologist (licensed in Texas) and professor of clinical psychology at the California School of Professional Psychology at the California School of Psychology at Alliant International University, Los Angeles. He is the principle author of Cult and Ritual Abuse: Its History, Anthropology and Recent Discovery in Contemporary America (Praeger, 1995. 2000), and its third edition, Cult and Ritual Abuse: Narratives, Evidence and Healing Approaches (Praeger, 2014). He is also co-editor and contributing author of the book, Ritual Abuse in the 21st Century: Psychological, Forensic, Social and Political Considerations (Robert Reed, 2008).  Information on Randy Noblitt and His Research https://ritualabuse.us/smart/randy-noblitt/

Cynthia Henrie, MFT discussed “Introduction to Using Sensorimotor Psychotherapy with Clients with DID.” She talked about how Sensorimotor Psychotherapy is a body-oriented, talking therapy developed in the 1980s by Pat Ogden. She disccused how Sensorimotor Psychotherapy blends cognitive and emotional approaches, verbal dialogue, and physical interventions that directly address the implicit memories and neurobiological effects of trauma. A Sensorimotor Psychotherapy approach is a useful tool in the work of treating survivors of ritual abuse, mind control and Dissociative Identity Disorder.

Cynthia Henrie, MFT, is a Board Certified Expert in Traumatic Stress, a Feminist Therapist and specializes in the treatment of trauma and dissociation. Ms. Henrie is the founder and director of the Los Angeles Therapy Network, a network of private practice therapists whose mission is to help women through feminist empowerment, trauma survivors, persons with Dissociative Identity Disorder, LGBTQIA issues, rape/sexual assault, human trafficking/slavery and torture.

At their Saturday and Sunday conference, Survivorship had presentations from Dr. Ellen Lacter, Ph.D., Dr. Randy Noblitt, PhD, Neil Brick and Eileen Aveni LMSW, LCSW, ACSW, BCD.

Neil Brick discussed “Changes in Awareness of Severe Abuse and Child Abuse Crimes Over Twenty Five Years.” He talked about the history of severe abuse and child abuse crimes  and the changes over the last 25 years. In the early 1990s, severe abuse survivors were often believed and supported. Then a backlash started and severe abuse survivors and their supporters were harassed and attacked. The child abuse survivor movement changed and adapted. Ten years ago, research began again to help expose severe abuse crimes. More recently, first in the UK and Australia and now in the United States, a variety of child abuse, severe abuse, sexual harassment and rape cases are bringing public awareness again to the mainstream media of severe  abuse crimes.

Neil Brick is a survivor and researcher 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. (ritualabuse.us) has been published for over 22 years.  Information about Neil Brick (neilbrick.com) and his research (https://ritualabuse.us/smart/neil-brick/).

Dr. Ellen Lacter, Ph.D. talked about “For Those Who Condemn Themselves for Acts Coerced Under Torture.” She discussed how one of the most disturbing horrors described by survivors of extreme abuse is having been subjected to torture to coerce them, while being tortured, to harm or kill other victims. Many survivors describe clear memories of first being subjected this form of abuse as young children. The subsequent moral injury is devastating. Her workshop explained how specific torture methods predictably work to  coerce victims to harm and kill others; the various psychological responses of victims while they are being  coerced to harm others; and abuser methods to coerce victims to harm others outside of immediate torture.

Randy Noblitt, PhD moderated a discussion on “Encouraging a Supportive Environment for Survivors: An Interactive Discussion.” Conference attendees discussed ways to create a supportive environment for ritual abuse survivors.

Eileen Aveni talked about “How to Decrease In-Fighting and Increase Respect for the Gifts of All Internal Parts.” She discussed how understanding one’s internal system is critical to helping every internal part work together for true safety and healing. She talked about how often internal parts are at odds with each other because they are used to ‘doing their jobs” and following orders. But they are really allies in the system and can be helped to learn better and more effective ways to keep everyone in the system safe and help heal the system. Her focus was on how to communicate with parts who might seem particularly difficult to work with, learn to recognize their true gifts to the internal system, how to develop a community of mutual respect, and eventually lead the system to safety and wholeness.

Eileen Aveni, LMSW, LCSW, ACSW, BCD specializes in working with dissociative identity disorder with a focus on ritualized abuse and mind control. For almost 30 years she has worked alongside other major treatment specialists teaching and training clinicians and community groups on the major issues of these survivors and how to help and support them. She was the 2016 Chair of the Ritual Abuse and Mind Control Special Interest Group, a division of the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation. She is a member of the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress, the National Center for Crisis Management, and is a Board Certified Diplomate in Clinical Social Work.

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.

Common Forms of Misinformation and Tactics of Disinformation about Psychotherapy for Trauma Originating in Ritual Abuse and Mind Control By Ellen Lacter, Ph.D., December 18, 2012.
from http://endritualabuse.org/activism/misinfo/
This page on my website seeks to expose a number of common forms of misinformation and tactics of disinformation about psychotherapy for trauma originating in ritual abuse and mind control. Disinformation is distinguished from misinformation in that it is intentionally fraudulent.
Misinformation and disinformation about ritual abuse and mind control trauma and psychotherapy to treat such trauma appear in both paper and electronic media, but are particularly abundant on the Internet on websites of individuals and organizations, bookseller reviews, blogs, newsletters, online encyclopedias, social networking sites, and e-group listservs.

Organizations with a wide range of political and criminal agendas have historically relied on coercive interrogation and brainwashing of various types to force submission and information from enemies and victims, and to indoctrinate and increase cooperation in members and captors.    http://endritualabuse.org/about/mind-control-simple-to-complex/

I was raped at 13 by Jimmy Savile in satanist ritual
A VICTIM of Jimmy Savile’s satanic abuse told yesterday of her sheer terror as she was tied to an altar and raped by the depraved star during a black mass.
http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/371936/I-was-raped-at-13-by-Jimmy-Savile-in-satanist-ritual

Jimmy Savile was part of satanic ring
JIMMY SAVILE beat and raped a 12-year-old girl during a secret satanic ritual in a hospital.
The perverted star wore a hooded robe and mask as he abused the terrifi ed victim in a candle-lit basement.
He also chanted “Hail Satan” in Latin as other paedophile devil worshippers joined in and assaulted the girl at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Buckinghamshire. The attack, which happened in 1975, shines a sinister new light on the former DJ’s 54-year reign of terror.
Savile, who died aged 84 in October 2011, is now Britain’s worst sex offender after police revealed he preyed on at least 450 victims aged eight to 47.
The girl kept her torment hidden for nearly 20 years before finally opening up to therapist Valerie Sinason.
Dr Sinason told the Sunday Express she first spoke to the victim in 1992. “She had been a patient at Stoke Mandeville in 1975 when Savile was a regular visitor.

Prepared Statement of Admiral Stansfield Turner, Director of Central Intelligence
Most of what was known about the Agency’s involvement with behavioral drugs during the investigations in 1975 was contained in a report on Project MKULTRA prepared by the Inspector General’s office in 1963. As a result of that report’s recommendations, unwitting testing of drugs on U.S. citizens was subsequently discontinued….
First, there are 149 MKULTRA subprojects, many of which appear to have some connection with research into behavioral modification, drug acquisition and testing or administering drugs surreptitiously….
2. Research on hypnosis: 8 subprojects, including 2 involving hypnosis and drugs in combination….

False Memory Syndrome

The term False Memory Syndrome was created in 1992 by the False Memory Syndrome. It has been called “a pseudoscientific syndrome that was developed to defend against claims of child abuse.” The FMS was created by parents who claimed to be falsely accused of child sexual abuse. The False Memory Syndrome was described as “a widespread social phenomenon where misguided therapists cause patients to invent memories of sexual abuse.”  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. It has been stated that misinformation on the topic of child sexual abuse is widespread and that the media have contributed to this problem by reporting favorably on unproven and controversial claims like the False Memory Syndrome.

Miller, Alison (2011).  Healing the Unimaginable – Treating Ritual Abuse and Mind Control  is a practical, task-oriented, instructional manual designed to help therapists provide effective treatment for survivors of these most extreme forms of child abuse and mental manipulation. Paperback: 978 1 85575 882 7 Published: October 2011 Publisher: Karnac Books http://us.karnacbooks.com/product/healing-the-unimaginable-treating-ritual-abuse-and-mind-control/30026/

Miller, Alison (2014). Becoming Yourself: Overcoming Mind Control and Ritual Abuse  In contrast to the author’s previous book, Healing the Unimaginable: Treating Ritual Abuse and Mind Control, which was for therapists, this book is designed for survivors of these abuses. It takes the survivor systematically through understanding the abuses and how his or her symptoms may be consequences of these abuses, and gives practical advice regarding how a survivor can achieve stability and manage the life issues with which he or she may have difficulty. The book also teaches the survivor how to work with his or her complex personality system and with the traumatic memories, to heal the wounds created by the abuse. http://us.karnacbooks.com/product/becoming-yourself-overcoming-mind-control-and-ritual-abuse/34803/
