Organized Ritual Violence in Germany – Claudia Fischer and Hannah C. Rosenblatt
In May 2017 we opened up a German website (https://www.infoportal-rg.de) with cases and evidence for organized ritual abuse and violence. We collect verdicts and publicly proven cases of cults that are involved in sexual violence and ideologically based homicides. In our presentation, we will share the concept and obstacles of this website, share information about the survivors’ community in Germany, give some examples of German cases and the state of public discussion in Germany
Claudia Fischer is a German journalist (TV, radio, print and online) with 20 years of expertise in investigating stories about ritual abuse and sexual trauma. She invented the https://www.infoportal-rg.de website. She coordinates a group of survivors and other experts (lawyers, therapists, social workers) behind this project as chief editor.
Hannah C. Rosenblatt is a German survivor of organized violence. After their freeing, they started documenting their life with DID at einblogvonvielen.org which was followed by the podcast “Viele-Sein” in 2015. They educate about trauma and violence against people with disabilities, fight for needs-based psychotherapy and assist Claudia Fischer in the Infoportal project.
Should I seek freedom? Should I go through with recovery? A workshop to help you decide and a discussion of its benefits – Wendy Hoffman
If you’re living as an unaware mind controlled victim, you’re living in a vapor, seeing yourself and life through an indistinct veil of mist. You have strong emotions that can break through numbness, but you don’t know who you are or why you react the ways you do. You may also feel trapped in hurtful and unloving relationships and not able to mature into who you really are. All that can be changed if you are willing to go through with a recovery. It is hard work. It can be exhilarating. The enemy group will try to stop you. But if you want, you can find out who you are and what your life has been and can be in the future. This presentation explores some of the benefits of relinquishing slavery and learning who you are. Self-knowledge is the way out.
Wendy Hoffman had amnesia for most of her life. When she regained memory, she wrote books about her forgotten life. Wendy has published three memoirs, The Enslaved Queen, White Witch in a Black Robe and in 2020, A Brain of My Own. The Enslaved Queen has been translated into German. Her book of poetry, Forceps, was also published along with a book of essays, From the Trenches, written with Alison Miller. Her most recent memoir, After Amnesia, is published on the SmartNews website. It is presently being translated into German. What gives her life meaning is helping other surviving victims.
Complex Trauma Assessment Problems – Dr. Rainer Hermann Kurz
This presentation addresses serious assessment issues related to complex trauma in an extreme abuse setting that had life changing consequences. Many of the incidents observed by Becker, Karriker, Overkamp, & Rutz (2008) in their Extreme Abuse Survey (EAS) apply to this case. In a court setting the textbook of Miller (2012) and the Epstein, Schwartz & Schwartz (2011) book of UK case vignettes were drawn upon to explain the ‘unbelievable’ sequence of events that had unfolded.
An Advocate’s Journey into Extreme Abuse – Dr. Rainer Hermann Kurz
This presentation provides an autobiographical account of advocacy in a case of global significance. A mother emailed a warning to the advocate in his multiple roles as a psychologist, faith leader, and family man. She alleged that her father sexually assaulted her toddler son (i.e. his grandson) and that authority representatives took her child into care as three Psychiatrists had found her ‘delusional.’ On a final session with a 4th court appointed expert (a Clinical Psychologist) the advocate was allowed to sit in the back of a session and found the mother reasonable, clear, and fluent in her responses. Disclosures before and after the session raised the possibility that the mother was a victim of Child Sexual Abuse (CSA), and that the sexual assault was meticulously planned to re-victimise her, destroy her credibility as a potential witness/complainant, and gain control of the toddler.
Rainer Kurz is a Chartered Psychologist based in London. Since 1990 Rainer has worked in Research & Development roles for leading test publishers. His PhD dissertation was on enhancing the validity and utility of ability testing. Rainer developed 50+ psychometric tests and authored more than 100 publications.

Ritual Abuse Survivors Experience of Research – Dr. Laurie Matthew OBE
This presentation will explore the background and ongoing work of two survivor led and innovative non-profit organisations based in Scotland. Ritual Abuse Network Scotland (RANS) has provided support and information to adult survivors of ritual abuse for 20 years now and Eighteen And Under has worked for almost 30 years with young abuse survivors who are under 18. Both organisations have been at the frontier of raising awareness about ritual abuse in the UK and beyond. She will also share findings from recent research investigating ritual abuse survivors’ experiences when seeking help from agencies and research exploring the needs of young abuse survivors for confidential services. The importance of survivor led participatory research will also be discussed in the presentation.
Dr. Laurie Matthew OBE is founder and Manager of Eighteen And Under an award winning charity providing confidential support services to young people who have been abused. She is also a founder member and advisor to Izzy’s Promise the UK’s leading charity for survivors of organised and ritual abuse and of the Ritual Abuse Network Forum (RANS).

A History of Ritual Abuse – Dr. Randy Noblitt
This two-hour presentation traces the history of ritual abuse, and critically evaluates the chronology and evolution of this topic in the scholarly literature. We will review and discuss the definition of ritual abuse from the APA Dictionary of Psychology along with other definitions and conceptualizations. We will consider ritual abuse allegations in the context of the backlash movement to including the false memory syndrome and sociocognitive theories. We will review contemporary international allegations of ritual abuse, also exploring historic accounts of ritual abuse. We will examine the frequently noted psychological sequelae in ritual abuse.

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.

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 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.
