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.
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).

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.

Sold as salvation, Sixties Scoop placed children in abusive system
Caution: This story contains details of abuse that may be disturbing to readers
By Lisa Strong, for CBC News Oct 01, 2016
….I am going to tell you my story of direct colonization from being a child of the Sixties Scoop. I will give you detailed information about my history to let you know how far I have come in my life’s journey. I warn you, though, my story is graphic and extremely painful to read.
….We were a small community with aunties, uncles, cousins, and grandparents that all looked out for each other. When I was one, Children’s Aid Society came to Jones Road and took all the children away as part of the sixties sweep.
Six homes in six years
My sister, brother and I were sent to Winnipeg. We lived in several different foster homes around Winnipeg for six years. When I was four, we were sent to live with a pastor and his wife. They had 12 foster kids and five biological teenagers. As soon as we arrived, I was sexually abused by their sons….
We moved to two different American cities as the adopted family was transferred to different churches. Their sons continued the sexual and physical abuse right where they left off when I was four. We also experienced ritual abuse in the name of the Lord from the parents. They showed us graphic pictures and movies of the devil and where my soul would go if I wasn’t saved…..
When she left (her sister), the abuse escalated. My brother and I were taken to the basement of the home and raped in front of each other by the sons daily, or whenever they got a chance. This sexual and physical abuse went on for the next two years.
While the parents themselves did not sexually abuse us, the mother hurt us physically….
To stop the abuse, I cut my legs. I have 43 scars on my legs that saved me from the sexual abuse. I put the blood from my wounds in my undergarments to protect myself, saying I was on my period and not available to be abused….
My brother and sister were both diagnosed with schizophrenia. I was the only one not diagnosed with this illness. My siblings and I had to search for each other. We were reunited, but there was no happy ending. We each carry our own scars and nightmares that will never go away….
I am currently in my third year of working towards my bachelor’s degree in urban and inner-city studies at the University of Winnipeg….
I hope my story provides others with an understanding of how the Sixties Scoop has affected many of us Indigenous survivors. We all have our own healing process and life journey ahead of us…..
describes graphic violence
The truth about British army abuses in Iraq must come out
Politicians and military chiefs dismiss victims’ claims and blame moneygrabbing lawyers. But the 326 cases already settled by the MoD tell a different story
Monday 3 October 2016
….allegations have been made about abuse of prisoners and civilians from the outset of the Iraq war in 2003. Three colonels in the divisional headquarters complained about mistreatment of prisoners within the first four weeks. In two public inquiries (into the deaths of Baha Mousa and Hamid al-Sweady), it was revealed that the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) – the most respected body in the world in matters of international humanitarian law – had complained about prisoner abuse.
….The Baha Mousa inquiry heard that his military interrogators were using the so called “five techniques”, banned in 1978, which violate the Geneva conventions; the interrogators said they “answered to London” (the MoD) and not the chain of command. If this is correct then the MoD is at fault: the five techniques now amount to torture.
Many of the allegations concern physical, sexual and religious abuse during interrogation. The conduct appears systematic, and the MoD has video recordings. It could easily verify any claim and now needs to come clean: I cannot believe that any defence chief would wish to defend physical, sexual or religious humiliation in interrogation.
Finally, it has been well documented that there were secret detention facilities in the UK area of operations which appear to have bypassed prisoner of war facilities. If this is correct, it is in violation of the Geneva conventions and, if the prisoners were spirited out of the country, then that could amount to a grave breach.
Theresa May defends child abuse inquiry as lawyer resigns
29 September 2016
Theresa May has insisted the inquiry into child sexual abuse in England and Wales will not be scaled back despite recent setbacks.
The prime minister said she and Home Secretary Amber Rudd still had confidence in the inquiry.
She spoke after the lead counsel to the hearings, Ben Emmerson, was suspended on Wednesday and the inquiry’s second most senior lawyer resigned.
Elizabeth Prochaska’s resignation is said to be not linked to recent events….
On Wednesday the inquiry said it had “recently become very concerned about aspects of Ben Emmerson QC’s leadership” of his team and he had been suspended so these could be properly investigated.
The BBC understands more than one complaint has been made against him.
Preliminary hearings for the inquiry began in March at the Royal Courts of Justice in London.
But Prof Alexis Jay, the current chairwoman, is the fourth person to have been appointed to lead the inquiry, following three earlier resignations….
The inquiry was set up to examine whether public bodies including the police have failed in their duty to protect children from sexual abuse. It will also examine claims of abuse involving “well-known people”.

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.
A unique feature of this book is that it addresses the reader as if he or she is dissociative, and directs some information and exercises towards the internal leaders of the personality system, teaching them how to build a cooperative and healing inner community within which information is shared, each part’s needs are met, and traumatic memories can be worked through successfully.
