Survivorship Webinar – The Spirit of Healing – Janet Thomas –
September 8

Upcoming Webinar:
Saturday, September 8
12:00 noon Pacific Time
Presenter: Janet Thomas
“The Spirit of Healing”

Janet Thomas will discuss her book, “Day Breaks Over Dharamsala — A Memoir of Life Lost and Found,” a journey through spiritual healing from mind control/ritual/sexual abuse. The deep dilemma for survivors of extreme abuse is the fundamental estrangement from the sacred self. How do we reclaim it? Integrate it? Restore the sense of a spirited and nurturing self? How do we connect to the place inside us — beyond and beneath our brilliant minds — that that nurtures and sustains us in our daily lives and in our relationships? These questions, and their answers, will be shared and explored.

Janet Thomas has been in active and conscious healing from ritual abuse/mind control experimentation for 25 years. Her parallel lives include many years as a poet, playwright, activist, magazine editor and author of non-fiction books, including “The Battle in Seattle — The Story Behind and Beyond the WTO Demonstrations.” She lives and teaches in India and on an island in the Pacific Northwest.

“Surviving Your Therapist”

As survivors, many of us feel the need for help from a mental health professional from time to time. Yet too often, attempts to get help seem to sputter along, or even fail all together. Most therapists are caring people with a sincere desire to help, and most clients who seek professional assistance are doing their best to explain their needs and ask for that help.

If most people are mostly doing their best most of the time, why are so many clients left with the feeling that they aren’t getting what they need from therapy, and why do so many therapists appear to be dealing with a completely different person from you, the lady or gentleman sitting in their office?

Often, the answer is that therapists have not experienced severe trauma and are speaking from a ‘healthy lifetime’ point of view, overlaid with specific ideas, theories, and requirements of their profession. Meanwhile, survivors of severe, chronic abuse are speaking from the point of view of people who have rarely, if ever, experienced a safe, content lifestyle, and while many of us are very experienced in seeing therapists, we still don’t know what the heck those therapists are thinking.

The goal of this webinar is to provide the client with some insight into the mindset of the therapist (and therapists with insight into the mindset of the client), so that clients and therapists can communicate effectively.

Alikina has experience as both a survivor and a therapist. She grew up in a household that was emotionally, spiritually, physically, sexually, and ritually abusive. She has a BA in psychology and will finish her Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling this year. Alikina has been seeing clients in a community counseling center for over a year. One of her current projects focuses on collecting terminology that is often misunderstood between therapists and clients.

The aftereffects of extreme child abuse and the resiliency of the human spirit

May 29, 2012 Comments Off on The aftereffects of extreme child abuse and the resiliency of the human spirit

Wanda Karriker’s Survivorship Webinar – The aftereffects of extreme child abuse and the resiliency of the human spirit. http://ritualabuse.us/documents/Karriker-SurvivorshipWebinar.pdf

Dr. Karriker believes that to deny the existence of ritual abuse and/or mind control is to desecrate the memory of victims who died at the hands of evil and to discredit the work of all people who have striven to expose crimes in which abusive rituals, mind control techniques, and similar forms of extreme abuse have been used to sexually exploit, physically harm, emotionally torment, and spiritually damage its victims. In this webinar, she will (1) discuss the rationale for and the development of the Extreme Abuse Survey Series conducted online in English and German in 2007; (2) share responses from more than 2,000 survivors, professional helpers, and child caregivers from six continents which validate that individual survivors are not alone in their struggles with the aftereffects of these unspeakable crimes; and (3) tell webinar participants about the efforts that the EAS researchers have made and will continue to make (via a book to be published later this year in English and German) to honor their commitment to provide opportunities for the voices of extreme abuse survivors to be heard around the world.

Wanda Karriker, Ph.D. is a retired psychologist who wrote the novel, “Morning, Come Quickly,” to share what she has learned personally and professionally about the after effects of extreme child abuse and the resiliency of the human spirit. She is a co-developer of the Extreme Abuse Survey Series. ( http://extreme-abuse-survey.net)
