Recognition of ritual abuse and mind control in survivors is complex, as they often present with clues that are not obvious to a clinician unfamiliar with this more complex and severe type of trauma. This presentation will provide an overview of the clinical features and clues that ritual abuse and mind control may be present in the background of a client, despite apparently unrelated presenting problems. Participants will be introduced to both government (Monarch/MkUltra) and cult mind control programming. A brief understanding of how it can be misdiagnosed as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder will also be included.

This webinar features two professional, licensed and board certified art therapists providing an overview of the unique role of the creative arts in the treatment of trauma related disorders. Starting with a basic introduction to the neurobiology of trauma, we will review the importance of a “bottom up” approach (making art) as a way to bypass words, which may be largely unavailable when processing traumatic material.

Childhood trauma has the potential to overwhelm the coping ability of children and can create developmental changes in brain structure and function. These changes to the developing mind allow for short term survival and sacrifice long term effective functioning. Adolescence is a time when these changes have the potential for both becoming more deeply embedded or largely rectified as the person moves toward adulthood.

​​​​​​​To recognize dissociative process in your patients requires a shift in the clinician’s attention to take in not only the foreground specificity of what the patient says and does but to add the much more diffuse and somewhat vague background presentation of “how the patient is and how they communicate” what they are trying to convey and not convey.

​​​​​​​This session will present the findings of an Australian interview study with women disclosing organised abuse in adulthood and the mental health professionals who support them. Organised abuse refers to the sexual abuse of multiple children by multiple perpetrators acting in a coordinated way, and is reported by a significant minority of clients in dissociative disorder clinics.

There are several patterns and behaviors that are common in survivors of ritualized abuse, and these show up in therapy in ways that impact treatment and the therapeutic relationship. Being able to identify those common themes helps both therapist and client see both the adaptive value in them, and how they need to change to allow the client to become self-empowered and free. This workshop focuses on identifying those common patterns and behaviors, and how they need to evolve.

Victims of organized abuse, in particular mind control and ritual abuse, frequently have deliberately designed personality systems with parts trained to maintain the security of the perpetrator group. Survivors' physical safety is endangered by parts trained to maintain ongoing contact with perpetrators. I shall discuss the different kinds of access training, with suggestions for preventing and avoiding ongoing access. Survivors are also endangered by parts trained to punish the person for forbidden behavior such as disclosures, so that telling secrets results in decompensation. I shall talk about the structure of the organized personality system, internal hierarchies, the role of punisher parts and their bosses, and ways to prevent or stop symptoms such as emotional flooding, pain, and self-harm which result from punisher parts doing their jobs.
