An excellent, gentle, kind and safe resource for surivors of ritual abuse. This book includes instructions for the reader to stop and check in as well as triggers warnings before detailed sharing and information. Highly recommended for survivors.

Should be read with 'A Courage To Heal' and Laura Davis has a recommendation on the front cover.

This book really extends 'A Courage To Heal' to its natural conclusion; remember if you forgot your abuse, it was because your body and brain protected you against the pain with the miracle of forgetting. But that abuse had to be painful, and satanic ritual abuse is the real source of that abuse.

This book is a whole mood. It says... something when one of the people blurbed on the back is extensively quoted through out the book.
I'm reading a 1994 first edition and just woooooo.

It's a shame this book didn't get the attention it deserves in the field. It's an intimidating topic, and most survivors seem to buy it but then are too afraid to read it.

Best in class. A must read for mental health professionals and survivors who want to know more about ritual abuse (RA/SRA). This book discusses dissociation and DID, but is not limited to that population. The book mentions trauma based mind control, and much of what she explains applies to that form of abuse and recovery too.

Most MC systems, however, have RA/SRA so they should read this book before trying to read the more difficult (more triggering) books ...more

“Violators cannot live with the truth: survivors cannot live without it. There are those who still, once again, are poised to invalidate and deny us. If we don't assert our truth, it may again be relegated to fantasy. But the truth won't go away. It will keep surfacing until it is recognized. Truth will outlast any campaigns mounted against it, no matter how mighty, clever, or long. It is invincible. It's only a matter of which generation is willing to face it and, in so doing, protect future generations from ritual abuse.” 115 likes
“…is methodical abuse, often using indoctrination, aimed at breaking the will of another human being. In a 1989 report, the Ritual Abuse Task Force of the L.A. County Commission for Women defined ritual abuse as: “Ritual Abuse usually involves repeated abuse over an extended period of time. The physical abuse is severe, sometimes including torture and killing. The sexual abuse is usually painful,humiliating, intended as a means of gaining dominance over the victim.The psychological abuse is devastating and involves the use of ritual indoctrination. It includes mind control techniques which convey to the victim a profound terror of the cult members …most victims are in a state of terror, mind control and dissociation” (Pg. 35-36)” 13 likes
