WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn., Aug. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- This weekend S.M.A.R.T. is having a conference August 17 - 18, 2019 in Connecticut. https://ritualabuse.us/smart-conference/
Alison Miller, Ph.D. is a retired clinical psychologist who practiced in Victoria, B.C., Canada. She worked with survivors of organized abuse, including ritual abuse and mind control from 1990 to 2017. Alison is the author of Healing the Unimaginable: Treating Ritual Abuse and Mind Control (for therapists), Becoming Yourself: Overcoming Mind Control and Ritual Abuse (for survivors).
Alison will discuss via Skype "Deception by Organized Abuser Groups: Helping Your Front People and Your Insiders Recognize the Lies and Tricks Which Keep You Enslaved." She will talk about how survivors of abuse by mind-controlling abuser groups have parts that have been trained to obey abusers because they believe lies the abusers told them. She will talk about how their power over survivors depends on their young parts believing the abusers' lies. If survivors learn to recognize when their emotions and behavior are influenced by these deceptions, and to discover the ways in which they were deceived, they can increase their freedom from the abuser group.
Neil Brick is a survivor of ritual abuse and mind control. His work continues to educate the public about child abuse, trauma and ritual abuse crimes http://neilbrick.com.
"A Survivor's View of Recovery from Ritual Abuse." He will discuss how recovery from ritual abuse can take many years. This may include working through memories, building functionality and developing effective ways of interacting and integrating emotions. He will talk about the effects social issues have on survivors.
