Survivorship Ritual Abuse and Child Abuse 2016 Conference - Stop Mind Control and Programs
Wendy Hoffman somehow survived various forms of high level secret mind control. She tried all her life to get free and has finally succeeded. Now she wants to help and support other survivors in their quest for freedom. She is a LCSW-C with decades of experience and is the author of The Enslaved Queen, a Memoir about Electricity and Mind Control, published in 2014 and White Witch in a Black Robe, a True Story about Criminal Mind Control, 2015, both by Karnac Books, London. Her book of poetry, Forceps, is forthcoming in 2016.
Self-Esteem Loosens Mind Control
Mind control roots in people’s minds even though it does not benefit them in any way. Why? One reason is that strong feelings hold the mandates in place. Where do these feelings come from? From the perpetrators, not their victims. The perpetrators begin manipulating in these feelings during infancy and before the infants and children even know who they are. This workshop presentation will discuss the kinds of feelings the mind controllers place in their victims to secure that they will not try to break free of their poisonous commands, and how improving self-esteem can help loosen mind control. But people can break free. They can and are and have. Right now.
This workshop discussed:
1. Explore these early emotional states
2. Understand the distortions and lies told to children
3. Help loosen programming through improved self-esteem.
Integration will also be discussed.

Internal Keys to Safety
Survivors' safety is endangered both externally by parts who maintain ongoing contact with perpetrators and respond to cues, and internally by parts trained to punish the person for forbidden behavior such as disclosures. She gave practical suggestions for survivors to achieve and maintain safety both externally and internally. (Skype presentation)

Dr. Alison Miller was our keynote speaker for the 2015 conference.
Overcoming Mind Control: Keys to Recovery
(a talk for survivors of ritual abuse and mind control)
She presented nine keys to recovery for survivors of mind control and ritual abuse: acknowledging multiplicity, letting internal leaders take charge, improving the inner world and its government and the jobs of insiders, achieving physical safety (defeating access programming), challenging the abuser group's lies, selecting your goal of healing or stabilization, working through traumatic memories systematically and thoroughly, choosing a safe therapist who is open to learning, and allowing parts to join together naturally when they are ready.
Alison Miller’s Second Workshop
Building Internal Cooperation
Many survivors of ritual abuse or mind control have an ongoing war between their front person who tries to manage everyday life, and the internal parts who continue to perform tasks assigned by the abuser group. This impasse leaves survivors unstable and subject to flashbacks, self-harm and suicidal impulses, which increase in severity if the front person tries to access the traumatic memories. Learn how to build internal cooperation and community among your selves.

Survivors Moving Forward
On May 4 – 5, 2013 Survivorship held a conference at the Executive Inn & Suite in Oakland, CA
At our 2013 conference our keynote speaker was Steve Frankel.
A copy of this presentation taped later is at:
Steve Frankel is a Board Certified Clinical and Forensic Psychologist and an Attorney at Law, who practices both professions in San Francisco’s East Bay. A Clinical Prof. of Psychology at USC, he began recognizing childhood trauma in his adult patient case-load in 1980 and has specialized in working with that population ever since. He joined the Int’l. Society for the Study of Trauma & Dissociation in the 1990s and was the consultant to the Trauma Program at Del Amo Hospital from 1993 until 2001. He was President of the ISSTD in 2002 and has been active in developing and teaching courses in trauma treatment as well as publishing chapters in books and professional journals in the trauma field. His presentation was: ”Validation: science is (finally!) catching up to what survivors and clinicians have known for years.”
This one-hour keynote address seeks to honor and validate survivors and their treating clinicians by reviewing the developments in scientific research which show, among other things, that “alters” have different brain scans from each other, that people with properly diagnosed DID have different brain scans than the scans of role-players, that people diagnosed with DID are not “making it up out of fantasy” that specific forms of child abuse leave predictable impacts on developing brains, which in turn lead to predictable symptoms, that treatment which implements the ISSTD Treatment Guidelines recover more rapidly and effectively than other forms of treatment, that research on RA/MC survivors – many of whom are treating clinicians – is now coming to fruition and will make significant contributions to the understanding and treatment of survivors.
