Confronting the Spiritual Issues in Ritual Abuse

Survivors of abuse by ritualistic organized perpetrator groups report numerous experiences designed to destroy their spiritual integrity and leave them believing that they are so evil that no one but the perpetrators will accept them. These experiences include simulation of religious figures such as God, Jesus, and Satan, and the afterlife including heaven and hell; designation of certain internal parts of the victim to be demons or have “demonic attachments,” and most chillingly, forced childhood participation in rape and murder followed by systematic shaming of the victim as “evil.” Many parts of each survivor believe the perpetrators’ lies about how evil he or she must be. These experiences raise existential questions for survivors, such as why such things happen, why there is no divine intervention, and why such groups continue to exist without being stopped. We shall look at various ways of making meaning of such experiences, and whether these ways deal effectively with the horror of spiritual abuse.

Dr. Alison Miller has a Ph.D. from the University of British Columbia and is a semi-retired psychologist in private practice in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. She has worked with survivors of ritual abuse and mind control since 1991. She has been a fellow of the ISST-D (International Society for the Study of Trauma & Dissociation) since 2013. She is a member of the Board of Directors of Survivorship, a member of the advisory board of the Eleos Support Network (for ritual abuse), and the 2017 Chair of the Ritual Abuse and Mind Control Special Interest Group of the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation. Her books include: Becoming Yourself: Overcoming Mind Control and Ritual Abuse (for survivors), and Healing the Unimaginable: Treating Ritual Abuse and Mind Control (for therapists). She has contributed chapters on ritual abuse and mind control to Noblitt & Noblitt’s Ritual Abuse in the 21st Century (2008), Breitenbach’s Inside Views from the Dissociated Worlds of Extreme Violence: Human Beings as Merchandise (2015), Sinason & van der Merwe’s Shattered: Multiple Selves, Multiple Voices – speaking on behalf of silenced survivors (2016), and (with Heather Gingrich) Gingrich & Gingrich’s Treating Trauma in Christian Counselling (to be published in 2017).

Preek 4de zondag door het jaar C, 2016.

Standaard

pray non stop

Het Woord van God ontleedt de bedoelingen en de gedachten van de mens. Volgens mij is dat precies wat er gebeurt in het Evangelie van vandaag.

jozef2001Verleden week zondag hoorden we hoe Jezus in Nazareth kwam, waar Hij was grootgebracht, en hoe Hij in de Synagoge – in de kleine dorpsgebedshuis –  de Blijde Boodschap verkondigde met de woorden van Jesaja: “De Geest des Heren is over mij gekomen, omdat Hij mij gezalfd heeft. Hij heeft mij gezonden om aan armen de Blijde Boodschap te brengen, aan gevangenen hun vrijlating bekend te maken, en aan blinden dat zij zullen zien: om verdrukten te laten gaan in vrijheid, om een genadejaar af te kondigen van de Heer.” Iedereen was blij met Hem. Vandaag horen we het vervolg en ze gooien Hem de Synagoge uit en willen Hem van de heuvel afgooien, de afgrond in.

Wat is hier gebeurd?
