People who have survived ritual abuse or mind control experiments have often been silenced, accused of lying, mocked and disbelieved. Clinicians working with survivors often find themselves isolated, facing the same levels of disbelief and denial from other professionals within the mental health field.

This report – based on proceedings from a conference on the subject – presents knowledge and experience from both clinicians and survivors to promote understanding and recovery from organised and ritual abuse, mind control and programming. The book combines clinical presentations, survivors’ voices, and research material to help address the ways in which we can work clinically with mind control and cult programming from the perspective of relational psychotherapy.
