Synopsis

A personal but also scholarly journey into the clandestine and confusing world of ritual abuse, this book provides unique insights into the catastrophic experiences of ritual abuse survivors and their efforts to find healing through psychological treatment. This revised edition provides contemporary revelations about cults in existence today and also new therapies developed since the first edition was published in 1995. Co-authored by a clinical psychologist and the executive director of a professional organization dedicated to treating survivors of cult and ritual abuse, this edition will be of interest to both academic and professional markets. The special legal dilemmas, survival problems and day-to-day life experiences of these survivors are examined in a scholarly but sensitive manner. The book presents the idea that ritual abuse is an age-old phenomenon found in many cultures throughout the world. That ritual abuse causes a variety of specific psychiatric symptoms is noted. Special attention is given to the diagnosis dissociative identity disorder that is frequently found among ritual abuse survivors.

Suggestions are offered for effectively dealing with the various social and legal problems that result from this severe form of abuse. New diagnoses-cult and ritual trauma disorder-are proposed for this newly identified problem.

JAMES RANDALL NOBLITT is a clinical psychologist in Dallas, Texas, where he is Director of the Center for Counseling and Psychological Services./ePAMELA SUE PERSKIN is Executive Director of the International Council on Cultism and Ritual Trauma and a lecturer on child abuse./e
