The Battle to Stop Ritual Abuse
For over 25 years, survivors and their advocates have worked to stop ritual abuse by educating the general public about these crimes. Through an intense struggle this research has been made public and survivors have been helped.
A backlash continues, covering up crimes against children and protecting a hierarchical and unjust social structure that exists by propagandizing and mind controlling its members. Exposing the backlash and its true motives and how their work continues to promote social injustice will be discussed in this presentation.
Neil Brick is a survivor of ritual abuse and mind control. He has spent years empowering himself and ensuring that the research written by survivors and their advocates is available to all. His work continues to educate the public about child abuse, trauma and ritual abuse crimes. His child abuse and ritual abuse newsletter S.M.A.R.T. has been published for over 20 years. http://neilbrick.com

Trauma Recovery – A Path of Human Development
In my talk, I will discuss the three phases of trauma recovery, which I call 1) the stabilization phase, 2) the processing phase, and 3) the surmounting phase. I will talk briefly about each phase, largely focusing on the transition from the second to third phase – processing to surmounting the trauma.
Anne Redelfs is a retired psychiatrist. Disgruntled by the excessive use of drugs on the mentally ill, she left medicine to study developmental psychology. She published her findings in The Awakening Storm – a book about the impact of Hurricane Katrina on New Orleans and the impact of trauma on humans.

Social Security Benefits Eligibility as a Tool for Recovery
The Social Security Administration offers two programs that may provide income, health insurance and access to a variety of adjunctive social services that facilitate recovery. The application process for these programs and the necessity of securing the support of treating clinicians is often overwhelming for individuals already experiencing the effects of trauma. It is thus useful to be aware of the programs and the application process and time frames for survivors and treating professionals in advance of any need. (Skype presentation)
Randy Noblitt is a clinical psychologist and professor of psychology at the California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant International University, Los Angeles, California.
Pam Perskin is a non-attorney representative in independent private practice advocating for claimants for Social Security disability programs. They have written and presented on the Social Security application process, particularly as it applies to trauma survivors, and have written in both professional and lay publications about this subject. They are also the authors of Cult and Ritual Abuse: Narrative, Evidence and Healing Approaches (Praeger, 2014).

The Long Voyage Out: The Epic Challenge of Recovery from Organized Abuse.
The essential challenge of healing is to facilitate the natural drive to get back into native equilibrium – to find the banished orphans of extreme experience and bring them back home to conscious awareness. And the good news is, you don’t have to do it alone.
Carmen Holiday is a survivor of human trafficking, ritual abuse-torture and trauma-based mind control. She has been an advocate for other survivors since 2001, developing and facilitating trauma recovery workshops and presenting as a survivor of RA-MC for several organizations.

Shattering the Silence
Connie will be speaking about her work with FACSA, the neurobiology of sexual assault, child abuse statistics, her story and child abuse prevention and solutions.
Connie Lee, BS Psychology is the Founder/President of the FACSA Foundation (Family and Friends Fighting Against Child Sexual Assault), in Springhill, La. The FACSA Foundation provides support services for families of child sexual assault, such as attorney’s, counselors, support group, guidance, and what each family needs for their case. We also educate the community on prevention of child sexual assault, through our programs such as the Good Touch/Bad Touch Program from ChildHelp USA; Kid’s Safe ID Kit’s from the National Exploited Children’s Foundation; and the FACSA Defense Program, where we go to schools for free to teach teens about abusive dating relationships, warning signs, and 30 minutes of hands on self defense.

The Hero’s Journey: Healing from Extreme Abuse
Many survivors of abuse (extreme or otherwise) carry a deep sense of unworthiness and victimization – a belief that they somehow deserved the terrible treatment they received and are now “broken” or “damaged.”  The objective of my presentation is to discuss the healing process in the context of coming home to one’s true divine nature, using the metaphor of the hero’s journey to describe the shift out of a victim self-view into one of empowerment and wholeness.  My talk will address not only the benefits of healing that are available to the individual, but also the positive ramifications for society and the broader global community.
Lily spent the first 20 years of her life surviving incest, satanic ritual abuse, mind control, and child trafficking.  She began her healing journey in 2000, with emphasis on energetic methods for addressing the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of recovery.
