The Migration Model: A New Approach to Mind Control Treatment in Ritual Abuse Clients

Saturday, March 24
10:45 AM - 12:15 PM
Location: Salon 12

Organized perpetrator groups often deliberately create DID in the ritually abused client and then install mind control (MC) to train parts to work for them and stay silent.  Common MC systems can include Monarch programming, generational satanism, witchcraft groups, and others.  Removing MC systems presents major challenges to the therapist and client.  Alison Miller remarks, “Ritual abuse is mind control by a religious group.”  Parts are taught a conflicted spirituality:  to believe in goodness, in God, or positive spiritual being is bad.  The usual approach to MC removal involves helping parts learn they were deceived, and helping them choose to do good. This presenter has developed an alternative approach. Preliminary results indicate that survivors are able to get free of MC by “migrating” personality parts away from “the dark side” (parts often use this or similar terms to denote where they currently live) and into “the light side” (denoting freedom or love or where God or the positive spiritual being exists).  This presentation will cover the MIGRATION MODEL methodology, and the spirituality issues involved, and will compare this method with the usual approach to MC removal.

Most showed significant dissociative symptoms.
