Stichting Alternatief Beraad has made a documentary about Transgenerational Organized Violence (TOV) with the title: Nothing is what it seems.
Unfortunately, we can not offer this video for free. This professionally made video has asked for a large part of our budget and our organization is entirely dedicated to volunteers.
In order to be able to make up for some of the costs incurred, we ask you to donate 50 euros to the Foundation. Money that will be fully used to care for victims of Transgenerational Organized Violence.

With this brochure the Alternative Council Foundation wants to create more awareness of a certain issue which social workers and other professionals may encounter within their line of
work. It concerns individuals who are survivors of abuse that took place or still takes place within satanic cults. As a result the victims usually develop a dissociative identity disorder (DID, a
The Alternative Council, founded in 2005, does conduct research because there is still great ignorance, incomprehension and unbelief in regards to these forms of abuse (also amongst
social workers, doctors and police agents).
The aim is to promote recognition for survivors (both within the social support system and within society) by offering the results of research and thereby breaking the taboo surrounding
ritual abuse. One tool is this brochure.

Empowering recovery from childhood trauma
Blue Knot Foundation, formerly Adults Surviving Child Abuse (ASCA), is the leading national organisation working to improve the lives of 1 in 4 adult Australians (5 million) who have experienced childhood trauma. This includes people who have experienced child abuse in all its forms, neglect, domestic violence in childhood and other adverse childhood events. This is known as complex trauma.

“Noblitt and Perskin have brought together, in this one book, important writings from two dozen international, multidisciplinary team members. They are experts on the psychological, forensic, social and political consequences and ramifications of ritual abuse.” “The book explores cross-cultural reports of abusive ritual life threatening abusive ordeals, a redefining of the confusion of language toward the end of moving toward a greater clarity and uniformity in terminology, and an informed discussion of available literature regarding international reports of abuse.” “Diagnosis, controversy, cult brain washing, satanic abuse, police and media handling, prayer, inner healing, patterns in mind control, and therapy are also discussed in detail.” “I found the case studies to be insightful, informational, and helpful. The work is thoroughly researched and well documented” “This is a book that should be read by mental health workers, pastors, professional counselors, political leaders, and concerned laymen.”

Ritual Abuse & Torture in Australia
David W. Neswald, M.A. M.F.C.C. in collaboration with Catherine Gould, Ph.D. and Vicki Graham-Costain, Ph.D. The California Therapist, Sept./Oct. 1991, 47-50
Increasingly, cases of Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD) and Satanic Ritualistic Abuse (SRA) are being reported in the psychotherapeutic community. Though controversy concerning authenticity remains, such cases are slowly gaining in acceptability as a genuine social and psychopathological phenomenon. Concurrently, the etiological underpinnings and treatment demands of these special patients are being unraveled and understood as never before. As a result, it is becoming increasingly clear that perhaps the most demanding treatment aspects of such cases concern the problems posed by what is known as “cult programming.”
Common Programs Observed in Survivors of Satanic Ritualistic Abuse
This paper has described spin programming, a type of abuse that until recently was unknown to psychotherapists, but has obviously been in use by ritual abusers for many years, at least four decades, and probably much longer. It is possible that most or perhaps all patients with histories of ritual abuse have been subjected to spin programming. Patients who were born into cults that practice ritual abuse (as opposed to having been recruited later in life) are probably more likely to have experienced spin programming, and their spin programming is likely to be both more intensive and more sophisticated.
Spin programming presents some formidable obstacles for psychotherapy. It is apparent that, in the past, lack of awareness and understanding of spin programming by the therapeutic community has contributed to many problems in therapy, and that complete healing has probably been impossible without facing and dealing effectively with this type of mind control technique.
It is hoped that this paper will provide a valuable service by making information available to therapists that may contribute to significant breakthroughs for their patients and ultimately allow for their complete healing, while also providing testable hypotheses to researchers interested in ritual abuse.
