Our brochure is meant to create more awareness among social workers and other professionals who may encounter survivors of ritual abuse and organized violence within their line of work. As a result of the structural abuse the victims often develop a dissociative identity disorder (DID, a multiple personality disorder), a diagnosis which is essential to heal the complex trauma these survivors have.
