Ellen Lacter has just posted three new pages to her website http://endritualabuse.org
1. "Empirical and Forensic Evidence of Ritual Abuse," by Randy and Pam Noblitt (2014): http://endritualabuse.org/evidence/evidence-of-ritual-abuse/
This is a chapter from the Noblitts' book: "Cult and Ritual Abuse: Narratives, Evidence, and Healing Approaches, 3rd Edition."
This scholarly work is, to Dr. Lacter's knowledge, the most thorough and recent review of the empirical and forensic evidence of ritual abuse. It is published here by permission of the Noblitts and the publisher.
2. Legal and Ethical Dilemmas for Psychotherapists in Making Reports to Child Protection and Law Enforcement of Suspected Ritual Abuse of Children or Dependent Adults, by Ellen Lacter:
This is a lengthy paper on the many legal and ethical dilemmas facing psychotherapists in relation to making reports to child protective services and law enforcement of suspected ritual abuse or against ritually abusive groups. The conclusion appeals to society's institutions, especially the psychotherapy community and its professional organizations, to advocate more publicly for ritual abuse victims and survivors.
3. "Hypnotism in Warfare," by G.H. Estabrooks (1943): http://endritualabuse.org/about/hypnotism-estabrooks/
This chapter from Estabrooks' book, "Hypnotism," which has not otherwise been published on the internet, offers evidence of what is often referred to as "government mind control," specifically the use of hypnotism and manipulation of individuals' dissociated self-states by intelligence and/or military organizations for the purpose of psychological control of operatives and soldiers to serve intelligence or military purposes. Dr. Lacter will soon add an introduction about the significance of this chapter. For now, it is provided for purposes of research, etc. It is reproduced on this website by permission of the publisher, Dutton.
