October 31st, Halloween. A time to cash in on patient angst is Big Business for psychotherapists, drug companies and hospitals as I will explain in this post. What you will read below is not my academic conclusions or my distorted and naive understanding of what occurs for patients who believe they have multiple personalities due to being ritually tortured as a child. Instead, you will read about what I experienced while a patient. My psychiatrist convinced me that I was ritually abused as a child. In short, I’ve been there – done that. This is what I and other patients I knew experienced during the Halloween holidays – every year.
Psychotherapists treating women for multiple personalities after diagnosing them with Dissociative Identity Disorder is shameful because their patients routinely regress into a heap of emotions and new memories of child abuse that may also include ritual abuse and on the far extreme, satanic ritual abuse. Therapists entrenched in this psychological treatment usually do not find it their responsibility to question their patient’s memories or to assist their patients in verifying their recall no matter how outrageous and implausible the alleged ritual abuse remembered may be.
Instead, these particular therapists support and encourage more and more memories of ritualized child abuse that may include satanic worship and torture. What occurs in the lives of these patients, usually exhausted and worn down from years of therapy sessions, is intense fear and hyperviligence. Due to constant reinforcement for alleged ritual abuse during psychotherapy and in Internet chat forms, they constantly look over their shoulder believing their alleged persecutors are coming for them. These women are convinced their abusers are planning to abduct them and/or cause them to return to the ritual cult to continue the torture by sending a pre-determined message to commit suicide via an encoded telephone message, for example, because they dared to tell secrets held by the cult they remember being forced to participate in as children.
Most of these ritual and satanic memories of torture, murder, rape, and consuming human body parts are bogus but again, therapists do not care, find it necessary, or their responsibility to find the truth behind these absurd memories born during psychological treatment or other influential sources like self-help books and Internet forums full of like-minded individuals. I am not naive enough to think that ritualized abuse does not happen but take a look at how these particular memories and then look at the content. What you will likely find is that memories were born in therapy or in an environment that encourages and supports widespread ritualized torture of children are more than absurd.
No need to take my word for it. Do a simple Google search using terms like:
- dissociative identity disorder blogs or websites
- multiple personality disorder blogs or websites
- childhood ritual abuse memories
- therapists who treat satanic ritual abuse
Or, if you would like more information check yahoo groups. There, you will find hundreds of groups who pander to these types of memories and alleged ritualized and satanic behaviors.
Halloween is big, big business for psychotherapists who treat patients in an environment that supports and encourages digging for memories of satanic and other ritualized childhood abuse that, upon close examination, are often implausible and too outrageous to have actually occurred.
Does the implausible nature of patient recall deter these therapists from continuing to encourage these questionable and outrageous memories? No. It’s big business, job security, and a hefty paycheck usually cut from an insurance company unaware of what is actually occurring behind the closed doors of therapy largely because these therapists use other diagnostic categories to bill insurance reimbursement such as Borderline Personality Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, anxiety disorders, and eating disorders among others. Insurance companies are unlikely to reimburse treatment for satanic ritual abuse if a therapist was honest about what they are treating behind closed doors. Is fudging medical records for reimbursement illegal? You bet. Fraudulent data supplied to insurance companies for a paycheck illegal? You bet. Does that deter therapists from doing it? No.
The Halloween season is believed to be the most dangerous time of year for patients allegedly ritually abused as children because it is inherently chock full of celebrations – again it’s a huge payday for therapists. Patients being treated for ritual and/or satanic abuse are in a heightened state of anxiety that is often so crippling they are unable to function on a day to day basis. When these patients are parents, their children are impacted as they too experience a parent in a state of unrest, chaos, and unrelenting fear. Watching a parent disintegrate must be terrifying for a child.
So, what actually occurs in the lives of the psychotherapist? Overtime. Overtime. Overtime. Booking double sessions and/or additional weekly or daily sessions to support their patients through the terrifying Halloween season become the norm and are planned for year after year after year.
What actually occurs for Big Pharma? Sales. Sales. Sales. As the anxiety levels and suicidal thinking and/or attempts begin to unfold, more psychiatric drugs are prescribed. Anxiety meds, sleeping meds, antipsychotic meds – anything that will quell the fear and anxiety of those believing they will be abducted and returned to a cult to be sacrificed or otherwise tortured. Anyone under these conditions would cry out for help to get through a day while awaiting the inevitable October 31st — Halloween.
What actually occurs for Hospitals and psychiatric units? They fill up with patients believing one or more of their alter personalities have been ritually tortured as a child and are terrified their alleged abductors are after them. Hospitals and therapist offices are safe havens. Hospital beds fill up as do emergency rooms ill equipped to understand or cope with this type of patient.
Halloween. Autumn. Big business for psychotherapists.
