Some websites worth reading about ritual abuse and dissociative identity disorder

5 May 2021

Esther's story is certainly not an isolated one. For decades now clients all over the western world have been telling about satanic ritual abuse. Below is a - very incomplete - list of a number of worthwhile websites on this theme. Responsibility for the content is of course with the authors.


This is the website of the Dutch Knowledge Centre for Transgenerational Violence. Founded as a result of the first national research on ritual abuse in 1994, when the recommendation for further investigation by the government was not followed. Lots of information, own research on ritual abuse, articles with background information on dissociative identity disorder, false memory, mind control and more.

Website about ritual abuse, especially meant for survivors and therapists.



Website of Ellen Lactor, psychologist in the United States who has been working with victims of organized and ritual abuse for decades. Many interesting articles, among others about legal and ethical aspects of forced perpetration, but also good information about mind control techniques used in cults.

Website of Michael Salter, Professor of Criminology at the University of New South Wales, Australia. Salter specializes in the investigation of organized sexual abuse. He also publishes on ritual abuse, the misinformation of the 'false memory movement' and the unjustified prejudices often heard in the media against the testimony of victims of organized and ritual violence. 

American website with a lot of information about ritual abuse and mind control, from survivors and therapists from the western world. Also a lot of attention for lawsuits in the US around ritual abuse.

Information about ritual abuse and mind control, with also a list of many more international websites about ritual abuse, arranged by country:

Websites about dissociative identity disorder

Many victims of satanic ritual abuse develop dissociative identity disorder (DIS), formerly known as multiple personality disorder (MPS). It is generally assumed that DIS is the result of very severe, chronic traumatization at a very young age (assumed to be before the sixth year of life), when the brain is still developing. Below you will find a number of websites that explain a lot about the development and treatment of DID.

The Dutch care standard for dissociative identity disorders, which was published February 2021. In it, unfortunately, there is no attention for DIS that has been deliberately created in satanic cults, called DIS 2.0 by some.

Website of the international society for the study of trauma and dissociation. The goal of the ISST-D is to promote understanding of chronic trauma and dissociation among practitioners, scientists, and society at large.

Website of the European Society for Trauma and Dissociation. Goal of this European organization is to increase knowledge of trauma and dissociation, to connect therapists and other professionals in this field within Europe and to stimulate research.
