In case you hadn't heard, Survivorship is giving a series of Webinars on various aspects of ritual abuse and healing. Webinars are seminars on the Web -- basically, conference calls plus slides. All you need is a phone and a computer.

They are like presentations at a conference, except there is no travel involved! Complete information on our Webinars is at Jeannie Riseman on past conference talkes on Sensory and Emotional Flashbacks. In "Sensory and Emotional Flashbacks", I'll cover the following topics:. I have found that it helped me immensely to have an intellectual understanding of what was happening as memories surfaced.
Although I had read a lot, psychological and medical terms flew out the window in the middle of a flashback. Simple ideas were easier to remember and helped to keep me grounded. I'm hoping that sharing the framework I developed will make your experiences a little less confusing. Before I read up on flashbacks, I thought they were like living the trauma all over again, in every single detail. Sights, sounds, smells, temperature, and touch all would combine to recreate the original experience in a special kind of hallucination.
Well, mine aren't like the least bit like that. I get little snippets of odd things: a smell of gasoline or perfume when I am swimming; mistaking a car's backfiring for a gunshot; bizarre intrusive thoughts. I never thought much about these things until I learned about dissociation and flashbacks. They were just examples of the stuff that made me peculiar. Now I understand that, during the trauma, I perceived the event in a dissociated state. I stored the memory in unconnected fragments, and when it surfaces, it comes back in fragments. So each little weird snippet is the memory of a small part of something I experienced years ago.
Braun made B stand for behavior, A for affect emotion , S for sensations, and K for knowledge. Each of these modalities can come back separately.
Let's go through them one by one. Behavior, I think, is the hardest to understand as a flashback. We tend to repeat our traumas. If our Dad was distant, we fall for distant guys. If our Mom was alcoholic, we are attracted to alcoholic girls.
But this feels like true love, not a flashback. And yet it is, really, because we are saying, in actions, something about our past. It feels familiar. It's a repetition of the past and is inappropriate in the present. Here are some of my behaviors that I have come to see as flashbacks. I spend a lot of energy trying to please men and I am afraid of making them angry. I put myself down before others can put me down. I am perfectionistic, fearing that awful things will happen if I make a mistake. The list goes on and on. Emotional flashbacks Braun's A for affect are also confusing.

Strong feelings sweep over me and I find myself crying, enraged, or full of fear. My mind searches for a reason for these feelings. Since the reason, the original abuse, is still unconscious, I grab on to something in the present to explain my feelings. It's taken a lot of practice to recognize that I am having a flashback, and that I am not really afraid of this particular mailbox on the corner or this cute little harmless spider.
Sensation flashbacks are much easier for me to recognize. That piece of trash on the road is not a dead body. Loud noises are not gunshots. Feeling cold in ninety-degree weather is a body memory. And so on. Knowledge flashbacks feel really strange. I calmly say things I didn't know I knew, like the comparative cost of different animals my cult sacrificed.

I describe code words that were used to trigger me more than fifty years ago. I just know these things. At the same time they seem improbable and surreal, like bad science fiction. I always have the reaction, " Where did that come from???
This seems like a photograph in my mind, or a short movie. Very occasionally I think the event is happening now and I have to work hard to separate the past from the present. These more complete flashbacks occurred more often shortly after I figured out I was ritually abused. I know everybody is different. I realize that your flashbacks may not like mine at all. I know that some people may find it very helpful to intellectually understand what is going on, while others feel it's sort of beside the point. But I also know that many people have benefited, as I did, from using the BASK model to organize their thoughts about flashbacks.
It can bring a little order into the chaos and can provide a degree of distance from the flashback experience.
It can help you keep one foot in the present, so to speak, and that is very, very helpful. Although animals are abused in many ritual settings, they can be a profound source of healing.

Daniel Hart thinks that writing focussing on survivors' experiences in healing with domestic or wild animals would be positive and inspiring. He has volunteered to start a regular column in the Quarterly on this topic. Prose, poetry, and artwork submissions are all welcome. You can e-mail submissions to him at.
If you don't have e-mail, snail mail them to:. Therapists: please consider filling out a survey on your experience working with clients healing from ritual abuse, mind control, and other forms of extreme child abuse. Within this site you will find information on ritual abuse also called ritualistic abuse or ritual-abuse-torture. I risultati di una ricerca sui fallimenti italiani PDF Online.
