Our Goal

OUR GOAL

To provide a unique environment where folks who have experienced trauma can openly and safely talk. We strive to respect, validate, and learn from each other.

ACHIEVING OUR GOAL

Achieving our goal requires cooperative collaboration amongst members and staff. Members posts remain appropriate and relevant to topics. Terms of Service are clearly posted to help members maintain the dignity of the board. Members of this group are at a stage in their healing to independently regulate their own behavior, as well as keeping themselves safe while on the forums. Staff regularly monitor posts and replies to ensure the board remains a safe and comfortable environment of learning for everyone.

As a friendly and kind community, we validate each other as equally special and significant.

These forums are active and the community not too large or too small - about 400 post per day. There are many forums on different topics. The topics range in subject matter also. You are welcome to interact as you feel comfortable.

This is a safe place for members. We encourage building coping skills, learning from each other and material shared. We discourage sharing explicit memories of past abuse. We feel that processing memories be done with professionals. There are no practicing therapists on these forums. Therefore, topics that call for therapist type responses are discouraged.

Feel free to look around. Realize that, as a guest, your view of the forums is minimal. These forums are otherwise private to the public view and/or search engines.

We have literally hundreds of articles and provide workshops for everyone. Please feel free to email me anytime with questions. I am also providing a tutorial that should help with navigating our site.

The very best to you,

DID interview with Therapist Ellie Fields -

This is a great interview with David and Ellie Fields - about DID.  You'll like it.  I listened to the whole thing and found it very informative.

Thanks for the interview, I am anxious to hear the rest of the series. I am a therapist and also work closely with some clients in their homes and in the community. I want to know more about how the EMDR "punched holes in the dissociative's walls". You got off that track and I want to know if EMDR is helpful or dangerous for DID clients. Thanks again.

Yes, I believe that we will be getting into that in the near future.

I just got to talking about that in t the other day - oddly. Evidently, doing EMDR with highly dissociated clients can cause too many memories to flood - and, the dissociated 'walls' cannot be 'put back up' once they are knocked down. So, that type of flooding can destabilize someone with DID.

I am not a therapist, but that's how it was explained to me. Well, I looked for some research on this, but didn't find any quickly - I will look further - and, will post when the next interview is. Okay?

Thanks I appreciate that. We had one client that tried EMDR and might have been more dissociative than they knew or admitted and it did flood her. Thankfully she survived and is doing better now. She had to discontinue therapy, and basically try to recreate some of those walls. So it is very important that we get as much history and background as possible before applying this very useful technique.

I totally agree. I can't do it because I have epilepsy and it triggers seizures - so that too.

EMDR was how I discovered I had DID. I was flooded and dissociated. Looking forward to more information, since we have started using it again.

I'd be curious to know how EMDR is used for DID and if it helps. I am going to get trained in it this fall and one of my clients wants to try it as soon as she is stable enough.

I will see if I can get another trained therapist to interview or help with some answers. I will find out tomorrow. That would be cool.
