Welcome to IGDID


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 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 posts 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,
Felicity Lee

This quote so sums it up for us. The argument between the truth of child abuse and those who publicize lies for their own benefit. I love it.

“The argument between the field of child sexual abuse and the backlash against survivors is not an academic debate between two well- meaning groups equally invested in ascertaining truth. It is not an academic debate at all; it is a political fight. It is a political fight between a group of well-financed people whose freedom, livelihood, finances, reputation, or liberty is being threatened by disclosures of child sexual abuse and —on the other hand—a group of well-meaning, ill-organized underfinanced, and often terribly naïve academics who expect fair play . . . Those of us who practice in this field must face the implications of the fact that we are dealing with sexual abuse. Child sex offenders—people who exploit children’s bodies and betray their trust—are not going to hesitate to lie outright.”
- Anna Salter, Confessions of a Whistle-Blower: Lessons Learned, 1998
