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

The conference will focus on clinicians, child abuse survivors, and loved ones working together in order to share knowledge that will empower, enlighten, and benefit each uniquely. Our goal is that trauma survivors will leave the conference with the tools and knowledge that can be used in everyday life; that supporters acquire a better understanding of trauma and dissociation and its effects on survivors; that clinicians gain skills that will be useful when treating dissociative clients.
The conference will be held in Seattle, WA at the DoubleTree by Hilton near Sea-Tac Airport. Please go to the "Hotel and Lodging" tab for more information on rooms and accommodations.
