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

Also, learn from survivors who will be presenting workshops, memoirs, and personal experiences.
We look forward to seeing everyone in Seattle: October 7th, 2016 for another amazing event.

1. Describe the components of trauma-informed care, and how they differ from standard care.

We have held a block of rooms at the price of $119.00 per night (for both single and double rooms) from October 6th-10th, and the hotel will honor the price 3 days before and three days after those dates. If you are even considering attending, you should call the hotel and let them know that you are with the “Seattle Trauma Conference” group and book rooms – as many as think you ‘may’ need. You may book rooms now and if you need to, cancel them without penalty up to 24 hours before – check on that with the hotel.
This hotel has a total of about 200 rooms and book about 90% capacity everyday. This is very important to you as our guests. We are excited that we were able to provide for attendees such a warm and friendly venue – much smaller than previous years, but we would also like to see everyone together at the hotel. Our group is not limited to rooms, but the hotel will most likely ‘run out of rooms’ if you don’t book yours’ soon. It would be fun to ‘take over’ the hotel that weekend.
