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,
Felicity Lee

Buying my plane tickets in a few weeks! So excited!

Post by Morgan on 2/13/2017, 12:21 pm

I'm so excited. I've planned out my money for the conference. I'll be buying my plane tickets and putting away my spending money as well as paying my entrance fee as soon as my income tax refund hits my checking account! I'll be putting away money for spending too and buying the clothing I'll need. So exiting! I'm going to make it this year by god!

I can't wait to see you there again. This conference will be better than ever. We are planning and getting the speakers lined up. I just put in some 20 sponsors and still adding more. The speakers this year are amazing - Sandra Paulsen, Colin Ross, Steven Frankel, David Calof, Laura Brown, Jerry Criimmins, Lynn Crook, Staci Sprout, Tom Cloyd, Kate White (she does the music for all of our videos now), Joshua Moore, Jerome Elam, Cynthia Wilson (Art therapist - wonderful), and of course, Boyy (on service dogs).

The speakers are 'mostly' survivors - many with DID - but, also professional speakers talking about human trafficking, DID, spiritual healing experiences, trauma and addiction.

I can't wait to see everyone. Kate will be performing in the evening and, also speaking about her recovery from DID. We will have an 'open' art room throughout the conference - with a few speakers coming in - and, an 'open' classroom area where people can sign up to give small presentations - as they want to.

For anyone thinking about attending, take a look at the webiste - which I am still updating - at www.igdid.org As time goes by, we will have scholarships available. We will also get you all a price (for members here and your guests). There will be folks who will be looking for roommates and ride shares.

Last year, we had 90 some survivors with DID, and about 100 professional clinicians and such - I know that many made friends and actually found therapists there. This year, it does look like we will have more attendees - about the same - 1/2 survivors and 1/2 clinicians. I was so excited to see so many IGDID members there, though many have not been on the forum for awhile.

And, I loved that the venue was smaller - we took over the entire hotel and all of the conference rooms. We went swimming in the indoor pool, and snuck away to eat at Denny's for cheap breakfast -

This is our fourth year - wow - I can hardly believe it. I remember the day that everyone decided that we should have conference - yeah right.... And, we pulled it off!!! You came that year!!

Sooooo exciting this year - again - we look forward to seeing everyone there - and, knowing that this is 'our' conference -
