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,

Show your Support for Trauma-Survivors

Show your Support for Abuse Survivors - Anchorage Conference:


Trauma survivors - including Human Trafficking survivors - need your support now!!


Ivory Garden will be hosting the 6th annual Trauma and Dissociation Conference in Anchorage Alaska - May 4th and 5th, 2018.  Seats are still available, and a sliding-scale has been added.  The focus is on human trafficking/trauma and how it affects survivors.  Everyone interested in trauma and trauma-informed care is invited.

Last year this conference was held in Seattle.  It sold out - attendees included survivors and supporters from around the world and from all walks of life.  One topic that came up was Backpage.com, what was happening in Seattle and around the world, and what we all could do to stop trafficking.  The question on everyone's mind, "What resources are available for survivors?"  

Recently, the U.S. seized Backpage.com for allegedly providing minors for prostitution and sex trafficking https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/07/us/politics/backpage-prostitution-classified.html


Obviously, many folks were working together to take down Backpage.com.  And, now we must pull together to ensure that survivors of trauma have the resources they need.  

So, let's ask the question, "With Backpage.com seized, what happens to the survivors?"  I am based in Seattle, and I know that this a huge business here.  Our conference is in Anchorage this year, and trafficking is big business there also.  

It is up to all of us to provide support for survivors of trauma - including human trafficking survivors.  Right?  They not only need food and housing, but also trained therapists, resources, peer support, and mostly to know that they are important and respected within the community so that they can move forward.  All survivors deserve support and validation.  

Ivory Garden provides these conferences in order to bring comradery, education, and awareness for the purpose of supporting survivors of trauma and supporters.  Before Backpage.com was seized, we had already decided to cover this at our conference.

We will be screening "I am Jane Doe" https://www.iamjanedoefilm.com/ as well as having follow-up discussion with Jerome Elam and Erik L. Bauer, the Seattle attorney who has been influential - http://komonews.com/news/local/high-court-rules-against-backpagecom-in-sex-trafficking-suit

Let's all come together and let survivors and supporters know that there is support and solidarity among peers and communities for those who are survivors of trauma and abuse.   

Please go to www.igdid.org where you can take a look at the speakers, agenda, venue, and registration.  Support the conference by registering now and/or donate to support others coming who would not otherwise be able to attend.

We thank the donors, volunteers, speakers, hotel, and everyone who has so graciously donated toward making this event a reality.
