Ritual-Abuse Mind-Control Organized Abuse Special Interest Group


The Ritual Abuse Mind Control Organized AbuseSpecial Interest Group (RAMCOA SIG) of the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation (ISSTD) was approved by ISSTD’s Executive Council in 2008. The Mission of the RAMCOA SIG is to further dialogue, knowledge, research, and training on the etiology, evaluation, and effective treatment of trauma and dissociation in clients reporting histories of ritual abuse or mind control.
