    Meine Befürchtung ist nicht, dass hier Täter verharmlost werden, sondern Opfer nun noch größere Hemmschwelle überwinden müssen um in Therapie zu gehen. Ich bin selbst Psychologin und arbeite auf einer Station mit Traumafolgestörungen, ich würde mir sehr wünschen dass die Art der hier berichteten Therapie eingeordnet wird. Welche Art der Therapie, welche Ausbildung hatte die “Therapeutin”?

    My fear is not that perpetrators are trivialized here, but that victims now have to overcome even greater inhibitions in order to go to therapy. I am a psychologist myself and work on a ward with trauma sequelae, I would very much like the type of therapy reported here to be classified. What kind of therapy, what training did the “therapist” have?

    That the perpetrator is here trivialized is not my concern, rather the fact that the victim has to go into therapy in order to overcome a huge physiological barrier.I as a psychologist myself, working at a unit for post-traumatic disorders, would very much like it if the type of therapy reported here was classified. Which type of therapy, what type of training did the therapist receive ?

Ich finde es sehr schwierig, dass hier rituelle Gewalt und Scheinerinnerungen in einem Atemzug genannt werden. Generell ist diese Reportage in meinen Augen sehr sehr einseitig geworden. Ich finde es okay, wenn man über individuelle Fälle spricht, in denen es zu Scheinerinnerungen durch die Methoden der Psychotherapeutin kam, ABER in meinen Augen hätte man folgende Dinge von Anfang an klarstellen müssen:
– Rituelle Gewalt EXISTIERT.
– Die dissoziative Identitätsstörung EXISTIERT.
– Scheinerinnerungen können zwar auch vorkommen, es handelt sich aber eher um Einzelfälle.

Die Aussage, dass “Traumata normalerweise nicht vergessen werden”, muss man auch korrigieren. Nein, Traumata werden nicht “vergessen”, ABER es ist sehr häufig der Fall, dass Traumata verdrängt und stark abgespalten (“dissoziiert”) werden. Das ist ein sehr häufiges Symptom. So kommt es sehr oft zu Erinnerungslücken bishin zu kompletten dissoziativen Amnesien.

Es wäre angebracht, wenn auch eine Reportage zu den Opfern und Folgen von ritueller Gewalt käme – die sind nämlich in der Reportage nicht aufgetaucht.

Vocabulary List

Atemzug, one breath

Erinnerungslücken,  memory gaps, memory impairment, memory loss

    I find it very difficult that ritual violence and illusory memories are mentioned here in the same breath. In general, this report has become very very one-sided in my eyes. I think it is okay to talk about individual cases in which there were false memories through the methods of the psychotherapist, BUT in my eyes the following things should have been made clear from the beginning:
    – Ritual violence EXISTS.
    – Dissociative identity disorder EXISTS.
    – Bogus memories may also occur, but they tend to be isolated cases.

    The statement that “trauma is not usually forgotten” must also be corrected. No, traumas are not “forgotten”, BUT it is very often the case that traumas are repressed and strongly split off (“dissociated”). This is a very common symptom. So it comes very often to memory gaps up to complete dissociative amnesias.

    It would be appropriate if there were also a report on the victims and consequences of ritual violence – they did not appear in the report.

My Translation

[+265] [-~]

I find it difficult, that ritual violence and false memories were mention at one breath. Overall, I find this report personally to be very one-sided.  I find it okay, when one speaks about individual cases, where false memories arose from methods of  the psychotherapist. However, in my eyes, these following things could have been addressed from the beginning:

-Ceremonial violence exists

-Dissociative identity disorders exists

-False memories can also appear, however in individual cases.

The statement that “Trauma are normally not forgotten” should be rectified. No, Trauma are not forgotten but it is often the case that trauma becomes repressed and strongly dissociated.  This is  very frequently the symptom. Therefore it often leads to memory loss and to complete dissociative amnesia.

It would have been appropriate, if a report on victims and the consequences of ceremonial violence also drops. Because these did not appear in this report.
