As thick as thieves, or the ritual abuse family ± an attachment perspective on a forensic relationship


In this chapter, I would like to look at Ritual Abuse (RA)-produced dissociative identity disorder (DID) in the context of family life, rather than the context of an individual predicament or a societal problem. And that is because, in my view, the family aspect of RA-produced DID is one of the most powerful elements in creating it, maintaining it and, potentially, in healing from it.
