The background of Satanism and typical Satanic activities are described. It is noted that contemporary Satanism has three forms: solitary Satanists, outlaw cults, and neo-Satanic churches. Included in a description of Satanic activities are Heavy Metal music and fantasy games, both of which are intensely interesting to teenagers. The next section profiles the personality of a teenager who might succumb to cult overtures, as well as environmental factors which enhance the appeal of cultism. The personality profile includes teenagers' identity search; loners who are disconnected from family; teenagers without cultural, religious, or community values; and powerlessness. Methods for recruiting teenagers into Satanism are discussed and it is noted that groups of followers are solidified by intimidation, guilt, and fear. Finally, a scenario for program planning and rehabilitation is presented. It is claimed one of the blocks to intervention is the disbelief of the general public. However, it is noted that denial of Satanism is inappropriate for people who work with vulnerable teenagers. It is recommended that clients are stripped of all environmental symbols and are involved in group therapy. Family and community involvement, prevention programs by school counselors, and school-based mental health counselors are recommended.

At present the most common area for discussion about satanic cults is the reality of their existence; opinions vary from total acceptance to total disbelief. This chapter presents overview of the issues involved in this debate, a useful typology of the positions taken by experts in the fields, and a helpful integration of these seemingly divergent perspectives. Topics include: conceptual confusion in SCS (satanic cult survivor) reports; SCS productions as clinical data; the principle heuristic hypotheses; the nihilistic hypotheses; the apologist hypotheses.

SUMMARY: (from the preface) When you want to know about violent crime, why not go to the violent offenders? I talked and corresponded with violent personal offenders, rapists, and murderers. I asked them questions about their crimes, motivations, and crime scenes. I combined the knowledge I gained from those in prison and on death row with theoretical knowledge and my practical experience. This book is a product of that endeavor and provides the basic elements of profiling. It is not a cook book. In other words, it will not turn anyone into a profiler. What it will do is acquaint readers with the general principles of profiling, as well as what is needed to develop a sociopsychological profile. I believe that experience, a thorough knowledge of the social and behavioral sciences (as well as criminology), and a knowledge of police investigative techniques will serve as a firm base for profiling.

Forensic evaluation assesses the functioning and clinical mental health needs of children by seeking to understand their experiences, but also tries specifically to generate evidence that may be used in legal actions The variation in clinical presentation and legal issues involved in cases of suspected or known ritualized maltreatment prevent reliance upon a single protocol or "recipe" for forensic evaluation.

SUMMARY: (from the jacket)
This book is a comprehensive guide to all aspects of the cult experience. It draws on the clinical expertise of treatment professionals and the personal experiences of those formerly involved in high-intensity mind-control groups. The book examines the history of the cult phenomenon, the nature of mind control, the psychological literature on post-cult distress, why people leave cults, exit counseling and deprogramming, and how to facilitate recovery. (It) makes a strong case for the extreme damage that cults can do to members physically, as well as psychologically and spiritually. There are specific guidelines for different types of counseling: psychotherapy, pastoral counseling, psychiatric hospitalization, and suggestions for support groups, families and ex-members themselves.

There is a lack of literature in the area of psychological testing of cult abuse victims. The purpose of this chapter is to begin to fill this gap and to address some of the issues involved in conceptualizing and undertaking psychological testing with victims of satanic cult abuse. Given that satanic cult abuse involves extensive psychological trauma leading to a variety of dissociative disorders---including MPD (multiple personality disorder), the small but growing body of literature relating to psychological test results of MPD and other dissociated states is relevant. This set of writings, as well as several other articles of significance, which is reviewed.

TABLE OF CONTENTS:
The problem -- Personality types of adolescents involved in Satanism -- The psychopathic delinquent -- The angry misfit -- The pseudo-intellectual -- The suicidal impulsive -- Risk factors associated with Satanism -- Cultural factors -- Physical factors -- Psychological factors -- Social factors -- The Satanic Bible -- Satanism as a source of power -- The Satan-God duality -- Rites of passage -- Parent styles: The beginning -- Communicating effectively -- Satanism and suicide
This book addresses the problems of adolescent Satanism from a psychological viewpoint. It includes the developmental dynamics that underlie four different types of young people who become involved in Satanism and provides an analysis of risk factors. The author critically evaluates the philosophy of Satanism through a review of The Satanic Bible, and further appraises the causes of Satanism by examining the roles of power, ritual, and dualistic thinking in young people's lives. In addition, Moriarty evaluates how communication patterns and parenting styles impact on a young person's vulnerability to become involved in Satanism. This is also the first book to describe the relationship between Satanism and suicide. Finally, it closes with ten practical suggestions for parents and others that will lead to effective prevention. This volume is intended for a wide audience, including parents, teachers, clergy, counselors, and other mental health professionals, and is a valuable resource for law enforcement personnel.

Through case histories, persuasive arguments and extensive documentation, (the authors) attack what they see as a devastating trend in psychotherapy, where therapists--under the guise of helping their patients--lead them to erroneously believe they have unlocked long-buried memories of events about which they have lost all knowledge. The problem, say the authors, is that memories retrieved, using the techniques of this therapy, are false: the events never took place. Yet time and again, over-zeal ous therapists have induced vulnerable patients to believe they have been victims of years-long brutalization and sexual abuse, often by members of their own families, and/or suffer from multiple personality disorders.
(from the preface) (The authors') goal is to prove beyond doubt that devastating mistakes are being made within certain therapy settings. By relying on the published works of recovered memory clinicians for the bulk of (the) evidence, (they) intend to sho w that these mistakes are not being made by aberrant clinicians but by a substantial group of therapists who have created a movement replete with scholarly and how-to books, conferences for clinicians, journals, newsletters, and a raft of prominent expert s. This work is intended as an expose of a pseudoscientific enterprise that is damaging the lives of people in need.

Misinformation from therapists or books can provide a powerful formula for changing a person's entire belief system. That is what Victims of Memory is about--how perfectly normal people... could come to believe in such horrible delusions (such as being victims of incest), and how responsible therapists and critics can bring an end to this madness. As an investigative journalist and scholar, (the author) has delved into the complicated social, cultural, and individual factors that lie behind the accusations. Victims of Memory explores a seemingly inexplicable phenomenon, one that will engage psychologists, sociologists, anthropologists and other s cholars.

TABLE OF CONTENTS:
The history of satanic religions -- Satanic beliefs and practices -- Alternative hypotheses regarding claims of satanic cult activity: A critical analysis -- Child forensic evaluation and claims of ritual abuse or satanic activity: A critical analysis -- A law-enforcement perspective on allegations of ritual abuse -- Psychological testing and ritual abuse -- Ritual abuse: The experiences of five families -- Constructivist self-development theory: A theoretical model of psychological adaptation to severe trauma -- Diagnosis and treatment of ritually abused children -- Recognition and treatment of survivors reporting ritual abuse -- Bound by the boundaries: Therapy issues in work with individuals exposed to severe trauma
In Out of Darkness, editors David Sakheim and Susan Devine graph the intersection of satanic cult activity, a phenomenon cloaked in unreality, and the very real and immediate tragedy of child abuse, often an attendant evil of ritual wo rship. Culling information from forensic experts, law enforcement officials, clergy, and psychotherapists and counselors, Sakheim and Devine provide a comprehensive overview of the relationship between these two realms, including: a history of satanic religions; a forensic guide to dealing with claims of ritual abuse; a theoretical model of psychological adaptation to severe trauma (and) diagnosis and treatment of ritually abused children. Out of Darkness is one of the first books to acknowledge the surprising pervasiveness of ritual activity, and skillfully reveal the links between it and incidences of physical and psychological child abuse.
