    Greetingsand ImHotep All...


    "The methods that enable one human being to enslave another are remarkably consistent....The systematic use of coercive techniques to break women into prostitution is know as "seasoning". Even in domestic situations, where the batterer is not part of any larger organization and has had no formal instruction in these techniques, he seems time and again to reinvent them.... The methods of establishing control over another person are based upon the systematic, repetitive infliction of psychological trauma. They are the orgainzed techniques of disempowerment and disconnection. Methods of psychological control are designed to instill terror and helplessness and to destroy the victim's sense of self in relation to others...violence is a universal method of terror....Fear is also increased by inconsistent and unpredictable outbursts of violence...
    ...The goal of the perpetrator is to instill in his victim not only fear of death but also grattude for being allowed to live..."(Herman, Trauma and Recovery: The aftermath of violence-from domestic abuse to political terror, 1994 pg. 76-77)

    Are there areas or experiences in YOUR life where you sense these "tactics" was being used upon you? If so, who was the "perpetrator" and in what ways were you terrorized?
