* A survivor who has worked with other survivors over 10 years outlines the progression of healing, offering hers and others' experiences that the pain does end.

* A licensed therapist will share her experiences working for years as a mental health professional to discover she is both DID and a ritualistic abuse survivor, and how she translated her training and healing to help other survivors.
