Abstract

This study has examined in detail the experiences of an individual who was ritually abused as a young person. Two other people, who had been ritually abused, were also interviewed in order to serve as a means of triangulation of the first person's experiences. A limited amount of data obtained by another researcher was used to add to the information provided by one of the secondary participants. The data was analyzed using a modified grounded theory procedure. This analysis combined with a comparison of information in the literature served as a basis for the development of theory. Theory was generated regarding the process of healing for people who have been ritually abused. A model of conceptualizing the healing process was also developed.
