April 26, 1991 report:
(NOTE: This update follows report dated November 26, 1990)
Over the past few months, writer has continued involvement with each of the Ross children on a weekly basis. Contact also includes ongoing consultation with the Thompsons, Department of Social Services, school personnel and Constable Dueck as required.
The Ross children have continued to disclose experiences consistent to other children that have been ritually abused. While the meories appear to be triggered by a variety of situations/objects and regular holiday celebrations, predictability regarding further disclosures remains difficult. This creates ongoing instability for these children, as well as places a great deal of stress on the family with whom they reside. However, they do experience periods of stability, which seem tohave increased in frequency over the past few months.
These children continue to present dysfunctional behaviors consistent with others having experienced severe trauma. They require both a high level of supervision and ongoing therapeutic intervention to best meet their needs. While regression is frequently apparent, its connection to overall progress must be considered. It appears that these children currently feel the necessary safety and trust required to "act out" behaviors as a means of making sense of past trauma and to attempt mastery in areas of delayed development. With that in mind, the following is presented for the purpose of update.
