Books promoting belief in SRA:

The following items support belief in the widespread nature of SRA. Many are promoted as documentaries but appear to be works of fiction. Some are immensely popular. Some have been investigated by independent researchers; all that were studied have been shown to be hoaxes:

Internet resources promoting belief in SRA:

There are many self-help, conservative Christian, information, and other organizations that believe in the widespread nature of Satanic Ritual Abuse. These web sites are gradually disappearing from the Internet. In mid-2004, we listed ten web sites here; at the start of 2007, this had shrunk to six.

bullet "Information and resources for survivors, therapists and others" at: They have an extensive list of ritual abuse related links at:
bullet psnews is a ritual abuse "pro-survivor" news list at Yahoo!. See:
bullet "Ritual Abuse Free - Through Jesus Christ" is a conservative Christian web site at:
bullet Karen Jones, Satanism and Ritual Abuse Archive is a brief description of ritual abuse events reported in the media between and 1979-SEP to 2000-SEP. See:
bullet Sunshine Through the Rain has RA/SRA information, self-help techniques, a chat room etc. See:
bullet Survivorship, a web site "for survivors of ritualistic abuse, mind control, and torture, and their allies," is at:

Books that take an intermediate view:

bullet G.B. Palermo & M.C. Del Re, "Satanism: Psychiatric and legal Views," Thomas (1999). Read reviews or order this book safely from online book store
bullet D.K. Sakheim & S.E. Devine, "Out of Darkness: Exploring Satanism & Ritual Abuse," Lexington Books, (1992). This book is out of print, but can often be purchased used. This is a book which was quite influential during the early 1990's. It was written when belief in SRA was near its peak. Yet it includes some material that is skeptical of SRA. A fascinating historical document.
