Visit the ‘BPS Military Psychology Conference 2018’ themed ‘Would I misinform you? The psychological impact of misinformation’


Please attend this conference Thursday 8th November 2018 at The Ark Conference Centre, Basingstoke and tell me afterwards how it was:

I found the theme and setting sufficiently intriguing to submit two abstracts. I enjoy a submission acceptance rate of 80+% so that I was somewhat taken aback today (14th June 2018) to get two rejection notifications.

So what did I put in my Abstracts that did not merit inclusion in the conference program?

Here is the first abstract:


Bluebird & MK Ultra CIA Mind Control Experiments




This paper outlines the research of US Psychiatrist Colin Ross concerning mind control experiments conducted by the CIA.




Congress enquiries lead to the release of historical materials covering clandestine post-war human experimentation by well-known Psychologists and Psychiatrists.




Ross (2000) published ‘Bluebird: Deliberate Creation of Multiple Personalities By Psychiatrists’ and republished the book in 2006 under the title ‘The CIA Doctors – Human Rights Violations By American Psychiatrists’.


It outlines Cold War project BLUEBIRD, ARTICHOCKE, MKUKTRA and MKSEARCH as well as other mind control experimentation programs.


It provides detailed profiles of main actors such as Dr Ewen Cameron, the first president of the American Psychiatric Association and Dr Martin Orne who heavily promoted the False Memories narrative.


The historical accounts are compared to disclosures of survivors of extreme abuse including toddler prostitution and human sacrifice murder.




The 307 page report on the Extreme Abuse Survey (2008, 2016) published on the website ‘’ of US Clinical Psychologist Ellen Lacter quantifies abuse, torture and violence. It is indicative that Mind Control experimentation continues in various guises.


Arguably this is ‘on the money’ – state authority representatives misinforming unsuspecting members of the public with a rather devastating psychological (and unfortunately at times lethal) impact.

How about the Single Case Study that I submitted?


Complex Trauma, Mind Control & Child Smuggling




This paper exposes a chilling ‘Child Smuggling’ case where complex trauma was inflicted in order to exercise mind control.




This single case study outlines the intergenerational abuse background to a series of arson, murder and rape offences. Inadequate Psychology and Psychiatry professionals facilitated the cover up ignoring symptoms of dissociative disorder and inadequately interpreting psychometric tools.




A mother of a toddler reached out for help when her son was sexually assaulted by a family member in ‘unbelievable’ circumstances. Conversations, privately commissioned trauma therapy sessions and location visits uncovered forensic evidence that backs her story.  


Chilling details emerged that help to understand the operation methods of abuse cults. 12 months before the assault a police officer instructed the mother to wait several weeks before making a police report. Three adults in the vicinity of the case were found dead within 6 month of the police briefing. A chilling stalking, defamation and harassment campaign unfolded over the next 6 months – seemingly orchestrated to make the mother appear ‘delusional’ and get mental health professionals to diagnose her as ‘paranoid’. A NHS Psychiatrist made self-incriminating remarks whilst making an unfavourable diagnosis. A Psychologist poorly interpreted WISC and MCMI results.




The blatant child smuggling ploy succeeded in destroying the reputation of the mother and wrestling the child into the control of the abuse group. Efforts to get authority representatives to properly examine matters (including house fire artefact DNA) were ignored so far.


I previously reported (Kurz, 2016) at the 10th International Dyslexia Conference of the BDA in Oxford the Neurodiversity issues that underpin the nefarious child smuggling scheme. Unfortunately many Psych professionals fail to recognise ‘Twice Exceptional’ ability patterns – in this case 3 Psychiatrists and 1 Clinical Psychologist failing miserably in their duty of care. At the ESTD 2017 in Berne I covered Somatoform Dissociations and poor diagnostic practices such as the use of the MCMI in court settings when the questionnaire had been designed for those seeking therapy and does not meet the Daubert standard for validity!

The response from the BPS Conference office I got to the two submissions was:

All submissions have been reviewed through the ‘blind’ BPS review system and unfortunately we were unable to include your submission in the programme this year as unfortunately this submission has not met the Conference standard for due diligence

Apart from the fact that this sentence lacked a full stop (i.e. lack of diligence) I am puzzled what this ‘reason’ is about and enquired accordingly.

So what kind of people seem to have the right kind of ‘due diligence’?

Keynote speaker Professor Karen Douglas is apparently an authority on ‘Conspiracy Theories’ (i.e. mainstream media / academia who perpetuates the original 1960’ies work of the CIA on the topic):



Research interests

My primary research focus is on beliefs in conspiracy theories. Why are conspiracy theories so popular? Who believes them? Why do people believe them? What are some of the consequences of conspiracy theories and can such theories be harmful?

I am also interested in the social psychology of human communication, including how people manipulate subtle features of their language in order to achieve social goals, how they examine other people’s language to learn about them, the psychology of sexist language, and how people formulate and respond to criticism.

Conspiracy theory research database
This is a database of the current academic literature on conspiracy theories, and literature on other closely-related topics. Its production was supported by the Centre for Research and Evidence on Security Threats (ESRC Award: ES/N009614/1). We intend to keep it up to date and re-post it every three months. If you have any updates that you would like to include, or if you notice that any sources are missing, please complete this form. We hope that you find this resource useful.


Another keynote is due to be presented by Professor Becky Milne:


While her efforts appear laudable I have to note that ABE (Achieving Best Evidence) interviews are in my limited volunteer advocacy experiences often conducted shoddily or not at all.

I am alarmed to spot a collaboration with Prof Dan Wright who is associated with the British False Memory Society (BFMS) – an organisation that has frequently been accused of ‘misinformation’:

2010: ESRC follow-on grant (with Prof. Amina Memon, Royal Holloway, and Prof Dan Wright, Florida International University) – Best use of identification parades. (£69638.88)

Furthermore given the info in the inadvertently leaked RAINS list and the odd actions and statements of Simon Bailey at the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) I conclude that we got here another establishment mainstream representative:

Becky was given the 2009 Tom Williamson award for her outstanding achievements in the field of investigative interviewing by ACPO.

In case readers are wondering why I am so critical please have a look through the file that I uploaded below which – in my opinion – points towards an arson-murder that local, regional and national authorities refuse to properly investigate:

Arson Informer Report on Suspected Arson Murder of Godmother (v 11th May 2015)

Four months before the house fire a police officer at Kingston-upon-Thames police station had ‘misinformed’ a mother that she should delay reporting of any sexual assault on her or her toddler for several weeks – ostensibly in order not to jeopardise an undercover police investigation. The godmother of the toddler was found with broken legs (not usually a consequence of fire) in the hallway of the burnt out house ‘on top of roof tiles’ (how could that happen?). A few months after the house fire a stalking campaign ensued that culminated in a sexual assault on the toddler. A NHS Psychiatrist in the southern half of Wales made self-incriminating remarks indicating that he knows that the alleged perpetrator (i.e. the grandfather) is into ‘devil worship’ and that he was instructed by a ‘friend’ in the Senior Civil Service to make a false diagnosis! As a consequence the toddler was removed from his mother and ‘smuggled’ into lucrative long-term foster care (£20k per year per child tax free for the carer and a similar amount for the agency) and ultimately (when the suspected arson was formally raised with the coroner) ‘adoption’ (seemingly by ‘satanist cult’ abusers). What is the psychological impact of misinformation?

I had contacted a potential co-author for submission who had politely declined stating:

‘My thinking was to avoid this psychological warfare industry conference.’

As toddler he had been earmarked to become a High Priest in a Luciferian Cult. One particular training session in the north of England in the late 1960’s was specifically arranged for him to witness a group of soldiers in uniforms kicking a teenager to death. This kind of training is designed to traumatise the observer and create dissociations – split personality parts that render the subject more malleable for nefarious purposes.

Dr Colin Ross is one of the few Psych professionals who is prepared to inform the public about shenanigans involving fellow Psych professionals. Perhaps the conference organisers are worried – for all the wrong reasons – about ‘The psychological impact of inconvenient information’?
