OriginPsychiatric Term

Programming is the process of using trauma-induced dissociation to implant commands and structure a system by an external group. It commonly involves many forms of abuse to trigger dissociative responses allowing access to the subconscious. This leads an abuser (typically more than one) to create headmates with specific roles, signals & triggers, and the internal world. Programmed members may do uncontrollable actions when triggered, usually out of severe fear, or an overwhelming compulsion. There are many kinds of programs. Whether or not the abuser knows that they are causing a system depends on the specific group, as not all abusers know what the exact mechanisms behind their actions are, but explicitly work towards the outcome.
