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 and access the subconscious, leading an abuser to create alters with specific roles, signals & triggers, and the internal world. 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 DID & OSDD are, but understand the outcome.
