5.0 out of 5 stars Essential, 23 Mar. 2011
This review is from: Cults: A Practical Guide (Paperback)
This is an essential read for anyone who either suspects a loved on is involved with a cult or who wishes to help them leave. The booklet is concise, user frienly and offers excellent advice on how to recognise cults, the differences between cults and religions and approved therapy and the mind control techniques cults use to entice unaware victims. It also provides great guidance on how to support members to leave and provide support in the following years whilst they overcome the impact the cult has had on their life. The most amazing section is a fictional diary that describes how an innocent victim can be drawn in and how in doing so they will be manipulated and their opinions on life, friendships and family will be changed not for their benefit, but for the benefit of the cult leadership.
Overall the booklet is extremely well thought out and I can't recommend it enough. As a previous reviewer describes, most people are unaware that notall cults are religious and encourage members to leave their homes to join. There are equally as many "therapy cults" that draw victims in and use them for their own benefit. It wasn't until I read this that I realised these cults existed and the devastating damage they can do.
