London Event to Help Ex Cult Members April 2012

Postby Justice » Sun Jan 22, 2012 5:37 pm

ICSA (The International Cultic Studies Association) are holding a special event in London in April 2012 which may be of assistance to ex SES members and/or the families and friends of ex and current members. The cost of attending is between £30 - £40.

Founded in 1979, the International Cultic Studies Association (ICSA) is a global network of people concerned about psychological manipulation and abuse in cultic groups, alternative movements, and other environments. ICSA is tax-exempt, supports civil liberties, and is not affiliated with any religious or commercial organizations.
