Manipulation, Abuse, and Maltreatment in Groups

Postby Justice » Wed Nov 14, 2012 1:34 pm

The International Cultic Studies Association (ICSA) is conducting its 2013 Annual International Conference jointly with SOS Abusi Psicologici, Exit S.C.S. Onlus, and Info-Secte/Info-Cult.

The conference will be held in Trieste, Italy from Thursday, July 4, 2013, through Saturday, July 6, 2013.

Attendees and speakers at past conferences have been diverse, including academicians, researchers, helping professionals, former and current group members, families, attorneys, clergy, educators, and others.

Some sessions will cover a wide variety of topics relevant to manipulation, abuse, and maltreatment in groups, including some themes that will have practical benefits for families and/or former members of groups.

Information on sessions and speaker biographical sketches will be posted on the Web, as will details about planned preconference events on Wednesday, July 3rd.

ICSA annual conferences typically have from 80 to 120 speakers, so there will be much to choose from.

Is This Forum invited, Justice? Do we have a representative to attend, finances permitting?
The internationals maybe need to recognise the likes of this Forum, who could add plenty to the debate.

Hi woodgreen,

All are welcome to attend so far as I am aware.

As to the matter of speaking at the conference, that is something you would need to discuss with ICSA.

Best wishes,

Justice

Thanks Justice, I am actually thinking about how we might represent this Forum.

It is one of the few voices that dares to speak openly..
