Cult Recovery: A Clinician’s Guide to Working With Former Members and Families

 Cult Recovery: A Clinician’s Guide to Working With Former Members and Families
Editors: Lorna Goldberg, William Goldberg, Rosanne Henry, Michael Langone

“Decades of valuable and useful research and treatment experience are contained in these essays. Nothing comparable exists in current mental health literature. It will be the standard reference for treating cult victims for years to come.”
—Stephen Kent, PhD, University of Alberta

“Never before has there been so instructive a collection of information on cult-relevant treatment issues. This book should be in easy reach on the shelf of any clinician who provides such treatment.” —Robert Cialdini, PhD, Author of Influence and Pre-Suasion

“I have been looking forward to this book becoming a reality. At last, a comprehensive guide to recommend to students and professionals wishing to learn more about how to help those affected by abusive groups. Through the contributions of leading experts dedicated over the years to helping those harmed by a cult experience, the editors have done an outstanding job of bringing together accumulated knowledge and new insights on cult recovery. A must-read for students and mental health professionals interested in setting a high bar for further work with those who suffer.” —Carmen Almendros, PhD, Associate Professor in Clinical and Health Psychology, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Spain

This landmark 500-page book, with chapters from leading clinicians and researchers, describes the current state of the art in helping people adversely affected by a cultic dynamic, whether in a cult, mainstream religious denomination, psychotherapy, family, or other interpersonal relationship.
People are different, and different people will respond to the same environment in different ways. That is why the first clinical rule in working with former cult members and families is to remain flexible and not rigidly adhere to a clinical ideology. The chapters in this book reflect this attitude of openness, while describing how different experts approach the kinds of problems that might confront therapists working with former cult members and those with affected loved ones.

Though primarily aimed at helpers, the clearly written chapters of this 500-page book can help family members and former members of cultic situations, including those born or raised in such environments.
