NY Monthly Meeting: Born or Raised in a Cultic Group

An adult who is drawn into a cultic group has some form of identity in place, however uncertain it may be.  A child born into a cultic environment is invaded, manipulated, violated, without even the memory of being its own self, because the child never had its own identity.

The Friday, March 25, 2016 monthly meeting of ICSA’s New York support group will discuss the impact on children of being born or raised in a cultic group.

This presentation continues a series at ICSA’s New York monthly meetings, including subjects like “Why No One Joins a Cult,” “What Impact Does Cult Involvement Have on a Member’s Family” and “Why People Stay, Why People Leave.”  These presentations have been developed for community educational, civic and religious organizations by ICSA’s New York City Educational Outreach Committee, whose members combine personal and professional experience.

ICSA's monthly meeting in New York is for families, former members, and others seeking support; and people who want to work with others to help victims or educate the public about cult issues.

When: Last Friday of the month, except when noted otherwise: 7 pm – 9 pm. If you are attending for the first time, e-mail ICSA ( to confirm the date of the next meeting.

Where: Church of St. Paul and St. Andrew (United Methodist), 263 W. 86th St., New York City (Subway stop: #1 train at 86th St. and Broadway, walk 1 block west).
