CE credits are available for mental health professionals – see information below.

This conference is offered in conjunction with the publishing of the ICSA book, Cult Recovery: A Clinician’s Guide to Working with Former Members and Families

The book and conference will provide mental health professionals with an understanding of the world of former cult members, cult leaders, and the cult environment. These dynamics also are applicable to those who become involved in any high-demand situation, such as gangs, terrorist organizations, and cases of Parental Alienation Syndrome.

The presenters (Steve Eichel, William Goldberg, Lorna Goldberg, Shelly Rosen, and Daniel Shaw) are chapter authors who will provide participants with a road map for understanding the environment of coercive control and for learning how this population can be helped to gain insight into themselves and their experience. Participants will be offered therapeutic approaches for those who have been harmed.

The Institute for Psychoanalytic Studies is an NBCC Approved Continuing Education Provider, ACEP No. 6334. The ACEP solely is responsible for this program, including the awarding of NBCC credit.
