Cults: How Mind Control Enslaves, and How to Help People Break Free
To understand what is a cult and to explain its impact, educator and therapist Rachel Bernstein will bring her experience and skills to this lecture following her workshop at the Center on Oct. 15-16. She also will discuss mind control, its undue influence, and the techniques of persuasion that are used almost always in cults and controlling relationships. In addition, Bernstein will explore effects of cult involvement and psychological manipulation. Anyone who has been in a cult will learn how to undo the effects of mind control, and those who know someone in a cult who has probably been told to cut themselves off from them will find out how to successfully and safely reconnect with them.
As a licensed therapist, Bernstein has been working with former cult members and their families for 25 years. She has been the clinician at the Cult Clinic in Los Angeles and at the Cult Hotline and Clinic in Manhattan. She has run numerous support groups for former cult members and their families and has spoken at many conferences worldwide. Bernstein has appeared on TV on CNN, National Geographic, E Entertainment, and Larry King on numerous occasions. She now works with a variety of clients, including those who have been involved in cults, in her private practice in Encino and runs a former cult member support group online and in her office.
NOTE: A different speaker will be announced for Costa Mesa.
