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.
