I shared this in a response on Impacts topic thread. Which if you read in detail the many posts. You will discover that Impact and Klemmer are basically twin Large Group Awareness Training in how they function, and operate with particpants using many of the same methods also.
Here is link to topic thread, and copy of my post.

I did a search online and this is the only place I could find that posted the truth about Impact. Thank You!!!
I feel terrible. I participated in Impact for several years at all levels and then realized it wasnt what it appeared to be.
I have led many others down this path.
My life is mostly great but I know others have been harmed by my angeling and staffing. Does anyone here know how I begin to talk to them and show them the truth?
I also need deprogamming in many areas. Any success stories on how I can do that too?
What has worked for me is a total denouncing of Klemmer & Associates philosophy in my life. Since this is Impacts thread, then you will need to renounce Impacts philosophy if you follow my suit in this.
Then I began a very in depth look within myself with full critical thinking turned on in this introspective look.
I had to get very honest with myself here. I had to look at what attracted me to Klemmers philosophy in the first place. I had to face the vacuum within certian psychological realms within myself that wanted the quik fix, and short cut to being happy and at peace with myself in many area's of my life.
I had to confront the narcissism, hedonism, and humanisn that exists in us all at various levels. I had to face the aspect of seeing how I am drawn to these aspects without even realizing it.
I had to face the emotional inmaturity that is within myself, and that needs to grow up to be interdependant in our society. Not codependant, nor independent as I tend to lean depending on situation.
I had to confront that I like being selfish, and self absorbed in my life.
Basically, I had to cut loose of all pretense in this introspective look at myself and what drew me to buy into an LGAT philosophy that Klemmer & Associates and Impact are operating in carbon copies of each other.
Basically, I had to let critical thinking be turned on and focused at the source of this problem.
Myself, and what was in me that drew me as a bug to a light.
I hope this helps you.
