UK Recovery Workshop
· Did you grow up in a strict religion?
· Did you spend all or part of your childhood in a cult?
· Did you spend all or part of your childhood in an extremist authoritarian sect?
· Did you spend all or part of your childhood in a new religious movement?
· Did you spend all or part of your childhood in a new religion?
If you think that you might answer yes to any of the above questions then you may be interested in attending a workshop specifically designed for born/raised former members of extremist authoritarian sects, which are sometimes known as cults, sects, new religious movements or new religions. Alternatively your group may have been a non-religious group; perhaps it was a therapeutic, or political group.
