Dear Hope, give yourself sufficient time to acquire a vocabulary that will do justice to what you went through and to get a focus on the exact process of what you went through. Recovery from spiritual exploitation is complex because it is in stages. What is therapeutic in early recovery is often not useful in later recovery. Attitudes essential to advanced recovery can hinder early recovery

However, please be warned, it is expensive (I paid about $40 for it 4 years ago)--anything printed by a small academic/medical publishing house will be expensive. It was written by a psychiatrist for mental health professionals, so feel free to take notes and run things by your therapist. In fact, you might offer to loan the book to your therapist at some point--he or she might be grateful! ( I l

(Epstein continues 'For example, a therapist who has been successfully treating a patient with psychodynamic psychotherapy begins to advise hypnosis using touch as part of the trance induction to help the patient 'relax', suggests sessions be conducted out side of the office..the new treatment might be appropriate when applied as part of a coherant treatment modality, but a sudden

This is important. I may have to post two messages to give you the full text of my reply. Will quote from one of the books I recommended. Robert S Epstein, the psychiatrist who is author of 'Keeping Boundaries : Maintaining Safety and Integrity in the Psychotherapeutic Process' (ISBN-0-88048-660-0) 1994, says this on page 97: ''Petersen(1992) viewed every boundary violation

Dear Hope, your story would be valuable, precisely because you illustrate the problems that arise when a health care provider elicits trust, then uses the provider patient relationship as a 'point of recruitment' to serve a covert agenda that is NOT in the patient's best interests. The problem is when a provider has bought into a cult or cultic relationship and does sincerely b

This URL was posted on craigslist.org, a bulletin board I use quite often. It is a prospectus for a workshop on powerful hypnotic techiques, including Neuro-Linguistic Programming. It is offered by a group called 'Somnambulistic Sleepwalkers' () They emphasize the personal power/ego-driven benefits one can expect to get by mastering the technicques. No reminder that hypnosis is

Dear Hope, it is appalling that you were referred to LF by a psychotherapist. The whole point of being a psychotherapist is to function as a professional on behalf of the client's best interests. The therapist should never, ever have a hidden agenda of recruiting/evangelizing for a belief system that has never been approved for use in psychotherapy. There is a remarkable article on Rick

You did Landmark, and 'been there', so your report is especially valuable. You dont have to reply if you dont wish, but--how long did it take for you to recover from the adverse effects of participating in Landmark? Was anything you did or your therapist did especially helpful in aiding your recovery?

If this is true, it could create a spiritual and legal quagmire/nightmare. First, various reports in the RR.com database indicate that LGATs such as Landmark Forum can high-pressure, indoctrination experiences. Many former participants report theyve found such experiences unpleasant. Some participants have had stress reactions and have needed psychotherapy to cope with this. Not enough LG

There are some common 'red flags' that indicate whether a group has an exploitative agenda; 1) Frequent name changes 2) Mixing techniques and methods from totally different traditions--using yoga and the Oriental Orthodox Church is an example of this. NOTE: Yogic breathing techniques can be hazardous unless taught by a qualified teacher and in small groups where the welfare of

Can anyone describe what is actually taught in Silva Mind Control?(now known as Silva Method). Two, what are indications that a teacher, trainer or 'guru' is making covert use of Neurolinguistic Programming?

Its prospective title will be 'Bounded Choices: The Dilemma of the True Believer', with University of California Press as the publisher. I think this will be based on Lalitch's Ph.D thesis--she recently passed defense and will join the sociology department at Cal State Chico as an assistant professor--you might contact her and see about trying to transfer to Chico to take some clas

Unless I am mistaken, Goldie Hawn was once linked to Satya Sai Baba, as was whoever started the Hard Rock Cafe chain. SSB is renowned for his psychic powers and miracles and is considered God in human form. His ashram is in Puttaparthi, in southern India. Recently some news has come out that SSB has been a long time pedophile who targets young boys and men, and may well have faked many of his all

It's marvellous that you're in your forties and have already found a career in education. What steps did you take to accomplish this? Did you have to return to school? How did you manage the stress of it all. And how did you find a way to structure life on your own terms when you left the structure of Jehovah's Witnesses?
