    The International Cultic Studies Association (ICSA) will have a conference/workshop June 22-24, 2006 at the Sheraton Denver West in Lakewood, Colorado. There are many topics that could be of interest, but two will focus on Jehovah’s Witnesses. “Conflict in the Lives of Gay and Lesbian Jehovah’s Witnesses” by Janja Lalich, Ph.D., and “Child Abuse and the Jehovah’s Witnesses” by William Bowen and Kimberlee Norris, Esq.
    To be sure, there are many topics that former JWs might find valuable e.g., “After the Cult: Who Am I?” and “The Power of Telling Your Story” and a “Workshop for Former Group Members.” Any one interested in more information about this conference/workshop or about ICSA can go to this link:
    I’ve always been impressed with the information I received from this group. My latest e-mail from them concerning the conference say, “The audience for this conference consists of former group members, families of group-involved persons, helping professionals, researchers, and others. The sessions are organized into three "tracks" or theme areas: (1) assistance, (2) research, (3) other topics.”
    I just wanted to share if any are interested.

    It's a bit far away for me Java but thanks for posting it! It always impresses me to see the dedication of some people to help others who have been scarred by their JW experience.

    I have posted the link again for you so it is clickable...
