    I have mentioned certain books, on earlier posts adressed to TJ curioso

    What books? When I ask about books to help people that are in destructive cults, You only mention the Morelli's book, wich I think is not to help people that are in cults.

    I say:

    "I would like you to leave here a list of books that you think may help to inform the common people about the destructive sects."

    Until now You don't give a single book about what I ask.

    pls send me a pm enzo.

    From a psycological perspective here is an article on how the word cult can have damaging consequences for recovery and how psychologists and sociologists should avoid using the term. Instead the article argues the focus should be on social and psychological influences of high demand groups that anyone (not just vulnerable people) would succumb to if they experienced the full weight of it. In this way ex members are not stigmatised as somehow deficient enough to have succumbed but treated as normal people who have been entrapped. A treatment facility in a treatment setting can then go on to home in on any manipulative abuses that occurred.

    edit: In our own perception though the word conjures up all the connotations of abuse we want to convey but don't be dismayed if your therapist wants to focus on the complex web of high demand and abusive effects rather than use the term cult and appear to be dismissive.

    Police officials say the statistics prove their approach is working.

    "In 2013, we had 30 young people go to Syria," said Jorgen Ilum, Aarhus's police commissioner. "This year, to my knowledge, we have had only one. We believe that the main reason is our contact and dialogue with the Muslim community."
