      Surviving and Moving On After a High Demand Group Experience: A
      Workshop for Second-Generation Former Members

      Friday 3:00 p.m. April 26, 2013 to Sunday 2:00 p.m. April 28, 2013
      Guest House Retreat & Conference Center, Chester, Connecticut

      The International Cultic Studies Association (ICSA) has run workshops
      for former members of high-demand, “cultic” groups for many years.
      In
      recent years increasing numbers of people born or raised in such
      groups (i.e., “second generation adults” - SGAs) have attended these
      workshops.  These ex-members have special needs, which can be most
      effectively addressed through a workshop that focuses on them. This
      workshop will address the needs of SGAs through a series of brief
      didactic presentations (supplemented by written handouts) followed by
      discussions, to which attendees may contribute according to their
      comfort levels.  The workshop is only open to SGAs.
      Facilitators: Leona Furnari, MSW, LCSW  ♦  Carol Giambalvo  ♦  Lorna
      Goldberg, MSW, LCSW  ♦  William Goldberg, MSW, LCSW  ♦  Rosanne
      Henry,
      MA, LPC  ♦  Patrick Rardin  ♦  Ann Stamler, MPhil

      in
      Groups (July 3rd – Preconference events)

      July 4–6, 2013
      Trieste, Italy

      The International Cultic Studies Association (ICSA) is conducting its
      2013 Annual International Conference jointly with SOS Abusi
      Psicologici, Exit S.C.S. Onlus, and Info-Secte/Info-Cult.

      including academicians, researchers, helping professionals, former
      and
      current group members, families, attorneys, clergy, educators, and
      others.  More than 100 speakers will present in English and/or
      Italian.
      In addition to numerous other sessions, two topic tracks are planned
      in English.  One track will examine various aspects of the question
      “Are there cultic aberrations in the Catholic Church?” Contributors
      will include priests and other clergy, researchers, mental health
      professionals, and other individuals discussing specific examples of
      cultic aberrations.  A second track will examine the subject of
      “Human
      Rights, the Law, and New Religious Movements: Finding a Balance.”
      Participants will include law professors, attorneys, researchers,
      mental health professionals, and others.
