New Session Announcement!

Upcoming presentation in the ICSA Monthly Mental Health Educational Series 2022:

  • Sunday, April 3rd, 12:00 - 1:30 pm EDT: ‘The Cult Pseudo Identity and the Phases of Recovery and Growth’ presented by Gillie Jenkinson

Session Information
Dr Gillie Jenkinson will discuss the rationale for being informed by the Phases of Recovery and Growth when working with former cult members. She will explore how a psychoeducational approach can assist the individual to unlayer and dismantle their cult pseudo-identity. The therapist can then work with the former member’s authentic autonomous identity and not the cult pseudo-identity. The client can then recover and grow, free of the influence and control of the cultic experience.

About the Monthly Mental Health Education Series:

We are looking to build our mental health network!

This overview presentation will introduce our monthly series of educational programs for our mental health community. Each month will feature a different clinician discussing some aspect of clinical work. Each presentation will serve as a stimulus for discussing clinical issues, which will take place during the following hour.

This series will occur as zoom meetings, which will allow attendees the ability to turn on/off their camera as well as on/off their mic to ask questions as they feel comfortable. The first half-hour of each presentation will be recorded and available on the ICSA Youtube Channel. The discussion portion will not be recorded.

International Cultic Studies Association (ICSA) has been approved by NBCC as an Approved Continuing Education Provider, ACEP No. 6893. ICSA is solely responsible for all aspects of the programs.
