Resources designed to help thoughtful families and friends understand and respond to the complexity of a loved one’s cult involvement, controlling relationship and environments.
Since 1984, Cult Mediation has helped people with destructive cults, mind control, brainwashing, parental alienation, estrangement, abusive relationships, gurus, multi-level marketing, violent extremism and other forms of undue influence.
OUR PHILOSOPHY IS TO HELP FAMILIES AND FRIENDS UNDERSTAND AND EFFECTIVELY RESPOND TO THE COMPLEXITY OF A LOVED ONE’S CULT INVOLVEMENT.
Our approach is based upon this philosophy and emphasizes careful strategy, education, and awareness of modern norms.
How Does Cult Mediation Work?
Step 1: Free Initial Evaluation
We provide a Free Initial Evaluation – a thirty-minute telephone consultation.
The initial consultation will give you an opportunity to ask specific questions about our background and approach.
This also provides us with an opportunity to see if mediation or intervention is appropriate for your situation. Fill Out An Intake Form download pdf
If an Intervention or Mediation is appropriate, we conduct an overview to further assess the situation and help prepare you.
We will review basics of your situation and family’s concerns, including impressions from each family member. As appropriate, we will conduct information gathering on the leader and group.
Common Questions Answered at This Stage:
What does the group believe? What are the practices? How does the group gain loyalty and submission? What is the ‘experience’? Why do people join and leave high-control, abusive groups?
