Arm Yourself With Education

We have been receiving a higher than usual rate of Support emails and calls from people seeking help about loved ones in controlling groups and situations.

These situations can be extremely frustrating and while parents, friends and family can get very desperate for help and solutions it is important to arm oneself with as much knowledge on the topic as possible. Most situations do not resolve overnight, they require finesse, educating oneself on all aspects of the situation, strategic planning and patience.

For those struggling to get a loved one out of a cult or abusive situation we recommend educating yourself thoroughly. Educate yourself on how cults and manipulators recruit, what their tactics are, how they gain "control" over someones mind, choices etc. There are several books on the topic of Undue Influence / Mind Control, Cults and Abuse. Here are a few that we recommend.

1. Cult Proofing Your Kids by Dr. Paul R. Martin

2. Cults - What Parents Should Know by Joan Carol Ross, Ed.M and Michael D. Langone, Ph.D.

3. Freedom of Mind Helping Loved Ones Leave Controlling People, Cults and Beliefs by Steven Hassan 

We have compiled a 40 page Resource File that will assist you in looking at all the options with these type of situations. If you would like a copy e-mailed to you please send us an e-mail requesting this and in the Subject line please put "Send Resource File" - send request to :

In addition we have free pdf files on our website under the Education section that can be printed and shared. https://www.familiesagainstcultteachings.org/Cult-Education/Fact-sheets/

We are here to help in anyway that we can.
