The final touches are being done by cult expert Glenn Samuels on his book about the controversial cult of Scientology. Topics include whether Scientology is a religion, a business, a cult, or a “destructive cult”. Glenn also covers practical and time honored guidelines on how to regain freedom of thought after one has been victimized by cult mind control. One of the key breakthroughs Glenn has achieved in this book is being able to inform when a “true believer” is approachable to share information with and when to begin interventions. Knowing when to begin an intervention and knowing when to share anti-cult information is critical to intervention help. The new book is a unique handbook that offers hope to parents, family members, and friends of loved ones who got involved in cult abuse.
A note on exit counseling: Exit counseling (or cult counseling) is different than regular therapy. A cult expert truly understands the difficulties a former member has been through. Cult deprogramming is not safe and is against the law whereas exit counseling is an authorized form of therapy. The victims of cult abuse and cult mind control have a special set of problems that someone who’s been through it, like Glenn, can speak to.
