Cults and extremist groups are extremely prevalent, alluring, and dangerous…and many of us are susceptible to them. During this session, a former Moonie (member of the Unification Church) and a psychologist who is an expert in the treatment of former cult members will share their personal stories and explain why extremist groups are so compelling, why and how people join, and why it is so difficult for members to leave. Students will begin to understand how to identify a cult, how to avoid becoming seduced into one, and how to help someone who is currently involved.
Fee: $35.00
