WHY WE USE SYMBOLS/ICONS IN OUR LISTS.

Please note:

ICSA does NOT maintain a list of "bad" groups or "cults."  We nonjudgmentally list groups on which we have information.

Groups listed, described, or referred to on ICSA's Web sites may be mainstream or nonmainstream, controversial or noncontroversial, religious or nonreligious, cult or not cult, harmful or benign.

We encourage inquirers to consider a variety of opinions, negative and positive, so that inquirers can make independent and informed judgments pertinent to their particular concerns.

People Who Play God

"People Who Play God exposes the manipulative world of ultra-authority. Its primary purpose is to help you understand the how's and why's of extreme manipulation. To accomplish this, it goes over Peterson's Integrated Model of Ultra-Authority in everyday language. The book then will take you on four different journeys into people's experiences with extreme manipulation, so that you can see how it works in the real world. Other topics the book addresses is how a person becomes an extreme manipulator, recovery from manipulative experiences, and how to protect yourself against manipulation."
