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.

Sinai Medical School, died peacefully on December 3, 2003 at the age of 69.  A graduate of Harvard University and the University of Virginia Medical School, Dr. Halperin, in addition to being a published poet,  was the editor of Psychodynamic Perspectives on Religion, Sect, and Cult, as well as many articles on cults.  A long-time board member of AFF, Dr. Halperin contributed a number of articles to Cultic Studies Journal, including "The Dark Underside: Cultic Misappropriation of Psychiatry and Psychoanalysis" and "Cults and Children: the Abuse of the Young" (with Arnold Markowitz, M.S.W.).
