Psychological Manipulation, cult groups, sects, and new religious movements


Periodicals: Cultic Studies Review: An Internet Journal

Dear Readers,


Announcing Cultic Studies Review

AFF is proud to announce Cultic Studies Review: An Internet Journal of Research, News & Opinion (CSR). Although CSR constitutes a great cyberspace advance for AFF, the organization will continue to inform its supporters who are not online by publishing a triennial, bound, print version of CSR. The new periodical merges and expands AFF�s Cult Observer, Cultic Studies Journal, and Cults and Society. The newsletter, AFF News Briefs, will complement Cultic Studies Review.

Current subscribers of the Cult Observer and/or Cultic Studies Journal and/or Cults and Society will receive the new periodical, which will, especially online, include more news and articles than were published in the old periodicals.

The first online issue will be a free examination copy. If you do not subscribe to any AFF periodicals, make sure you check out CSR. We will notify you when we begin to post articles online, probably in early February. The print version will be mailed in March to current subscribers of AFF periodicals. The final issues of Cult Observer and Cultic Studies Journal will be mailed in late January and late February, respectively.

Cultic Studies Review�s interest areas include a family of related yet distinct phenomena (described in an essay posted on and, �The Definitional Ambiguity of �Cult� and AFF�s Mission�), as well as practical responses to concerns people have about these phenomena. Thus, Cultic Studies Review provides information on cults, psychological manipulation, psychological abuse, spiritual abuse, brainwashing, mind control, thought reform, abusive churches, extremism, totalistic groups, authoritarian groups, new religious movements, charisma, alternative and mainstream religions, group dynamics, exit counseling, recovery, and practical suggestions for families, individuals, helping professionals, clergy, journalists, researchers, students, educators, and others interested in these topics.

Please take advantage of our Free Trial Subscription now.
