Manipulation, cult groups, sects, and new religious movements
Cultic Studies Review: An Internet Journal
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,
Cultic Studies Review�s interest areas include a family of
related yet distinct phenomena (described in an essay posted on www.cultinfobooks.com
�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.
