UK Recovery Workshop

Did you grow up in a strict religion?

Did you spend all or part of your childhood in a cult?

Did you spend all or part of your childhood in an extremist authoritarian sect?

Did you spend all or part of your childhood in a new religious movement?

Did you spend all or part of your childhood in a new religion?

If you think that you might answer yes to any of the above questions then you may be interested in attending a workshop specifically designed for born/raised former members of extremist authoritarian sects, which are sometimes known as cults, sects, new religious movements or new religions. Alternatively your group may have been a non-religious group; perhaps it was a therapeutic, or political group.

The DialogCentre UK in cooperation with Buckinghamshire Chilterns University College are running a one-day workshop on Saturday the 8th of May 2004. This workshop aims to help individuals deal with some of the difficulties that they might encounter after leaving such groups. It will aim to cover a number of topics including:

Dependency issues
Individual differences and resilience
The grieving process
Distortion of self; identity
Abuses of logic
Decision making
Social interaction
The transition into another culture

Post-group re-evaluation

If you would like to find out more information about this workshop then do get in touch by contacting Lois Kendall by post, e-mail or telephone and providing a name and postal address or telephone number where you can be contacted. This will be kept entirely confidential.

Sounds like a bit of a pitty-party, with a name like that. Perhaps something with more of an upbeat undertone would be better. Such as, "kick-ass club". Well I'm sure someone will come up with something better. I hope nobody has been offended by my comments. Keep up the good work lads.

The cost for the workshop is 10 for each person who attends. This includes a light lunch and refreshments throughout the day. We are hoping to have 8 - 12 people attending the workshop. The workshop organisers will not pocket any money from this workshop. The workshop is non profit making.(reply to this comment

To be fair, 10 is a very reasonable fee for an event such as that. Particularly since the expected audience is so small.(reply to this comment

Maybe it's because we're not all made of the same metal and some people need that kind of support.(reply to this comment

Yes, my friend JW, as always, the wise level head of the great German folk. I guess workshops and 12 step programs have their benefit for the masses. A clean ass is worth shitting for.(reply to this comment

He was banned from this site because of his sick views. He has promoted child abuse and stood up for offenders and even suggested that one sexually abused girl actually enjoyed the sex when raped buy an older man. He was even arrested for beating his own son when his X wife finally had enough and called the cops.
He has been in and out of mental hospitals over the last few years and if you read any of his rantings you would probably think he needs to be put back into one.(reply to this comment
