Not only did I gain better understanding of what happened to me and about the recovery process. Plus, TOOLS, actual things we can do to help control anxiety, recognize triggers and better manage responses . . . and to know I am not alone on this journey.
This series is an amazing primer to trauma and Complex-PTSD related to coercive groups or relationships. The instructors are so knowledgeable and relatable. The series provides participants with lots of resources. Having a chance to interact with other survivors is validating and comforting. The series made me feel excited about continuing the hard work of recovery.
The format for this series is both educational and compassionate to the needs of survivors and those in recovery from cultic and high control groups. This has been an invaluable part of my own recovery. The practical tools along with the educational components and Dr. Lalich's expertise and experience are what makes this a safe space for survivors.
This recovery series was helpful in so many ways. The facilitators all brought a different and important perspective to recovery from cult involvement. I really appreciated how much I learned about myself from other people's questions.
This has been a very important part of my recovery process. The material presented was extremely helpful, as was the opportunity to connect with others in this context.
We couldn't imagine a better learning series to help people who have been through a cult or high-control experience to make sense of what they've gone through. The tools we got both for moving forward and for dealing with the emotional issues that come up along the way were incredibly helpful.
The sessions were wonderful, insightful, and uplifting. I realized that I wasn't alone in my unique trauma. The information is invaluable and therapeutic. Janja, Sally and Beth are amazing! Listening to others tell their story was both heartbreaking and illuminating. I had no idea that there are so many different types of cults out there.
