Modern history of cults from Charles Manson to today with a detailed description of the cult intervention process written by cult expert and intervention specialist Rick Alan Ross. NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- How do individuals get involved with cults in the first place, and what steps can be taken to “deprogram” and heal those who have been drawn into these damaging groups? These questions and more are addressed in Cults Inside Out, written by well-known cult expert Rick Alan Ross. Over the course of three decades, Ross has participated in about 500 cult interventions, provided expert court testimony, and performed cult-related work all around the world. With the help of current and former cult members, Ross demonstrates many of the tactics the groups use for control and manipulation—and, more importantly, some of the most effective methods he and other experts have used to reverse that programming. As a result, readers will find themselves armed with a greater understanding of the nature of destructive cults and an improved ability to assess and deal with similar situations—either in their own lives or the lives of friends and family members. Available now at History of Cults Cults Inside Out includes a detailed modern history of destructive cults from Charles Manson to today. An array of groups based upon religion, politics, environmental concerns, family ties and training. This carefully researched book reflects the increasing diversity of the present cult phenomenon.
