Moving On: Dealing With Family Members Who Have Caused Us Harm

Lorna Goldberg and Ann Stamler
This article is based on a presentation by Lorna Goldberg at ICSA’s annual Workshop for Those Born/Raised in Cultic Groups in Chester, Connecticut, in which she discusses each year the very difficult question of how we who were born or raised in cultic groups feel today about the people who caused us harm as we were growing up, especially our families. Her presentation has two goals: one is to identify the issues we face; the other is to suggest how we might address those issues. She does not offer answers; she offers a framework we can use to find what works for us.

The Top 11 Myths Used to Justify Abusive Groups

People use many justifications to explain why a group is not a cult. Most are ingrained misconceptions about the term ‘cult’. If we learn to recognize these myths, we can stop public excuses for abusive groups, and strip away the groups’ own camouflage. It is just as important for us to know what doesn’t make a group not a cult as it is to know what does.
