Recovery from Harmful Religion
"The effects of authoritarian religious training can last a long time and run deep, seriously impacting your ability to enjoy life. Often people have intense feelings and are not sure about how to move forward with a new framework for living. A person knowledgeable in human development can guide you through steps to rebuild your life and strengthen areas of personal development.
As a "recovering fundamentalist" myself, and with years of experience working with people coming out of many dogmatic religious traditions, I have written a self-help book called Leaving the Fold: A Guide for Former Fundamentalists and Others Leaving Their Religion. For some time now, I have consulted with people of many backgrounds – evangelical and Pentecostal Christian, Mormon, Jehovah Witness, Seventh-Day Adventist, Scientology, Eastern groups, and any organizations of a cultish nature.
I have also put together a companion website that focuses on recovery from harmful religion: www.journeyfree.org
Here is a clip of an interview I gave with Dr. Valerie Tarico, in which I outline what I see to be the abusive effects of indoctrination by authoritarian religion."
