An Expert Episode is Coming Your Way!

On the next episode of Generation Cult:

We’ll chat with Colleen Russell, a San Francisco Bay Area therapist who has spent about 20 years counseling people who were raised in or had joined cults. These patients make up about 75 percent of her practice, and she also reaches those who aren’t local through online workshops.

“Often they are experiencing a great amount of loss — loss of the community, loss of their family in some cases, loss of their dreams, loss of their values — and they are searching,” Colleen said. “They are very courageous in giving up or getting out of a system that they have been raised in that promotes the idea of ‘us verses them’ “
