How do you talk to a friend, family member or loved one when they have become part of a destructive cult like Scientology? What do you say? What do you not say? How do you get them to think critically about something that they have no desire or willingness to question?
In this conversation with cult therapist Rachel Bernstein, we discuss these topics in detail and break down what works and what doesn’t work. In Part 2, we talk about what sort of things destructive cults do to their members and how they scare them into not talking to family and friends. We discuss in detail how to overcome those those tactics. I also share a very personal story of how I maintained communication with my own mother despite Scientology’s efforts to separate us.
