Mission Statement

The International Cultic Studies Association (ICSA) provides information, education, advocacy, and support to those adversely affected by or interested in cultic and other high-control groups and relationships. Grounded in a foundation of ethical principles, research-based knowledge, and a commitment to education, we serve as an open, professional, nuanced, and egalitarian resource for professionals, survivors, families, researchers, and the public. We embrace diversity, dialogue, respect, freedom, and inclusivity in all our endeavors.


ICSA fulfills its mission by applying research and professional perspectives to:

  • Help former members of cultic and other high-control environments

  • Provide guidance and support to families of people involved in high-control environments

  • Educate the public about psychological manipulation and the harmful effects of high-control environments

  • Encourage, support, and conduct research to advance understanding of psychological manipulation and high-control environments

  • Support helping professionals interested in this area
