Our E-Library contains full text articles and other resources related to the information below.  Click here.


Please note:

ICSA does NOT maintain a list of "bad" groups or "cults."  We nonjudgmentally list groups on which we have information.

Groups listed, described, or referred to on ICSA's Web sites may be mainstream or nonmainstream, controversial or noncontroversial, religious or nonreligious, cult or not cult, harmful or benign.

We encourage inquirers to consider a variety of opinions, negative and positive, so that inquirers can make independent and informed judgments pertinent to their particular concerns.

Views expressed on our Web sites are those of the document's author(s) and are not necessarily shared, endorsed, or recommended by ICSA or any of its directors, staff, or advisors.

Finding Information on Groups � AFF E-Library*

Group news and professional articles published since 1984 in AFF's periodicals are now available as electronic reprints and will soon be available in our E-Library, which initially will contain more than 4,500 articles and three books and eventually 5,000 to 10,000 news articles, as well as videos from AFF conferences.  Here are the periodical article lists from which you can currently request reprints:


Cultic Studies Journal electronic reprints are available through our bookstore for _aff_reprint_csj_electronic 

Cult Observer and Cultic Studies Review electronic reprints are available for _aff_reprints_co_reprint_electronic

Please send us a list of the specific reprints that interest you (copy and paste the title, volume, number, and year, if possible), e-mail, snail mail, fax, or phone in your credit card information (Visa or MasterCard only), or send a check (U.S. dollars drawn on a U.S. bank) payable to _aff_address.  We are not bothering to set these up in our bookstore because we expect to have the E-Library functioning before we could complete such an arduous task.  Once the E-Library is operational, you will be able to access everything on line.

As we develop the E-Library we are also updating this Web site by creating or upgrading HTML pages on specific groups.  These pages (which are under development) will contain, when available, links pertinent to that specific group, links to relevant articles on the Web site, and lists of resources.  Our developing group index appears at the bottom of these remarks.

Subscribers to our free E-Newsletter will be kept abreast of E-Library developments.


AFF provides information to help family members, helping professionals, former group members, and others understand the variety of interacting factors that cause different people to react differently to even powerful environments.  News stories can provide useful background information to those seeking to understand group involvements.  However, news reports don't usually provide a well-rounded or in-depth understanding of how a particular group functions, how individual personalities interact with a group environment, or what a concerned family member or friend can do to help somebody involved in a group that arouses concern.  We urge inquirers not to rely solely on newspaper or magazine articles to evaluate group-related concerns.

The resources on our bookstore and the study guides on this Web site may help you better understand how to analyze and use information effectively in order to address family or personal difficulties.

Our conferences and workshops provide you with an opportunity to interact with experts, former group members, and family members.  They can be invaluable learning experiences.


*Please review NOTE at the top of this page.  These introductory remarks are repeated on other group pages for the benefit of those who may enter the site there.  To get to indexes or other material, simply scroll down past the introduction.
