Steve Hassan speaking to mental health professionals at the Cambridge Health Alliance on the subject of cults, undue influence, brainwashing and incorporating this approach into trauma informed treatments.
This seminar has helped establish Cambridge Health Alliance as a nationally recognized training site that emphasizes trauma-informed medical and psychiatric treatment to victims/survivors of various forms of violence. The purpose of this seminar is to discuss topics related to the psychiatric treatment of victims/survivors of interpersonal violence (e.g., childhood sexual abuse, sexual assault, intimate partner/domestic violence), community-level violence, and sociopolitical violence. Steve Hassan has been doing a lot of work on human trafficking and believes firmly that this is a form of commercial mind control cult phenomena. See his keynote speech at Ohio's Human Trafficking Day which was videotaped.
