NYC Educational Outreach Committee Model Presentations. ICSA is proud to make available a series of papers on basic cultic issues developed by ICSA's New York City Educational Outreach Committee. These papers are intended as a basic introduction to various areas of interest in the broad area of cultic studies, such as how to define a cult, what impact a high-control group has on a member, what impact it has on a member’s family, and how being born or raised in a cult affects children. They may serve as templates for presentations on these subjects to diverse audiences, such as students, clergy, or mental health providers.
