Lois Kendall, PhD. Dr. Kendall's doctoral research examined the psychological effects of former sect membership, she looked at both first and second generation former members of sects as well as current and former members of non-sect like groups. Her research included a series of quantitative and qualitative studies. Since completing her PhD, Dr Kendall has worked on a book about the experiences of those raised in sects and recovery from that experience. She was born and raised in an English sect, which she left when she was 17.
