Note: The first comparison compares InterVarsity Christian Fellowship (ICVF) graduates to former Catholics; two-tailed p values were used, as there were no directional hypotheses.  The second contrast compares former International Church of Christ  (ICC) members to both non-cultic groups; one-tailed p-values were used, as the former ICC members are hypothesized to be more impaired than members of the comparison groups.  Standard deviations are listed in parentheses.  Two IVCF graduates did not complete the IES Avoidance Scale, and one IVCF graduate did not complete the IES Intrusive scale.  One Catholic did not complete the Trait Anxiety Inventory.
