Special Events: Overview


ICSA has been running conferences for more than 20 years. They are very popular.

However, because ICSA is international in scope, many individuals are not able to attend ICSA's annual conference..

That is why ICSA has begun to organize special events in various metropolitan areas. Sometimes the event may be a half-day or full-day in length. Others are what we call "ICSA Conversations."

In the fall of 2017 ICSA will bedgin to organize "ICSA Conversations" in different cities. An ICSA Conversation consists of a stimulus talk (20 - 30 minutes) followed by 60 - 90 minutes of discussion. ICSA Conversations are listed on the left and on the  ICSA Calendar. Sometimes ICSA Conversations are combined with local meetings.

Whatever the case, special events that are geographically dispersed give more people an opportunity to meet experts and others who are interested in cults, psychological manipulation, trauma, and related subjects.

Information on many past events and conferences can be found in ICSA's event archive.

If you want to be sure to receive announcements of future events, make sure you are on ICSA's email list.

We hope to develop local interest groups that can work with the ICSA conference committee to set up more events and local meetings in more cities, preferably on a regular basis. Contact ICSA if you are interested in helping to organize an event or ICSA Conversation in your area.
