Titles by Groups

Listed below are about 25,000 article titles sorted by group (it may take a few seconds to load).  This information has been collected over many years by different people, so there are some inconsistencies in coding.  However, it should give the site visitor an idea about what is available to ICSA Members through the member e-Library (Become a Member).   Keep in mind that we have collected information on many different kinds of groups for different reasons.  Nothing should be inferred from a group's or organization's appearance on this list.  These titles do NOT link to articles.  We regularly add group articles to the member e-library, and we add news summaries to the group pages on icsahome.com.  

Groups vary significantly and different persons will respond differently to the same group. We urge inquirers to read our essay on definition to avoid the temptation to oversimplify.
  • ICSA does NOT maintain a list of "bad" groups or "cults." We nonjudgmentally list groups on which we have information.
  • A listing on ICSA's web site does not mean that ICSA perceives any group to be a cult, practices coercive or destructive tactics, or is in violation of any law. It simply means that ICSA has information on the group and/or has received inquiries from current and former members, their families, professionals, researchers, the media, or the general public.
  • Groups listed, described, or referred to on ICSA's Web sites may be mainstream or nonmainstream, controversial or noncontroversial, religious or nonreligious, cult or not cult, harmful or benign.
We encourage inquirers to consider a variety of opinions, negative and positive, so that inquirers can make independent and informed judgments pertinent to their particular concerns.

Views expressed on ICSA Websites are those of the document's author(s) and are not necessarily shared, endorsed, or recommended by ICSA or any of its directors, staff, or advisers.
