Welcome to IndoctriNation: A weekly podcast covering cults, manipulators, and protecting yourself from systems of control.


Guilt & Shame & Love & Fear w/ Dr. Janja Lalich, cultic studies - S2E12pt2

In Part 2 of Rachel's chat with Dr. Janja Lalich, they continue their discussion on how the Dr. recovered and found her calling in cultic studies after leaving the political cult she spent many years in. The two chat on a variety of subjects: The pain of suffering in silence, the way cults use perfectionism to make its members feel inadequate, the importance of therapy in the recovery process, the psychosis of grief, the pros and cons (and social pressures) of medication, how mental health professionals can do a better job with survivors, cultic behavior in mainstream society and current events, and so much more!

Stay tuned, Before You Go: Rachel speaks about how controlling environments - be it cultic groups or abusive individuals - try to steer their victims away from therapy and medication, and how even some professionals don't always have the right answers due to inherent biases.
