The Evolution of Destructive Cults and Radical Indoctrination Online

In 2021, Rick Alan Ross agreed to speak at the Conference on Religious Trauma. He was a highlight of the entire conference, and his talk is just as relevant a year later, so we have posted it for free on the CORT YouTube channel. You can watch it for free here:



Rick Alan Ross is the founder and Executive Director of The Cult Education Institute. He is an internationally known expert regarding destructive cults, controversial groups, and movements and the author of the book "Cults Inside Out: How People Get In and Can Get Out."


Since 1982 he has been studying, researching, and responding to the problems often posed by controversial authoritarian groups and movements. Ross has been qualified and accepted and testified as an expert witness in court proceedings across the United States, including in US Federal Court. He has also frequently assisted local and national law enforcement and government agencies. He has personally assisted thousands of families in an effort to help the victims of destructive cults, groups, and movements.


The Conference on Religious Trauma aims to raise awareness about religious trauma syndrome.
