Dr. Steven Hassan, America’s Leading Cult Expert

Steven Hassan, PhD, is a cult expert with over 47 years of experience.

Hassan, a licensed mental health counselor (M.Ed. LMHC, NCC), is at the forefront of the cult education and recovery field, in which he has been involved since 1976.

A former cult member himself, he is an expert on the subject of mind control -- the coercive persuasion methods used by manipulative people to recruit and hold on to followers.

Exit Counseling

Exit counseling is a voluntary approach to helping those involved in cults make informed decisions about their group affiliation. But beware of some opportunists who market themselves as 'cult expert' or 'intervention specialist.'
