Any researchers or students of cultic studies in the TM-Free Blog readership? If so, you may be interested in this. I received an email from the International Cultic Studies Association (ICSA) on July 22, 2015, stating in part:
During recent annual conferences, ICSA has held a special pre-conference workshop for researchers and students interested in conducting scientific research in cultic studies. At the 2015 workshop in Sweden, researchers decided to set up an online forum through which they could share notes, plan, and give or receive advice or assistance. This forum will be open only to academic and clinical researchers and students involved in planning and/or conducting cultic studies research.
The forum is especially interested in helping students and young researchers.
If you are a researcher/student, please complete a short online survey, which should only take a few minutes of your time. Even if you are not interested in participating in the forum, please complete the survey. The information you provide will help the ICSA Research Committee plan for the future.

I hope some of our readers will find this forum helpful!
