Kathryn interviews social psychologist Alexandra Stein PhD, author of “Terror, Love & Brainwashing: Attachment in Cults and Totalitarian Systems”. What are the dangers of extreme psychological control? Dr. Stein draws on her 25 years of research to explain how almost anyone can be radically manipulated to participate in dangerous and incomprehensible acts. A survivor of a political cult herself, Dr. Stein draws upon her own experience, as well as stories from a range of religious, political and commercial cults, in order to portray the psychological impact of these environments.
