Following are links to three sites that offer help regarding religious/cultic/other abuses, one site regarding sexual abuse of clients by professionals in positions of trust, two sites regarding post-abortion issues, and to my story which lists additional links.

Resources for Former Members of Restrictive Religious Groups
Practical and insightful look from Jim Moyers, a professional counselor who was involved from birth into his twenties with a restrictive religious group.


Cult Recovery: Counseling for Former Cult Members
Excellent resource for helping with issues regarding cultic abuse. John Knapp, a licensed therapist, was involved for 23 years in a cultic group and specializes in cult recovery counseling.



Spiritual Abuse Recovery Resources: Resources and information for Christians who do not want to leave their faith, but who have experienced or wonder if they are experiencing spiritual abuse in their church setting. Executive director for this site is, Jeff VanVonderen.



AdvocateWeb: Helping Overcome Professional Exploitation
AdvocateWeb offers:
Extensive free resources for victims, survivors, and their families, friends,
victim advocates, and professionals.
Sexual misconduct, exploitation, and abuse of clients by professionals in positions of power, authority, or trust is a serious and prevalent problem. This includes:
*Mental health professionals, counselors, therapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, etc.
*Medical professionals, doctors, nurses, physical therapists, etc.
*Clergy, youth ministers, etc.
*Educators, school teachers, college professors
*Coaches
* Attorneys
* Law enforcement professionals, officers, jailers, crisis intervention, victim services, etc.
* Military


After Abortion
Pagans for Life
The above links discuss mental, emotional, and physical effects abortion can have. I like these sites because they delve into biological and psychological post-abortion issues and are more religiously neutral; yet offer links to religious prolife support if one is inclined toward that direction.


Additional sites are listed at the end of my story: http://poetrypages.com/phpBB3/viewtopic ... 55&t=55346 .
