I know it's short notice but:-

International Cultic Studies Association
Formerly AFF, American Family Foundation &
The Psychology Faculty, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid


Psychological Manipulation, Cultic Groups, and Other Alternative Movements

Madrid, Spain, July 14-16, 2005

The International Cultic Studies Association (ICSA) is an interdisciplinary network of academicians, professionals, former group members, and families who study and educate the public about social-psychological influence and control, authoritarianism, and zealotry in cultic groups, alternative movements, and other environments. Founded in 1979 as AFF (American Family Foundation), ICSA took on its current name in late 2004 to better reflect the organization's focus and increasingly international and scholarly dimensions.

Looking for a person who attended.
I am trying to find one of the people who spoke at the conference; Danielle Glixon. She was my best friend until her father sent her away when she was 15. I have been trying to find her for almost 10 years.

I have tried finding her through her name online, since it is so unusual, but I have not been able to find her.

Is there anyway I can let her know I am looking for her? I know asking for her address or phone number is a bit too much, but can you let her know her friend Dagny Lovorn has been looking for her for a very long time?

Thank you.

Mention that you are trying to contact Miss Glixon (and why), and if they could forward your details on to her.

Philip Elberg who is the director of ICSA presented one of the workshops with her.
