Our board member Alexandra Stein has just done an excellent interview on Chicago Public Radio, entitled “After Charlottesville: the psychology behind extremism and cults.”

She and host Jerome McDonnel discuss the inherent similarities in all coercive situations, whether they be in an intimate relationship or in a high-control group, religious, political or even financial, and framing the experience of being in an abusive group in terms of Attachment Theory. An excellent listen.

What do you think about this interview? Do you agree? Have you read Alex’s book? Do you have a story about totalism that you’d like to share? We’d love to hear from you!
