Psychotechnologies in religious organisations and the reflexion theory
Abstract:
Given in this paper on the examples of totalitarian sects is the general complete representation of methods of psychological influence used in cult organizations. For these purposes the typical mechanisms used in their activity are examined in the context of the reflective control organization. Such psycho technologies formed in cult organizations are using now more widely for the interests of individual persons and groups harming social interests (it's especially brightly revealed in terrorist acts and mass suicide acts) and this shows the importance of the problem raised. It's believed that such complete approach will allow making first steps towards more perfect rules of ethic and law for managing the activity of cult organizations including totalitarian sects. Offered in this paper is also an attempt to analyze the selected methods of psychological influence according to the theory of moral choice of V.A. Lefebvre. Such approach is believed to appear rather fruitful for sharing out and understanding base reflective processes on which such destructive influence is directed. It'll also assist to find effective psycho-social technologies to help persons got under influence of totalitarian sects (leaving and rehabilitation).
