The Fellowship of Catholic Ex-Jehovah's Witnesses
Presents:
The Welcome Home! Catholic Conference
Note: Jehovah's Witnesses are a high-control group whose theological
strangeness in comparison with Christianity is mated to a demanding and
oppressive internal social structure.  Several features of our agenda will deal
directly with the mental, emotional, and social effects of life in such a group.

These aspects of the program will be of interest, not only to former JWs and
family members of JWs, but also to anyone with a history in a high-control
group, or anyone in a helping position with such a person.

We strongly appeal to Catholic social workers, counselors, and other mental
health providers to come and learn how to effectively help people with this
history. Priests, DREs, and catechists will benefit from understanding how to
meet the unique needs of this population as they enter the Catholic Church
in increasing numbers.
