NOTE: Please see our update entry on Exit Counseling

Exit counseling is a voluntary approach to helping those involved in cults make informed decisions about their group affiliation. It is used instead of the controversial process of involuntary deprogramming, which involves coercion.

Note, however, that some counselors claim exit counseling can be either voluntary or involuntary. To eliminate confusion, a number of exit counselors committed to doing only voluntary interventions have formed an organization of Thought Reform Consultants - the members of which have agreed to abide by a statement of ethical standards.
