So I did the google thing re Hassan - he has a webpage - http://www.freedomofmind.com --- which I hope the moderators contact him about to have RSE included --- lots of helpful info. Also found a talk online he gave to a group of ex-Mormons. Two significant 'bits' for me -- you're not stupid 'cause you ended up in a cult; and love is the ultimate 'tool' to help someone out of a cult. Other good references and info in the talk - including suggestions re helping someone out of a cult.
