For Every Person, for Every Family —
Protection Under the Law from the
Psychological Abuse of Undue Influence and Predatory Alienation


Video Presentation: Undue Influence 101

A Framework for Understanding Thought Control

Welcome to the video presentation of Undue Influence 101: A Framework for Understanding Thought Control, a panel organized by NJ Safe & Sound. Many people in government, law enforcement, education, the media, the clergy, and mental health and other helping professions, and even many affected family members do not understand the role of undue influence in abusive relationships and destructive groups — how it violates human rights at every level of society, destroys families, and contributes to crime.

Undue Influence 101 details the many ways in which undue influence can hurt people of all ages and backgrounds; explains the process of thought control; explores the ways we can cope with its effects; and highlights what we as individuals and as a society can and should be doing to protect ourselves and our loved ones from undue influence.


Part 1: The Multiple Faces of Undue Influence

Bill Goldberg explains how to recognize undue influence in everyday life. A certified psychoanalyst and clinical social worker in private practice in New Jersey, Bill specializes in treating people who have been manipulated by destructive groups and in advising families on practical strategies for intervention.
