Went to a Landmark Forum Intro today as a guest and when i went to speak to someone with a question, I was practically hounded, made to sit on a chair and told that my ‘stubborness to simply register is the reason why i need landmark’. Any sane person would want to know what they are signing up for. I’ve been shocked by my experience of Landmark and the bullyish pushy nature of the leader and the guys sitting all round the room demanding you take your card out and pay. I must have been asked for my card 10 times and told to get it ‘quickly’ and ‘now’. I was even pulled by my hand and taken to a table, given a pen and told to put my name down on the registration card ‘now’! lol it beggers belief the way these guys operate. I’ve come home rather offended (naturally) and been looking online at some reviews. If the product is so good why do they have such a great need to shove it in your face to the point where it hits bullyish sales behaviour? found the following online.. www.huffingtonpost.com/karin-badt/inside-the-landmark-forum_b_90028.html Andy Testa, on the other hand, posted an account of his experience with Landmark Forum, in which he claims that he was hounded by recruiters who insisted that his resistance was proof he needed their help. Some people claim to have had breakdowns after attending such programs as Landmark Forum [see Lell, who had one after attending Landmark sessions, and Abstracts of Articles in Psychological Journals concerning est and The Forum]. According to Robert Howe, Stephanie Ney, 45, claims that a two-day Landmark Forum seminar “stripped her of her natural psychological defenses and unleashed the specter of a failed relationship with her father,” leading to a nervous breakdown and commitment to a psychiatric clinic. Yet, many of those who seek out cults like Scientology or self-help programs such as Landmark are troubled already. Some are deeply troubled and the training might send them over the edge. But whose fault is that? Such people might have gone to the movies and been pushed over the edge, like “Heinrich Pommerenke, who was a rapist, abuser, and mass slayer of women in Germany.” He “was prompted to his series of ghastly deeds by Cecil B. DeMille’s The Ten Commandments.”* (A woman who took est when she was 17 wrote me: “The intent of these seminars is to dig in deeply, without providing any aftercare. In that sense, they are responsible. They are taking money, knowing what they are trying for, not allowing people’s natural defenses to operate that tell them when it’s a good idea to dig. Then, the programmers walk away. Even for non-deeply troubled people, this is a concern and the impact can be negative.” Programmers should be trained to handle “troubled” people and should know that they can’t push every participant to the same degree without occasional disastrous results.) .
