I’m working on a psychology discussion question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
First, please review this week’s resources on New Religious Movements, focusing the the key characteristics and dimensions of these movements and groups. Then, using either a Google search or the UMGC Library databases, find an article about a new religious movement that is interesting to you. (Note: either a scholarly source, such as a research journal, or an authoritative source, such as an online news article or the website of the organization, is acceptable.)
For ideas on a new religious movement to choose for this post, please see this wikipedia page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_new_religious_movements). (Note: Generally it’s best to avoid using Wikipedia as a resource; however, when it comes to getting ideas for further exploration, it can be very, very helpful!).
