Editor’s note: Cindy has put a ton of work into compiling just about anything you could ever want to know about TLC’s the Duggar family. Posting this at NLQ so we can have a reference to all that is Duggar and Quiverfull. Thanks for doing this Cindy!

As part of a presentation, I decided to create what is essentially an online bibliography for those interested in background information about the Duggars, the Independent Fundamental Baptists (IFB), Gothard, Quiverfull, and the Troubled Teen Homes within the IFB. Information about them all can be accessedView from Here at the new site, Redeeming Dinah.

 

Overviews of these subjects are provided/  Just the tabs at the blog’s header for pages of info that include brief descriptions, helpful links and videos.
As part of that effort, I turned a fairly extensive email interview with a journalist about a year ago into a blog series at the new site. I hope will provide resources and encouragement to those who have exited the high demand systems listed above. It was a nice opportunity to review and consolidate information to make it more accessible.

This series of posts draws from the information shared with a journalist in August of 2015 who had questions about the Quvierfull Movement as it related to the Duggar Family.

(Special thanks to Suzanne Titkemeyer and NLQ for helping me to select some of the best material in response to the questions regarding birthing.)

Follow links to excerpts from the interview, organized here by topic.

Cindy is a member of the Spiritual Abuse Survivor Blogs Network.

Cynthia Mullen Kunsman is a nurse (BSN), naturopath (ND) and seminary graduate (MMin) with a wide variety of training and over 20 years of clinical experience. She has used her training in Complementary and Alternative Medicine as a lecturer and liaison to professional scientific and medical groups, in both academic and traditional clinical healthcare settings. She also completed additional studies in the field of thought reform, hypnotherapy for pain management, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) that is often associated with cultic group involvement. Her nursing experience ranges from intensive care, the training of critical care nurses, hospice care, case management and quality management, though she currently limits her practice to forensic medical record review and evaluation. Most of her current professional efforts concern the study of manipulative and coercive evangelical Christian groups and the recovery process from both thought reform and PTSD.

She blogs at Under Much Grace and Redeeming Dinah.
