Geoffrey Wallis is an active Jehovah’s Witness who uses his unique position as a critical insider to provide commentary on the social psychology of the organization and raise awareness of how coercion in the group leads to Religious Trauma Syndrome in disillusioned members. As Wallis puts it in A Voice From Inside, he was “heavily involved in both attending and instructing specialized schools and training programs sponsored by the Watch Tower Society”. Upon disillusionment, he suffered some of the worst symptoms of Religious Trauma PTSD including depression, anxiety, panic attacks, and suicidal ideation. Now in full recovery, Wallis puts his family and community relationships in jeopardy to bring awareness to those suffering from Religious Trauma and the challenges of Physically-In-Mentally-Out (PIMO) Jehovah’s Witnesses who feel trapped by the captive policies of the organization.
