Transcript of Scientology Presentation
What Is Scientology?
The story begins with Dianetics...
...and a science fiction writer...
...named L. Ron Hubbard
A book by L. Ron Hubbard which sets out self-improvement techniques
Dianetics described techniques designed to rid the mind of irrational fears and psychosomatic illnesses.
Individuals could assist each other in the application
of Hubbard’s “auditing” techniques
Dianetics is only part of Scientology...
...because it deals with the mind, while Scientology deals with the soul (thetan)
Are you Clear?
Scientology claims to offer techniques to improve studying, achievement, gaining human rights, being a better person and partner, a better parents, and to stay away or recover from drug addiction
We would consider most of these techniques as relating to mental health
So why does one need Scientology when there is already a mental health industry?
Scientology understands psychiatry as an "Industry of Death."

Church of Scientology...
Copyright and trademark laws
"Attack the Attacker" policy
Allegations of criminality
