Centre contre les manipulations mentales

The Centre contre les manipulations mentales (Centre against mind control), widely named CCMM or Center Ikor Roger, is a French anti-cult association.

The association was founded in 1981 by the writer Roger Ikor, winner of the Prix Goncourt in 1955, after the suicide of his son, a follower of Zen macrobiotic.

The CCMM was chaired from 1997 to 1998 by Alain Vivien.[1] Before resigning to become president of the Interministerial Mission for the Fight against Sects (MILS), he hired his wife as executive director.[2]

Patricia Vivien had an important role in the CCMM, and eventually had more power than the president.[3]

The writings of CCMM are a source of information for organizations such as the MIVILUDES.[4]

The CCMM was sometimes criticized, notably because of financial disclosure and the important role of Mrs Viven when her husband was president of the MIVLUDES, which led to a collusion between both associations.[3] Priest Jean Vernette also criticized the association for the publication of its book entitled Dictionnaire des sectes which contains a list of cults, including some Roman Catholic groups.[5]
