The False Memory Panic…

February 10, 2015 With three experts on the false memory of sexual abuse

…..┬áthat swept the country for ten or so years was at its height when we did this program. Thousands of female “patients” were persuaded by stupid and/or incompetent “psychologists” that they had been sexually abused by their fathers or by others when, in fact, nothing of the sort had happened. The psychological injuries to those who had these false memories implanted and to those they accused still persist though the social panic has, by now, died out. In the middle of that period of panic we did a close analysis of what was happening. Our guests were three valuable debunkers, one a psychiatrist. another a psychologist and, as well, a lawyer who helped the nation to put this harmful myth aside.
