Subject:Re: materials on prosecuting cases

I find the group of "experts" you've listed herein interesting to say the least. From Summit's theory the Child Sex Abuse Accommodation Syndrome (CSAAS) was taken to task by London, Bruck, & Ceci (2005) and same is legally inadmissible in a Court of Law in my State of Florida (Hadden v. State of Florida). And who you left off your list, Dr. Elizabeth Loftus, is arguendo the foremost memory expert in the World.

In English. Shows adult survivors talking about what happened to them and how they re-remembered; experts (including Bessel van der Kolk, Judith Herman, Ruth Lanius, Roland Summit, many more giving the science behind why and how people forget) I can send you the link on vimeo if you like..

They have just set up a child sexual abuse tribunal where they will be attempting to prosecute cases--some from as long as almost 20 years ago. Some more recent. Prosecutors who have relatively little experience with this kind of crime are suddenly doing a lot of cases and would benefit from materials. Please feel free to contact me alone at: LFontes@RCN.com Many thanks, Lisa Fontes, Ph.D.
