Subject:RE: query on false memory

This is one of the best references I have come across on this issue:



Williams, L.M. (1995). Recovered memories of abuse in women with documented child sexual victimization histories. Journal of Traumatic Stress, 8, 649-674.



A substantial portion of the women in this study had forgotten their abuse experiences at some point during their development -- some had eventually recovered their memories; some still had no recollection of the abuse. All of the sexual abuse had been documented in hospital records.



Best,

Denise

Subject: query on false memory



Dear COlleagues,

A colleague in Puerto Rico has asked me urgently for materials (in Spanish or English) to challenge a defense attorney who is using Loftus and Cecci's work on false memory to try for the acquittal of a father accused of sadistically abusing his 6 year old child. THis is a high profile case.



If you will send me articles in electronic form or links I'd be most grateful and will pass them on to her immediately.



Thanks.
