Subject:Re: query on false memory

Lisa,

Try Thomas Lyon's website. He has a ton of articles, some directly

refuting Loftus. He also has major credentials.

Here is the leadership council's page on PAS:

http://www.leadershipcouncil.org/1/pas/1.html



They have credentials, too. Both sites have multiple full text articles.



For dramatic personal stories, try Courageous Kids, a network of PAS

victims--children torn from protective parents and given to their

abusers by judges who were at best gullible, and at worst

collaborators. I heard about them from participants in the Battered

Mothers Custody Conference.

For top quality research on recovered memory, see Jennifer Freyd's web

site. Here is the link to her online articles:

Hope this helps!!
