Subject:Re: Good touch - bad touch

You should search the literature of the late Ralph Underwager and his psychologist wife Hollida Wakefield. Before his passing, he published the journal, 'Issues in Child Abuse Accusations' He also wrote a number of books that are must reading for anyone working in this area. Some include Accusations of Child Sexual Abuse (1988) and Return of the Furies (1994) Over many years, I discussed these type problems with him but cannot remember if he wrote about this specifically. I do recall discussing Good touch -Bad touch with him. He wrote about the contamination caused by many of the other usual methodologies. Because these methods are so intrenched in the system, I believe they will always continue to be used and generate false positives. Feel free to call if you need any more information.
