Book Review: True Stories of False Memories

Author: Eleanor Goldstein and Kevin Farmer 

True Stories of False Memories explores the issue of False Memory Syndrome from two different perspectives--from therapy survivors who have retracted their accusations and from siblings of patients still in this destructive form of therapy. In addition, Goldstein and Farmer provide a well-researched historical overview, aptly titled "Creating Rage," describing how this social movement developed, with its roots in the early 1970s and its fierce blossoming in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Recovered memory therapy is widely practiced by licensed psychiatrists, psychologists and clinical social workers. This book provides hope for those who have emerged as survivors of the outrageous therapy that induced false memories, and to the family members still awaiting reconciliation. No one can read this book without being convinced that recovered memory therapy is destroying the sanity of the very people it is supposed to help.
