Overview

As one of the most hotly debated topics of the past decade, false memory has attracted the interest of researchers and practitioners in many of psychology's subdisciplines. Real-world issues surrounding the credibility of memories (particularly memories of traumatic events, such as sexual abuse) reported by both children and adults have been at the center of this debate. Were the adults actually retrieving repressed memories under the careful direction of psychotherapists, or were the memories being "created" by repeated suggestion? Were children telling investigators about events that actually happened, or were the interviewing techniques used to get at unpleasant experiences serving to implant memories that eventually became their own? There is evidence in the psychological research literature to support both sides, and the potential impact on individuals, families, and society as a whole has been profound.

This book is an attempt to cut through the undergrowth and get at the truth of the "recovered memory/false-memory creation" puzzle. The contributors review seminal work from their own research programs and provide theory and critical evaluation of existing research that is necessary to translate theory into practice. The book will be of great value to basic and applied memory researchers, clinical and social psychologists, and other professionals working within the helping and legal professions.

Disc. current debates incl. retrieval vs. creation, credi- bility, interviewing techniques, authority, more.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The latest scientific salvos in the fierce debate of the past decade over whether adults were actually retrieving repressed memories under the careful direction of psychotherapists, or the memories were being created by repeated suggestion; and whether children were telling investigators about events that actually happened, or the interviewing techniques used to get unpleasant experiences were serving to implant memories that eventually became their own. The focus of the eight studies is the interface between basic research in memory and how people use memory to solve other types of problems, sometimes forensically significant. Annotation c.
